Heavy rain is falling on the Nicosia-Larnaca highway, near Alambra and Pera Chorio and drivers are being urged to be particularly careful.

It said that there is heavy rain along the highway, visibility is low and the road slippery. Vehicles are moving very slowly near Lymbia because of reduced visibility, and there is heavy traffic, it added.
