Las Palmas News: Huge Pedestrian Zone Planned For Mesa Y López

Mesa y Lopez street in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will soon be completely pedestrian

Mesa y Lopez street in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will soon be completely pedestrian

The plan to make Mesa y López street completely pedestrian is getting more ambitious and now includes other streets in the area.

The latest plan, to be announced next week by the Concejal de Urbanismo, Javier Doreste,  includes Mesa y López, Mas de Gaminde street, Rafael Almeida, and the area around the Mercado Central including parts of Barcelona, Valencia y Menéndez y Pelayo streets.

To offset the loss of parking places caused by pedestrianisation, parking will now be allowed around the old football stadium (250 places).

The only cars allowed on these streets will be delivery vehicles and local residents using their underground parking access.

This plan will make a huge difference to Mesa y López shopping street as it is currently a busy road. Shop owners have complained for years that people prefer the city’s malls and no longer shop outdoors because of the noise and traffic.

For owners in the Mesa y López property zone, the plan is great news as traffic noise has always been significant in the area.

No final date for the project has been announced but I’d expect that to come out next week with the formal announcement.

Traffic will be rerouted along Néstor de la Torre, Luis Antúnez, Ingeniero Salinas and Concepción Arenal.
