Coast road closed at Positano?

Buses from Sorrento aren't running to Positano via the coast road today - they're being diverted via Amalfi

Does anyone have an updated position on the road closure?

Seems to have been a landslip near Piano di Sorrento last night...

Hello Newbold, Peter,

Just out of interest. Which way will they route traffic?

As I understand it, buses from Sorrento are being routed to Amalfi via a mountain route (Castello?) and then on to Positano.

Adm - simple answer, yes....as s more than one road leads to Positano!

Who knows why one should have to look on a Sardinian website, but in this - from yesterday evening....

sardegnaoggi.it/adnkronos/2012-04-23/85a0783…

... they're saying that the temporary diversion if coming from Naples is to go towards the town of Castellammare, and then take the 366 to Agerola....

"I veicoli diretti a Positano vengono deviati all'uscita di Castellammare Centro, sulla strada provinciale ex 366 ''Agerolina''. Percorso inverso per i veicoli in direzione Napoli."

Have a look at these and you may get the idea....

Can't promise it's correct - or that it will still be necessary tomorrow - but you might want to check with your driver, if that's still the plan?

And perhaps he should be speaking with the hotel, who are best placed to know the current state of affairs?

If you are gong by Sita bus Sorrento Positano it will be via Agerola (as of last night). Private cars and shuttle buses are going through. They should clear the situation soon.

Thanks for the updates, guys. Any further info would be very much appreciated - hoping to use SITA buses to get from Sorrento to Positano and Amalfi in the next couple of days.

Do these buses operate on Liberation Day (tomorrow)?

Almost certainly they'll be running tomorrow - but quite possibly only those marked on the timetable with either a "G" for Daily, or an "H" for Sunday and Holidays ...

Make sense?

here is what our Positano Hotel said:

Do not worry about the road closure it was only temporary and this morning the road was reopened.
