Yellow lines in the calle Almudaina . | R.L.


The Arca heritage preservation association has proposed changes to road signs and yellow lines in Palma. The association believes that there should be alternatives. "The image of the city is of cultural and economic activity of the highest magnitude." Mistreatment of this affects "aesthetic sensibility".

The association is concerned about the yellow painting of roads in the old centre and wants signs to be kept to a minimum and be well maintained. It made a request four years ago to reduce the number of signs and to consider the appropriateness of the siting of certain signs, such as ones between the modernist buildings in the Plaça Mercat.

With the paint, it has asked for a study for the calle Almudaina. The aim of this is to look at a way of removing the paint without harming the stone. "The beauty of the street does not deserve" the paint.

Arca has spoken to the transport councillor Joan Ferrer about the "negative impact" of painting and signs and will now formally send its proposals in writing to his department and to the mayor's office.
