Paphos marina contract awarded

AFTER nearly three decades of bureaucratic delays and legal wrangles, the contract to build the Paphos marina has finally been agreed on by the ‘new’ Marina Management Committee.

According to the Press, the committee had been examining the issue for the past two months before informing of its decision  just yesterday.

The Paphos marina at Potima bay between Kissonerga and Pegeia will be a crucial project for Paphos. When finally built, it will have a capacity of 1,000 berths. The project will take approximately three years to be completed.

In addition to berthing for 1,000 vessels, the project will include more than 42,000 square metres of residential and commercial developments.

The Paphos marina project has been under discussion since initial studies were carried out nearly 30 years ago.
