Work on Larnaca hospital’s new wing moving at a snail’s pace

(CNA)

Work on the construction of the new wing at Larnaca General Hospital is moving at a snail’s pace, Communications and Works Minister Marios Demetriades said on Wednesday.
In the second visit to the site in the past three weeks, Demetriades said the work was not going as planned and there was a significant delay, which was not justified, and he would be seeking a meeting with the contractor with whom the government has some disagreements.
“We live in difficult economic times and works should be progressing quickly,” he said. “This is a very important project for Larnaca and we must find solutions as quickly as possible to the delays.”
According to the Cyprus News Agency, hospital staff complained to the minister about the delays. He was reportedly told that nothing was being done until shortly before the minister announced he would be visiting the site.
During his last visit on November 20, Demetriades made similar comments about the pace of the work. The project would not be completed for another two years due to the delays, he said.
