Cyprus pledges to fix deadly road (PICTURES) – in-cyprus.com

The Cyprus government has pledged €60 million to improve a stetch of road leading into Troodos which has claimed the lives of eight people since 2011.

The most recent road fatality along the 11km Astromeritis to Evrychou road occured on Friday and saw 21-year-old Astromeritis resident Pantelis Demou killed when his car overturned.

His death prompted a renewed call for action and the creation of a proper motorway (as opposed to the single carriageway) in the area between Astromeritis and Evrychou and particularly including the perilous 11km stretch between Astromeritis and Atsas.

Communications Minister Marios Demetriades on Tuesday promised residents of the area that he would by the end of this year “instruct the Finance Mnsitry to include the project in the State Budget” for 2019.
