EU presidency makeover for palace roundabout

IN AN effort to ready the main roads of the capital for the EU presidency in just over a week Nicosia Municipality has given the roundabout near the presidential palace a makeover, along with several other ‘green touches’ to the city.

The ancient Cypriot olive tree in the centre of the roundabout is now being surrounded by grass, which will be complemented with bushes and bright flowers.

“We’re making sure that there are lots of plants and lots of colour,” said Pavlos Christodoulou, an official at Nicosia municipality. 

The design created last year for the roundabout was the solitary tree surrounded by rocks instead of grass, which was designed to save water. However the rocks were removed when protesters began hurling them at the palace during demonstrations following the Mari naval base blast in July last year. The protests went on all summer.

Christodoulou said the roundabout would now be watered using an underground system so that water is not lost as it is when sprinklers are used.

According to Nicosia municipality’s communications officer, Makis Nicolaides, grass is being laid in several areas to give the city a ‘cooler feel’ during the hot summer months.

Plants are being placed on some main roads such as Makarios Avenue in the city centre. 

The city’s various municipalities have carried out improvements over the last couple of months for the presidency, including resurfacing of many roads.
