Nicosia metro

How would you fancy to see a metro system all around Nicosia? Here is a draft plan.

Nicosia metro

I have no clue who drew this but it seems pretty elaborate and realistic, to say the least. And it would definitely cover all the needs of the capital.

Of course, this is just  a plan, but you never know. Now let’s see a metro for Limassol as well. 🙂

    I remember reading somewhere that it makes no financial sense to build a metro in the city with the population of less than a million.

    I also remember somewhere else that building a metro system on a volcanic island is a major challenge (read: extra cost).

    I also remember somewhere else that building a metro system in the place with frequent earthquakes is a major challenge (read: extra cost).

    I don’t know if any of these is true, but with each one of them turning out to be true, the financial reason for actually going for it is getting worse.

    I wish there was a metro / train system on the island. Heck, I wish there was ANY public transport system on the island! 🙂

    There was an old railway in Cyprus.. a legacy from the colonial era.. but no efforts were made to maintain it and eventually it got destroyed. Shame.
