The following roads are open only to cars with four wheel drive or which are equipped with snow chains:

The following roads are slippery because of ice:

Pedoulas-Moutoullas and Pedoulas-Lemythou.

In the Paphos district the Amargeti-Kelekedara-Nata road is closed because of flooding of the Ziripilli river and the Galataria-Salamiou road closed because of flooding of the Xeros river. Tselefos bridge is closed for the sixth consecutive day.

Moreover, because of heavy rain a section of the main Paphos-Polis Chrysochous road, some 2 km outside Stroumbi towards Yiolou has receded. The section has been signposted.
