Maintenance Work launched on the Çatalköy-Değirmenlik Road (Girne mountain road) on 5th March  2018 has been completed.  Starting from tomorrow (13.03.2018), the temporary usage limitation, implemented since 5th March 2018, will be lifted.

Since 5th March 2018, vehicles carrying less than 9 passengers were banned from using the road between 9am and 7pm and vehicles weighing 5 tons or more were banned from using the road between 7pm and 9am.

Within the framework of the work, 5000 square meters of asphalt has been renewed. Work to replace the damaged crash barriers, traffic signs and line marking the lanes is continuing and will be completed as soon as possible.

With the work completed, the Girne mountain road had become more safe with regards to traffic. The road will continue to be maintained where necessary until the new road with its new route is completed.

We would like to thank drivers and the people living in the area for the patience and understanding they have shown while the work has been carried out.

  1. Good news!police may start weighing the excess loades trucks now!

  2. It now requires speed cameras fitting that averages out speed. One just after the Acapulco turn off and another near the army base on the other side of the mountain. Can’t be difficult and would stop the lunatics that think it’s a race track with no regards for anyone’s safety.

  3. Still won’t use this road, not because IT is dangerous . It is simply the bad driving. Only a solid wall down the centre would stop ‘crashes. ‘ (possibly ‘ None of the crashes have been ACCIDENTS . Nothing accidental about any of the monstrous crashes. Call them RTC’s not RTA’s
