12 mln euro spent in renovating Skanderbeg Square in joint Gov’t-Municipality project
The amount invested in the newly renovated Skanderbeg Square goes to about 12 million euros.
In a statement for TV SCAN, project coordinator Genti Agolli stressed that the square has had a cost of 10 million Euros covered by the government, many available through regional development fund.
Tirana Municipality has invested the sum of EUR 2 million from the budget, and this sum was spent only for the underground parking lot.
“The investment amounts to about 10 million euros for both the parts. The first phase of the square has finished and over 50% of the second phase is now over, while the underground parking has been totally completed. The central square and several parks around the square are functional since several days and the underground parking is open for the public since two days now. Underground parking has cost around 1.8 million,” Agolli said.
Further on Agolli stressed that now they are working on the second phase of the project and it is currently being implementing at more than 50%.
This phase involves investment in the part after Skanderbeg monument, and according Agolli this area is expected to become pedestrian with limited traffic.
“We will also have the park next to the library, between the mosque and the library. Even the area in front of the Socialist Party and Children’s Theater will change, as well as the area between the ministries and the municipality and up to the boulevard at the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Finance. This area is all going to be pedestrian and it’s going to have a limited traffic.”
The works in Skanderbeg Square lasted almost one year and the number of employed persons reached some 1000.
