Two time slots will be established, such as Saturday afternoon-evening, and Sunday mornings.
For this, traffic will be cut for pedestrianization, also allowing the terraces on the road to be expanded -similar to what has been done during the patron saint festivities-, to compensate for the limitation imposed by the measures of the de-escalation plan for unconfinement.Extensible measures to other streets and neighborhoodsThe Mayor, Pedro López Milán, also announced that the terrace expansion measures will not be exclusive to Calle Mayor, but rather extend to the entire Municipality.
In addition, depending on the location of each location, the use of neighboring streets and / or squares will be studied individually.The measure will also affect the districts of Portmán and Roche.The shops will also be able to expand their sales spaces, showing their products on the street, and zones will be established for those shops on other streets of the Municipality, who want to expose and sell merchandise on the main artery of La Unión (Calle Mayor).
As for the hoteliers on other streets who wish to do so, they will have at their disposal spaces to set up terraces in Plaza Joaquín Costa, always following the established safety regulations.The reactivation of consumption in La Unión, as well as having a safe walking area, which avoids having to travel to other Municipalities, is the primary objective that we try to achieve with these economic and commercial measures.In addition, Calle Mayor will offer leisure and cultural experiences every day, with musical performances, dance demonstrations, theatrical performances, all with a duration appropriate to exceptional circumstances and that will take place in various locations throughout the city.
