Proposal for the Implementation of Superblocks. Neighbourhood of A Magdalena in Ferrol

Superblocks proposal of Ferrol

Since the Plan for Mobility and Public Space Plan of Ferrol (2009), the pilot Superblock in the neighbourhood of A Magdalena has established itself as part of the strategic actions being taken. This study looks at the proposal for the implementation of three Superblocks located in the historic centre of Ferrol. This area, together with the neighbourhoods of Canido and Ferrol Vello, fall under the scope of project URBAN (financed by the EU), which takes into consideration its own planned and completed actions in the creation of strategically relevant proposals.

 

It deals with a compact urban fabric with narrow streets and in some cases hills with grades greater than 6%. In general it counts on its proximity to three reference public spaces at the city level: Reina Sofía park to the east, Plaza España to the west, and the Jardines de Suances to the south, all of which maintain a pedestrian continuity all the way to the nearby university campus.

 

The proposals include a design for new bus and bicycle networks. Reorganization and urban distribution of parking is addressed as well. The central concepts for the most important actions and the revitalization of public space by means of the streets’ activities are specified too.
