Sewage waters from damaged pipework have been flooding some parts of Nicosia Industrial zone recently. When workers and businessmen in the industrial zone returned from their Labour Day holiday today, they discovered that the problem had become worse.
Recent rains have filled large holes created by workmen digging, which are now becoming breeding grounds for flies and insects.
Local businessmen have been complaining that the area is now a health hazard but there has been no response from the authorities.
As a final straw, recent construction work in the area, has resulted in telephone lines being cut so locals cannot make credit card transactions.
