The Association of Cyprus Tourist Enterprises (Stek) urged authorities to repair the seafront walkway in Limassol’s Ayios Tychonas, which has been in disuse for two years due to heavy rains and natural erosion.

In a statement published on Monday, Stek said government funding is needed in the area in order to proceed with the works.

“Members of Ayios Tychonas community councils have constantly tried to appeal to the government, through phone calls and letters, for the past two years,” it said.

“They have tried to get in touch with the president, the transport ministry, the interior ministry and the deputy ministry of tourism. No one got back to them and the seafront remains damaged.”

The walkway is five kilometres long and, according to Stek, is the longest in Cyprus.

“After years of neglect, it is now unusable, both by locals and by tourists. All this has had a profound effect on the tourism industry in the area. The situation has reached a breaking point,” the statement said.

Stek called on the government to intervene as soon as possible “in order to prove that tourism is indeed a priority for the country.”
