La campanya informativa de la zona blava arriba als turistes

foto-oficina-informacio---turi1El Consell de Formentera, a través de l’àrea de Mobilitat, ha seguit amb el desplegament de la campanya informativa sobre el servei d’estacionament regulat que s’ha implantat a les principals localitats de l’illa en els darrers anys.

“Si el mes de gener varem fer una campanya adreçada als residents, ara l’hem adaptada als visitants” segons ha explicat el conseller de Mobilitat Rafael González, que ha afegit que “amb aquesta campanya explicativa s’espera resoldre tots els dubtes d’utilització de la zona blava entre els turistes que ens visiten”.

Tríptics informatius
Els tríptics informatius editats per la campanya, així com la web, han estat traduïts a l’anglès i l’italià, per arribar a tots els visitants. En un inici la campanya s’havia fet en català i castellà. En el tríptic s’explica el funcionament i horaris de les zones d’estacionament regulat i es resolen els principals dubtes.

Els controladors del servei d’aparcament i treballadors de les oficines d’informació turística són els encarregats de repartir els 2.200 exemplars que s’han imprès (1.100 en català i castellà i 1.100 en anglès i italià), entre els turistes i els llogaters de vehicles.

“L’objectiu final però és que els propis llogaters i informadors turístics derivin als nostres visitants a la web creada per aquesta campanya, www.zonablava.com, on s’aglutina tota la informació i que així d’una manera fàcil puguin conèixer el funcionament de l’estacionament regulat a Formentera”, segons el conseller.

15 minuts per ajudar el comerç
Un dels principals missatges d’aquesta campanya versa sobre la utilització dels aparcaments de 15 minuts que han estat la novetat de la zona blava implantada en Sant Francesc i Sant Ferran. L’ús d’aquests aparcaments és gratuït per tothom, turistes i residents, que poden treure un tiquet que els permet aparcar durant 15 minuts.

Els aparcaments de 15 minuts, estan repartits de manera estratègica pels dos nuclis urbans, i es varen crear arran una petició dels comerços per afavorir la rotació de vehicles, així, segons Rafael González “els usuaris dels cotxes poden aparcar 15 minuts per fer la compra i facilitem l’accés al comerç local”.

Formentera regulates access at es Cap lighthouse May 15-October 15

cartel faro 2019-1-The Formentera Council's mobility department announces the reactivation, Wednesday May 15, of a scheme to limit motorcycle, car and moped access to es Cap de Barbaria lighthouse in 2019. The scheme will be enforced until October 15 in a bid to keep crowds at the monument to a minimum and preserve “Sa Tanca d'allà dins” as a tranquil, natural setting.

Tracing current plans to revive the apparatus to the success of last year's effort, secretary Rafael González said the setup was aimed at keeping crowds at the monument to a minimum and preserving a tranquil, natural setting.

Restricted access to the monument has been in effect the last two years, relying on a road block at kilometre marker 6.5 of the es Cap de Barbaria road. The setup was implemented on a pilot run from July 1 to September 15 in 2017 and June 25 to September 30 last year.

This year the period of regulation will be extended across the entire season to make sure visits to es Cap's far, or lighthouse, and the es Garroveret defense tower are pleasurable—and easy—for tourists and islanders alike.

With parking for 60 cars and 100 motor scooters is available on an adjacent plot, motorists can get out and walk or cycle the remainder of the path to the lighthouse.

Access for people with reduced mobility
During peak visiting hours, 11.00am to 1.00pm and 6.00pm to 10.00pm, an attendant beside the barrier will allow access to people with reduced mobility and provide visitors with information about the new measures.

The Formentera Council has put together a pamphlet that will be distributed at rental car agencies, tourist information offices and the es Cap entry and control point. Posters have also been published and will be posted at various points around the island, including Council bulletin boards.
