AMCO is contractor of a large Smart Bus Stop project in Cyprus

The consortium “A.S. Aircontrol Ltd & AMCO SA”, won the tender for the installation of 4,450 bus stops in Cyprus, within the framework of the “THALEIA 2021-2027” program.

The project concerns the installation of 4,450 new smart bus stops and bus stops and the upgrading of more than 1,000 existing stops throughout Cyprus.

More specifically, the contract provides for the construction and installation of 2,350 pylons throughout Cyprus, of which 350 will be with integrated technology, while the remaining 2,000 will be with lighting and information in printed form. In addition, 1,350 small and 650 large sheltered stops are planned in urban areas, as well as 100 large sheltered and weather-protected shelters in mountainous areas.

In addition, existing bus stops will be upgraded and placed on minor axes. Furthermore, the placement of 200 bicycle racks and 20 bicycle stations at central stops is planned, to encourage the use of bicycles and combined traffic.

The scope of the project is the continuous upgrading of the passenger experience for all citizens, encouraging them to use alternative mobility in order to reduce traffic and environmental problems, thus ensuring a more “green” and “intelligent” sustainability of the cities of Cyprus.

The project, with a total value of €61,658,761.88 plus VAT and a duration of 15 years, is co-financed by the European Union.
