Part of the Nicosia-Limassol highway was effectively shut down for over three hours on Friday after a truck fire near the Governor’s beach area.

The highway was closed at 3.30pm to extinguish the fire, which was put out at 4.20pm, police said. The section of road was then re-opened to traffic but closed again at 5.40pm to remove the truck and its cargo during which time traffic was diverted to the old Nicosia-Limassol road.

The operation was completed at 6.50pm, police said, and the highway reopened for the second time.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
