The PSOE calls for the burying of the high-voltage line that exists in front of the Lorca bus station (11/07/2018)

The Socialists say that the recent remodeling work in the area was the perfect opportunity to undertake the burying of the high-voltage line, so they regret the missed opportunity because of the planning at the height of the killings that the Popular Party has made. the works.

The councilor of the PSOE in the City of Lorca, David Romera, has called on the PP government team to "initiate negotiations with Iberdrola to proceed to the burial and elimination of a high-voltage line that runs over the center of the city at a voltage of 20 kilovotios (kV) between the warehouses of the station of Renfe de Sutullena and the old Fábrica de la Luz ", where the public parking of Poncemar is currently enabled, in front of the Bus Station of Lorca.

It affirms that in addition to generating an important visual impact in the urban landscape, the high voltage turrets existing in José Espinosa Pomares Street, opposite the Lorca Bus Station, "constitute a hindrance to pedestrian traffic on one of its sidewalks, at the same time that all studies on the possible effects on the population of prolonged exposures to electromagnetic pollution are well known ".

Romera considers that "it is not proper that in a city like Lorca there are still high-voltage lines crossing streets and squares and residential areas in the urban center", especially the one that concerns us that stands out for its high density of homes and inhabitants, remembering that fifteen years ago the whole of the Lorca company got the commitment of Iberdrola to dismantle and move the electric substation that existed between the neighborhoods of La Viña and San Antonio, transferring it to La Hípica, "achieving one of the greatest claims of Lorca society in The last decades".

Romera regrets the missed opportunity for not taking advantage of recent works in the area to have buried this high-voltage line.

The Socialists do not know if that task was foreseen in the initial project of the works of Juan Carlos I and adjacent, since they still can not consult the project carefully because of the refusal of the Popular Party to deliver it.

Similarly, Romera emphasizes that the existing high voltage line in front of the bus station is not the only one that is lying between residential areas as there are neighborhoods such as Los Angeles, Rio, Corazón de María, San Cristóbal or Camino Viejo. of the Port whose homes are very close to high voltage lines up to 66 kV due to the growth experienced by the city.

Currently there is a legislative body in Spain that regulates the maximum exposure levels of the population and workers to electromagnetic pollution of high and low frequencies based on the criteria set by the World Health Organization (International Commission on Non -Ionizing Radiation Protection) and the Salzburg Convention of 1998 after conducting different studies on radiation levels and their effects on health: Directive 2004/40 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on minimum safety and health provisions relating to the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields);

the European Council Recommendation of 12 July 1999 on the exposure of the general public to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz) (1999/519 / EC);

or Royal Decree 1066/2001, of September 28, approving the Regulation that establishes conditions for the protection of the radioelectric public domain, restrictions on radioelectric emissions and sanitary protection measures against radioelectric emissions.

In some regions such as Navarra or Castilla La Mancha there are specific laws, but not in the Murcia Region.

For all of this, the Municipal Socialist Group is asking the PP Government team to start with Iberdrola the necessary steps to proceed with the burial and elimination of the existing 20 kV high voltage line in front of the Lorca Bus Station and that a study be carried out on the impact of existing high-voltage lines in the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Corazón de María, San Cristóbal and Camino Viejo del Puerto and that are adjacent to residential areas, "for their progressive dismantling and transfer to more distant points ".
