The first bike lane in La Laguna connects the town with the Guajara campus



The first bike lane in La Laguna connects the town with the Guajara campus and has a route of 4.3 kilometers that connects the path of Las Peras with the lecture hall, passing through La Milagrosa and Los Menceyes.

The first bike lane in La Laguna, which will have an investment of more than 440,000 euros, will allow connecting different points in an uninterrupted route and which will run next to the Plaza del Cristo, the Plaza del Adelantado, along Calle Santo Domingo, the Boulevard de the Plaza de la Milagrosa, the Leonardo Torriani avenue, the Los Menceyes avenue and the Professor José Luis Moreno Becerra street, until the connection with the César Manrique avenue.

The City Council has reported in a statement that the project of this itinerary has been presented to the areas of the council involved in this action to collect their contributions and complexity of an intervention that will cover more than 4 kilometers.

Likewise, it has specified that the comprehensive planning of the municipal basic cycling network has been completed, which has 23 longitudinal kilometers and that will connect the town with La Cuesta, the University campuses, the airport and Geneto.

The Sustainable Mobility area is also developing a new Active Mobility Ordinance to regulate the coexistence between pedestrians and cyclists, which “is already well advanced.”

Engineer Miguel Ángel Morales explained all the details of the bike lane project, which includes the design, calculation, description and assessment of the works necessary to implement this cycling infrastructure in the urban center of La Laguna.

The proposal adopts as a general criterion the type of bi-directional bike lane independent of motorized traffic, located on one of the edges of the road and with a total width that is between 2 and 3 meters.

It includes strategies to reduce the speed of road traffic in the main traffic conflict points, coexistence actions in the branches and connections in which it shares a platform with the pedestrian routes, and it will run at the back of the bus stops, with some renovations at junctions to guarantee the priority of the bike lane.

This bike lane, which corresponds to itinerary number 2 of the municipal basic network, runs from north to south, articulating the entire eastern flank of the Casco, starting from the Las Peras road and from the confluence with Madre del Agua street.

At the intersection with Concepción Salazar street, turn east to the Rúa road, to go south on Nava and Grimón streets.

At Plaza del Adelantado, turn to look for Calle Santo Domingo and Plaza de San Cristóbal.

Once on Leonardo Torriani avenue, the itinerary runs along Los Menceyes avenue, following the tram route to the roundabout where it meets the La Cuesta highway.

In this sense, Manuel Calvo explained all the details of the basic municipal cycling network, which will have six interconnected itineraries and will involve a 23-kilometer longitudinal cyclable area, as well as a corridor in the Northeast that will link Valle de Guerra, Tejina and Low tide.

This network will allow bicycle circulation in a safe and comfortable way through practically the entire Casco, as well as guaranteeing the connection with some of its most populated neighborhoods.

The planned itineraries, in addition to the one to be executed first, will link the avenues of the University and Ángel Guimerá, the airport with the Plaza de San Cristóbal, the avenue César Manrique with the Aceviño, Lora and Tamayo streets with the highway of Geneto, in addition to a tour of the entire República Argentina avenue.

In addition, they will link with the bike lanes provided by the Cabildo in the new works on roads of insular interest in the municipality.

The network will make possible not only the articulation of the main population centers of the municipality, but will also enable comfortable and safe mobility by bicycle, with the aim that the existence of this cycling infrastructure modifies mobility guidelines and improves sustainability levels. of the entire system.
