Martorell City Council has prepared various events to promote safer, healthier and more sustainable mobility habits. The program starts this Thursday, September 16 with the presentation of the new signage that declares Martorell Ciutat 30.

Last June, Martorell was declared a City 30 limiting speed to 30km / h on urban roads in the municipality with a single lane per direction of traffic and 20km / h on roads that have a single platform of sidewalk and road. The measure is part of Martorell’s strategy for the Climate and complies with the amendment to the General Traffic Regulations of the General Directorate of Traffic, which came into force on 10 May, all to achieve a safer city and with less air and noise pollution.

Sagarra states that “we have been reviewing the signs and we will carry out public awareness campaigns. We will link it to the new traffic regulations that will allow us to have personal mobility vehicles share the same road for greater safety for everyone. And that allows pedestrians to travel better on the sidewalks and get healthier ”.
