SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, September 28 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Cabildo of Tenerife, Rosa Dávila, visited today, Thursday, at the Valle de Güímar Industrial Park the facilities of the Martínez Cano company, specialized in paper recovery and waste management, which has joined the other transport companies that they will withdraw their heavy trucks during rush hours on the North (TF-5) and South (TF-1) highways.
Rosa Dávila has been accompanied by the insular director of Residuos, Alejandro Molowny; the mayor of the town, Gustavo Pérez; and the provincial director of Martínez Cano Canarias, SA, Francisco Alberto Medina Conde.
The company has decided to reorganize its logistics system, so that trucks do not circulate on the two highways in the period of greatest traffic congestion (from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.). In this sense, the president of the Cabildo thanked Martínez Cano for his gesture, which reinforces the measures that have been undertaken by the Island Corporation with the limitation of the circulation of waste trucks that travel through both the TF-5 and the TF-1.
“We want to thank this great company that is so important in Tenerife with a fleet of 50 heavy vehicles, so I want to thank Martínez Cano for being the first private company to join the pact for sustainable mobility on the island of Tenerife,” said Dávila. , who recalled the need to become aware that the solutions to mobility problems involve collective action.
Along the same lines, the insular director of Waste, Alejandro Molowny, stressed the importance of a company as important as Martínez Cano having joined the restructuring of schedules, since “not only are we committed to more sustainable mobility but we are also reducing the carbon footprint and we make the transportation of this type of logistics companies that move a large number of trucks throughout the day more efficient.
For his part, the provincial director of Martínez Cano Canarias, SA, Francisco Alberto Medina Conde, explained that the company has adapted 35 daily routes, which represents 70% of our services, which amount to a total of approximately 8,000 km. , modifying schedules without affecting the service we provide.
“Following the example of the Cabildo with the routes of domestic waste transfer trucks, we have reorganized all those that affected the mobility of the island of Tenerife.” In total, 60 trips per week have been eliminated during the time slot between 5:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Specifically, special attention has been paid to the routes that operate early in the morning both in the southern area, between Las Chafiras and Adeje, and the routes in the northern area, towards Santa Cruz. On the other hand, routes heading north from Santa Cruz have been optimized, mainly avoiding operating on Fridays at noon.
