After extensive remodeling work on both roads, Corredera de San Fernando was completed, and San Nicolas was opened to vehicular traffic. The first will be pedestrianized again on weekends and holidays, but it is only a pilot project. The City Council's Citizen Security and Urban Mobility areas reported this in the last hour.
Jeronimo Garcia, responsible councilor, explained that the opening was done with "provisional" vertical signs, as the supply company is yet unable to provide definitive signs to the Consistory. He stated that he had considered closing these streets due to their importance for traffic flow in the city, as requested by residents and merchants.
Provisional signs are used to indicate loading and unloading areas as well as parking for persons with reduced mobility, blue zone and taxi rank, along with motorcycle parking. The Corredera is now open in both directions. There are designated areas for vehicle parking. Garcia also added markings to the pavement delineating the zones.
Concerning the pilot experiment of pedestrianization in the Corredera, he said that it would be done some days a week once the shops close. From Saturday at 4 p.m. to Sunday at 11 p.m., road traffic will be restricted. Residents of the street will not be able to load or unload their cars. On holidays, the road will be pedestrianized from 9 AM to 11 PM. Some provisional pins were installed to make it possible for citizens to enjoy the street's complete renovation and renovation without the need for vehicles.
The area councilor announced that there will be an increase in police presence at the start of this start up on the roads aforesaid. This is to ensure that citizens respect the rules as well as that agents do information work and transfer pedestrians and drivers the new rules for these streets, particularly with regard to Corredera de San Fernando.
