Rain and snow keep some roads closed

Rain and snow continue to cause problems to the road network, and police have warned the public to check the latest reports on the police website or the police application before driving in affected areas as the situation keeps changing.

On Friday morning, the road from Mandria to Ayios Nicolaos was closed to traffic due to landslides, and the roads leading to Troodos from Prodromos, Platres and Karvounas were open to 4X4 vehicles and cars equipped with snow chains only.

In the Paphos region, the Kelokedaros – Amargetis and Salamiou – Galataria roads remain closed.

More rain and snow are expected over the weekend.
