Roads to Troodos are now open (Update 2)

The roads leading to Troodos that were closed to traffic due to congestion are now open police said on Sunday afternoon.

Police said at around 2pm that the roads between Trooditissa and Troodos and Karvounas to Troodos that were closed earlier in the day due to traffic congestion are now open.

The roads had been closed to traffic due to the large number of excursionists who decided to visit the snowy area.  The height of snow on Sunday morning in the Troodos Square was 78 centimetres.

Earlier in the day police said the following roads were open to traffic but slippery due to frost:

Pedoulas-Pinewood-Kakopetria

Moutoullas-Pedoulas

Pedoulas-Kykkos

Kakopetria-Karvounas

Drivers are urged to be especially careful and patient, keep safety distances from other vehicles and comply with the traffic signs and police officers’ instructions.
