TECHNICAL works linking the electricity grids of both communities are finished in one site as part of the confidence building measures (CBMs) agreed in May between the two leaders, Nicos Anastasiades and Mustafa Akinci.
In Orounda, the technical work is complete while the second site in Athalassa is not ready yet due to geographical difficulties in the area. Works are still ongoing and they are not expected to take too long.
Electricity charges continue as per normal with the costs for both authorities remaining separate.
In terms of linking mobile phone networks, another CBM agreed between the leaders, the technical committee is discussing issues on pricing.
