Nicosia District Court Construction Set for Five-Year Completion

**New Nicosia District Court Buildings Set for Completion in Five Years**

In a recent announcement that promises to enhance the efficiency of the administration of justice in Cyprus, Transport Minister Alexis Vafeades has confirmed that the construction of the new Nicosia District Court buildings is expected to be completed within the next five years. This statement came after a House legal committee meeting which also saw the presence of Justice Minister Marios Hartsiotis.

During the meeting, Hartsiotis highlighted a long-standing issue that has been impeding the swift administration of justice. However, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel as he reported significant progress in the preparatory stages for the new courthouse. The completion of essential preliminary work, including an archaeological survey, explosives survey, and traffic study, sets a solid foundation for the upcoming construction phase. Furthermore, an initial costing of the project has been conducted to ensure financial oversight.

The Transport Ministry has been particularly proactive regarding logistical considerations, such as the creation of a second access route through the adjacent Unficyp camp. Vafeades mentioned that discussions with the Department of Public Works have already taken place to address this matter.

Looking ahead, Vafeades outlined several critical steps that need to be undertaken. These include updating the project’s budget to identify potential cost reductions, collaborating with the Department of Urban Planning to refine designs, and initiating an architectural competition to select the best vision for the new court buildings.

Additionally, representatives from the Foreign Ministry have indicated that consultations are ongoing regarding the relocation of certain Unficyp camp structures. Final recommendations on this matter are anticipated soon.

The development of the new court buildings is a significant step towards modernizing Cyprus’s judicial infrastructure and underscores the government’s commitment to improving public services. As the project moves forward, stakeholders and citizens alike eagerly await the positive impact it will have on the country’s legal system.
