Olympia Odos: Kiato - Akrata

Although the video is somewhat old (April 9) and the camera was a bit unstable i liked the video. Especially i liked the clear blue sky and the mountains

Haha, you are funny.
No motorway is to be constructed there, for the next 100 years.
Any improvements made, are only small-scale section realignments of the existing primary route 38.
I know that they are currently working on bypassing Kamaroula village, near the city of Agrinio. Also, Karpenissi's bypass has been completed for a couple of years now. Finally, I am not sure whether Makrakomi's bypass is finished or not.

All three improvements are visible in Google Earth.

Alright not a motorway in that sense , probably widening the existing road (one lane per direction with a shoulder) would be enough. This summer Ionia Odos will be ready and such a road through the Pindos there will be a very good link between the vertical axes A5, A1 and even A3 when completed.

Puh, I had a look at N38. There are several mountain crosses with many hairpins. I was there about 20 years ago as child, but I can't remember the region, but it seems very difficult. And I don't think there is so many traffic at all on this route.

Makrakomi's bypass suffered from huge delays in expropriations.
Although majority of technical works were in very good progress 3 years ago, there are 3 small section in which they can't work.

According to local news, all those problems have been resolved and the new road will be delivered to traffic until end of May.

Also the Prefecture authority currently runs a competition for the final studies of section Neochoraki - Tymfristos tunnel, which will replace the most difficult part of EO38 Lamia - Karpenisi.
If funds for construction will be found, it will be a huge improvement in an axis with more than adequate traffic all over the year (especially during vacations).

Also a competition for studies for upgrade of first section from Stavros (intechange with A3 close to Lamia) to Kastri (start of Makrakomi bypass) will be come in the near future according to prefecture's officers.

The whole EO38 Lamia - Karpenisi is correctly not designed as highway but as an advanced "national" road with 1 lane per direction and hard shoulder or 2+1.

On the other side of EO38 between Agrinio - Karpenisi, there is no realistic plan for any extensive improvement due to the mountainous terrain and the low traffic. Only the first section around Agrinio is under construction.

The construction of Lamia-Xyniada is supposed to start later this year according to plans (provided there are no delays). I am interested to know whether there will be a direct link with the current Lamia interchange on A1 towards Volos, as A3 is planned to join A1 with respect to Athens a bit south of Lamia. This is visible on the map below.

Hmm... Your right, there are no ramps to go north... Maybe they forgot something there?

See https://goo.gl/maps/roMLQZ6Cop42

The are no works visible for traffic from and to the north.

I read afterwards there would be an interchange at Komma connecting A3 to EO3 and from there already to A1. So such a link A3-A1 will exist, actually playing the role of a whole southern bypass of Lamia.

The list is OK. The Maliakos Tunnel has been cancelled, as the A1 alignment was decided to follow mainly the trace of the former national road.

Is there a map of the current state of the motorways in Greece? Google Maps are definitely not up to date.

There is one for the whole world and it is called Openstreetmap.

Dashed line = under construction and continous line = open!

You may find a map, showing the current state of Greek motorways, here:
https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...23.4072625&z=6

Green lines -> Motorways
Blue lines -> Expressways
Red lines -> Under construction
Amber lines -> Roads under planning or tender process
Grey lines -> Future roads

Stavros, what happened to the piece near Serres (no info also in ypodomes)? There are no more than 3-4km to be asphalted so that A25 is fully integrated and used.

I know that the section is near completion; however, I have no clue on the specifics of its progress.
