The order of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda has been published today in the Official State Gazette (BOE) appointing Jaume Colom Adrover as the new president of the Port Author
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is to allocate €200,000 a year to improve the bike lane that runs through the Port of Palma. The bike lane is used by thousands of people each year to move around or do exercise.
Thanks to this contract, for which the submission of bids ended the last week, the bike lane as well as other safety, urban planning, containment and drainage elements will be maintained and repaired, should this be necessary. This also ensures that any incidents affecting safety are dealt with as quickly as possible, as well as undertaking preventive maintenance to guarantee service levels.
In 1984, the APB was a pioneer in the construction of a bike lane in Palma which, at that time, was shared by cyclists and runners. It is 5,619 m long and runs between the Club de Mar and Portitxol.
