Actually for me in Greece there are 2 big motorways with little vacuum sections.

1) From Promahonas to Kalamata
(Promahonas, Serres, Thessaloniki, Athens, Tripoli, Kalamata)

2) Egnatia Odos
(Igoumenitsa to Alexandroupoli)

White line shows the motorways and the red line the construction motorways.
(Moreas & Ambrakia Odos is stopped for now, but there are in good level construction)

Please be more specific on what you mean by motorway.

The new tolled national roads Athens - Thessaloniki and Athens - Patra (without highway standards) in an almost new route to existing roads was built on 1960s and 1970s.

After 1985 several upgrade to highway standards projects ran on both axis.
As a synopsis:

Athens - Inofyta (early '90s)
Inofyta - Thiva (mid '90s)
Thiva - Yliki - Ag.Konstantinos (late '90s)
Ag. Konstantinos - Lamia (1st part of Maliakos gulf) (~2007/8)
Lamia - Raches (2nd part of Maliakos gulf) (2015)
Raches - Larisa (mid '90s)
Larisa by pass (late '90s)
Larisa - Katerini except from Tempi valley (late '90s)
Tempi valley (under construction)
Katerini -Thessaloni (early '90s)

Athens - Corinth w/o Kakia Skala section (mid '90s)
Kakia Skala section (mid '00s)
Corinth - Patra (under construction)

Also new highway Corinth -Tripoli (now part of A7) delivered on 1992.

The bridge over Maliakos Gulf is not anymore even under consideration.

Ionia Odos - the video shows how the area in Klokova was a year before and how it is now (from 3:48 --> "Εικόνες απο ψηλά ένα χρόνο μετά")

Serres - Drama -Kavala was discussed several years to be built as a full 2x2 motorway (Egnatias vertical highway A22).

Currently, it seems that a more logical and closer to Greek economic conditions proposal is promoted.
Only the edges of the axis (Serres bypass & Kavala - Drama) will be designed with 2x2 motorway standards while the medium part will have upgraded national road standards.

This change is reflected in the last progress map(18/09/2015) of Egnatia Odos in regards to vertical axes.

Progress Map

Since 2013, several final design studies on Serres bypass and the first (& most important) section Kavala-Krinides have been done.
For the rest of the axis, I am not aware of any other design study except from preliminary ones.

I know that this thread is almost exclusively about motorways, but if you really want to enjoy Greek nature, you have to venture into secondary, even dirt roads:



This is (ex) Evrytania prefecture.

Hi guys,

Thessaloniki-Promachonas motorway is supposed to be opened sometime in 2016 according to the plans. Do you have more specific information when the remaining segments are about to be launched and consequently the whole motorway will be ready for use? I mean approx. which month next year. Thanks.

Greetings from Bulgaria

That Tsakonas bridge is not an expensive solution? The gap is not so big and deep for such a big arch bridge. Nice one though
