That is another huge highway project that went on.

Some info on the Egnatia Highway




A modern closed motorway 680 kilometres long and 24.5 metres wide over the greatest part of its length following a new alignment and running across Epirus and Northern Greece from Igoumenitsa to Evros, the Egnatia Motorway is one of the largest road construction projects in Europe.

Nine major vertical axes connect the motorway with Albania , FYROM, Bulgaria and Turkey . Furthermore, 5 ports and 6 airports service the road.

A raft of tunnels, bridges and interchanges carry it across the Greek countryside.

On the threshold of the 21st century, one of the largest road construction projects being carried out in Greece (and, indeed, anywhere in Europe ) is the Egnatia Motorway, the modern reincarnation of the great Roman highway known as the Via Egnatia.

The 680 km Egnatia Motorway is a modern motorway that will probably be the only road (and by extension the only transport) link spanning Northern Greece from its western to its eastern border. From its starting-point at Igoumenitsa, it runs across the Prefectures of Thesprotia, Ioannina, Grevena, Kozani, Imathia, Thessaloniki , Serres, Kavala, Xanthi, Rodopi and Evros, to the village of Kipoi on the Turkish border.

Nine major vertical axes provide links to Albania , FYROM, Bulgaria and Turkey , and the whole system is served by 720 km of service roads.

The Egnatia Motorway was designed to the specifications of the Trans-European road network. It is a closed dual carriageway motorway with a central reserve, two traffic lanes plus an emergency lane per direction, for a total paved width of 24.5 metres over its greatest part, except for the road's mountainous sections.

What makes it one of the most interesting technical projects in Greece today is the number of structures needed to carry it across the countryside.

The realisation of this motorway requires the construction of:

1650 bridges, with a combined length of 40 km (or 80 km measured as single-carriageway bridges)

74 tunnels, with a combined length of 49,5 km (or 99 km measured as single-carriageway tunnels). Three of these tunnels are more than 3 km long: the Driskos Twin-Bore Tunnel, 4.7 km long per carriageway, the Dodoni Twin-Bore Tunnel, 3.4 km long per carriageway, and the Metsovo Single-Bore Tunnel, 3.5 km long, which is already constructed. The tunnels on the inland alignment Strymonas - Peramos are also included.

50 interchanges with the existing road network.

43 river crossings

11 railway crossings.


STRETCHING: From Igoumenitsa in the Prefecture of Thesprotia to Kipoi in the Prefecture of Evros

FOR A TOTAL LENGTH OF: 680 kilometres

SERVING THE REGIONS OF: Thesprotia - Ioannina - Grevena - Kozani - Imathia - Thessaloniki - Kavala - Xanthi - Rodopi - Evros

LINKED WITH THE BORDERS OF: Albania - FYROM - Bulgaria - Turkey, through nine major vertical axes

PASSING THROUGH THE TOWNS OF: Igoumenitsa - Ioannina - Metsovo - Grevena - Kozani - Veroia - Thessaloniki - Kavala - Xanthi - Komotini – Alexandroupolis

LINKED TO THE PORTS OF: Igoumenitsa - Thessaloniki - Kavala – Alexandroupolis

AND THE AIRPORTS OF: Ioannina - Kastoria - Kozani - Thessaloniki - Kavala – Alexandroupolis

PASSING NEAR: 332 communities

AND: 30 tourist areas and regions of particular interest

SERVING THE INDUSTRIAL ZONES OF: Ioannina - Florina - Edessa - Thessaloniki - Kilkis - Serres - Drama - Xanthi - Komotini - Alexandroupolis, either directly or by its vertical axes

PROPOSING AND FINANCING: Archaeological excavations, protection of monuments, environmental protection works (biotopes, etc.)

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Dual carriageway with two traffic lanes per direction, a central reserve and an emergency lane on the right.

THE AREA SERVED ACCOUNTS FOR:

36% of the country's total population
33% of its total gross national product
In the primary sector, 54% of total farmland and 65% of total irrigated land
In the secondary sector, 41% of total industrial employment, and
51% of total mining activity.

Thank you sts.
Some more photos
Patras ring road , North Peloponnese




Patras -Olympia national road
no barrier in the middle , around 10-12m width , old and bad design with many intersections on the same level of the road (main reason for the many accidents happening there every year)
But perhaps there is hope since it is announced that the next two years will begin the reconstruction of the national road Korinthos-Patras-Olympia after which this old road will change to a modern Motorway.
I will come back with more photos and details from the forgotten from the state the last 20 years (at least) Peloponnese and the road network which is totally inadequate for today.

Wow, this Egnatia highway project is impressive, but demanding - since a lot of countryside is hilly, the estacades and tunnels are necessity. Well, some countries with similar terrain are dealing with the same realities .
