The Cabinet approved on Tuesday a plan to create public sanitary spaces and recharge stations on Cyprus motorways, according to a written statement by Deputy Government Spokesperson, Niovi Parisinou.
The creation of public sanitary spaces, recharge stations and other facilities on the sides of the motorway network will have multiple advantages, namely providing motorists a place to "recharge" themselves and their vehicles and providing public toilets where necessary, Parisinou said.
She added that the public toilets, recharge stations and other facilities that will be selected, will provide services on a 24-hour basis. Facilities will include sanitary facilities (men, women, and disabled), as well as infrastructure by way of a small café / kiosk and charging points for electric vehicles. Sanitary facilities will be offered free of charge.
The locations of the facilities in the first phase of the project will be at the following points:
1. Alhambra (section Alhambra - Nicosia)
2. Xylotympou (section Alhambra - Ayia Napa)
3. Kofinou (section Alhambra - Limassol)
4. Diocese (section Limassol - Paphos, direction from Paphos)
5. Mandria (section Limassol - Paphos, direction from Limassol).
Any other services to be offered (e.g. cafeteria) will not be provided free of charge. Revenue from these services will be used for the operating and maintenance costs of the facility and/or the initial cost of the building/setup.
