The Greek primary road network has just got a bit longer.

Yesterday, motorway A5 was connected with the Rio-Antirio bridge. The section stretches from Antirio to Klokova tunnel and has total length of 6,5 km.



Today, two new sections were inaugurated.
  1. The first is the section that concludes the construction of motorway A25 (41.104032, 23.453924). It is a 5-kilometer section between Lefkonas and Kato Christos interchanges. Now, A25 can be regarded as being completed; however, not all sections are of the same characteristics. Specifically, there are still 17 kilometers of dual carriageway that are in need for upgrades.
  2. The second, is a 4,2-kilometer dual carriageway expressway, located in Chalkidiki peninsula (40.230464, 23.309483). It begins at Moudania I/C and ends prior to Nea Poteidaia's canal bridge.

Of which, Christos-Sidirokastro is in a disastrous condition.

I know.
I believe that Egnatia Odos will, at least, resurface it.

- AEGEK S.A
- TERNA
- ATTI-KAT S.A.

This road is still a construction site, despite the inauguration by the Prime Minister.

When are these works expected to finish taking into account that the traffic should run simultaneously, mid August?

Btw, i have a question to my compatriots here, i am reading this article (http://www.agrinioculture.gr/2017/06...toloakarnania/) and it says that since 2007 there is plan to connect Platygiali in the area of Astacos to Ionia Odos but only the section Platygiali - Agios Demetrios is constructe.

For those outside the country who are not familiar with the area here is some info:

Astacos



The commercial port (Akarport) in Platygiali, its the white area



and here some nice photos













http://www.liaromatis.gr/index.php/e...gr/265-astakos









http://www.akarport.gr/default.asp?V_DOC_ID=2104

===============================================

My question is, where is Agios Demetrios? I am searching and i can't find him on the map.

Beautiful scenery. I learned recently there would be a ferry from the town of Astakos to the Ionian islands Ithaka and Kefalonia . Can't wait till September to make a whole trip in Greece and test the new highways.

The article is misleading.
So far, two sections of the artery have been constructed. These are:
- Kefalovriso – Gouria, includes the Ag. Ilias tunnel
- Ag. Dimitrios – Platygiali

The remaining works are:
The interchange of this road with Ionia Odos (A5)
And the middle section, Gouria – Ag. Dimitrios, which includes a large bridge over Achelous river.


Ag. Dimitrios is a chapel, in these coordinates: 38.487086, 21.192057

Construction of interchange and connection (~300m) are part of the technical part of Ionia Odos concession.
Earthworks started around January, progress is very good and it will be delivered to traffic in the next months.

This map is not about future toll stations but for the existing ones.

and here's the map of the road.

I don't think it is correct to pay at a toll station which is within the section, one actually is charged for. Besides, I guess the Inner Ring Road of the city will be loaded even more (from transit traffic) if the TS Thessaloniki is really built. Egnatia Odos by the way plays there the role of a northern bypass of Thessaloniki.

what's with all those toll stations?
that's the point other than discouraging people to use motorways??

for heavens why don't you implement a closed toll system (like the ones in croatia, serbia,..)?

this way, if I have to stop every 40km, I might as well take the old roads..

It is a rather complex situation that has been created by the agreements on motorway construction and maintenance as well as the EU-IMF ‘patronisation’ of the Greek Economy since 2010. The latter regards Egnatia Odos (A2 and branches), which is owned by the State.

For the moment, the Government insists that a new system based on electronic means and/or GSM systems will be applied in 2018. They will try to implement the system earlier in some sections near the cities and other principal towns for vehicles that possess an e-pass transponder. However, there might be objections from the EU-IMF authorities. Let’s wait!

[Of course, the current system is simply ridiculous].
