Heavy rain, low visibility on Nicosia-Kokkinotrimithia highway, snow in Troodos

Police are warning drivers to be particularly careful as visibility on the Nicosia-Kokkinotrimithia-Akaki highway and the wider road network in the area is low because of heavy rain.

Drivers are urged to drive slowly and to keep a safe distance from other vehicles.

Special care should be exercised where there is accumulation of water and roads are slippery, police added.

The following roads are open but slippery:

Pedoulas-Prodromos, Pedoulas-Pinewood-Kakopetria, Prodromos-Lemythou, Prodromos-Trooditssa-Platres, Prodromos-Trooditissa- Platres.
