Compromís per Dénia has returned to demonstrate on the "Plan Ábalos" to implement tolls on highways and highways, and has done so with a motion that will be presented in several municipalities and that has also been approached with an NLP in the Corts Valencianes; in which the government is urged to immediately withdraw the plan to implement tolls throughout the state network from 2024.
And it is that, as Fran Ferri, parliamentary spokesman, has already recalled, "implanting tolls on the roads goes against the investiture pact that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has with Compromís." Thus, Rafa Carrió, a local spokesperson, points out: "we want to insist and pressure from all the institutions to prevent this measure, although Ábalos now says that it is only a debate, we are very clear about it, we do not want to pay, and if it must be paid that it be applied in a gradual and first in those areas that have not been paying unfair tolls. "
In this motion, Compromís also urges the government to present a crash plan with sufficient funding for the improvement of the entire state commuter network, and to draft the project for the train between Dénia and Gandia to accelerate its execution. "In the Navy and in La Safor the train is neither there nor expected," said Carrió, "so we have to continue to unanimously claim and denounce this comparative grievance with the rest of the State, which in the case of the Navy is multiplied".
"We cannot want to be European to pay tolls, but not to have a public transport comparable to that of our neighboring countries," explains the motion referring to the fact that the government justifies this measure due to the increasing costs of conservation, due to the kilometers of tolls of the average of EU countries, and to encourage sustainable behavior.
The initiative also urges the government to accelerate investment and execution work on all sections of the Mediterranean Corridor to meet all the commitments acquired. "Spain has a long way to go in terms of public transport and sustainable mobility before starting to record the use of private cars; the ecological transition will be socially just or it will not be possible," they insist from the coalition.
