Expansion of regulated parking in the District of Sant Martí
As of March 30 signalling works will begin due to the implementation of the expansion of the regulated parking zone in the Sant Martí District. These actions are aimed at extending the AREA residents' zone known as Zone 27.
Expansion of Zone 27
This action will regulate parking on the road between the limits between Rambla de Prim, c. de Jaume Brossa, Passeig de la Verneda, c. de Extremadura and Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, so that residents will have priority when parking and will form part of the current Zone 27.
The spaces to be regulated with this extension are 4,338 new Green spaces and are identified with green paint. This means that, with the aim of prioritising residents' parking, non-resident vehicles in Zone 27 will only be able to park for a maximum of two hours within the regulation hours indicated by the corresponding vertical sign and with the Green area rate that corresponds according to the vehicle's environmental label.
In addition, it is planned to create 1,256 new Motorbike parking spaces and 145 new DUM parking spaces.
Information for residents
All residents of this extension who own a vehicle registered to their home address will be able to park in the green spaces in Zone 27, which will be identified on the vertical sign with the Resident rate that corresponds according to the environmental label of their vehicle.
Thus, residents registered in the zone who own a car registered in Barcelona will not need to make any formalities. During the second half of May, they will receive a letter at their home address informing them of their resident zone and an information leaflet on how to use the parking space as a resident.
To obtain resident parking tickets, users are recommended to use the free ONaparcar residents app. With this application it is possible to obtain tickets from one day until the end of the year at the latest. As it is a digital ticket, it can be checked securely and in real time by the parking attendant's device and therefore it is not necessary to use a parking meter or place a paper ticket in the vehicle. However, if necessary, a receipt can be printed out for the payment made.
The planned implementation schedule is as follows:
- 03/30 - 04/11: Vertical pre-signalling in the street indicating the dates on which parking will not be allowed in order to carry out the marking works in each street.
- 04/12 - 05/31: Horizontal signalling works (painting of the new parking spaces in the street), vertical signalling (installation of the vertical regulation signs) and installation of parking meters, according to the dates established for each street.
- 05/10 - 05/21: Mailing of information letters to residents included in the expansion of Zone 27.
- 05/31/2021: Activation of the new spaces in Zone 27.
