The Mallorca Council meets with the Town Hall to promote the fifth MOT centre
The department of Mobility and Infrastructure of the Consell de Mallorca has taken the first steps to start building the fifth technical vehicle inspection centre (MOT) in the Son Bugadelles (Calvià) industrial estate.
The councillor for Mobility and Infrastructure, Iván Sevillano, met on Monday with the deputy mayor for Urban Planning, Commerce and Activities of Calvià Town Hall, Marc López, and the general director of Municipal Coordination, José Antonio Fernández.
This next centre intends to diversify and bring the MOT service to other centres in Mallorca to decentralise the inspection of vehicles in Palma. Thus, the Consell would have five centres: two in Palma (Son Oms and Son Castelló), one in Inca, one in Manacor and one in Calvià.
The project is in the initial phase, in which the acquisition of the land by the Town Hall has already been designated pending the modification of the municipal planning and a report from the Balearic Environment Commission to provide coverage to this infrastructure.
On his behalf, the councillor Sevillano explained that "from the beginning of the legislature we work to reduce the waiting time." Sevillano added that "in addition to the short-term measures undertaken by the department, we will carry out solutions such as the construction of the fifth centre that we hope will be a reality as soon as possible."
On the other hand, the deputy mayor Marc López said that "the execution of the new centre is a priority for both administrations" and assured that "the commitment to joint and coordinated work with the Consell de Mallorca will continue."
