In the district of Morphou, the Prodromos-Troodos road is ONLY open for vehicles equipped with four-wheel drive and/or anti-skid chains.

Drivers should be very careful on the Orkonta – Pedoulas, Pedoulas – Pinewood and Orkonta – Campos roads due to rocks sliding on the road.

In Limassol, all roads leading to Troodos are open to all vehicles but there is fog in the area.

Drivers traveling on the above road networks are advised to be extremely careful, maintain low speeds, keep the traffic lights on and keep distances from the vehicles in front.
