New Majority Introduces Agenda for Reykjavík

The new Independence Party-Liberal Party coalition in Reykjavík City Council introduced its agenda for the city on Monday evening. It includes not relocating the domestic airport, improving roads and preserving the old street image on Laugavegur.

The coalition plans to complete preparations as soon as possible for the construction of the new Sundabraut road, which is planned to connect the Grafarvogur and Laugardalur neighborhoods via tunnel underneath Videyjarsund channel, as well as beginning construction of a bi-level intersection at Kringlumýrarbraut and Miklabraut, ruv.is reports.

Other plans include free bus fares for children younger than 18, increasing slots for senior citizens at nursing homes and assisted-living facilities while strengthening home care and nursing. Real property tax will be lowered and 300 new welfare apartments will be allotted before the end of 2010.

The final statement on the agenda reads that Reykjavík Energy (OR) and its natural recourses will continue to be in public ownership.
