New video from a local news portal E-maitsros with A5 Ionia Odos highway (section I/C Kouvaras - I/C Amfilochia) ~25km.

According to the news portal, estimated delivery date is 10 August due to a minor issue in a short section where complete reconstruction of embankment was required (2:05 in video)

Is A8 highway (Olympia Odos) being constructed with EU funds (TEN-T corridor or core network) or financial provisioning is solely by the national budget?

I hope the following answers your question.


Sources of funding - Resource allocation for the construction period

The total construction cost of the project amounts to EUR 1.487 million and is funded by:
  1. a combination of private funds (bank loans and equity),
  2. European funds,
  3. the contribution of users and the Greek State.

Specifically, during the construction period, the project is funded:
  1. 38% by private funds (29% bank loans-9% equity),
  2. 33% from European Union funds,
  3. 23% from the contribution of users and
  4. 6% by the Greek State.

This screen shot was taken from a presentation that took place a couple of days ago, in Ioannina.



We shall note that:
  1. By March of 2017, the main axis will have been given to traffic.
  2. By the end of August, 2017, all works will be finished.

T1 tunnel in the southernmost section of the axis. Currently, works there have been put on hold. Tunnel's entrances are shielded:


They had to reconstruct the regional road on a new alignment, so the motorway can be built, next to it:

Today was given for public use Megalopoli's I/C and its connector road. Having total length of 2,5 km, this connector directly connects the town of Megalopoli with the A7 motorway.

Portion of New Olympia Odos HWY Opens on Friday

Of the newly expanded sections, the Corinth – Patras section is expected to be completed by March 2017.

Authorities have announced a 20-kilometer section of the highway will be open to motorists traveling from Ancient Corinth to Kiato on Friday.

Construction is expected to accelerate this month as authorities have also announced that they plan on opening the Derveni Tunnel to the public later this month, which is a part of the stretch of highway from Corinth to Patras.

Ah, last April I was saying that it's very unlikely that the road will be finished before the end of 2016 and that just some sections can be opened in 2016. So many people were telling me I'm wrong...

So, now, the official completion date is March 2017 (who bets that this will be delayed again for one or two months?), and a 20 km section is opened in August 2016...

A new video of motorway A8 "Olymbia Odos".
Although the video shows the state the construction progress during last April, it was uploaded just 2 days ago.

It was exaxtly 12 years since the biggest ever construction project in Greece was delivered with a spectacular firework show (even better that 2004 Olympic Opening Ceremony a week later).

Let's remember that day with below video and some photos for Google images

Impressive bridge by all standards. What is the number of vehicles that crossed the bridge on a weekly basis, let's say in the previous month?
The number will further increase once A5 and A8 are brought into service.

No, they needed more time according to media reports last week. It will likely still open in August though.
