In the roundabout that connects Ovidio street with Federico García Lorca avenue, it has been reorganized with the elimination of the outer lane, which has been reserved as a parking area, destined for loading and unloading goods in hours from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., although the rest of the day will be free parking.
Likewise, a new pedestrian crossing has been installed in the vicinity of the Virgen de las Nieves Secondary Education Institute, located on Francisco Ayala avenue, and work has been carried out on the streets of Journalist Fernando Gómez de la Cruz and Journalist José Fernández Martínez with the creation in the latter of an area reserved for loading and unloading.
The mobility plan launched by the City Council of Granada contemplates, in turn, an intervention in the Plaza de Europa area, where there will be new signage referring to the reduction of speed to 30 kilometers per hour , while the reduction of traffic lanes in the roundabout and the establishment of a space reserved for loading and unloading, as well as parking, are planned.
This last measure will be applied to the existing roundabout in the vicinity of the headquarters of the Granada Chamber of Commerce, where improvements are also planned in the intervention between Luis Miranda Dávalos and La Argentinita Avenue.
Traffic calming will also be transferred to Periodista Eugenio Selles street, the section between the Plaza de Europa and Isidro de las Cagigas roundabouts.
The municipal proposal includes improvements to the existing traffic lights in the vicinity of the Granada bus station and addresses, at the request of the residents, the projection of a new pedestrian crossing on Jimena street.
