Paphos - Polis Motorway Update - January 2024

Published 5th of January, 2024

They have been building the first half of the Paphos to Polis motorway for over a year now. I thought it about time to have another look to see how they were getting on. The pictures in this article were taken during the Holiday Season, so you won't see anybody at work, but it is clear that a lot of progress has been made.

New Beginnings


We begin our report from an area of wasteland near the old Municipal Dump. They have recently built some sort of lodge here. I am not sure exactly what it is, but it looks nice enough. In the distance you can see the motorway works, on the other side of the valley. We shall send the drone over there, before following the motorway route all the way up to Stroumpi.

Motorway Start


This is where the junction between the new road and the existing A6 motorway from Limassol to Paphos will be constructed. It is worth pointing out that initially, the new motorway will be only a single lane in each direction. We are not talking about a new M3 or anything like that. I mention this because people always get angry about anything new. Personally I think it is a good idea, as it will hopefully breath life into some of the villages of Central Paphos, making them more attractive to Cypriot families who want to work in Limassol.

Great Excavations


The terrain here has undergone a huge facelift. What is equally impressive is the area to the right of this, where excavated limestone has been dumped to form new hills.



I am guessing the white structure is for a drain that will run underneath the motorway.

Motorway Crossing


In contrast, I think this will be a tunnel to accommodate the existing farm trail which runs over the course of the new motorway.

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.
