Four-Lane Highway Planned for Nicosia

Four-Lane Highway Planned for Nicosia Work on the construe- tion of a four-lane highway linking Nicosia with the Aec- ropolis suburb will start next September, the Cy- prus Weekly reliably in- formed. Tt will mean widening the present Niki Street and Acropolis Avenue, which get very congested at pres- ent with traffic moving from Nicosia to the south- ern suburbs and to villages south of the capital. a The work had been planned some time age but remained stalled while talks went on between the imunicipality and the gov- emment on who should bear the cost. Finally it was agreed that the cost should be shared—two thirds to be borne by the government and the rest by the munici- pal council.
