The road that connects the city of Paphos with the Craft Area on the borders with the Municipality of Geroskipou, is finally ready and after the last “tricks” will be given to the public for use in the coming days. This situation provokes after years of protests, performances and whining, feelings of relief and anticipation, primarily among the professionals of the Craft who see a suffering in which they were forced to participate every day to disappear.
The project is the responsibility of the Department of Public Works and was a strong request of local communities and especially professionals in the Craft Area, since with its construction access to and from this area becomes immediate and without the need for bypass as it happens until today.
The construction efforts of the road, which from the Paphos-Geroskipou Craft Area will & nbsp; ends at the North Side in front of the McDonalds, started with the initial planning in 2004. After the bidding process the projects would start in 2013, but were canceled like all the other projects then due to the financial collapse and after many efforts finally started 2019.
With a delay of almost eight months and a cost of 6.5 million euros, the project is now ready. & Nbsp; The Municipality of Paphos finances the project with 20%.
