SOME 20,000 PEOPLE USED GRANADELLA SHUTTLE TRAIN THIS SUMMER
Access restrictions have now been lifted for all vehicles

Tuesday 4th September 2018

JAVEA NEWS | Granadella Train - Summer 2018

Some 20.000 people used the free shuttle train this summer to travel to the popular Cala de la Granadella which has been subject to access restrictions for the second successive year in a bid to reduce the traffic saturation which has blighted the zone in recent years.

The shuttle service was launched on July 10th and some 6,200 people used it during that month, a figure that more than doubled to 13,500 during the month of August. According to provisional statistics provided by the Department of Tourism, the majority of the passengers were families with children and young couples with the most popular period for travelling to the cove being between 12 noon and 2.00pm whilst the return journey back to the special parking zone in La Guardia Park being between 5.00pm and 7.00pm. During these busy periods the shuttle train was complemented with a minibus to reduce waiting times. The public service has received very positive reviews from many of those who have used it.

Access restrictions have now been lifted for the Cala de la Granadella. The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia felt obliged to introduce the scheme in 2017 in a bid to reduce the saturation of the cove and prevent damage to an attractive environment. It was also imposed to reduce traffic congestion which built up greatly when parking had become full, a situation that was becoming a great security risk which could have hindered evacuation or access for emergency vehicles in times of danger.

As reported recently similar access restrictions are set to be imposed for the summer of 2019 to reduce the chaos of Cala Barraca which has seen traffic flow and resident access seriously hindered by irresponsible parking on what is a narrow access road to another of Xàbia's popular bays.


UNAS 20.000 PERSONAS HAN UTILIZADO ESTE VERANO EL TRENET A LA GRANADELLA
La regulación del acceso en vehículo a la cala acaba hoy 31 de agosto

Unas 20.000 personas han utilizado este verano el trenet gratuito contratado por el Ayuntamiento de Xàbia para reducir el tráfico rodado en la cala Granadella. Desde su puesta en marcha –el 10 de julio- hasta final de ese mes se han contabilizado 6.200 usuarios, una cifra que se ha doblado en agosto llegando a los 13.500 pasajeros. Según el balance inicial facilitado por el departamento de Turismo, el perfil mayoritario de los usuarios es el de familias con niños y parejas jóvenes, y los horarios punta de 12 a 14 horas en el trayecto de bajada a la cala y de 17 a 19 horas de subida hasta el parking habilitado en La Guardia Park. Por ello, en esas horas se ha reforzado la línea de transporte con un minibús para reducir el tiempo de espera de los usuarios.

Este servicio público, que ha logrado una gran aceptación entre los bañistas que lo han utilizado, acaba hoy su temporada coincidiendo con el fin del periodo de regulación del acceso de coches particulares a esta zona litoral, un sistema que organiza el Ayuntamiento de Xàbia desde el verano pasado para evitar una saturación de la cala que dañe su medioambiente y merme la calidad turística. Y sobre todo, para reducir el caos circulatorio (que incluso podía poner en riesgo la seguridad y dificultar la evacuación o el acceso de vehículos de emergencia ante una hipotética situación de peligro) que se produce cuando está completo el aparcamiento.
