The road between Platres and Troodos was closed to all vehicles on Sunday afternoon due to high levels of traffic.

Police advised road users in the area to take an alternative route via the road between Trooditissa and Prodromos.

Earlier, police had noted an increased number of vehicles on roads in the area as people flocked to the mountains to experience the snow.

They also advised road users to “avoid collisions”.

All roads in mountainous areas in Cyprus had been open to all vehicles earlier, but police advised drivers to be especially careful and vigilant as they remain slippery.

They added that they had taken “specific measures” in Troodos to facilitate and ensure the safety of visitors to the area, while advising those travelling to remain informed about the latest developments and drive with care.
