Yes, you are right.
All three tunnels will be having two main lanes, each 3,75 m wide and an emergency lane 2,5 m wide.

Any news about the 25km A5 section? I found a news article from 16th August. If I got it right (Google Translate), a 4.5km section was opened in August and the entire 195km A5 will be opened by the end of 2016? Is it correct that 4.5km are already opened and Where is the section? The entire A5 will not be opened in 2016. Maybe they've mistaken it with the 25km section?

The opening date of the section is unknown, but as of current, signage and other works (connection with other roads, lighting) are done.....as far as this 4,5 km section is concerned, it is located near Kefalovryso, just before the beginning of the existing Agrinio bypass section....the recently opened section you are writing about is the section of the old road, which was moved to make room for the Antirrio-Ioannina carriageway, which is, by the way, mostly completed......the A5 in whole is scheduled to open by March 2017 (the progress is about 82,17% and the fully operational road should be opened by August 2017, otherwise Greece will have to pay the EU funds back, which is completely unwanted), however some sections that near completition will be opened earlier (among them the Kouvaras-Amfilochia, the Gavrolimni-Kefalovryso and the Filippiada-Avgo (just outside Ioannina) sections).....in conclusion, it was reported that the last expropriation problems have finally been solved, thus making construction much easier.

Three days ago, the first section, Ancient Corinth - Kiato, of A8 was given to public use -officially-.
Here is a video from the concessionaire, Olympia Odos SA.



Here, the Prime Minister, inaugurates the new road and gives it to the general public, by cutting the ribbon.


Please, pay attention to the traffic sign in the back.
They have it facing towards the tunnel (against the traffic flow), so the cameras can capture it!

I thought it's already in service for one month?

A video captured on 16/8/2016.

Another video of motorway A5 "Ionia Odos".



It covers the section north of Amfilochia up to Kompoti.
The Menidi viaduct that you see around 2:25 is located here.



@ MichiH

I have updated my previous post, so it clarifies the situation.

The whole motorway up to Rio is under construction, no segments are finished yet.....there are rumors, however, that 15 km of the Kiato-Xylokastro segment will be finished later this year....

There were some talks that the tunnels segment at Derveni would be completed soon (they mentioned August).

Tunnels in Derveni are the same case as Akrata tunnels delivered in traffic somewhere in May.
They have been delivered into traffic but the highway in the area cannot be considered as completed.
Tunnels delivery (serving direction to Athens) was a prerequisite for the completion of construction works on the area where highway (direction to Patra) will be reconstructed.

In the greek sub-forum, an aerial video from local news portal Aixmi has been published with the impressive progress of A5 Ionia Odos in section Kalavrouza toll stations (after Klokova tunnels) - Kefalovryso (connection with existing Agrinio Bypass).

Estimated delivery before end of this year

Let's be honest.....i don't expect that opening will happen in the end of the year......i really want to see that, however it seems a little hard (it's Greece, that's why)
