Inca Town Council is launching a project to eliminate architectural barriers and improve mobility in Avinguda de Lluc and Avinguda Antoni Maura. The works contract has already been awarded to the company Urban Illes SL for a total of 126,445.00 euros, VAT included.

“Avinguda de Lluc is one of the main arteries of our city, connecting Inca with the municipality of Selva. On the other hand, Avinguda Antoni Maura is also one of the busiest roads in the city, connecting the Blanquer area with the centre and the Cristo Rey neighbourhood,” emphasises the councillor for Urban Planning and Mobility, Andreu Caballero.

Caballero points out that “the project does not aim to completely overhaul the area, but rather to improve pedestrian crossings in order to improve mobility and accessibility, especially for people with sensory or mobility disabilities”.

Thus, the purpose of this project is to eliminate architectural barriers in two important and busy streets of the city to facilitate the mobility of pedestrians and, especially, of those with reduced mobility. In this way, the contract contemplates the punctual adaptation of the existing pedestrian crossings, in accordance with the regulations for the elimination of architectural barriers in force. On the other hand, new pedestrian crossings will be created on the perimeter pavements using the system of pedestrian ears, which will prevent vehicles from obstructing intersections and facilitate vision. In addition, the pedestrian spaces on the corners will be enlarged, favouring meeting and waiting areas. Specifically, a total of 10 pedestrian crossings are planned at the intersections of the perimeter streets.
