Larnaka

Quote:
Larnaca, or Larnaka, is a city on the southeast coast of Cyprus. The major international airport of Cyprus, Larnaca International Airport is located in this city. In ancient times, Larnaka was known as Kition, or (in Latin) Citium. The biblical name Kittim, though derived from Citium, was in fact used quite generally for Cyprus as a whole, and occasionally by the Hebrews for the Greeks and Romans.

It has a population of 72.000 (end of 2001) and is the island's second commercial port and an important tourist resort. To the north of the town lies the island's oil refinery, while to the south of Larnaca the International Airport is situated.

Ye i did, and that reminds me of a project going on in Thessaloníki, they were placing solar panels instead of common roofs at bus stations, its not the same but still its a clever use of solar panels.

Their is a massive usage of solar power in cyprus. almost all phone booths work with solar panels and all residences (even apartment blocks) have solar water heaters. it saves a lot of money for families especially now that oil prices flunctuate to the worse.

Acutally, there is an Northeast Meddierantean style. Cities in Cyprus like Larnaka or in Turkey Antalya, Mersin, or Israeli cities are very similar... Same kind of buildings, streets, climate and athmosphere.

Sunlight by night

Some 100 bus stops around Thessaloniki city now illuminated by stored solar power



Solar lighting units installed at 100 suburban bus stops around Prefecture of Thessaloniki have given light to areas that were literally in the dark. An initiative of the Thessaloniki Urban Transport Organisation (O.A.S.Th.), the project has illuminated isolated locations as far as 25 kilometres outside of the northern port city.

The pilot programme was essentially conceived as an easily implemented and cost-efficient way of lighting outer-suburban bus stops, explained vice-president Christos Stefanidis to GreeceNow. Up until this year, residents commuting during evening hours in towns such as Sindos (in the city’s industrial area to the east) and Hortiatis (located at the foot of the homonymous mountain to the west) were forced to wait for buses in utter darkness.

“Now,” says Stefanidis, “once they arrive at the bus stop they press a button, installed at child’s height, which lights the area for about five minutes. It then switches off. If their bus hasn’t arrived yet, they can just press the button again, and so on.”

Simple and economic
The programme uses technology that exploits the fact that Thessaloniki enjoys 70% of sunlight everyday throughout the year. Based on a European model, the unit is 100% solar powered, which means, free energy from a renewable source. The self-contained system is able to store enough light to operate at night and simply recharge itself during daylight hours.

Installation is easy, with no external wiring or trenching required, and the light switch can be set to turn on for a specified amount of time. For residential areas like the ones in question, where bus stops were never connected to a traditional hardwire lighting system, the technology provides an ideal solution.

Apart from the positive economics, commuter safety and security was always a thorny issue in these low-lit areas. Understandably, Community representatives expressed many thanks to the transport organisation’s initiative for providing a much-needed service.

The pilot project was initiated over a year ago and, now that is has been successfully completed, plans to expand to areas as far as Lagadas are underway, but EU funding opportunities will determine how soon this will materialise.

While in this case, cost-efficiency and ease of installation and maintenance were the project’s practical priorities, the very essence of renewable energy technology is about being environmentally friendly. Greece is committed to the global effort of formulating policies to implement the Kyoto Protocol , that is, to generate 20% of the nation’s electricity from renewable sources by 2010.

Σημαντική χαρακτήρισε τη χθεσινή μέρα ο Ανδρέας Μωυσέως

Το νέο πρόσωπο της Λάρνακας





Προκηρύχθηκαν οι προσφορές για τις πλατείες της Λάρνακας - Η ανάπλαση θα συνδέσει το παραλιακό μέτωπο με τον ιστορικό πυρήνα της Λάρνακας

