The Paphos to Polis Motorway - Part 2

Published 3rd of October, 2019

To The Map (Again)


Ok, so that was a summary of what we will be seeing. Let's get back to those maps. If you recall, for each map that the authorities produced, I do a complementary map that shows where the photographs were taken. To be honest, this is as much for my benefit as it is yours.

You're Welcome


When I was out taking pictures for the blog, I visited an awful lot of similar looking valleys. Without numbering my shots I would never know which picture was from which valley. To be honest, I don't think anybody would notice if I transposed a couple of images anyway (except maybe Max!), but I like to be as accurate as possible.

So, onto the first image...

Minthis Excavations


The second part of our journey begins where we finished part 1. The motorway is coming up this valley, just about where I am standing, and in to the hill behind me.

Distant Hill


It will go through there, more or less following the course of the pylons. Incidentally, I make no apologies if the tunnel is actually 20 metres to the right of that. These shots are only supposed to give you a general idea.

Tunnel View


That's where the tunnel will enter. Above it you can just see the European E4 Long Distance Path. It goes through Minthis Hills before descending into the Ezousa Valley.

The Paphos to Polis Motorway - Part 1

A new motorway is coming to Paphos. It will link the existing A6 motorway to the North West coast of the island, reduce travel time, and aid congestion on the B7. That's the plan, anyway. Alternatively, it will destroy precious natural areas and be an expensive waste of money. We decided to take a look at the proposed route for ourselves, so now at least you will know exactly where the motorway will go. Possibly.

Polemi Sunrise

A couple of days ago I was up bright and early running some errands, and I couldn't help but notice the beautiful sunrise. Naturally enough, I took some pictures, and this put me in the mood to take some more snaps as I carried out my chores...

Chasing a Rainbow

This morning I set off with a view to photographing Evretou Overspill, as it is due to overflow any moment now. I got a bit distracted along the way, and ended up chasing a lovely rainbow...
