Ecological Concerns Rise Over Akamas Road Work Debacle

The Akamas road work has sparked ecological concerns due to road widening exceeding environmental plans—10 meters instead of the agreed 6 meters—threatening the biodiversity of this Natura 2000 site. The construction lacked proper oversight, with evidence of environmental guidelines being violated, prompting a halt in activities and an investigation to enforce accountability and protect Akamas’ natural heritage. The situation has drawn the attention of auditors and highranking officials, with conflicting responses from government entities. The lack of environmental supervision and potential claims for compensation from the construction firm further complicate the scenario. The future of Akamas now hinges on the promised investigation by the president, as concerned citizens and environmental advocates hope for accountability and the safeguarding of the natural heritage of Akamas.
