Roads

Roads are slippery in the mountains because of ice. All roads to Troodos are open, police said.

Drivers are urged to be particularly careful, to drive slowly and keep a safe distance from other vehicles and give priority to other drivers where necessary.

Because the situation on the roads, particularly in the mountains, is constantly changing because of the weather, drivers are urged to stay up dated  on conditions from the police’s app or website.
