With the coastal resort of Pernera packed with holidaymakers the Paralimni Municipality has decided to press ahead with roadworks. According to notices handed out by the construction company, from August 21st, another road will become one way due to construction works.
Understandably the decision has received a negative response on social media according to local Cypriot press. One local business owner, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was exhausted trying to fight a stubborn mentality. He stated "they have ruined the winter business with roadworks and now they wish to do the same in the summer!" Adding "one way streets, diversions and new roads are confusing locals never mind tourists."
The notice states:
For the reconstruction purposes of the Pernera Ave, the roadworks to your area will start 21/08/2017.
The road will be one way with the direction from Pernera Avenue to Aphrodite Street.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
