Oroklini public seafront development extended.

Jan 20, 2023 | Cyprus Economy

This road starts from the point where the community council building is located and reaches the local police station and the Fire Brigade. This is a constant demand of Oroklini, which, however, in recent years has been on the “ice”, despite the rapid residential and tourist development of the area, which now presents greater prospects for development after the movement of oil tanks. According to the president of the community council Neophytos Phakontis, any problems that existed before have been overcome and in the near future the road is expected to be fixed by the Department of Public Works. 

Then, the Department of Urban Planning will proceed to update the plans and the announcement of the tenders will follow. As Mr. Fakontis said, this road is busy, since it is estimated that more than ten thousand vehicles use it daily. According to the plans, there will be widening and alignment of the road, which will remain two-way, while sidewalks and bicycle paths will be built. The goal is for the road to be joined with the major reconstruction project of the third phase of the Larnaca-Dhekelia road, which started last November and is expected to be completed in 30 months.

 The third phase of the pedestrian street.

At the same time, the third phase of the coastal pedestrian street of Oroklini is on track, which starts from the restaurant “Golden Fish” and will reach the gas facilities, which are expected to be demolished next spring. The long-term goal is for the pedestrian street of Oroklini to be joined with another pedestrian street that will be built by the municipality of Larnaca, so that there is a connection to the coastal front of Finikoudes. As we are informed, the third phase of the pedestrian street will have a total length of about one and a half kilometers and will start from the hotel “Lebay”, where the second phase ended. 

The project is urban planning and the architectural plans have been completed. In the next period, the procedures for obtaining consent from the affected landowners will be carried out. If there are no unexpected obstacles, something that everyone avoids, the announcement of the tender for the construction works will follow. 

The two new luxury hotel units recently erected in Oroklini, Radisson Beach Resort and Mercure Beach, combined with the landscaping works done on the beach (lighting, playground, fitness equipment, planting palm trees), have made the area a popular destination for local and foreign visitors.
