The Kyrenia landscaping project covers the area from Kyrenia castle to the naval cemetery.
The first stage of the project was due to be finished within 6 months but after a year it is far from complete.
Roads were dug up for pipe laying but have still not been resurfaced. There are piles of stones and cement everywhere causing dust pollution.
The man now in charge of the landscaping project, Halil Sabra, said that it was obvious from the start that the timetable was unrealistic.
He said that a tender was produced without consultation and that tourists were now complaining about the mess of the part finished construction.
