A stretch of the Limassol to Nicosia highway has been reopened after it was closed on Saturday morning because the road was covered in oranges.

According to the police, a large quantity of the fruit had fallen off a truck, resulting in the road surface becoming dangerous.

The road from the exit of Ayios Georgios Alaminou to the Governor’s Beach exit was reopened to traffic at around 12.30pm.

Traffic was diverted onto the old Limassol to Nicosia road.
