Nicosia’s Boumboulinas Street closed for five months

Nicosia municipal authorities said Tuesday that Boumboulinas Street in the centre of Nicosia will be closed for five months from January 10 due to construction work.

The street is part of a broader project to revamp the capital’s erstwhile commercial centre of Makarios Avenue, Stasicratous, and Evagorou Streets.

Pedestrian access to businesses will continue without interruption.

The project aims at improving mobility in the area and promote sustainable transport and cut emissions.

Makarios Avenue, a main thoroughfare, is also included in the project but it will be opening for one-way traffic on Wednesday because, as the municipality said, of logistical delays that prevented the municipality from going ahead with its original plan of only allowing authorised vehicles to pass through the avenue.
