The Larnaca municipality has said that the project for the reconstruction of streets and facilities for the disabled in the centre of the town was in its final phase and expected to be ready by the end of summer.
“The works are proceeding on Ayiou Lazarou Street and in the square between the Medieval Castle,” the municipality said.
It added that by June 18 the first section of Ayiou Lazarou would be opened to traffic with new paving, underground services, modern street lighting and urban equipment.
There was a minor delay due to unforeseen work required to improve drainage of rainwater and the significant time required for demolition, it added.
The reconstructed square will have new spaces, trees and flowerbeds, with new equipment and new lighting for the castle.
The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
