Nicosia municipality on Thursday announced the closure of the old GSP stadium as revamp works are set to start next Wednesday.
The stadium, which provided free parking for hundreds of vehicles, will remain closed for two years during the works, starting from November 10, the announcement said.
The municipality apologised for any inconvenience, saying that the project “is extremely important for our city” and included a map marking the available parking spaces in the area.
According to the municipality, the approximately €20 million revamp will include an urban square, green spaces, recreation areas and underground parking for 570 vehicles.
Tenders for the project were submitted back in May and awarded to Cyfield Construction-Development Consortium.
The revamp will be co-financed from the EU’s cohesion fund, the state budget and Nicosia municipality under the 2014–2020 programming period.
