Now only the Chalastra - Polykastro part and a at-grade junction north of Evzoni remains. What are the plans and estimates for these two?

Great day for northern Greece today.
The Tempi & Planatomas tunnels (A1 motorway) have been inaugurated by the Greek PM Mr. Tsipras.
The 25 km section of A1 having the three tunnels, will be given to public use tomorrow morning.















All photos are taken from here: http://www.lifo.gr/now/greece/140080

And a short video:

A ride on the entire new section of A1:



For a comparison, here is what the old road through Tempi valley looks like:

Is this some sort of tunnel-opening ritual??

It is a tradition that, during an inauguration of a new building, business or public works, a short sanctification or blessing ceremony to take place.
Essentially, a priest uses holy water in order to bless the new establishment and ward-off evil demons and such.

I hope it makes sense.

It seems there is a bit more work for the small section towards Antirrio.

Is Andravida-Kyllini completed as 2x2 road nowadays? Of course with the idea to reach faster Zakynthos.

Strange, when one zooms in enough using either Google Earth or wikimapia, it is visible that this road is to a big extent a single carriageway with 4 lanes.

Upgrade of the road connecting Kyllini port with national road Patra -Pyrgou (Close to Andravida) has been completed in full length.
It is now a 2x2 road without any median barrier.

Yesterday, drivers who came back from Easter holidays had an unpleasant surprise on A5. At the point where the new section ends, near Klokova tunnels, there was a huge traffic jam:
