The 'owners' of this section of the A1 finally 'learned' that they should use mixed case letters on signs. I am optimistic that in some years they will 'learn' that they should indicate the motorway number as A1 rather than 1.

(A1, A6/A62/A64/A65/A642 and A90 are still the only motorways signed as 1, 6/62/64/65/642 and 90).

That is, indeed, true.
I really don't know why the did so, instead of signing the motorway as A1................that's stupid, it makes no sense.....

You mean that the road is going to be reconstructed?

It is already reconstructed and should have been finished by now. Unfortunately there are delays and the road will be ready during 2015.

When I was going to Greece through Bulgaria a few months ago the part that was not yet upgraded to highway was full of potholes.

Below is the current situation regarding A25.
Image

Works on both green part, which were suspended for over 3 years, are currently in quite good shape and near to completion. Both parts are almost new highway separated from existing national road.

After that whole axis A25 will be a dual carriageway. But there will be a "hole" in highway standards as the medium completed part (Christos I/C - Kamarwto I/C) is currently in very bad condition full of potholes. This part was one of the first part of A25 upgraded to dual carriageways many years ago.

As an atheist, I would say: Thank God, because we almost broke our car when we drove on the potholes from Neo Petritsi to Strymoniko. The Bulgarian part is a quite good quality main road, but I hope they would upgrade their part to motorway soon.

Unfortunately, anything that is not maintained by the private sector is in bad condition.

Everything (and I mean that) in any part of life in modern Greece that is governed by the state is in bad condition.

There is nowhere such incompetent state and this is the cause for all our problems.

That part of A25 is just a small example.

Some sections of A25 will remain 2x2 without emergency lanes and speed limit of 90 km/h, as these ones:

The same route, is being prolongated at the Kassandra finger of Chalkidiki peninsula, up to the Kallithea-Siviri road, as a 2x2 expressway. The progress is visible on Gmaps:

I think near 500km is under construction right now, most of that is a restart of motorway works that were abandoned in the economic uncertainty of 2008-2011.

If you could wait until 2016 you would find more or less all of that is finished and that only a few obvious gaps still remain in the core motorway network in Greece.
