Btw, Olympia Odos (Corinth - Patra) says that the overall progress of the project is at 62%

For the end, a very nice aerial photo of Isthmos of Corinth (or Corinth Canal) from the same website:

I was thinking to write a status update for the progress of half of A5 (Antirrio - Menidi a town before Arta), but I found in google maps an amazing photo gallery by Nikos Danilidis, probably a TERNA (main constructor) contractor. Αerial photos frame by frame (21/03/2015) have been uploaded (21/03/2015) of the Kefalovryso-Antirrio section.

Use right arrow for a flight over construction sites in 43km from Kefalovryso to Rio- Antirrio bridge.

Some comments from my side.
- Although the heavy works performed during the last year, it is almost impossible to deliver this part until end of this year due to archaeological findings and delayed expropriation (just 8 years after agreement sign). Just to remind that the official delivery date is still December 2015 (without Klokova tunnel, for which constructions just begin).

- The biggest problem of the new road is the ancient town of Alikyrna, which is found exactly on the route of the new road.
Below image worths 1000 words

Fortunately, another archaeological site (ancient cemetery with 340+ tombs) some km later has been totally excavated by scientist last years and it was decided to remove and relocate the finding next to the road.
https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...62047885542802

- Most of the problems with expropriation are now limited in the Evinos valley and close to Ano Vasiliki village.

https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...61272963485650
https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...60663848967122
https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...60387494440034

- Constructions start on Klokova tunnels is also visible
https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...59561923238002

- There is also a construction gap between Connection of tunnel entrance (from Antirrio) and the new road coming from Antirrio
https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...59425311848530

Now the condition on the other part of A5, Kouvaras (south edge of Agrinio bypass) - Menidi (small town between Amfilochia and Arta) seems to be better on my eyes.
Ground works in section from Kouvaras to Amfilochia seems to be close to completion as now a straight line with no interruption on mountain side is visible.
I was not getting closer but I guess that section Kouvaras - Amfilochia I/C (after town bypass) might be the first section of the road that will be delivered.

Also a surprise for me is the progress on the next section (Amfilochia - Menidi). The new road is not visible from existing road as it passes much East on the top of the hills. I visited a village and I needed to pass the construction site of the new road.
Despite the difficult terrain, heavy machines are working and the new road is already shaped in most sections.

Google earth has years to be updated in those areas.

I don't know the exact progress of the section from Arta to Ioannina. The new road is constructed in an area a little bit isolated and far away from the main towns or villages, so news update are not very common.

Anyway, satellite images from DigitalGlobe is very encouraging.

The first one is from October 2014 and full new section from Filippiada to Egnatia is shown

The second one is a new one (21/03/2015) and only the medium but most important part of the section is shown.
The progress within 5 months is noticeable.

I remember Daniilidis since the era of Attiki Odos with his aerial shots.

Speaking about Attiki Oodos, some very nice photos taken by the SSC member vinterriket. You can find more and equally nice photos in his thread about Peloponnese (Peloponissos).

A novelty that I discovered it this morning!

Google Street View is available in Thassos! Images are captured in October 2014!
They captured the main road around the island, the main p towns and resorts on the road around the island, Panagia, Theologos, Maries!
Enjoy! Good luck documentation and information!

Not sure if this has been posted information!

AFAIK there was not a road before the construction of the Attiki Odos, so there were lots of expropriations.

Minus a small section which connects to the A2. A small detour via the town centre is still required.

I meant this small section which connects A23 with A2. It is marked in Openstreetmaps.

This is the section I'm talking about: https://goo.gl/maps/DoVWt

I supposed that section was closed or something after I've traveled on it last year. It's indeed an older road but decent to travel on it. Maybe now you need to travel trough town....

No, the section you're talking about is existing and open. But it was planned to be temporary bypass until the A23 (the road starting from the Bulgarian border) connects to A2. Now they are not directly connected as the last 5-6 km of the planned A23 are missing. This is the road section in green-white from my image, though it's not existing it is mapped in OpenStreet Maps. So my question is are there any news about those unconstructed 5-6 km of A23?
