Larnaca's technical school breaks ground after six-year delay

The school will comprise 22 buildings


After a prolonged six-year wait, construction on the new Technical School of Larnaca is set to kick off this spring in the Aradippou area, near the Rizoelias roundabout.

As Philenews reports, the Saint Lazarus Technical School, grappling with a severely dilapidated current building, will soon see its needs met by this €35 million project.

Initially estimated at €21 million, the construction plans expanded to double its size, catering to the increased demands in the Larnaca province and accommodating 630 students.

Andreas Maragos, head of Technical Services at the Ministry of Education and Culture, disclosed that bids are under evaluation, anticipating the commencement of the project in March or April. The three-year initiative aims to vacate the Saint Lazarus Technical School by September 2027.

Situated on a 22,500 sq.m. area with 22 buildings, the new school will feature classrooms spanning various subjects, from history and religious studies to specialized workshops encompassing automotive engineering, hotel electromechanical equipment, electrical installations, metal constructions, natural gas piping, automation, Autotronics robotic systems, hydraulics, construction, hairdressing, graphic arts, and a machine shop.
