Parts of the main Paphos to Polis Chrysochous road are becoming dangerous and prone to collapse at and around the entrance to the community of Giolou.

The road section has been closed off for months in the past, with detours required through Kathikas and Steni which could add up to 30 to 40 minutes to the journey to and from Paphos.

The community of Giolou itself has already spent close to €3,000 out of its own coffers to feed workers during the previous road works and pay people to be at the site guiding traffic at the detour points. Sylvia Antoniou, a community council member, noted that three new problem spots have appeared where the road substrate has become visible and collapse is likely imminent after rains. The problem doesn’t just affect Giolou, it affects residents of all the neighbouring communities.
