Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos said that the plan for the implementation of sustainable mobility solutions in Nicosia is progressing, according to the Cyprus News Agency (CNA).
Speaking during an event commemorating the launch of the recently revamped Kiriakou Matsi avenue, the minister said that the feasibility study for the plan is at its final stages, with particular emphasis being given on reducing traffic during peak hours.
“The work carried out on Kyriakou Matsi avenue is a good example of sustainable mobility as it ensures the safe usage of both vehicles but also pedestrians and handicapped people,” Karousos said in reference to the avenue itself.
