  • [01] EURO TRANSPORT COMMITTEE - TRAFFIC CONGESTION

    Members of the European Parliament Transport Committee, currently visiting Cyprus at the invitation of Cypriot MEP Ioannis Kasoulides, have pointed out the lack of public transport and the traffic congestion problem in Cyprus. The MEPs said that efforts should focus on creating bicycle lanes and sidewalks because ``roads are also for people, not only for cars.``

    Speaking at a press conference in Nicosia, the MEPs referred to the meeting they had earlier on Wednesday with Ministrys of Communications and Works Permanent Secretary Makis Constantinides, who briefed them on the Ministry`s plans concerning public transport. Head of the delegation, German MEP of the European People`s Party Georg Jarzembowski said that the House of Representatives and other authorities should support the efforts and plans of the Ministry in order to solve the traffic problem.

    Jarzembowski said the Ministry`s plans are ``very good`` and pointed out that although ``in the beginning it will be expensive,`` it will be worth the cost and will furthermore be co-financed by the EU. ``When you have it and the people see that is reliable, frequent and good quality, more and more people will use it,`` he said.
