New project for the Rambla de la Girada in Vilafranca del Penedès with the aim of creating a healthier city.

New project for the Rambla de la Girada in Vilafranca del Penedès with the aim of creating a healthier city.

After winning the public tender for the redevelopment of the Rambla de la Girada in Vilafranca del Penedès, batlleiroig has delivered the basic project for the northern section of the Rambla with a sustainable rehabilitation that prioritizes slow mobility, promotes social cohesion and doubles the green area.

As explained by the city’s Urban Planning councilor, Francisco Romero, the government wants to propose a superblock in the first section of Rambla de la Girada, with a façade-to-façade renovation, giving priority to the green area and restricting the use of vehicles in space, to make an area more pedestrian friendly and also promote biodiversity.

The Rambla will become a green corridor that will connect with the Park on the covering of the railway and other residential areas. In favor of the new walkable and accessible city, the promenade will be cleared of the invasion of the car and free movement will be offered to the pedestrian throughout the whole street.

The final project will be approved within the first quarter of next year and the construction works will begin in July, with a duration of seven months. Therefore, the final image of this part of the promenade would be complete at the beginning of the year 2023.
