PSD to try to reverse Lisbon traffic changes
The PSD party said it would try means, including legal ones, to reverse the approved proposal which imposes traffic changes in the city of Lisbon, stressing that there had been no public consultation or notice prior techniques.
In a press release, the Lisbon PSD indicates that “the left majority in the Lisbon City Council has imposed its will to prohibit car traffic on Avenida da Liberdade on Sundays and public holidays and to reduce traffic speed by 10 kilometers [per hour] in the city”, without there having been “public consultation of the populations, without consultation of the tradesmen, the cultural agents or the parish councils”.
“PSD Lisboa will make every effort to try to find a solution that meets the wishes and needs of the population, including from a legal point of view, given the lack of prior public consultation and the lack of opinion and studies of the services, which can, possibly, reconsider the decision”, one reads in the note published on the Facebook page of the council of the party.
For the PSD, the elected officials who approved the Livre proposal decided to go ahead with “their will, which is in no way consistent with the democratic way in which decisions must be taken, with the people and for the people”.
