Greece's Mykonos Looks to Tackle Congestion

The island of Mykonos is collaborating with the Centre for Research and Technology-Hellas (CERTH) on plans to relieve congestion on the popular island, where tens of thousands of tourists converge in the summer months.
CERTH’s director Evangelos Bekiaris said that “the viable movement of traffic on the islands is a difficult problem that requires specialists and innovative approaches, especially because of the island’s limited space and the fluctuating population numbers.”
Mykonos Mayor Kostas Koukas expressed the hope that the agency would be able to provide immediate solutions to congestion and circulation safety issues.
One in seven residents in Greece lives on an island, where space in residential zones is severely limited. The summer months, when the influx of tourists provides islands with the majority of their annual revenue, however, the problems from pedestrian and motor traffic spike at the same time.
The island authorities and the state agency will also explore the possibility of joint proposals that could be funded by national or EU funds, including the training of Mykonos municipality employees.
