The city council of Pamplona has presented a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) which it says will change the concept of city, introduce sustainable transport and prioritise pedestrians.

The mayor of Pamplona, Joseba Asiron, presented the plan at a press conference last month together with a number of city councillors, including the councillor responsible for urban ecology and mobility, Armando Cuenca.

The SUMP includes 32 proposals that will be implemented over the coming years. In 2017, among others, this includes a dozen studies to analyse and assess the implementation of different mobility measures, many of them linked to bicycle infrastructure and new lines of transport.

'Any intervention has to put the pedestrian in the centre and that the plan will help create a safer, friendlier city, with a fairer distribution of public space,' said Cuenca.

Activities for this year include implementing six actions, studying 10 other proposals, developing two projects and three initiatives in the field of legislation, as well as a communication campaign focused on mobility.

The city's current traffic board will be transformed into a mobility board, and a technical working group has been set up to promote and analyse proposals.
