Road Works in Zakynthos Town

Road works in Foskolo street have been under way now for the last 8 days and it seems that it will take it’s time.

As one can see by the photos the road has been dug up on each side, so as the old tar road to be completely cleared and to make way for the new asphalt that will be laid.

Unfortunately, traffic delays on other roads have been caused as drivers make their way around the road works. Agio Sarandas leading into Alexander Roma would be one road to avoid as it is here that the congestion is at its worst.

The road works have come as a relief to many in the area as the road conditions were appalling, especially during the winter months. Many bussinesses are glad to see their area upgraded but hope that the works will be conmpleted within record time as summer approaches.


Zakynthos Informer would like to remind you that repairs will be done throughout the Island and the areas have been noted below in a press release along with their estimated budget by the council:-
