Zakynthos:- Green light for flood protection works

The way is now open for the implementation of the flood protection works in the Tsirogianni stream after the approval of the auction documents and the commitment of credit of 680 thousand euros, which became a reality after a series of meetings at the Ministry of Infrastructure.

In a statement by our local MP, Mr Dionysios Aktypis he specifically said:-
More specifically, I had repeatedly raised with both the Minister of Infrastructure Mr. Costas Karamanlis and the Secretary General of Infrastructure Mr. G. Karagiannis the issue of the need for immediate implementation of the flood protection works in Zakynthos. In fact, as it was underlined in the press release from January 13, 2021, the announcement for the assignment of the study for the formulation and implementation of the strategic plans (master plan) of flood protection projects in Zakynthos estimated at 264,148.56 euros (value without VAT) has already been published.
The implementation of flood protection projects on our island is a key commitment that is now taking shape after a series of meetings at the Ministry of Infrastructure as early as November 2019.
Now both the strategic planning (master plan) of Zakynthos Flood Works and the flood protection project at the point where the stream “Tsirogianni” exists are entering the implementation trajectory.
Through the studies that will be prepared, we proceed to the formation and implementation of a complete and detailed flood protection plan for Zakynthos.
👏 I would like to warmly thank both the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Mr. K. Karamanlis and the Secretary General of Infrastructure Mr. G. Karagiannis for their prompt response to my request, as well as for their crucial contribution to the implementation of flood protection projects. Zakynthos.
