Participation 2009

The participant is committed to:

Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
A ZSTA é basicamente constituída por dois eixos viários localizados no denominado Centro Tradicional da Marinha Grande, e por isso mesmo eixos onde diariamente circulam inúmeros veículos motorizados: Rua 18 de Janeiro de 1934 e Rua Infante D. Henrique. Na proximidade de ambas encontra-se um conjunto significativo de equipamentos e serviços públicos (por ex: a Câmara Municipal, a Biblioteca, o Arquivo Municipal, o Museu do Vidro), mas também extensas zonas de espaço público reabilitadas nomeadamente no âmbito do URBCOM e do POLIS.
