Paphos - Polis Motorway Progress Report
It's time for another look at the new motorway works, to see how they are progressing. Since our last look they have been busy. A definite tunnel is visible and foundations for one of the bridges are well underway...
Blue Skies Over Stroumpi
They are building a new motorway between Paphos and Polis. In Phase 1, they are constructing a single-lane route that runs from the A6 motorway in Koloni up to Stroumpi. If you want a detailed outline of the route you should see the article we wrote a couple of years ago, on the Paphos to Polis Motorway.
A New Bridge
You can't yet see it from the B7, but they are building a new bridge right next to it, in the run-up to Stroumpi. At the moment they are constructing the pillars that will support it. The B7 is to the left. Just below the picture, it loops round to the garage.
This is the view from the other side.
One of Two
There will actually be another bridge right next to it, beyond that ridge in the centre of the picture. This will carry traffic above the B7 towards Minthis Hills.
Paradise and Hell
Drivers on the bridge will have a lovely view of the wilderness to the West of the B7 here. This area is known by the locals as Paradise and Hell. It is incredibly beautiful but hard to negotiate area, with a deep, hidden gorge and an ancient bridge. For more information, click on the link.
