  • [01] Tempi section open

    The Tempi section of the country's main north-south highway, which has been closed since mid-December following a massive landslide, reopened at noon on Thursday to Easter holidaymakers, and will reclose for completion of repairs after the holiday. Cars passing through Tempi will not able to stop or park and all parking areas are closed.

    Tempi has been closed to traffic since December 17, 2009 following a landslide that claimed the life of an Italian engineer, who was project director of a tunnel being constructed at the site, while arriving to inspect damage caused by falling rocks, opened temporarily to facilitate the Easter holidaymakers.

    The Tempi intersection will remain in operation until the Sunday after Easter (April 11).

    Infrastructures, Transports and Networks minister Dimitris Reppas on Monday expressed satisfaction with the progress in the restoration works, noting that it is a complex project that, according to the relevant study, required interventions at 12 points.

    Of those, he added, the nine interventions have been completed, while the remaining three points do not present risk to motorists and their completion requires material that the contractor carrying out the project will take delivery of in 10-15 days.
