Infrastructure development and maintenance are key for ensuring safe and efficient transportation. The Department of Public Works has announced ongoing nighttime work on key motorway sections in Cyprus. Here, we provide details on the specific motorway segments affected, the nature of the work, and the impact on traffic.
Nicosia-Larnaca Motorway Maintenance
Schedule and Duration
The maintenance on the Nicosia-Larnaca motorway, specifically from the Rizoelia roundabout towards Larnaca, is scheduled for the night of Thursday, October 5, and is expected to be completed by the morning of Friday, October 6. The work is set to take place between the hours of 8:00 PM and 5:30 AM.
Impact on Traffic
This essential maintenance involves road surface improvements in certain sections of the motorway, starting at the Rizoelia roundabout up to the first controlled intersection in Aradippou. As a consequence, both traffic lanes in the direction from Rizoelia towards Larnaca will be closed. Motorists will be redirected to alternative routes during these hours to accommodate the closure and ensure safety.
Authorities are urging drivers who will be navigating this stretch during the work hours to be particularly vigilant. The police recommend driving at reduced speeds, maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front, and heeding the temporary road signs.
Limassol-Nicosia Motorway Work
Continuing Efforts Since September 18
Separate from the Nicosia-Larnaca maintenance, nighttime work has been in progress on the Limassol-Nicosia motorway. Beginning on September 18, 2023, this project is conducted from 9:00 PM until 6:00 AM.
Purpose of Work
The ongoing operation involves the replacement of reflective studs and road barriers, which are essential for nighttime visibility and safety. This task is being executed with minimal disruption to traffic flow.
During the hours of work, one lane will be partially closed over a stretch of approximately 1000 meters. Traffic will be accommodated in the adjacent lane to ensure a smooth passage for vehicles. This project is scheduled to conclude on October 12.
Advisory for Motorists
Motorists are reminded to remain cautious when driving through the construction zones. The police emphasize the importance of adhering to the speed limit, observing a safe trailing distance, and following the provisional road signage.
