Tombs of the Kings works to be completed in May 2016

Improvement works along the Tombs of the Kings Avenue in Paphos will be completed by May 2016 at the latest, said House communications and works committee chairman Antonis Antoniou, adding that the construction company would be instructed to provide a revised work schedule.
The project was broken into eight parts, four of which are under construction. Antoniou, himself an MP from Paphos, said that the company would be asked to be more considerate to local businessmen, whose trade is being affected by the ongoing road works.
The project was essentially set to be completed by April 2015. The company has asked for an 11 month extension. The 3.2 km long project is expected to cost around €14 million.
Antoniou argued that the process for awarding tenders on public project should be modernised and simplified, “so as to avoid unnecessary delays, over-budgeting and confusion which all have a huge financial impact.”
