I have ripped the below from a post I did on May 11 with Lexie08 and veniceJ over in the Sorrento forum, as I can see the topic of the 1.4km stretch of road closure to place netting upon a mountain-side, between Praiano and Furore (effecting travel between Amalfi-Positano/Positano-Amalfi) may continue for some time as readers log into the forums.
Here are the full details of the road closure:
The road is closed between 5am until 5.30pm. That's right, 5am.
And it opens every fifteen minutes, every hour at the 45 minute mark of that hour. For example, 5.45am, 6.45am, 7.45am...
And the location of this 1.4km stretch of mountain-netting-and-fanging-about-scratching-foreheads-for-months-on-end-work is, as I've said earlier, on the Amalfi-side of Praiano, from Furore Fjord to the Marina di Praia, which is Praiano's little port.
Now, I will add this further:
How it is set to disrupt tourist traffic is not known as it is already proving a nightmare for locals and it is very low season.
However, for those heading from Sorrento to Positano via SITA bus, it should be all fine.
Those staying in Positano and Praiano and wanting to get to Amalfi or the towns of Furore and Conca dei Marini (the Emerald Grotto) with the final destination of Amalfi, using any form of road transport, will be severely effected.
Ferry from Positano's main dock to Amalfi will be the most effective method - Coop Sant'Andrea are the only ferry company doing this service (they run the Positano-Amalfi-Salerno return).
Those arriving to Amalfi from Salerno-Vietri-Cetara-Maiori-Minori-Ravello or Atrani via SITA bus will not be effected.
Those staying in Amalfi wanting to get to Praiano and Positano, by any road transport method, will be severely affected. Ferry is the best option.
The road is actually completely closed at the moment and is expecting to be so for another two weeks. Coop Sant'Andrea are currently ferrying locals and tourists to and from Positano/Amalfi.
I suggest you all get exact arrival details from your accomms ASAP and really ask them the specifics of How To Arrive.
I will update this all of course if the road block lifts for good in the meantime, but with a stated finish date of early August (they began in January, go figure), I highly doubt it will change. But this is the south and as I have said a few times before, things can change in the blink of an eye down here.
Coop Sant'Andrea will be running their full ferry schedule by Easter and I will post this when it comes to hand.
