    During the work period, vehicles may only drive in a single lane in these affected pathways. Thus, for mobility purposes, vehicles will not be able to make two sections followed by the new green axes and will have to turn on each island. “Access to a green axis from a cross street It will imply the exit through the next transversal street”, underlines the municipal note. As for the future squares, they will no longer be able to cross as they used to do, but the vehicles will be forced to turn, according to the following scheme:

    In each street, one of the two halves will be worked on, leaving the sea or mountain side free of the works, guaranteeing a lane for residents, services and bicycles, as well as for emergency vehicles. The sidewalk will be free for pedestrians. The works will not affect access to fords and parking lots, nor will there be any damage to the public transport.
