Tram study ready in six months

A viability study for a tram network in Nicosia will be ready in six months, Communications Minister Marios Demetriades has said.
Officials have previously said that a tram system is crucial for the island’s capital that expects to see over 800,000 cars moving on its road’s every day by 2020.
“A study is being carried out, which will be ready in six months and it will show whether such a project is viable,” Demetriades told the Cyprus News Agency.
The minister stressed however that the state must be careful before embarking on such a project.
“We must be certain that the project will be viable and it will not burden taxpayers with substantial amounts,” the minister said.
Plans foresee initially introducing a two or three line system – but this is expected to be studied further – with terminals at the main bus station in Solomou Square, Nicosia General Hospital and the Makarios Stadium.
