Decision to construct traffic island on Limassol’s Pattichi street is final

Despite objections by shop owners, the government’s decision to construct a traffic island on Limassol’s busy Nicos and Despina Pattichi street is final, Phileleftheros said on Thursday.

Shop owners argue that this will ruin business for them as parking spaces on the road are limited, but the Communication Ministry’s message is that the state will not make discounts on road safety.

Phileleftheros also reported that the Public Works Department has already signed a contract with a developer for the construction of the island. And that works were expected to start last month.

Apart from the island, the government decision includes the establishment of parking spaces to assist clients of shop keepers there, and a pedestrian’s crossing on the junction of Ergatoudes and Pattichi streets.

The Ministry has made clear that the plans aim to reduce the number of fatal and serious traffic accidents on the street.
