Bicycle lanes increased shop turnover in Myslym Shyr and Astir

Bicycle lanes increased shop turnover in Myslym Shyr and Astir

The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj says that the shops in the area of ​​st. 'Myslym Shyri' have had an increase in turnover after the installation of bicycle lanes.

Not only has no store been closed, on the contrary, their financial reporting has increased turnover. This is the biggest proof. If you can show me a store that has been closed because of this lie, then of course I'm ready to consider it. I remind you that in the "Rue de Rivoli", which is the largest shopping street in Paris, as soon as the bicycle lanes were installed and the vans did not stop for days, occupying the shop windows, more business was reported and circulation. It turns out that this is the difference between someone who makes up ideas to grab some votes and introduce the next tram and someone who actually looks at the statistics. All the shops there have had more turnover because the wall of vans that used to be parked for hours in front of them is gone, and now people look at the windows. In the last election, in the area of ​​"Myslym Shyr" we had the largest vote record. In the Astir area, we had the highest vote record, after unlocking the Ring project. You have to see on May 14 that in Unit 10 and in Astir we will have a spectacular victory. We won those units by being in opposition. So Unit 10, you remember that at the time of Gert Bogdani it was with the right, and so was Astiri with Kashar at the time of the Democratic Party. In the last election, after these changes, those units have massively voted the western progress and transformations that have happened to the unit. In 2023, if in an EU country, someone said that we are going to remove bicycle lanes, they would have left the campaign at that moment and locked themselves at home in shame. In this sense, to hear in 2023 the promise that we will remove the bicycle lanes, we will uproot the trees... you understand that the candidate still does not know that Tirana is 1250 km2 and not 42 km2. Tirana, for which we are running today, is 25 times bigger than the one with which they calculate the time when the municipality had Sali Berisha and Ilir Meta, together with their apparatchiks, in 2011-2015. This is really insulting people's intelligence, making discussions about candidates who have not yet understood what they are running for."said Veliaj.
