The renovation works of Rodia square have started, with the objective of Malevizi Municipality to upgrade the most beautiful “balcony” of Heraklion. The renovation project of Rodia square is being carried out with a new study prepared by the Municipality of Malevizio, with a budget of €715,000, with €400,000 coming from the Municipality of Malevizio’s own resources and €315,000 from resources of the Philodimos program.
In parallel with the renovation project of the square, the undergrounding of the DEDDIE networks will also be implemented, both in the square and in its perimeter road, contributing to the integrated character of the intervention. The cost of the undergrounding of the PPC networks is entirely borne by the company ARIADNI, a subsidiary of ADMIE, as a donation to the Municipality as part of the package of compensatory benefits for the Great Electric Interconnection of Crete via Korakia.
The Mayor of Malevizio, Menelaos Bokeas, was in the area yesterday, who was informed by engineers of the Technical Service of the Municipality and the contractor about the construction stages of the project as well as its schedule. He emphasized in his statements that “the new architectural study that we prepared from scratch will give life to the public space again. Rhodia Square soon acquires a new look and becomes the most beautiful “balcony” of Heraklion.
