Serrano wants the workers of the western polygon to travel in a bus for one euro a day (15/03/2019)

The Socialist candidate for mayor presents 'Connect West', an initiative with which to solve "one of the main problems that our municipality has: the poor communication between populations, and with which you want to open routes to get punctual to work

The candidate for the Mayor of Murcia, José Antonio Serrano, presented this morning the project 'Connect West', an initiative that, "with will, could be launched tomorrow," and that is to create access routes from different points from the municipality through buses to the West Industrial Estate.

"It can not be that the largest business center in this region and one of the benchmarks inside and outside of Spain has such a bad accessibility, that they are even losing job opportunities because either you get there by car or there is no other possibility and we are not correcting this serious deficiency. "

The idea is to create three routes, one through the northern coast, another through the center through line 27B (as requested by the businessmen themselves), and another through the southern coast, which will allow hundreds of workers to leave private transport, what would result in a better environment, with less smoke, noise and pollution, in short, and would also favor savings for the workers themselves.

In this sense, Serrano says that the idea is to launch a bonus that would allow the daily return to the Polygon for only one euro.

Serrano affirms that it is not only about giving "an effective response to the levels of contamination that we are experiencing in recent times in our municipality, but about picking up one of the demands of businessmen and giving access facilities to so many workers (around of 13,000) that go daily to the Polygon ".

With these three lines, populations such as El Esparragal, Monteagudo, Cabezo de Torres, Churra, El Puntal, Espinardo, Guadalupe, La Ă‘ora and Javalí Viejo, Beniaján, TorreagĂĽera, Los Garres, Algezares, Santo Ángel, La Alberca, Aljucer, would be covered. among others, that would be interconnected.

The objective is to have access to the Industrial Estate West at 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. in the morning, and at 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in the afternoon, coinciding with the entries and exits of the work.

The initial estimate is that they can benefit about 500 workers who will pay € 1 per day, and, "in addition to our contribution to improving the environment, we would increase the employability of people who come from distant locations to the Polygon and that for transport reasons they can not accept job offers, thus helping employers to attract workers to their companies. "

In this sense Serrano, recalls that during a recent meeting the entrepreneurs informed him of his availability to hire people with disabilities but that the main difficulty they showed was not having transportation to reach the Polygon, therefore, "no administration should allow a worker with difficulties, whatever it may be, loses an opportunity to work for lack of a bus ", and explains that, initially the" Connect West "project could prevent 400 less vehicles in our municipality per day.

"And then there is the so-called effect, when other workers know the safety and quality offered by public transport, they will start using it for everything, this is one of the main challenges that I face as mayor."

For the socialist candidate, who points out that it is proven that most vehicles move to a single worker, "this is a feasible project that has many benefits, not only reduce pollution, but also hassles such as crowds of traffic in the hours point and that slow down the arrival at home and also harm the access to the populations that surround the industrial estate ".

In short, "we must redouble efforts to ensure that our municipality feels the basis of sustainable mobility that allows us to dream of a better future and with more friendly and healthy cities".

Finally, Serrano states that, "as I have said on more than one occasion, improving the quality of life in cities and offering greater well-being to our neighbors does not consist of promising macro investments or planning monumental projects, but, as in this In this case, it is necessary to redesign transport routes and reinforce certain destinations.
