The improvement works on Kappari Avenue started in September 2021, with a duration of execution of 24 months (partial execution of a project) and a cost of approximately EUR7,7 million, including VAT. Specifically, the project concerns the northern part of Kappari Avenue and the new road network consists of the main road network with a length of 2.07 km and the secondary road network with a length of about 1 km.
The main road network includes two lanes with parking on both sides (parallel parking), paved sidewalks, green lanes on both sides, a 2.60 m wide bike path on the right side of the road, pedestrian crossings and bus stops. A new roundabout will be constructed at the last 250 m of Kappari Avenue. The secondary road network consists of two traffic lanes with sidewalks. A bicycle path is also being constructed on Giorki Papadopoulou Street on the north side of the road.
During his visit to the site where the works are carried out, Karousos expressed his satisfaction for the progress of the projects, noting that Kappari Avenue is a basic urban road infrastructure for the Municipality of Paralimni and its improvement is expected to upgrade operationally, quality and aesthetically the area, better serving both the residents of the free Province of Famagusta and the visitors.
