An €85,500 tender contract for a study to decide the required improvement work at Larnaca fishing shelter was signed on Thursday.
The Larnaca fishing shelter is in the Mackenzie area, on the west side of Larnaca Bay and north of Larnaca airport.
Built-in 1979, it consists of a leeward and a smaller leak breakwater and hosts about 150 fishing and other vessels. To the west of the fishing shelter there is a beach and to the east the pedestrian area of Piale Pasia.
The contract was signed by Antonis Koutsoulis on behalf of the public works department of the transport ministry, and by Athanasios Papathanassiou on behalf of MARNET company.
The main purpose of the project is to determine the improvement measures to be taken in order to serve more effectively the vessels that use the shelter and to provide the necessary safety conditions.
The improvement actions that will be proposed should have the least possible environmental impact and be aligned with sustainable development principles.
The project is co-financed by the EU under its Thalassa programme and must be completed within 18 months from the date of signing.
