This is the extension of A5 from Patras to Pyrgos (and further to A7 near Kalamata - see https://goo.gl/maps/1LmGJvNNix72 for the already built interchange there). Construction was started and then stopped at early stage because of the finance crisis.

There were rumors / talks about restarting works in the past years but afaik nothing happened yet.

Seemingly works must restart within 3 years (as far as Pyrgos anyway) of the completion of the Corinth-Patras section and some toll revenue coming in on the Corinth-Patras sections.

Hello, friends! Where is "K16 Thessaloniki"? I spend 20 minutes at Google Maps, OpenStreetMap and Wikimapia without any success!

A8

New Corinth-Patras motorway to open in Greece during March 2017

The new Corinth-Patras motorway will be delivered in March 2017. The project includes 29 interchanges, 29 tunnels of 25.6km, 80 bridges, 242 footbridges and rest areas.

The works will continue after March in four difficult points at Derveni, Arahovitika and Rio interchange. These works will be completed in August, except for the Rio interchange which is estimated to be ready at the end of 2017.
Full report: http://www.tornosnews.gr/en/greek-ne...arch-2017.html

Hello,
Do you know any realistic date for the completion of A5 Ioannina - Filippiada?
I was wondering if it will be finished by August 2017.

The whole section is completed, except for a 3km stretch at the village of Avgo, near Ioannina and 50 meters that were not expropriated and are currently U/C....so the answer is yes

By the way, here are some good news:
The 26 km Kouvaras-Amfilochia segment of the Ionia Odos motorway (Amfilochia bypass), which has been completed since July, will be opened to traffic, thus creating a 60 km motorway stretch and relieving the-usually congested by cars-city of Amfilochia

There were plans to link this I/C with Preveza via a motorway or dual-carriageway expressway. However, due to the financial situation of Greece, it is very unlikely that this will happen in the next 10 years.

Thank you Stavros86, but at this point I think it would be helpful to do a little piece of the bypass, which would be dislocated transit traffic to Preveza and Lefkada and thus increase safety and reduce travel time.

Something like this.

Was the last A7 section opened last week or is there any updated estimated opening date?

Announced to be opened between 27th and 29th December. source.

If I got it right, it's also reported that works on another section might be completed in January / March 2017 (partial opening in January, 2nd opening in March?): I think it's this section:

A5: Kefalovryso – Antirrio 43km (2008 to 2017) – projectmap

AFAIK, the Kouvaras-Amfilochia section will open in December 27 or 29, however there is no official announcement
