I think 2016 openings are done now

Is there any updated info about the estimated opening dates of the following motorway and expressway sections?

There is a tunnel in the video but I assume this is not the Klokova tunnel because it comes somewhere in the middle. What is the actual status of the Klokova tubes and do you expect the whole stretch between A2 and the Rio bridge will be finished by autumn 2017?

The tunnel that you saw is named "Kalidona Tunnel" and is ~900 m long.

As of the Klokova tunnels, both tubes have been excavated. Now, the contractors are in the process of paving and installing the necessary traffic safety equipment. The tunnels are expected to be operational by the end of March 2017.

The A52 is not going to open in 2017, it is far behind schedule and it is going to be completed by 2020 the earliest...

Only a 5 kilometers stretch, between Provatas and Kato Christos villages, needs to be finished in order for A25 to be entirely done. It should be ready by March 2017, as mentioned above.

Kato Christos to Sidirokastro is in a desolate condition, are there any plans for a reconstruction?

Hi, I am interested whether the red line below is the approved planned route of the new connection between Greece and Bulgaria, particularly in the section Dimario - GR/BG border. Is it already clear about the eventual tunnels there? And also will the bypass of Xanthi be to the west of the city?

According to this, a short 3 km stretch has been included and will be financed by the “Partnership Agreement for the Development Framework 2014-2020”.
This is a sub-section of the 8 km section "Dimario - GR/BG border" and includes 4 bridges and a tunnel. The road surface will have a width of 7,5 m/10,5 m. Completion is expected by the end of 2020.

I suppose this motorway might lead to Plovdiv in the far future. But schould'nt the connection komotini- dimitrovgrad have priority? There the bulgarian side has also plans of improvement.

This is not a motorway, it's just a National road

Thanks. The width, however, should not be spared because heavy traffic vehicles are also supposed to run one day along the road with the final goal of connecting Kavala and Plovdiv.

Dimitrovgrad-Komotini is indeed the primary road (part of former pan-European corridor IX) in central Bulgaria and Northeastern Greece towards the ports of Alexpoli and Kavala. There are plans for Dimitrovgrad-Makaza (border point) to become an expressway or at least a single carriageway with four lanes. The first step will be to build the bypass of Kardzhali and to broaden the BCP (a precondiiton for the heavy traffic). The road across the lower Rhodope mountains also has another important purpose except the link towards Ruse on Danube, namely to connect through the shortest path Varna on the Black Sea and Thessaloniki on the Aegian Sea.

My understanding is that the road will be having similar characteristics with that of Komotini - Nimfea - GR/BG borders.

Mentioning this connection, when do you expect to compelte the final four-five kilometers of the new road to the I/C Komotini East on A2?

I am surprised how Greece has managed to build so many new motorways, especially going through crisis. Very well done. Does Greece has more motorways than Spain in terms of land area?

I don't have statistics about mileage vs land area right at hand, but Greece has only some 1,800 kilometers of motorway (vs 15,400 kilometers in Spain) and A1 and A2 make up two-thirds (600 + 670 km) of the motorway mileage in Greece. And A1 is still not entirely a motorway.
