The Ronda Litoral de Barcelona has long queues since early this morning, up to 17 kilometers in the Trinitat direction, due to a slow march carried out by the carriers to claim to be able to drive on this route.
More than a hundred trucks participate in the protest, which has been convened by the Transport Association of the Port of Barcelona (Sintraport) after the City Council, says the entity, has breached the agreements reached so that heavy trucks can circulate through the Ronda.
The mobilization has begun at 6 in the morning and is scheduled to last until 3 in the afternoon, according to the president of Sintraport, Vicente Rodríguez, who has apologized to the users who may be affected by the protest, but has remembered "This has been sought by the City Council for not respecting the agreements agreed."
Although the trucks carry out the slow march in the right lane of the Ronda, the road, usually very busy early in the morning, has been quickly affected and long delays have been formed.
According to the Catalan Traffic Service (SCT), the queues reach 17 kilometers in the Trinitat direction and 8 kilometers in the direction of the Nus del Llobregat.
In addition, as reported by the Guardia Urbana de Barcelona, have had to cut traffic access to the Ronda Litoral in Besòs from Ciutat Vella and up to the Nus de la Trinitat.
Sintraport has called for the participation of all its partners in this march "given the importance that requires acting in front of this type of attitude".
On November 15, the Generalitat announced a principle of agreement with the City of Barcelona and the transport associations of the Port so that trucks loaded with containers could circulate through the Ronda Litoral.
Sintraport says, however, that the Barcelona Urban Police continues to fine 500 truckers traveling on the B-10, which has led them to call this slow march to denounce the breach of the agreement.
