Those who walk or cycle will only keep the Ribeira das Naus for themselves on Sundays. The Lisbon Chamber decided to extend the measure, which was only planned for August, allowing traffic between those days between Cais do Sodré and the intersection of Avenida Infante D. Henrique and Rua dos Arameiros, that the Ministry of Finance separates from the field of onions, is broken. .
The municipality has announced the decision in a brief statement, which does not state that the interruption of car traffic in that zone is permanent or until it will last. There is, however, a difference between the Sundays of August and those who come there: in the first case, traffic was interrupted between 0.00 and 24.00 hours; from now on it will only be between 08.00 and 20.00.
The measure "makes it possible to expand the area of growth, to make room for outdoor activities, to improve the environment and to increase safety." A review that accompanies the Lisbon City Council with a list of all trams (15 and 18) and buses (714, 728, 732, 735, 736, 758, 760, 781, 782 and 794) passing by Ribeira das Naus, as well as the nearest metro stations (Cais do Sodré and Baixa / Chiado).
The decision was late Friday afternoon, hours before the to express to go to the stands with an interview with Fernando Medina in which he advocates a widespread and significant reduction of public transport passes, both for those who use them in Lisbon and as holders of combined passes. The mayor wants to reduce from € 36.70 to € 30 for passes within the city and impose a € 40 limit on passes that cover the remaining 18 municipalities around the capital.
The measure would be financed by the state, with an annual cost of 65 million euros. The proposal is in the hands of António Costa and Mário Centeno. Fernando Medina – who also announced his re-election at the next elections – wants the money to be made available in the next state budget for 2019. The mayor leaves the question: "Is there no better answer to the structural problems of the country good for this transformation? of the use of public transport than to reduce two cents in the fuel tax surcharge (ISP), which will not even be felt in someone's pocket?
