All the projects of the Municipality are designed with absolute respect for the rights of all citizens with the main concern of the smooth movement of all, pedestrians and the disabled, the Municipality of Nicosia responds to the admittedly harsh announcement of the Pancyprian Organization of the Blind, earlier today, for the exclusion of the blind in the center of Nicosia.
The Municipality of Nicosia, “for the umpteenth time”, as it emphasizes, notes the following:
- The granite cubes in the shopping triangle have been placed by design in specific places and not on or near blind guides for to prevent the parking of vehicles on sidewalks and not to impede the free movement of all, pedestrians and the disabled.
- Unfortunately, instead of criticizing the citizens who systematically move the granite cubes and even place them on the blind drivers to facilitate the illegal parking of their vehicles, the Municipality is criticized, which for weeks has repeatedly acknowledged the problem and repeatedly called on the citizens to comply. .
- A decision has been made to stabilize the granite cubes at the points provided by their original design and color to be more distinct even to those who do not have vision problems. The process needs some time to be completed and that is why we will ask for the patience of the citizens. Until then, the cubes have been moved to their original positions and we urge citizens not to move them again.
All the projects of the Municipality are designed with absolute respect for the rights of all citizens with the main concern of the smooth movement of all, pedestrians and the disabled, concludes.
