Current issues: Promenade, presumably there must be some time when many people circulate on the sidewalk, in addition, the bike lane is at the same level as the sidewalk. The bike lane does not connect with any other, that is, it does not seem to form a mobility network, it only accompanies the promenade. We don’t have traffic data, but it looks narrow for a two-way bike lane.
There are no pedestrian crossing points to the sea, danger and conflict.
Also, to the west, the sidewalk seems to narrow and the bike lane becomes one-way. However, the space for cars remains the same.
The street is very wide, two-way and double line parking, cuts and completely isolates the seafront from the town center.
Improvements: Being a seafront, it would be better to pacify or better, to remove the transit of motor vehicles parallel to the coast, to promote the use of pedestrians (wide sidewalk), commercial uses and a good two-way central bike lane.
Complaints; Obviously reducing cars or eliminating them would be rejected by traders, who would claim that their customers will not be able to reach their businesses, but do not think that having more pedestrian space would benefit them (people on bikes or on foot have more chances to consume)
