S7 E77, Poland

4,5 km of S7 motorway (Warsaw - Cracow), section Szydłowiec-South - Skarżysko-Kamienna-North was opened today.
It is not yet a "full" opening, as there is a 70 kph speed limit, but nevertheless, the full 2x2 profile is available.

A9, France

30 May 2017

The new A9 around Montpellier in Southern France opened to traffic today. The new A9 runs parallel to the old route, partially directly adjacent and partially a few hundred meters apart.

It is a new six-lane autoroute, the total project length is 25 kilometers. The old A9 has been renumbered to A709. The new A9 features no exits and solely serves through traffic, that does not have to leave the closed toll system anymore. The project cost was € 800 million. The project has been completed six months ahead of schedule.

Today it opens to northbound traffic, tomorrow morning it will open to southbound traffic.

Various motorways in Greece

1st June 2017

6.5 km of A5 opened to traffic between Rio-Antirio bridge and Klokova tunnel, in eastern Greece.


2nd June 2017

The last 5 km of A25 opened to traffic between Lefkonas and Kato Christos, in northern Greece.

4.2 km of motorway or expressway (I'm not sure about the number and classification, but it looks like a natural prosecution of A24) opened to traffic between Moudania and Nea Poteidaia, on Chalkidiki peninsula.
