In the final shape of the A8 in this area, new sector will service only direction Patra -> Athens.
Direction Athens ->Patra will be serviced by existing national road, which will be upgraded to one way highway.

There will be an interim period, that both directions will be temporary moved to the new sector in order to upgrade existing road.
Therefore, that bridge will be demolished and a new one will be constructed in the same place.

Also in the second video, we can see construction works of the new high-speed rail line affecting in several point old national road and not A8 highway in Aigialia area.

A recent video of the new A71 motorway "Lefktro - Sparti".


It will most likely be given to traffic on April 18th.

The A71 highway "Leuktro-Sparti" is delivered earlier today into traffic (46 Km). A71 is the only branch of A7 Korinthos - Kalamata highway.

Some photos from a local news portal







This is the first section delivered after construction restart on the extended highway project across Greece.
Last deadline for all project is March 2017. So we hope that during following months several sections will be finally delivered after almost 10 years since contract's signature.

Now, a series of new photos of Kalamata's bypass from Engineer (stadia.gr forum member). The photos were taken on April 16.

Taken from the overpass, near Kalamata's general hospital:

This is where the new bypass and National Road 82 (Sparta - Pylos) will meet. A roundabout will be constructed there:

The pics does not look like the bypass will be opened for traffic in August. Is August the "official" deadline of the contract or just an announcement of politicians? Is there any reliable estimated opening date? Maybe late 2016 or 2017?

At the opening day of the A71 the Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks announced that the Kalamata bypass will open by the end of September 2016. He also stated that a new road connecting the A7 with Megalopoli and the relevant interchange will be open early in July.

A25: Kato Christos – Strymoniko ~21km (? to 2016) – projectmap

Is there any info about the completion of the last A25 u/c section? It's displayed "opened" on OSM now...

According to the Greek press there is a process to tender that section again. It seems that it is agreed that it will open by the 30th of November 2016.

What is the current status of the EO8A / A8 conversion? There is Google Earth imagery dated 9 January 2016 that shows the Korinthos - Kiato toll gate segment basically entirely paved, but not yet marked. Works look less advanced beyond the toll gate.

Satellite imagery beyond Kiato is older (August 2015 at the newest, but partially from February 2014).

First of all, I would like to thank you for the aerial photos.


Second, by seeing the this photo, I would like to take the opportunity and note the adjustments in the design of the road at Sparta's interchange and at the end of the motorway itself. I wonder when and why they decided to make these changes.

I think that when this is totally ready, they will have to close the old carriageway for repavement and other works. The whole Korinthos - Kiato section was expected to open by late summer or early autumn, but there is some optimism that it may open a bit earlier. The Kiato - Xylokastro section may be open by the end of 2016.

From various sources it seems that news from A5 (Ionia Odos) are quite encouraging.

Section Kouvaras I/C (end of already constructed highway Agrinio bypass) - Amfilochia I/C, around 26km, will be delivered sometime this Summer.
This section is a very crucial as it will bypass city of Amfilochia where huge traffic jams occurs in vacation period.
A recent video from this section


Also northern part of A5 (Filippiada - Ioannina 49km) might be delivered to traffic before the end of year as the General Secretary of Infrasructure Ministry mentioned during a visit on site some weeks ago.

Filippiada interchange


Somewhere between Arta - Ioannina


Gorgomilos bridge



All photos are from an amateur group in facebook

Is there any updated map that shows all the highway sections that are opened and those under construction?

OSM shows everything you need, but there is some kind of optimism in it.........as aforementioned, an A25 unfinished segment is shown as open, the same happening in A27 Florina-Niki. However, checking it out will be fine
