A report on mobility and parking in Palma recommends “limiting“ access by private cars to the city centre, which at present attracts 82'000 vehicles a day. A limit is needed to “prevent undesirable medium or long term consequences for economic and social development.” The report was commissioned by the Palma city council and although it will not be finalised for another two months, some details were revealed yesterday. The report has been drawn up by the Catalan firm SET and covers various aspects of traffic in Palma, such as the use of private cars, public transport and parking. The presentation of the report was attended by representatives of SET and deputy mayor José Manuel Sierra, who promised to take action based on the final conclusions. A survey based on 12'000 interviews shows that 53 per cent of residents who go to the city centre on a daily basis drive their own cars, compared to 24 per cent who use public transport and 23 per cent who go on foot.
