The Councilor for Transportation of the City of Lorca, Irene Jódar, has attended this morning the placement of two large awnings, in the central square of "The Oval", which will provide shade to the users of the urban bus service of the municipality during wait for her
Jódar Pérez has explained that "awnings are being placed in the two bus stops that are located in this square of" El Ovalo ", the main places of collection of travelers of this service and spindles of the entire urban transport lines of the city â€‹â€‹with the objective that the passengers can protect themselves from the sun while waiting ".
The Edil has detailed that "specifically, two awnings of 9 meters each are being installed that will cover the bus ramp access areas located in this popular square taking advantage of the decorative infrastructure located in the place."
Irene Jódar has assured that "it was a request of the users of this service since it is an area in which during much of the day it is sunny and, therefore, passengers were forced to wait for sheltered in commercial establishments and even in the portals of the buildings located around ".
The Councilwoman recalled that "it is one of the priorities of this Government Team, which was also in our electoral program, to improve and facilitate access to urban transport for all our neighbors and we demonstrate, thus, that we are meeting commitments and resolving demands in less than two months from our entrance to the municipal government and, all this, with the few resources available.This is an action that responds to a historical demand that had not been taken into account or taken into account in account at any time of the legislature of the Popular Party. "
Jódar has shown that "this action is part of a process of gradual improvement of the complementary services of urban buses of Lorca public transport that we have started and that we will continue to carry out. Actions that join the relocation, at the beginning during the week, of a marquee on Pérez Casas Street, where the bus has not passed for years, and that has been placed on Calle Mayor, in the San Cristóbal neighborhood, thus responding to another historic neighborhood demand. "
In addition, the Edil has announced that "signals are being removed that were in areas where the bus did not pass either with the double objective of not confusing users or drivers and relocating them in streets where there is an urban transport line. And also, From September, we will relocate several canopies at some of the busiest stops, for example, at the entrance of the Saprelorca Industrial Estate. To this, we must add that we will place explanatory posters with routes, schedules and frequencies with which the service runs as it has already been done in the neighborhood marquee. "
"All this using the own resources of both the City of Lorca and the Local Police to carry out the placement of signage and marquees through the different workshop schools that are developed in the municipality. Simple and useful actions, with little cost budget, and that facilitate the displacement of the residents of Lorca and encourage the use of urban public transport, "said Irene Jodar.
