On December 8th, the “Urban Master Plan for the Development of Road Infrastructures, Railways and Logistics in the Penedès” approved by the catalan government on July 15th, was took to the EU parliment by means of a written question presented by Oriol Junqueras and Raul Romeva. Now the parliment has 3 to 6 weeks to answer the three questions formulated:
Does the European Commission believe that the planning procedures followed in respect of the abovementioned project have infringed the Aarhus Convention, and hence EU Directives 1003/4/EC and 2003/35/EC?
Does the European Commission believe that building a road parallel to the AP‑7 contradicts the ‘20-20-20 Plan’, which seeks to achieve energy saving and energy efficiency?
Does the European Commission believe that the construction of the Logistics Park would be economically and environmentally efficient, given that it would be based only on road transport?
