West Limassol to get development facelift

The western part of Limassol is next in line to get a sustainable revamp as the town’s municipality is set to complete and launch new construction projects in the area.

“2019 marks the continuation of the planned projects and the implementation of a series of new projects for Limassol, on the basis of the political decisions and priorities set by the town council,” said Limassol Mayor Nicos Nicolaides,

A total of 11 projects worth €22 million, co-financed by the European Union Regional Development Fund, are to give west Limassol a makeover.

“The Projects aim at laying the groundwork for the sustainable development of the western part of the town, the economic and social well-being of the inhabitants and is expected to contribute to the council’s ‘Limassol 2020’ vision to create a city that is friendly and attractive for social, environmental and business activities,” Nicolaides told Stockwatch.

Works in areas like Ayios Antonios and Ayios Ioannis are already underway, with five projects running and five more in the pipeline.

The municipality’s projects are part of the broader ‘Limassol 2020’ urban interventions program for the revitalization of the area.

The co-funded projects include a green walking route and the redesigning of the Ayios Antonios area, the Syntagma and Filellinon Squares, projects which are already in progress, and the renovation of the municipal buildings in Ayios Ioannis.

The municipality is also planning to start work on an additional flood control scheme in the Apostolos Andreas area which is to cost €28.4 million.

The current year will also see the construction of the new football stadium in Kolossi and the construction of the water waste treatment plant in Polemidia in west Limassol. In the second half of 2019, the construction of the first phase of the new Limassol-Saitta motorway is set to begin.
