Mapa del Masnou
A few weeks ago they installed a map of El Masnou by the entrance of the Renfe station. One side has streets and the other has the public transit routes superimposed: trains, and local, regional, and night buses.
In the past few months the town has:
- replaced the steps in the tunnel that crosses the street from some sort of composite ceramic to granite,
- installed a grade-level crossing with traffic signals and bright lighting for night time,
- erected a lighted map of the town and transit routes.
On a more regional basis, they will be adding traffic circles on Nacional Dos (N-II), which runs in front of my piso, to slow down the traffic in several towns. One of them will be just down the street.
This portion of N-II is one of the most dangerous roads in all of Spain. Drivers regular exceed the posted limit of 50 kph. And there have been three accidents within 100 m of my home in the past two years.
Also, at the beginning of 2007, the nearby section of the Autopista del Maresme C-32 (motorway) will be free of charge. That should cut down on a lot of the traffic that uses the coastal road in order to avoid road use fees.
