The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the European Commission announced the signature of the contract for road works for the Lefka – Aplici.
According to a UNDP press release, road works under this contract will cover only the section of the road in the occupied northern part of Cyprus. The timeline of the project is five months from contract signature.
The project is fully funded by the European Union in the framework of the Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community, and the estimated cost of the project is approximately €600,000.
The overall length of the road to be improved is 980 meters. The road footprint includes 7.0 meters for the road pavement and 2.0 meters for road shoulders on both sides (1.0 m on each side). Ditches will be constructed where required on both sides of the road for rain water conveyance. Retaining walls, gabions and box culverts will be constructed at locations identified on the project. Guardrails, road signs and road markings will be placed for traffic management and safety.
