A new pedestrian overpass linked to the seafront has been inaugurated in Limassol, paid for by telecoms company CyTA.
The overpass, designed by architect Margarita Danou, was inaugurated by Limassol Mayor Andreas Christou, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades and CyTA chairman Christos Patsalides, police and other officials.
CyTA wholly funded the project as part of its social corporate responsibility programme, which focuses on road safety issues.
Christou said the project could not have come about without the CyTA funding.
The overpass has been chosen by the Cyprus Architects Association to represent the island with nine other projects in the European competition ‘Mies Van Der Rohe’. Named after German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the biennial award is the most prestigious accolade in European architecture and is awarded to a building completed in the last two years by a European architect.
