All new motorway sections except A1 Stylida bypass? Also A29 Krystalopigi – Koromilia and A1 Skotina – Evangelismos which were announced to be completed by June or August 2015?

There are no works going on as far as I know.

Yes, Stylida bypass is almost ready, but I don't know when it will be delivered to traffic. I don't have info on the A29 and the Skotina-Evangelismos is uncertain, because there are two parts of the construction that intertwined with the rail network and is not yet finalised about how they will proceed.

Something baffles me but I remember that some signs on what is supposed to be 76 Spur (Andritsaina – Krestena – Samiko) still refer to the provincial roads 6 and 11. I am not sure if EO76 spur actually exists: if it did, what legislation declared that particular road as EO76 spur?

Plus, a link to the 1998 document about the (then) new national roads can clear things up a lot.

Thanks in advance.

As far I am concerned the above mentioned road (shown as EO76a at Openstreetmap) is a provincial road (no. 6). But I haven't got the 1998 publication of the Greek Statistical Authority, which seems only available on hard copy, so I am not sure if there has been any alteration since the Government Paper decisions of 1995-96, which classified the then national roads into primary, secondary and tertiary and the then provincial roads into primary and secondary.

Good news regarding the opening of the Agia Marina-Raches section. The direction towards Athens will be opened to public traffic on Monday 16/03 and by the end of the week the opposite direction (towards Thessaloniki) will conclude this very important project.

Anyone interested in the state of our road number network should check the map at the end of the document at http://www.egnatia.eu/Files/Adverts/5006_sow.pdf

Even the provincial roads are there, with the correct Prefecture codes.

@ea1969, I think it is now a matter of asking Egnatia Odos S.A or whoever made the map for all the regions, and release it under the ODbL so it can be applied to OpenStreetMap.

I hope that the project has been concluded and something 'official' will be published about it. There are talks about a coherent numbering system since... 1927-29 and not too much has been made since.

At least there is confirmation about that EO111 myth, which has started in the last few years appearing on maps (Google Maps) and other sites and documents, just because the people who live there use this pre-WWII number for EO33 to their everyday talk. I would suggest to add some signs: "Historic Route 111" (like the American Route 66).

Unfortunately the National Road registry of the Greek Statistical Authority is not available from any official online resource in a document format. However, I had had photographed several pages of the book before I return it. So, I have uploaded the photos for you, here.

Here are two photos and a video of the ongoing preparations of the new Klokova tunnel in the A5 motorway "Ionia Odos".

According to the decisions of previous Greek government A25 for Promahonas to Serres will be paid (with toll cabines) from 01.04.2015. http://www.grreporter.info/en/tolls_..._highway/11989
But the connection of the motorway from the interchange Nea Petritsi to the old highway to Serres is not ready yet.
Will be soon ready or we have to pay for the service "motorway" without possibility to use it?

A video of the newly opened Agia Marina-Raches section. This used to be a very dangerous part of the Greek road network, hopefully it is replaced by this nice motorway.

PS. The video is not mine, however I would recommend to turn the volume lower of even off as the music is horrible.

Thanks . The video was taken on 19th. Both carriageways are in service. When has the 2nd carriageway been opened? On 17th, 18th or 19th?

In addition, I found a news article with an outlook about the A1 section between Skotina and Evangelismo (~30km). It says, the section will probably be completed by Mid 2016 (instead of August 2015).
OSM already shows the 6km section between Aegani and Pyrget˛s in service. Is that correct? Is there any info when the two carriageways got in service?

The second carrriageway was opened on the 19th as far as I know.

The final part of A1 (the tunnels of Tempi/Platamonas) are now scheduled to be opened by the end of the first quarter of 2016, but most probably by mid 2016.

I don't think that the part that you mention is open, however this is just my assumption as I don't have any information about that (news, etc.).

This small part of upgraded highway (~6km) is in service more than 15 years now.
It was constructed in late 1990's together with several other section of A1 northern part like Larisa bypass, Skotina - Katerini etc.)

Is this the part that stretches between the Tempi Valley and Platamonas?

Yes, my mistake - this part is in operation for many years.
