MERIDA — Civil organizations grouped in the Citizen Network for Sustainability in Yucatan met in recent days with Guillermo Cortés, head of the Technical Secretariat of Planning and Evaluation (Seplan), to propose and explain their demands on the matter.
“What we proposed was a pedestrian and cyclist restructuring, since only 30% of the population in Yucatan has a car, however, more than 85% of the budget dedicated to transport is directed to cars as the reencounter of avenues , bridges, roundabouts, traffic lights, everything that has to do with vehicles, while for pedestrians and cyclists there is no budget,” said Everardo Flores, director of Cicloturixes (one of the organization that demand this change).
He indicated that this is easy to see, because there are no new sidewalk works, no bike paths, no pedestrian crossings.
The second demand, he said, was to publish and disclose a motorized authority plan that was already made and paid by the State Government to a company in Monterrey, which is called Momov.
“We are interested in making it public because it is a guiding document for non-motorized mobility, and the idea of disseminating this project is for the next administration not to spend money again on another project and want to start a new plan, which is what happens in each change of government, not having a continuity of work and wanting to do another study that would take other years and carry them out as much,” he lamented.
