Law 7/2005, of 21 February, designation of roads since the General Council in its session of February 21, 2005, has approved the following: law 7/2005, of 21 February, designation of roads reason through the Ordinances of the General Council, in particular the Regulations of 4 July 1969, the Regulations and July 13, 1987 and Regulations and of 13 July 1990 , were set in a more or less accurate designation and the class of the different sections of the General and secondary roads in the country.

The important evolution that have experienced the town planning and road traffic from the moment in which it was set what are the ways deserving of the category of main road and high road, in 1969, advise to proceed for postponed to a further adjustment in accordance with the reality of the movement and in the respective importance of the roads located in different places of the country.

The General Council in custody he had already the need to change the nomenclature when it passed, in 1993, the law of delimitation of competences of the common and the law of transfer in the Commons. The new powers and skills set had to lead to situations in which the Government may not act to invest in the improvement of roads that, in spite of having a national character, kept the categories in the same way, secondary and official, are common may not act without the agreement of the Government in the planning of roads that have lost all interurban and character have become urban exclusively even though they maintain the category of General roads.

During the approval of the budget of the year 1993 the General Council agreed-agreed that it was renewed the following year in approving the budget of 1994-Government entrusted the reclassification of all the roads of the Principality. The forecast to pass immediately a general plan of roads that had to include the required de facto left in suspense that agreement.

Even though the Road Plan has not come to see the light, on 14 May 2003, the Government adopted a sectoral Plan of new road infrastructures in the established with sufficient accuracy the expected development of the communication routes of national nature over the next few years. The sectoral Plan has been taken into account at the time of drafting this law.

Basic modifications contained in the regulatory text covering different aspects: will reorder the general structure of the roads, which ceases to be radial; avoid the double or triple designations for the same via and, above all, it is possible to change route of General roads on its way through the town centres, in those cases in which there is an alternative road that can ensure the necessary continuity of those favourably and, provided that there is the common agreement, for the change of ownership of the road which becomes main road. In addition, it creates the Directory General of roads, all anticipating the mechanisms to keep it updated by incorporating the highways set out in the sectoral Plan of new road infrastructures, as they are opening to traffic, and also the modification of the layout of the roads is carried out as a result of the changes of ownership of ways agreed with the common.

The other big news that introduces the Bill is the definition of a basic network of roads. This instrument is born of the realization that the possibility of movement in conditions of high intensity of traffic that the General roads severely injured by the crossing of the urban centres and by the influence of urban traffic on those, and pursues the aim to look for solutions that help to alleviate the situation and to use all the potential of existing roads and which are not built the alternative roads to the outside of the urban agglomerations planned in the sectoral Plan of the Government, and the arterial roads and sewers that the plans for planning and urbanism have to foresee within the crowds.

The basic network of roads is made up not only by the General Road, but also by a number of secondary roads and streets, or sections of roads and streets, which offer the possibility to distribute the traffic on the route of the towns and make it possible for the adoption of alternative solutions in order to maintain the circulation of vehicles in conditions of high intensity or in exceptional situations.

The inclusion of a road or street in the basic network of roads does not modify the legal regime to which it is subject by reason of its ownership, but introduces some conditions by reason of the role of mobility supraparroquial to what is intended. These conditions are basically two: on the one hand that the communal administration will have to ask for report to general administration before granting employment permits or temporary closure of roads that are included, and must notify the performances that she intends to carry it out; on the other hand, the need for a report from the national Table of mobility before embarking on any actions that modify substantially the capacity or functionality for the traffic of the roads that form part of the basic network.

The National Board of mobility is a new organ that creates this law to make possible the coordination of actions of the different administrations involved in the management of the basic network of roads. It is integrated by representatives of the Government and of local government, at the highest level, and attributed important functions of proposal, planning and coordination of the actions of the different administrations in the field of management of the basic network of roads, mobility and traffic management.
