A project to extend the Protaras coastal promenade will start in November, announced Theodoros Pyrillis, Mayor of the Cypriot Municipality of Paralimni. The project which is expected to cost approximately 4.5 million euros aims to create a single pedestrian path along the sea. This will enable visitors to walk and run along the sea. The length to be added is 3.5 kilometres long.
“The extension will be done on both sides of the existing path, namely from Fig tree bay to the Hadjixeni valley and from Pernera to the chapel of Ayios Nicolaos” Pyrillis informed. He also added that the call for tenders expires on 27 September this year and work is expected to start in the beginning of November. The project is planned to be finished in the timeframe of 5 months, with construction costs estimated at 4.5 million euros.
“From the promenade, pedestrians will have access to restaurants, beaches, yahts and playgrounds, while there will be more small zones with kiosks and benches next to the sea. During the summer, the Protaras area is literally flooded with people, both foreigners and locals, and various cultural and recreational events take place in different places” added the Mayor Pyrillis.
