Les excursions caminant i en bicicleta fins al far des Cap s’incrementen en un 62 % entre el dia de més afluència de 2019 i el de 2021

foto 2021 mobilitatEl Consell de Formentera, a través de l’àrea de Mobilitat, ha aprofitat la celebració avui 22 de setembre del Dia Mundial sense Cotxes, emmarcat en la Setmana Europea de Mobilitat, per donar a conèixer dades sobre el nombre de visitants que han accedit as Cap caminant en bicicleta durant el dia de més afluència de l’agost d’aquest any.

El 14 d’agost del 2021 1.090 persones, i 54 ciclistes, varen accedir as Cap, va ser el dia de màxima afluència d’aquest any, fent un total de 1.144 visites en una jornada. Al 2019 el dia de màxima afluència va ser el 10 d’agost, varen accedir caminant 676 persones i 31 ciclistes, fent un total de 707 visites en una jornada. L’increment de visitants en dos anys, si comparam aquestes dades, ha set del 62 %”, en concret els vianants s’han incrementat en un 61 % i els ciclistes en un 74 %.

El conseller de Mobilitat, Rafael González, ha volgut posar en valor que la regulació de l’accés amb vehicles de motor as Cap, que es va iniciar el 2017, “ha permès que aquest increment de visitants sigui possible sense originar problemes de saturació, aglomeracions o agressions a la zona natural”. A més, González ha afegit que “aquestes dades ens demostren que les mesures de potenciació de la mobilitat sostenible són efectives i ens mostren el camí a seguir en el futur”.

La regulació està vigent des de l’1 de juny fins al 15 d’octubre amb l’objectiu de preservar aquest paratge natural situat a la finca pública de la tanca d’Allà Dins”. Des de fa cinc temporades, es restringeix l’accés de vehicles de motor amb una barrera situada en el km 6,5 de la carretera des Cap de Barbaria. Amb la regulació es pretén garantir que l’experiència de residents i visitants en anar al far des Cap o a la torre de vigilància des Garroveret sigui satisfactòria i no es trobin amb problemes per accedir-hi.

Island issues progress report on formentera.eco as push to count and cap vehicles crowns year-3

foto 2021 balanc formen ecoThe Formentera Office of Mobility reports that 7 September marked just over three years since local government’s introduction of a ceiling on the vehicles which can be brought or driven on the island in summer. In 2021 implementation of the initiative was extended by two weeks to include the last week in June and the first in September.

Data compiled by the Consell de Formentera indicate that, on any given day during the 76-day enforcement period (24 June to 7 September), an average of 17,963 vehicles were authorised to be parked or operated on local roads. However, factoring for July and August alone (the regulatory period observed prior to 2021), the average was 18,138, or 4.4% lower than the 2020 average (18,969).

In month-to-month terms, an average of 16,170 vehicles were authorised to be parked or driven on the island in June. The average in July was 17,578 (down from 18,322 the previous year) and in August it was 18,697 (down from 19,616). The average number of cars on the road in September 2021 was 18,201.

The following is a seasonal breakdown by vehicle type and drivers’ place of residence:

August comes with spike in formentera.eco permit requests from visitors

In the regulatory scheme’s third year, quotas for visitor vehicles were maxxed out in August — a repeat of the previous year.

And, on five days in August (Saturday the 14th, Sunday the 15th, Monday the 16th, Thursday the 19th and Friday the 20th) quotas for privately owned vehicles were reached as well. In August 2020, quotas were attained on four days: Thursday the 13th, Friday the 14th, Thursday the 20th and Friday the 21st.

As for the maximum number of motorbikes, that ceiling was also hit on eleven days in August: from Saturday the 14th to Sunday the 22nd, Thursday the 26th and Friday the 27th. Last year, it happened four days: Thursday the 13th, Friday the 14th, Thursday the 20th and Friday the 21st.

Summer peaks

In summer 2021, the vehicle ceiling was set at 20,591: four per cent lower than in 2020 (21,487) and eight per cent lower than in 2019 (22,382). The ceiling is expected to be lowered 8% over the next two years.

Early conclusions

While 2021 data must still be analysed and checked against an August traffic flow study whose findings are due for release in October, mobility chief Rafael González asserted that formentera.eco had “reached its year-three objectives”. While he conceded that “traffic remains excessive and rush-hour slowdowns persist”, González said those two points meant continuing to lower the vehicle ceiling in the years ahead would all the more crucial. “Formentera must push ahead shaping an increasingly sustainable brand of mobility that’s not only appropriate to the our island’s carrying capacity, but palatable for residents and visitors”, he added.

González praised the scheme’s rigourous enforcement and hailed the absence of major adjustments to make or incidents to report. He also welcomed “the spirit of cooperation shown by the ferry companies, who have kept travelers in the loop these last two months, and the overall compliance of car rental agencies”.

Consell d’Entitats

Councillor González concluded by reporting that when complete data become available in October, the Consell d’Entitats would hold meetings with stakeholders in the island’s social and business spheres to take stock of the third season and look ahead towards 2022.

Formentera unveils mobile camera system to enforce formentera.eco

foto 2021 cameres.ecoAThe Formentera Department of Mobility has acquired a mobile apparatus to check that vehicles on local roads are duly accredited during the period of formentera.eco enforcement.

The new control system —two cameras, a tablet and modem— has been fitted into an electric vehicle emblazoned with the Consell de Formentera and formentera.eco logos. The cameras read number plates and check whether vehicles in question have an associated formentera.eco authorisation.

Mobility chief Rafael González explained that patrols, conducted by FDM staff, would take place at distinct times throughout the day.

Priced at €16,123.25, the new system, which relies on increased patrols to ensure regulations are respected, is in addition to two cameras already installed in La Savina. Those cameras scan and control the number plates of all vehicles entering and exiting the island.

This year, formentera.eco’s third, anyone operating a vehicle on local roads between 24 June and 7 September must possess the proper accreditation in order to do so. Drivers who fail obtain formentera.eco accreditation face minimum fines of €1,000.

New study looks at use of local roads

foto 2021 aforaments DThe Formentera Department of Mobility is pleased to report that Friday 6 August marks the start of a new, 10-day study of traffic density and flow on local roads. Mobility chief Rafael González said the push would mean tallying pedestrians, cyclists, motorbike riders, motorists, bus riders and cab hailers to “see where mobility is at on Formentera today”.

The initiative is included in Formentera’s Sustainable Mobility Plan, with similar efforts completed in 2017 and 2019. “This time we’ll be able to hold our findings against data from previous years”, added González, hoping the work would enable the FDM to “track changes in local mobility and weigh the effect of regulatory changes”.

Traffic flow
At peak hours of congestion during the first half of August, crews will conduct tallies of drivers, passengers and vehicles and classify them by vehicle type.

With a mix of hand and machine counts, the researchers will gauge use of Formentera’s green trails among pedestrians and cyclists as well as the popularity of publicly-subsidised transport like buses and taxis. In the port of La Savina, the initiative will also involve a visitor head count and survey, in which participants are queried on how they get around and whether they are staying overnight.
