Kornos highway entrance a death trap

Any time Kornos residents, and other drivers, attempt to enter the Limassol-Nicosia highway they require luck to make it unscathed.

The highway entrance at Kornos is badly designed, as the Ministry of Transport itself acknowledges, making it highly dangerous.

The entrance lane drivers from Kornos must use to merge into the highway is only 50 metres long, making it nearly impossible to gain the necessary speed to enter the 100 kilometre per hour highway.

In addition, it does not give the opportunity to drivers occupying the left lane to move to the right lane, thus allowing the Kornos drivers to enter the left lane.

As a result, the Kornos drivers are either forced to drive on the side of the highway until the left lane is freed, or they must take a chance to merge onto the highway without being up to speed, endangering themselves and other drivers.
