Fourteen new wave breakers will be built between the Phaethon Hotel and the Dimotika Bania (Municipal Baths) in Paphos as part of efforts by Paphos and Geroskipou Municipalites and hoteliers to upgrade the coastal front, the Cyprus News Agency reports.
Geroskipou mayor Michalis Pavlides said that work on the project is expected to begin at the end of 2019 or early in 2020 at a cost of 13 million euro.
