The zebra crossing on the west of the Haspolat junction has been removed due to traffic safety. A more secure crossing will be placed on the same spot. Works on providing a more secure crossing for pedestrians are continuing. The timeline of the realisation of the project will be made public in the coming weeks.
A “no pedestrians” sign had been erected on the spot of the removed pedestrian crossing thus it is vital for pedestrians not to cross the road for their own safety. On the other hand, the bus stop at the same spot towards Lefkoşa will be dismantled by the Highways Department tomorrow. Crash barriers will be put on the spot to prevent busses from approaching the bus stop pocket.
The bus stop will be moved to another area until necessary precautions are adopted.
