The Consortium of the Greenways of the Region of Murcia is working on the preparation of an ordinance that will regulate the use, protection and operation of greenways in this autonomous community, and which will directly affect the Cartagena-Totana Road in accordance with the own uses and application regulations.
The Councilor for the Environment, Antonia Camacho, has informed that this is an initiative of the Consortium and that the City Council is acting as an intermediary between this entity and those affected.
In addition, he explained that until February 16 you can present allegations to the content of the rule, some of which will be presented in a relevant manner by the totanero Consistory itself;
and has announced that next Tuesday, February 13 (7:00 pm), in the Sociocultural Center "La Cárcel", an assembly will be held to inform those affected.
The purpose of the approval of this ordinance is to regulate the use and operation of the Greenways of the Region in order to establish a clear and precise legal framework that ensures the proper management of the same.
The regulation will be mandatory for users, public entities, future public and private consortiums and any person or group that in any way interferes with the proper functioning and conservation of this public good.
The ordinance will collect the general provisions;
the permitted, authorized and prohibited uses;
the improper use of the Way;
as well as the legal and sanctioning regime (classification of infractions).
The Greenways are the old disused railroad tracks conditioned as infrastructures for non-motorized displacements;
and due to their railway origin, they are endowed with special qualities, such as maximum accessibility, ease and safety.
They are ideal spaces to promote sustainable mobility and the practice of walking and cycling, which have become infrastructures for enjoyment and meeting where to practice healthy habits that improve their well-being and quality of life.
At present, in the Region of Murcia, there are several routes suitable for use as Greenways;
as the cases already conditioned of the Greenway of the Northwest, Field of Cartagena, Mazarrón, Almendricos and the future of Chicharra.
