What are the scheduled roadworks on the Limassol-Nicosia highway?

The Limassol-Nicosia highway will have scheduled roadworks affecting nighttime travel, including:

  • Local repair from Mouttagiaka to Moni (9 PM-6 AM)
  • Maintenance at Nicosia entrance and up to Nicosia-Larnaca junction
  • Cleaning from Kalamon roundabout to Agia Varvara exit (9 PM-2 AM)
  • Barrier replacements (9 PM-5 AM, weekdays only)

Motorists should expect diversions and adhere to safety advisories.

The Limassol-Nicosia highway is set for a series of roadworks that will affect travelers during nighttime hours. The Department of Public Works has scheduled local repair works and maintenance activities that will necessitate partial road closures and traffic diversions. Motorists are advised to exercise caution during these periods.

Limassol to Nicosia: Mouttagiaka to Moni Section

Beginning tonight, and also including tomorrow night, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the next day, the Limassol-Nicosia highway will undergo local repair works. This will specifically impact the stretch from Mouttagiaka to Moni. During these operations, both traffic lanes in the direction from Limassol to Nicosia will be temporarily shut down for a distance of approximately three (3) kilometers. Consequently, traffic flow will be rerouted onto the opposite side of the highway, which will be modified to accommodate two-way movement.

Maintenance Work at the Entrance of Nicosia

Simultaneously, maintenance work will extend to the section of the highway at the entrance of Nicosia, continuing up to the junction with the Nicosia-Larnaca highway. Notably, this portion comprises six lanes and will be subject to new overnight works. Activities such as cleaning the central lane and maintaining the trees on the central median are planned. For safety, these operations will be supported by a sweeper, additional vehicles with flashing lights, and a police patrol.

Nicosia’s Kalamon Roundabout to Agia Varvara Exit

Tonight and tomorrow night, another set of works will take place on the section from the Kalamon roundabout to the Agia Varvara exit. Scheduled from 9:00 PM until 2:00 AM the following day, this will involve the cleaning of the central lane and the maintenance of roadside trees.

Ongoing Barrier Replacement Works

Since Monday, July 8th, and expected to continue until Friday, July 19th, barrier replacements are being carried out on the central median of the highway. This work is conducted on weekdays, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM, and does not occur on weekends. During these hours, traffic is being diverted to the two left lanes to facilitate the ongoing construction.

Traffic and Safety Advisory

The Police have issued a notice urging drivers to be vigilant while passing through construction zones. Motorists are advised to adhere to reduced speed limits, maintain sufficient distance from the vehicle ahead, and obey temporary road signs. These measures are crucial for the protection of both the workers on site and fellow drivers.

The planned roadworks are part of the ongoing commitment to maintain and improve the infrastructure of the Limassol-Nicosia highway. The Department of Public Works appreciates the understanding and cooperation of the public during these necessary but temporary inconveniences.

The Limassol-Nicosia highway will have nighttime roadworks from Mouttagiaka to Moni, Nicosia entrance to Nicosia-Larnaca junction, and Kalamon roundabout to Agia Varvara exit, as well as barrier replacements. Traffic will be diverted, and safety advisories should be followed.

The roadworks include local repairs, maintenance, cleaning, and barrier replacements. Drivers should be cautious and follow the instructions given.
