Satellite imagery beyond Kiato is older (August 2015 at the newest, but partially from February 2014).
I passed through that road on 29 April and indeed, the Korinthos-Kiato segment looks well advanced, However, some parts of the road seem to be less advanced, especially between Xylokastro and Aigio.

Is there any info about the completion of the last A25 u/c section? It's displayed "opened" on OSM now...
I travelled from Thessaloniki to Bulgaria in March 2016 and I thought that the whole new road from Kato Christos – Strymoniko was u/c. Altough I realised that the section from Provatas to Strymoniko (about 10 km) was fully operating. The rest 11 km are still u/c. Press says completion in 2016.

It is good news Ionian motorway is gaining momentum. I want to ask you if you eventually plan a branch (probably an expressway) from Filippiada to Lefkada?

Nope, a similar branch from Filippiada to Preveza was planned but no funds for its construction are available, so up to now, the only branch is the A52

Thanks Kostas, I understood later about this motorway A52.

Thanks! That means, 10km in service, 11km are expected to be opened by November 2016. Do you (or anyone else) know when the 10km section was opened? If you are not sure about the exact date, I'd minimum like to know whether it was opened in 2015 or 2016.

I guess Tempi tunnel will be the longest road tunnel in Greece.

Thanks, that means:
10km opened in late November 2015.
10km opened in Mid December 2015.
11km are expected to be opened in late 2016.

Google Earth features new imagery dated 18 April 2016 of A25 in northern Greece (as discussed in previous posts).

It shows Strymoniko - Provatas completed and in service. Provatas - Serres is less advanced, the existing EO12 is being expanded into a motorway with earthworks and bridgeworks ongoing. The Serres cutoff is advanced and mostly nearly completed, except for where it joins the existing motorway near Kato Christos (no connection yet) and around a bridge across a creek near Kala Dendra.

Some satellite imagery (north is up unless indicated otherwise).

1. Strymoniko - Provotas: completed and in service.


2. Provotas - Serres: under construction (Provotas bypass is also partially under construction).


3. Serres cutoff; nearly completed.

There is one very interesting planned highway A15 from Lamia to Amfissa passing around Delphi. Even if it is still early to talk about it, this route is going to reach one day Nafpaktos and Rio bridge along the northern coast of the Gulf of Corinth. Having in mind that A3 highway will aready be in service, with an expressway between Nikaia/Larissa and presumably Neo Monastiri or Leontari on A3, the route from Thessaloniki to Patras will be shorter by at least 20km in comparison to the one using A2 and A5. It can be also driven from Thessaloniki to Athens.

Nice. I found it interesting that Kozani - Ptolemaida has many signs indicating the motorway as A3, but A27 signs are also in use.

When was Kozani - Ptolemaida opened to traffic? There is one patch of imagery in Google Earth dating back to 2003 showing the route under construction.

One more example of the mess with numbering of greek roads.

When section Kozani-Ptolemaida was constructed (somewhere around 2000-2006), it is constructed as an upgrade of existing National Road 3.

Until then there was no decision for numbering of highways with another system (where A27 was nominated)

Thats why in the signs of this section number 3 (and not A3) is written.

Until today only a limited number of signs has been replaced with the right A27.

One more video with great aerial views of northern part of A5 Ionia Odos (Filippiada- Giannena) with estimated completion date end of September.
Most views are from Ammotopos-Terovo area

A video of the new tunnels near Akrata, in motorway A8.




I see that the first tunnel has got an emergency lane, whereas the second has not got one. I am not sure why...
