The platform A11 Pasos de Peñafiel (Valladolid) has called a new concentration for this Monday on the occasion of the last two fatalities recorded on the N-122 road on August 30. In the accident, a father and his minor son, both neighbors of Cuéllar, lost their lives when the vehicle in which they were traveling collided with a truck. The mobilization will be held at 8:00 p.m. at the zebra crossing of the esplanade of Bar Peñafiel, where the concentrations will appeal to the danger of the aforementioned road that has been projected to become a highway for 25 years.
According to data published by the DGT, between 2016 and 2020 there have been 231 traffic accidents on the N-122 in which thirty people have died and 396 people have been injured. In 2021 and 2022, at least another eight deaths and 36 injuries have been recorded.
One of the main black spots of the N-122 is the area of Quintanilla de Arriba and Peñafiel, and especially the crossing of the latter town, where accidents and incidents in this section are weekly. 12% of the accidents on the N-122 are fatal, the group points out through a statement collected by Europa Press.
“All these victims should be, at least, a charge of conscience for our political leaders who are allowing this unsustainable situation for the many users of this national road, full of heavy vehicles, special vehicles and now full of tractors,” they denounce from the platform A11 Steps.
With these mobilizations they intend to convey to the Government of the nation the outrage at the “historical abandonment suffered by this community” and demand that in the next General Budgets they allocate the necessary amount to speed up the construction of this infrastructure.
