Thank for pointing this out - I hadn't noticed it.

I thought they stopped the works on Xiniada - Lamia because of money long ago. Didn't read about restarting them, so I thought it's not under construction.

What you see on Google Maps there is the track for the highspeed railway

You are right. The works for the motorway are a bit more to the east. Here and here.

Anyhow, even if it is given to public use within this week, it will not be the entire artery.
The works past the Artemida I/C (37.053164, 22.117759) are not done, yet.

This is Othrys mountain tunnel. It has been left like that since 2012/2013.
Currently, no works are taking place there.

I am glad to be able to drive soon from Croatia (Split, Dalmatia) to Patras and further.
Are these openings of the Ionia Odos correct:
Amfilochia – Kouvaras 26km - end of 2016
Ioannina (A2) – Filippiada 50km - end of 2016
Kefalovryso – Antirrio 43km - March 2017
Sellades – Amfilochia 27km - March 2017
Sellades-Arta already existed (Arta by-pass)
Someone wrote about the section Filippiada-Avgo opening. But that's not part of the A5, Perheps Arta-Filippiada? please explain what you mean.

Avgo is a village near the city of Ioannina. To be more precise, it is located south of the city, about 45-50 kilometres north of Arta. The settlement that you found (which is also named Avgo) is another village, which as you can see, in south of Arta, on the coast of the Ambracian Gulf, and is completely irrelevant to the currrent project.

Hello Seagull,

In regard to your questions about A5 motorway, the sections which most probably will be given to traffic, within the present year, are the following:
Kouvaras (38.699538, 21.215160) - Amfilochia (38.905979, 21.183224)
Filippiada (39.201983, 20.903271) - Avgo (39.508128, 20.889131)

The remaining sections that will be inaugurated in 2017:
Kefalovryso (38.456696, 21.365774) - Antirrio (38.340398, 21.761683) [I am not sure if Klokova tunnel (38.354428, 21.666608) will be included]
Sellades/Kompoti (39.113101, 21.055507) - Amfilochia (38.905979, 21.183224)
Avgo (39.508128, 20.889131) - I/C with A2 (39.588334, 20.817238)


Exact dates, are unknown.

For another week gone tradition of regional Kalamata motorway until junction of Artemis
...
Although the peripheral is ready since last Tuesday and could be delivered, remains closed and waiting for the political leadership
...
That is why no one can say with certainty that the delivery will take place the first weekend of November, next Tuesday or Wednesday or will be delayed even more.
Is there any news when the unfinished segment east of Artemida I/C is expected to be opened?

No MichiH, there is no news regarding the section east of Artemida I/C.

As for the already constructed section, there is no specific date for its public release, neither. The reason for this stupid delay is related to the imminent cabinet reshuffle of the central government. They are not sure who should cut the ribbon. The existing minister of public works, or the new one...

According to www.ypodomes.com Kalamata's bypass will most likely be inaugurated on November 19.
Its seems that they postponed the ceremony in order to be able to to finish the entire section that has motorway characteristics. Therefore, the section that will be given to traffic starts where the A7 currently ends and finishes at the roundabout (37.045636, 22.126324) that will be connecting the bypass (A7) with the National Road 82 (Sparta - Kalamata).

UPDATE: On November 19, solely the section Thouria I/C (37.072292, 22.047129) - Artemida I/C (37.053164, 22.117759) was given to traffic.

Here as some recent photos past the Artemida I/C.
