The Junta de Castilla y León will launch the Ávila Rural health zone route. In the first quarter of 2009, the population that will benefit from the new routes amounts to 17,000 inhabitants, covering the entire Sierra de Ávila and Valle Amblés, in addition to the annexes of Ávila capital and the towns that go to the health center Ávila Rural. It is an easy-to-use transport, based on the prior telephone request by citizens.
The province of Ávila has been a pioneer in the implementation of this service with the implementation of the El Barco de Ávila I and II areas, which were later joined by Burgohondo, Cebreros, Piedrahíta and Sotillo de la Adrada. The number of benefited localities amounts to 165 localities. In total, the number of on-demand transport routes amounts to 34. According to their calculations, around 36,000 people have benefited from this service. Countries like Chile and Germany have been interested in this format.
PROTECTIVE BARRIERS : On the other hand, the installation of protective barriers against motorcycle accidents will also be completed on the road that connects Navalperal with the N-403, passing through Cebreros and Hoyo de Pinares. In addition, they will be installed on the Gredos, El Escorial and Valle del Tiétar roads, on the CL-501. To date, these protection systems have been installed in the municipalities of Navalperal de Pinares, San Bartolomé de Pinares, Hoyo de Pinares, Cebreros and El Tiemblo, with an investment of 350,000 euros.
