The rainfall that occurred at noon on Monday in areas of Paphos, Limassol and Nicosia, as well as the snowfall that occurred in the wider Troodos region, affect traffic, since they make the road surface slippery.

Specifically, at around 1.00:XNUMX in the afternoon, on the section of the Paphos-Limessos highway, between Pissouri and Avdimos, there is heavy rain and hail, resulting in the flow and accumulation of water and hail that make the roadway dangerously slippery.

Rainfall also occurs in other areas of the Pafos-Limessos highway, as well as in areas of the Nicosia-Kokkinotrimithia highway, without however presenting any particular problems on the road network. However, caution is advised to passing vehicle drivers, for safe driving in the rain.

In Troodos, due to the snowfall, the Platron-Troodos, Karvouna-Troodos, and Prodromos-Troodos roads are ONLY open to vehicles with four-wheel drive or equipped with anti-skid chains.

In the mountainous areas of Morphou, and in particular on the roads Kakopetrias-Karvounas and Pedoulas-Kykkos, there are no particular problems in the road network. The situation is also problem-free in the road network of the cities, in all the provinces.

It is pointed out that due to the prevailing winter conditions, the situation on the road network is changing. The public is urged, as before their movements, to be informed about the condition of the roads through the announcements made by the Police.
