Limassol-Paphos highway reopens after fatal accident (Updated)


A section of the Limassol to Paphos highway near the exit to Paramali, in the vicinity of the British bases, that had been closed in both directions due to a fatal accident reopened to traffic at around 10am on Monday.

British bases police announced the death of a 35-year-old Russian woman, a permanent resident of Cyprus, who lost control of her vehicle in circumstances under investigation.

From preliminary findings, it appears excessive speed was a factor in the accident. She hit the central reservation violently, and was fatally injured.

The specific road segment has previously been the scene of a double fatality road accident.

During the road closure, drivers were diverted through the Paramali exit.