Κάλλιο αργά παρά ποτέ. Η ρήση αυτή ταιριάζει γάντι στο έργο ανάπλασης των τριών πλατειών του εμπορικού κέντρου της Λάρνακας (Ερμού, Αγίου Λαζάρου και Μεσαιωνικού Κάστρου), αφού χθες προκηρύχθηκαν, επιτέλους, οι προσφορές για το σημαντικό αυτό έργο. Παρά τη μεγάλη καθυστέρηση που παρατηρήθηκε στην προώθηση του έργου (θεωρήθηκε αντισταθμιστικό έργο για τη δημιουργία της αφαλάτωσης στο αεροδρόμιο), εντούτοις η χθεσινή μέρα μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί σημαντική για τη Λάρνακα, αφού ... το νερό μπήκε πλέον στο αυλάκι. Σύμφωνα με το δήμαρχο Ανδρέα Μωυσέως, υπολογίζεται ότι μέχρι το ερχόμενο φθινόπωρο, το αργότερο μέχρι το τέλος του τρέχοντος χρόνου, θα αρχίσουν οι κατασκευαστικές εργασίες και η προσπάθεια θα είναι το έργο να αποπερατωθεί εγκαίρως, ώστε να προκληθεί η μικρότερη δυνατή ταλαιπωρία για το κοινό. Σε δηλώσεις του στην εφημερίδα μας, ο κ. Μωυσέως εξέφρασε την ικανοποίησή του για την προκήρυξη των προσφορών, τονίζοντας ότι η καθυστέρηση που παρατηρήθηκε στην προώθηση του έργου δεν ήταν ευθύνη του Δήμου Λάρνακας. "Ήταν καθαρά θέμα πολιτικής της Κυβέρνησης για τον περιορισμό του δημοσίου χρέους, έτσι ώστε να μπορέσει η Κύπρος να ενταχθεί στη ζώνη του ευρώ. Πλέον ο δρόμος για ανάπλαση των τριών πλατειών έχει ανοίξει, οι προσφορές έχουν προκηρυχθεί και το φθινόπωρο ελπίζουμε ότι θα ξεκινήσουν οι εργασίες. Ο ποταμός δεν γυρίζει πίσω", ανέφερε χαρακτηριστικά ο δήμαρχος. Αξίζει να σημειωθεί, ότι το κόστος του έργου υπολογίζεται στα 4 εκατομμύρια λίρες, ενώ αρχικά, προτού παρατηρηθεί η καθυστέρηση, η δαπάνη ήταν στα 3 εκατομμύρια λίρες. Οι τρεις πλατείες αποτελούν έργα προτεραιότητας και έχουν προκηρυχθεί ως πολεοδομικά με απόφαση του Υπουργικού Συμβουλίου, με κυβερνητική συνεισφορά 2/3 και 1/3 του Δήμου Λάρνακας. Το ποσό που θα απαιτηθεί για την εκτέλεση του έργου έχει εξασφαλιστεί μέσω του ενοποιημένου δανείου των δήμων.


Αλλάζει όψη το κέντρο
Με την ολοκλήρωση των έργων στις τρεις πλατείες, το εμπορικό κέντρο της Λάρνακας θα αλλάξει όψη προς το καλύτερο και θα εξωραϊστεί. Οι καταστηματάρχες ελπίζουν ότι τα έργα αυτά θα προσελκύσουν περισσότερο κόσμο, ντόπιους και ξένους επισκέπτες και θα αναβαθμίσει τις οικονομικές δραστηριότητες του εμπορικού κέντρου, θέτοντας ταυτόχρονα φραγμό στη φθίνουσα πορεία των τελευταίων χρόνων. Η ανάπλαση των πλατειών θα συνδέσει το παραλιακό μέτωπο (περιοχή Μεσαιωνικού Κάστρου) με τον ιστορικό πυρήνα της Λάρνακας, θα προβάλει και θα αναδείξει τον ιστορικό ιστό της πόλης μέσω δικτύου αξιόλογων κτισμάτων που γειτνιάζουν με άλλα ιστορικά μνημεία και θα αναδείξει την πολιτική και ιστορική ταυτότητα της Λάρνακας. Παράλληλα, με την κατασκευή των τριών πλατειών, αναμένεται ότι θα προωθηθούν άμεσα και οι νέες ρυθμίσεις κυκλοφορίας και στάθμευσης στο εμπορικό κέντρο.


