The first plan of the president of the Council of Mallorca, Llorenç Galmés (PP), to unclog Mallorca is to enable new roundabouts and roads in the urbanizations of Llucmajor, specifically, in Son Verí Nou, Sa Torre, Puig de Ros and Maioris, to improve access to Palma.
Galmés, together with the Minister of Territory, Mobility and Infrastructure, Fernando Rubio, and the mayor of Llucmajor, Xisca Lascolas, presented this Tuesday the Son Verí Nou roundabout and road project, which has a budget of 1.8 million euros and whose purpose is to provide greater security and fluidity to the accesses to the highway, which connects the urbanizations of Llucmajor with Palma.
At the request of the Llucmajor City Council, a connecting road is also included between Baladre Avenue and the section that was formerly part of the Cap Blanc road and which is closed at the current access intersection to Son Verí Nou. This work will mean an improvement in access to the sports center and the IES de S’Arenal from the Europa Avenue roundabout.
This action is part of the Mallorca Council’s objective of improving traffic and significantly reducing traffic jams on the island’s roads. Along these lines, it should be taken into account that thousands of people who work in Palma reside in the Llucmajor urbanizations and use this road, known as the Cap Blanc Ma-6014 road, every day, and that large queues form there at rush hour.
Likewise, the Highway technicians of the Consell de Mallorca are already drafting similar projects at the entrances to the towns of Sa Torre, Puig de Ros and Maioris.
The objective is to configure a definitive solution to the circulation and access towards Palma of all the urbanizations in the center of Llucmajor, with the inclusion of civic and pedestrian roads between the population centers of the municipality.
Galmés explained that this project “falls squarely within our objective of unclogging Mallorca and improving our road infrastructure, so that Mallorcans are not immersed in circulatory collapses every day. “This is a very important work for the entire area that, in addition to improving the safety of thousands of users who pass by every day to go to work or accompany their children to school, will also imply greater fluidity in traffic.”
The president of the Consell de Mallorca has stressed “that we will not build new highways or consume more territory, but we will carry out specific improvement actions, which during the last two legislatures have not been done due to total inaction in road policies.”
Finally, he added that “the mobility problem is not solved with a single measure, but must be accompanied by a load study on Mallorca’s roads and an improvement in public transport with the help of the Government of the Balearic Islands.”
Galmés’ visit to Llucmajor is the first of the round that he plans to make to the 53 towns on the Island and that he will carry out with the Minister of Economic Promotion, Pilar Amate, and the insular director of Coordination, Beatriz Camiña.
Amate stated that “we began an institutional round of contacts with the mayors of the 53 municipalities of Mallorca with the aim of listening to their demands and being able to cover their specific needs.”
