Work on listed buildings in Larnaca gets underway


Work to support listed buildings on Larnaca’s Ayios Lazaros Street is underway in preparation for a wider revamp to make the neighbourhood more accessible to the disabled, the Cyprus News Agency reported on Friday.

It is part of an ongoing project that involves road repairs and facilities for the disabled in central Larnaca.

“Work at the present stage concerns support of listed houses on Ayios Lazaros Street with temporary wooden structures so that they can withstand the vibrations that will result during the work,” the municipality said.

This is the last section of the specific project and is expected to be completed in two phases. The target date for completion is the end of the first half of 2021. The municipality apologised to the public for any inconvenience caused by the work.

Part of the town’s comprehensive sustainable urban development plans, the project involves the revamp of streets and pavements in the urban centre of Larnaca so as to make them accessible to the disabled.

It is eligible for co-financing from the European Regional Development Find as part of the Competitiveness and Sustainable Growth 2014-2020 programme.
