The Sant Antoni ring road is one of the venues in Barcelona where the differences between socialists and commoners in terms of the urban and mobility model have been most visible during the last term. While Colau has opted to turn the ring road into a completely pedestrian axis, the Socialists have defended a reform where public transport has a place.
To make his intention clear, Jaume Collboni promises to revoke the "unilateral" project presented by the deputy mayor Janet Sanz in the first 100 days as mayor and to recover the consensus of 2018. "A pacified round but that is not a barrier, that a neighbours, merchants and neighbourhoods”, Collboni summed up in the act that the PSC has held in the Eixample district and where it has put the transformation of Paseo Sant Joan carried out years ago as a model to follow in future pacifications.
That of Sant Antoni is not Collboni's only proposal for residents of the city's central district, which has become the reason for bitter differences between the two government partners. The socialist leader guaranteed that "the Eixample will win green without touching anyone's noses" by implementing the recovery plan for thirty block interiors.
"Enough of making transformations by confronting people, of not moving the city forward based on dialogue and consensus," Collboni assured the residents of the Eixample, to whom he promised to "breathe calm" during the next term if he is elected mayor next Sunday.
With the results of the latest polls in hand, which show Collboni as the winner of the elections, the socialist candidate emerged yesterday as the useful vote. "It will not be enough to be first, we cannot let the train of change pass, I ask to concentrate the vote to achieve a wide victory", Collboni has defended accompanied by Salvador Illa.
