The Bloco de Esquerda (BE) organizes next Friday, May 10, in Faro, a public session open to all interested parties that takes up the issue of mobility in the Algarve, debating the perspectives for the future.
The session will take place in Club Farense, in Faro, and counts with the participation of deputies Heitor de Sousa and João Vasconcelos and activist Hugo Pena, of the Movement of Citizenship of the Users of EN125 – Sotavento.
The requalification of EN 125 and the tolls of Via do Infante (A22) will be two of the themes on the table, but "because today there is more and more talk about the articulation between road and rail modes in the Algarve region", the initiative intends to explore "the pressing needs for a railroad appropriate to a region such as the Algarve," explains the BE.
The party intends to take advantage of the opportunity to make known its proposal for the National Railroad Plan, recently presented at the Assembly of the Republic.
"In the Algarve, there are many users who choose the train as their daily commute, but they find a void in the articulation between the different collective transport offers, especially in the lack of convergence of schedules between trains and buses", they point out the bloquistas.
The BE argues that there must be "an entire articulation of routes and schedules to give the best response to people," but "in Faro and the Algarve in general, this does not happen."
