Which section is announced to be opened on 10th January?

Raches – Ag. Marina (19km; map) or Roditsa – Anthili (4km; map). What's the estimated opening date of the other section (which is not to be opened on 10th January)?

As i know, both sections are going to open in January 10, thus converting the A1 into a full motorway (except the Tempi valley section, which is expected to open in August).

No it didn't open yet and as I searched local websites there is no related report regarding road opening. I suppose upcoming early elections on 25/1 effected development, its common in Greece everything to pause during pre-election period.

I have no idea, as there nothing in the news. But I suspect that the Minister of Infrastructure might be 'interested' to be there at the opening ceremony. He did so some weeks ago for a 7Km section on the A8, which was in fact the opening of the 2nd (new) carriageway and the... closure for renovation of the old one. Why not now, as elections are coming in two weeks?

Maybe the minister cannot make it till tomorrow so the road opening simply has to wait.

That thing with the A1 is quite stupid.....what if there are elections??
That means nothing, that part must be opened anyway!!

And speaking about road openings, i heard that the Agios Nikolaos-Kalo Nero segment of the A90 in Crete will open to traffic on Friday.

I don't know the particular situation of Greece, but in other countries there can be no opening ceremonies of roads, railroads, airports, etc. in a period of some months before the elections. In Spain it's two months, if I'm not mistaken, in order to prevent the use of such opening ceremonies as a political achievement for governments that fight for reelection, at least during the campaign.

However, these works can be opened during that period of time if there is no opening ceremony as such, just an opening to the public. But most politicians prefer to wait after the elections in order to get the picture of the opening ceremony, which is really sad...

Why not give the road for public use without all these stupid ceremonies?

In any case, these ceremonies can take place even a few weeks after the opening of the road.

A new segment of BOAK / Northern East-West Road Crete opened to traffic today at noon. It is not a motorway, but a high-standard two-lane highway. It runs from Agios Nikolaos to Kalo Chorio. It is 9.5 kilometers long and has cost € 54 million.

The A90 section opened as announced (source). The section has a length of 9.5km and costs of 54 million €. The construction contract was signed in October 2009.

I don't get it... Chris has already posted it yesterday... Why did I not notice it?

A news article about E65 (A3): > click <.

If I got it right, the works relaunched in early 2014 and are completed by 40% now. It's announced to be opened in December 2015.

Should be this section:
A3: Trikala – Xuniada ~90km (2008 to December 2015) – projectmap


Is there any info about the opening of the two A1 sections?

A3: Yes, you got it right.

A1 Lamia – Stylida – Rahes: According to a local source (please see link below) the section did not open as there were concerns about the reaction to the toll stations in each of the four exits in the area, especially just a few days before the coming elections. There was some thought to open the section without operating the toll stations, but this was considered as useless as the barriers would be there in full view and the provisional measure not to operate them would be understood as a pre-election trick.

Full link (in Greek): http://www.mag24.gr/news/topika/giat...ampsi-stylidas

PS. Please note the two signs on the first picture of the article. The 500m ADS has been put at the same place with the 200m exit mark (also as it has been mentioned before, they still ignore the signing directives of numbering the road as A1).
