There will be 4 twin-tube tunnels, one single-tube tunnel and a lane cover.
From north to south:
  1. Ampelia tunnel 950 m
  2. Skamnia tunnel 200 m (Arta bypass)
  3. Kalidona tunnel 1200 m
  4. Lane cover 100 m
  5. Klokova tunnel 2900 m
  6. Makinia tunnel 550 m

PS: All tunnels are easily visible via Google Maps/Earth.

No intention to widen A1 north of Thessaloniki? All other parts of Belgrade-Athens motorway will be ready this year.

Completely no intention and also no money (this segment does not belong to a consortium) and no sufficient AADT (even if the road carries the traffic from Europe to Greece and Evzoni are Greece's primary port of entry)

It is section Kampi - Perdika, replacing one of the deadliest section of national road Arta - Ioannina.
I did that section a few days ago, you can take a look at this .gpx file until Google Earth incorporates it. I entered the A5 in Filippiada and exited at Sklivani.

(excuse the accuracy, it was done with an old Garmin GPS 60 device)

Is there any estimated opening date for the sections which were announced to be opened anytime now?

If I'm not mistaken, the 2nd carriageway of A8 and A29 have not yet been opened, have they?

To my knowledge: the entire A1 will be ready before the end of March.

A8: all parts will be ready before the end of March/beginning of April, expect for approx. 9km and the interchange at Rio.

A recent video of Klokova tunnel (2,9 km), in A5 motorway.
It seems that the tunnel is almost ready. It is too bad that it will not be given to traffic along with the rest of the section, Kefalovriso - Gavrolimni, by the end of March.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tour of the section Kefalovriso - Gavrolimni, which will be given to traffic by the end of March.

Watching the video, I noticed two disappointing things:
  1. The chainage markers do not have a cardinal direction indicator, a practice that Attiki Odos S.A. started, and gradually other motorway concessioners adopted.
  2. The numbering of A5's interchanges starts at the first interchange past the Rio-Antirio bridge. However, the A5 motorway does not begin at its interchange with A8. It continues southwest of Patra, towards the towns of Amaliada, Pyrgos, Zacharo and ends at an area called Tsakona, where it intersects A7.

I hoped that after the privatisation of our motorways, the signage would be dramatically improved and all concessioners will be faithfully following the signage specifications of 2011. Instead, it seems that each motorway concessioner follows its own guidelines and practices, without regard to established signage specifications and other good practices.

In order to support the above statement, just let me remind three 'general' points that the 2011 specifications state:

1. Normal advance direction signs (not those on gantries) for the direction ahead should show the name of the next exit/interchange as in Germany and not the main destination. For me this is a stupidity due to the 99% copy-paste from the German specifications as it might confuse at least most Greek drivers who are not accustomed to this. In practice, some motorways have such signs both with the main destination and the next exit/interchange, some show only the main destination and NONE follows the official specifications.

2. One of the few things that was not copied by the Germans was the rule to number exits/interchanges by the km post and not sequentially. Again for me, it seems that the sequential system is better - it is easier to follow exits ...51, 52, 53... than... 435, 448, 461... Smaller numbers and simple numerical sequence. In practice, ALL motorways number them sequentially. And each motorway company tends to care only for their 'shop'.

3. Six years since the last issue of the specifications and more than ten since it was stated to use the prefix 'A' on motorway numbering shields, still most signs on the A1 indicate 1 and the same applies to ALL signs on the A6, A62, A64, A65 and A642 that indicate 6, 62, 64, 65, 642. And no need to mention that in 2015 the latter were allocated with new numbers (A6, A64, A62, 'lost'(!), A621 respectively).

Regarding A5, it means that new approx. 30km will be put into service end of this month. Another 10km, in them the pretty much completed Klokova tunnel, will follow sometime afterwards when the open-air section from the western gate of the tunnel gets finished. And then there are just another 5 or 6 km more from the eastern gate this time of the tunnel to Antirio.
When do you expect both sections to be ready, is mid May feasible?

Are there currently any construction works on A27 (upgrade to motorway south of Florina towards Ptolemaida)?

At this moment no construction works on A27 are in place.
And there is no plan for any in the short future.

The medium part Ptolemaida -Florina is on design phase to upgrade it in highway but honestly speaking there is no chance to see any construction as existing national road is in a very good shape and covers current traffic needs.
