Roads in Attica closed due to heavy snow

The road above the “Zygos” restaurant on Parnitha Avenue and Kleisthenis road and Penteli Avenue in Penteli, from the junction with Anapafseos Road for Penteli-bound lanes have been closed to traffic due to snow, the police said on Monday evening.

Police had earlier closed the road in the Kalopoula area on Mount Hymettus and the Penteli-Nea Makri road from Agios Petros up to the 414 Military Hospital in Penteli, in both directions, again due to snow.

Meanwhile, icy conditions meant that snow chains or snow tyres were needed by vehicles travelling on the Katsimidio rural road to Ippokrateio Politia after the restaurant “Thea” and from the 5th km of the old Athens-Thiva national road heading toward Mandra and the 27th km of the same road in both directions from Kaza.
