The Turkish Cypriot Construction Contractors Association has warned of traffic delays in Nicosia because of a protest action they will be taking.
The Union said they are protesting against the fact that the Famagusta – Iskele – Yenibogazici Development Plan has not been published. Therefore they intend to drive to the Prime Ministry in their work vehicles from the designated meeting points.
A number of meeting points and the route for contractors and subcontractors to participate in the action have been announced.