Έπονται κι άλλα έργα
Μιλώντας στον "Π", ο δήμαρχος Ανδρέας Μωυσέως υποσχέθηκε ότι μετά την προκήρυξη των τριών πλατειών, μέχρι το τέλος του 2007, θα προκηρυχθούν δύο ακόμα σημαντικά έργα για τη Λάρνακα, η Α΄ φάση του παραλιακού δρόμου Λάρνακας - Δεκέλειας (από τον κόμβο λιμανιού μέχρι τα Λειβάδια) και η επέκταση της λεωφόρου Φανερωμένης (από το Cineplex μέχρι τον κόμβο του νέου ΓΣΖ). Ο κ. Μωυσέως είπε ότι η εκτέλεση του έργου των πλατειών θα αποτελέσει τη βάση για το Σχέδιο Περιοχής, το οποίο αφορά την ανάπτυξη και την αναζωογόνηση ολόκληρου του αστικού εμπορικού κέντρου της Λάρνακας.

article from cyprus mail

Three compete to transform Larnaca marina
By Jean Christou

THREE tenders for the development and expansion of Larnaca marina and port by private investors were submitted to the government yesterday for a project 13 years in the offing.

Tender after tender has been cancelled due often to a lack of interest in the project by private investors. As a result, the island has lost out on millions of pounds of revenues due to the smallness of Larnaca marina.
Many potential customers have over the years also turned to neighbouring countries, such as Greece, Turkey, Israel and Lebanon.

Now, however, three potential investors have submitted bids for the project, which will effectively join Larnaca port and marina into a huge complex that may even include hotels and housing units.
Vouros Investments Ltd, the Larnaca-Zenon joint venture and D.J. Karapatakis and Sons Ltd were the three consortia that submitted bids yesterday, Communications and Works Minister Maria Malaktou-Pampalli told a news conference in Nicosia.

“Once the project is completed, Larnaca port will become the main passenger port in Cyprus and large cruise ships will be able to moor there,” Malaktou-Pampalli said.

“This will be the biggest infrastructure project in Larnaca after the new international airport,” she added, referring to the 600-million euro construction of a new terminal due to be completed in 2009.
The Minister said that around 1,000 vessels would be able to berth at the new Larnaca marina compared to the 400 it can handle today. “Facilities will be high quality,” she added.

The project foresees the new marina up and running by the end of 2010, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Makis Constantinides told the Cyprus Mail.

Constantinides said it was difficult to put an estimate on the cost of the multi-million project as it would also encompass the development of Laranca port into a passenger terminal as part of a future phase. He was also unable to cite the capacity of the new passenger terminal until the Ministry examines what is being proposed by the consortiums.
“It's a unified project and it's going to be their [the contractor’s] baby,” he said. “It will be up to them and hopefully if everything goes well, we will make a decision by the end of the year.”

Malaktou-Pampalli said that as part of the project, the Phinikoudes area would be extended up to the marina and port with new pedestrianised roads, with more caf?s and restaurants.
“Today we enter the final stretch,” she said.
Also yesterday, the Minister announced that four tenders had been submitted for the new £180 million Paphos-Polis highway, which is due to be completed in four years.

The 31 kilometre four-lane motorway will include side-roads linking the main motorway to other towns in the area such as Latsi and Tsada, nine junctions, seven flyovers, two by-pass valleys, and two tunnels.
There will also be 25 underground and two over-ground passages to restore the existing road network, which could be affected from the construction.

“This is a very important project for the city and the district of Paphos as it will provide easy and safe access to the town and the north-western region, something that gives new prospects for tourist development,” the Minister said.

Commenting on the high cost for a 31-km stretch, Constantinides said it was because the government had chosen not just to focus on the technical aspects but the social effect of the road, as there had been some local concerns about the environment. That was why the flyovers and tunnels were being constructed, he said.

The four consortia which submitted bids yesterday for the road project were: Pafos-Marion, Elliniki Technodomiki TEB S.A, Strabag–Nemesis and Kinyras Kinyras.

There are many projects waiting to be developed in Larnaca. One of them is the extension of the Foinikoudes south wards up until the Makenzi beach next to the airport and the one northwards up to the port once the oil refinery plant is completely removed.

The new marina, port and airport will attract around 5000 workers in larnaca boosting its population (since they will be joined with their families). Hopefully all these will put Larnaca on the map of tourist cyprus!!

*keeping fingers crossed*
