Expansion of the regulated parking in Zone 26 of Nou Barris District
From 09/27/2021 signalling works will begin for the implementation of the expansion of the Zone 26 regulated parking zone in the Vilapiscina and Torre Llobeta neighbourhoods of the Nou Barris district.
Zone 26 expansion
This action will regulate parking on the road between the limits of Passeig de Maragall, C. de Petrarca, C. de Cartellà, Pl. de Castelao, Passeig de Fabra i Puig, C. d'Arnau d'Oms, C. de Ramón Albó and C. de Prat d'en Roquer so that residents will have priority when parking and will form part of the current Zone 26.
The spaces to be regulated with this extension are 649 new Green spaces and are identified with green paint. This means that, with the aim of prioritising residents' parking, non-resident vehicles in Zone 26 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 to the vehicle's environmental hashtag.
In addition, 401 new Motorbike parking spaces, 10 new DUM parking spaces and 11 new Blue parking spaces will be created.
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 parking spaces in Zone 26, which will be identified on the vertical sign with the Resident rate that corresponds to the environmental hashtag of their vehicle.
Thus, residents registered in the zone who own a car registered in Barcelona will not need to make any arrangements. During the second half of October they will receive a letter at their home address with information about their resident zone and an information leaflet on the use of parking as a resident.
To obtain resident parking tickets, users are recommended to use the free ONaparcar residents mobile application. 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 the 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:
- 09/27- 10/04: Vertical pre-signalling in the street indicating the dates on which parking will not be allowed in order to carry out the signage works in each street.
- 10/05 - 10/29: Horizontal signalling work (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.
- 10/16 - 10/30: Mailing of information letters to residents included in the extension of Zone 26.
- 11/02/2021: Activation of the new spaces in Zone 26.
