The transport ministry on Tuesday opened the tender process for the construction of the first phase of the Nicosia orbital motorway at an estimated cost of €62m.

The entire project, expected to be completed in five phases, will cost around €350m.

The first phase is expected to start in the first half of 2020 and will be completed inside three years.

The project will be co-funded with €43.8m from the EU through the Connecting Europe Facility.

Phase one of the project includes a 7.5-kilometre motorway connecting the Nicosia to Limassol motorway in the Dhali area with Tseri Avenue. It also includes 10 kilometres of extra roads, three flyovers, and a main roundabout.

The ministry hopes the project will alleviate the traffic jams that are a daily phenomenon at the entrance of Nicosia.
