Logroño, (EFE).- The general director of Traffic, Pere Navarro, has indicated this Tuesday that the technicians have to clarify if the signaling of “Open Streets” in Logroño is a matter of signals or traffic management of the city itself .
Navarro has responded to journalists about the Ombudsman’s report, after a complaint by the PP, which warns that the horizontal signage that the municipal Executive used in some streets of the “Open Streets” program in Logroño does not comply with the regulations of traffic and road safety.
In an informative meeting prior to intervening in the conference on “Sustainable mobility and health”, he said that the technicians of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) who visited the roads intervened with “Open Streets” stated that “they were fine”.
However, he has qualified that the legal part warned that “care” should be taken in relation to signage.
«The catalog of traffic signs is from 2003, it is 20 years old, we are reviewing it and there will be a new one. The sun rises every day and the town halls have to do things, once they are consolidated, we pass it on to the Official State Gazette”, he explained.
Nor is it “clear” if it is a matter of signaling or traffic management of the city itself, so it has proposed that it be the technicians who clarify it.
«Seen globally, in mobility you have to take risks. Although at the beginning there is always a rejection of any change », she has verified.
Navarro has stressed that “time gives the answer”, but has opined that “this is a debate somewhat conditioned by the proximity of the elections, so it is a contaminated debate”, so that he has recommended “keeping a prudent distance” . EFE
