With such unjust taxes I think that Greek people pay the highways.

@ MichiH

I have some updates regarding A5.
According to an employee in the construction of the motorway, by the end of March 2017 the following sections will be given to traffic:
32 km: Klokova (38.358278, 21.658586) - Kefalovryso (38.456802, 21.365396)
35 km: Kampi (39.202433, 20.903182) - Perdika (39.495359, 20.888284)

The remaining ~27 km will be given in later time - not specific date provided.

The small 7,7km expressway section Patrida- Naousa of the vertical axis Veroia - Naousa -Skydra was delivered yesterday to traffic after many years of construction due to financial problem of initial constructor



No other part of the axis is currently under construction but some of them are in design phase.
There is a hope that first section Egnatia A2 - Patrida will be included for co-financing in upcoming European partnership agreement (ESPA 2014-2020)

The usual problem with road network classification in Greece.

60+ year ago when national road registry created this road was not classified as national road.
It is provincial road Veroia - Skydra.

In 1998 registry update by another organization for other purposes (Greek Statistical Agency) it is classified as national road 4a

Update: Although the last statement for 1998 update and 4a classification is stated in Greek Wikipedia, I review the original document and this is not mentioned.

So provincial road Veroia - Skydra

Except from Orestiada bypass, rest of axis is designed and almost constructed as a single carriageway 12/14m width with one lane per direction + emergency lane per direction.
But it will contain only interchanges and no ground level junctions

Thanks, I see. As a matter of fact, this is acceptable having in mind that Greece and Bulgaria are also going to open one day the new Echinos-Rudozem road and the existing route through Nymphea-Makaza for the heavy traffic. Both BCPs there will have their own share.

Is the new road numbered?

I suggest to avoid use any number to your work of road projects for the time being.

Unofficially the expressway is considered as a new section of provincial road 5301. However, there are no numbers on signs and the classification needs to be specified by a published decision and also the road needs to get into the database issued by the Directorate of Road Infrastructure (http://www1.okxe.gr/geoserver/eygep/...ion/openlayers). This may take quite a long time, as for the time being they are trying to correct/fill a large amount of problems they have spotted on the previous two editions of their database. The main problem there is that the administrative classification (national, provincial, local roads) does not correspond to the operational one (motorways, expressways, other categories), so you may see motorways numbered as national roads or as expected to get a number. For example you may see the A1 numbered there as EO1, EO1A, NEO1, NEO1A and X379. The other problem is that they do not seem to be so flexible, so that they match the two classifications.

The whole old Veroia - Skydra road has been numbered as 5301 within the Imathia Prefecture and as 5903 within the Pella one. Even the prefixes "53" and "59" are unofficial, and taken by a code for each prefecture issued by the Greek Statistics Authority more than 30 years ago.

According to this post ---->http://epirusgate.blogspot.gr/2017/02/22.html the Kampi - Perdika segment of the Ionia Odos motorway (A5) with a length of 36 kilometres will be opened to traffic in 22 February. This segment, along with the already opened Arta - Filippiada bypass (17 km) will create a 53 km long contiguous motorway and the whole distance to Ioannina will be reduced by 30 minutes.

I might tell that even if you have a reliable source of data, it is not done with following the official designation. Or maybe there might be at least two different ones.

In germany, there are motorways which are designated to be, but not signed as such and the other way around. Sometimes this has pragmatic causes. (Its not useful for routing to change signage for a short strip).

Because of this issues it was a good decision by Michi to categorize his list by technical benchmarks and not by ones of law, designation etc. which is different in each country.

On the other hand a motorway containing U-Turns might be a big project and a big progress for a small or less developed country, but it is not indicated in the list. But of course also in such countries reliable data is hard to obtain, sometimes it is hard enough to get data about motorways not mentioning any lower category.

The problem remains, that one needs to name something (road) in a not to long form which is still easy to understand. "The new alignment of local road XXX between town A and town B which might once get the status of a national road" is way to long :P
