New push to tally users of Formentera roads starts Friday

foto 2022 carreteresThe Formentera Office of Mobility is pleased to report that an effort to determine how local roads are used will run from Friday 5 August to Sunday 14 August. "Through a combination of manual and automatic counts using sensors strategically placed on local roads, we will tally pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles and cars, as well as bus and cab riders, to assess the current state of mobility on the island of Formentera", explained Rafael González, councillor of mobility.

Conducted in 2017, 2019 and 2021, the counts are included in the island's Sustainable Mobility Plan. "This summer's data, compared with those of previous years, will enable us to get a sense of how mobility on the island is changing and how this is affected by regulatory measures that have been put in place", added the councillor.

Tallies of individuals and vehicles will be based on the mode of transport used and conducted in the first half of August, when use of local roads is at its peak. Pedestrian and bicycle counters have been installed at six strategic points along the island's network of Rutes Verdes nature trails. Seven manual counts will be done on roads, where 15 automatic sensors have been installed as well. Users of the public bus and cab service will be counted too.

The effort will include counts and surveys in the Port of La Savina, where visitors will be counted and interviews tailored to find out how Formentera's visitors travel and whether they overnight on the island.

Youth Day and Evenings of Art among highlights of August activities programme at Casal de Joves

The Formentera Office of Youth is pleased to present the August activities programme at the Casal de Joves. Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth, said, "It's one of the hottest months of the year, so small wonder Saturday 6 August brings the return of one of summer's most refreshing activities: a water games workshop".

Parellada revealed two red-letter events in particular: "Friday 12 August, youngsters at the Casal will celebrate Youth Day (Dia de la Joventut) with music and food, and discuss the crucial role of youth at every level of society".

Then, on Friday and Saturday 27 and 28 August, participants in Evenings of Art (Tardes d'art) will use their imagination and creativity to make a large drawing on a piece of canvas that will later be cut out and used to decorate the Casal.

On three Wednesdays (3, 10 and 24 August), the crowd at the Casal will screen films on topics of special interest to youth and, on four Thursdays (4, 11, 18 and 25 August), aspiring illustrators are encouraged to join a perennial favourite: the manga drawing workshop.
