People living in the area of Mitsero will protest the proposed relocation of two Dali asphalt plants to their area in a demonstration on Thursday.

The protest is scheduled to take place from 7.30am to 10am on the road from Ayios Ioannis to Kato Moni, which will be closed by a motorcade.

Last February, residents of Larnaca also held a protest against the relocation of the plants to the area of Koshi, near the Vasiliko energy centre.

The decision to relocate the plants came after multiple complaints from Dali residents concerning air pollution as the plants are built near a residential area and the community’s primary and nursery school.

The deadline for the relocation of the plants was set in February, pending the completion of an environmental impact assessment.
