This is true.

By early 2016 we expect a large part of the motorways core network of Greece to be concluded.
There will still be things to be done, but with the exception of the North Motorway of Crete and the rest of E65, all other important motorways will be in operation.

By 2018 the road from Patra to Pyrgos will be ready as well and also the road from Kalo Nero to Tsakwna, thus concluding the motorways network of Peloponnisos.

The part of A1 mentioned earlier is known in Greece as the "Petalo of Maliakos kolpos" i.e. the "Horseshoe of Maliakos bay" (based on its shape).

It is a dangerous part that a lot of people lost their lives at. It is a relief that this part will be avoided, since the modern motorway is a magnificent construction with tunnels and bridges, etc.

Very important part for A1 and the second from last that we are waiting for its conclusion.

Are you sure? The A1 Raches - Ag. Marina was expected to be opened in December 2015!? The section has a length of 19.2km and it's located here: > click <.

If I remember correctly, there is a concurrent anti-flooding project in conjunction with the road works. The anti-flooding project is expected after a year or so, while the road part is almost ready.

At least this is what they are saying in the news.

The antiflooding project refers to another section of A1, New sperchios riverbed - Roditsa interchange which is located a few km west of the section I mentioned (Stylida bypass). According to most local Lamia media, Stylida bypass is ready to operate, most probably before the end of 2014. I assume delay is caused bec they are still constructing toll booths at Agia Marina area.

In any case Stylida bypass section has nothing to do with antiflooding works

Is the antiflooding work done on the other part, Lamia's bypass?

Yes, actually before Lamia's entrance, on the long straight part between Thermopyles interchange and Lamia entrance.

Nice to see the completition of the Lamia-Raches segment of the A1 motorway

But there's something really bad about our motorways (except the newer motorways and the upgraded ones), which is, of course, lack of good signing.

I mean that the signs of this segment will not use capital letters like the rest of the A1 motorway and most of the Greek motorways.
Personally, i think that the best signs are the small-letter signs.

Anyway, i have to admit that i really want to see the whole of the new segment completed and i just hope that more and more motorway openings are going to happen in our country, a country which is in desperate need of motorways.

Road signs in Greece is a huge discussion...Let's not start here

We are in need of motorways, but let's be patient for a year or so: the beginning of 2016 will find Greece with a brand new motorway network that will cover the most important cities and the largest part of the country.

Of course we have more things to do, but at least there will be thousands of motorway kms "under our belt".

Look. It will be possible to drive Greece top ( Bulgarian border) to bottom on a motorway by 2015. Considering where Greece was in 2005 and the 4 lost years from 2009 to 2013 a lot has been done in the last 10 years.

- How are road conditions in Greece in general?

- Is there enough money to maintain roads in good conditions?

I ask because in Spain with economic crisis some roads (including motorways) are in disrepair and bad conditions

A25 near Serres and Bulgarian border is in very bad shape, full of potholes. But when you enter into a narrow valley south of Serres in direction Thessaloniki, the road suddenly becomes excellent, with dual carriageway and hard shoulders at times.

I think that this part of the road (with the potholes) will be ready in a few months - I guess you mean the part from Serres to Promahonas?

It is in Greek, but you can check the photos. The road is ready and I think that they are just testing the tunnels and doing the final pieces of work:

The road will be ready maybe before the beginning of 2015.

The tests of the tunnel technique usually takes months (e.g. at minimum 6 month in Germany). So I guess, the road should get in service in "early 2015".

As far as I know, they've started the tests a few months back.
