Roman road remains on Crete to be relocated to different site

The remains of a paved Roman road found in the forecourt of Crete’s Venizelio Hospital are to be transferred and reinstalled in another location, according to a contract signed by Crete’s regional authority governor Stavros Arnaoutakis on Monday.

Arnaoutakis noted that the contract, with a total budget of 322,500 euros, allows both the protection of cultural heritage and the hospital’s expansion. The project will be financed using EU National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) funds.

He announced that a tender for the expansion of the hospital, which will improve health services on the island, is expected to take place in May or June.
