Projects worth more than €10m to upgrade Geroskipou

Yeroskipou beach

Projects worth more than €10 million are ongoing in Geroskipou, Mayor Michalis Pavlides said on Monday.

The traditional centre of the coastal town will be upgraded, while the old army training centre (KEN) will also be utilised, he said.

“Specifically, the municipality of Geroskipou is preparing proposals, so that by November 30 a relevant study will be sent to Greek researchers, in collaboration with the municipality of Paphos, for the promotion of EU-funded projects for the period 2021-2027.”

Some of the projects concern the archaeological and historical monuments of the town, he added.

There are proposals to create a museum with a space for the processing of silk, an event hall and various green areas.

The old buildings of the army training camp may be used as exhibition spaces.

Near the coast, a roundabout is being constructed to facilitate traffic in the area and the road network is being updated.

The road connecting the beach with the town is expected to be completed in June next year, “so next summer we will have a safer and shorter access to the beach”. More parking spaces are also under construction.

A health centre including a dental clinic, a mental health clinic, a maternity ward and other services was inaugurated last Friday.
