The candidate for the Presidency of the PP of Malaga, Patricia Navarro, highlighted this Sunday, in a meeting with affiliates in the Malaga town of Estepona, that her party “is committed to studying alternatives to mobility on the Costa del Sol”, specifying that “these solutions will be as sustainable as rail transport”.
“The party will evaluate a shock plan for mobility in the region without giving up, in any case, the train,” Navarro stressed, accompanied by the mayor and president of the Organizing Committee of the XIV Provincial Congress of the PP of Malaga, José María García Urban.
In this way, Navarro has pointed out that “the province of Malaga will continue to grow and attract people who want to come to live, work or invest as a result of the favorable fiscal climate”, detailing that “for this we must grow sustainably by making against the two main deficits that we have in the province, which are mobility and water».
As for the population and the visitors in high season to the province and the Costa del Sol, he indicated that “the summer season is getting longer and the flow of people is getting bigger”, which is why “it is very difficult for us to continue abusing the use of roads and private vehicles.
“Marbella is the only city with more than 100,000 inhabitants that does not have a rail connection,” Navarro lamented in a statement, to add that “we are not going to give up our efforts to continue claiming rail transport as the most sustainable transport, and the mobility of the future.
On this same point, he explained that, “while we await the arrival of rail transport, we need a mobility shock plan for Malaga and the areas with the highest population density”, adding that “it is necessary to start responding to residents already tourists with this provisional solution to achieve much more agile and comfortable mobility».
Likewise, he has indicated that, as soon as the congressional process in which the party is involved ends, “the Deputy Secretary for Mobility and Territorial Articulation will be created”, stressing that “it will serve so that, urgently, our mayors and our experts feel to look for the most effective and immediate solution to be able to have a sustainable alternative, without giving up rail transport at any time”.
As for water, Navarro has affirmed that the Andalusian Government of Juanma Moreno “is starting up all the hydraulic infrastructures with the money that the previous socialist governments collected through the water canon and was not executing it”, indicating that “they are developing infrastructures that had been paralyzed for decades”, giving as an example the great pipeline of the Costa del Sol.
“Now we are catching up and quick solutions must be provided,” he explained, referring to the desalination plant that has been proposed in the Axarquia region, “to provide water as quickly as possible to a fundamental sector for the economy, as is the case with the subtropics”, he concluded.
