Yes, but section Filipiada - Ioanina will be closed for next five day. Reason for that is finishing works on bridge Kryfovo and connection between Ionia and Egnatia...

Here is the new section a few days before it was opened to traffic:



There is really nothing spectacular in that section. The southernmost section, between Klokova tunnels and Rion-Antirrion bridge, is much more interesting:

Does anyone know how it is numbered? It is the extension of A24, is it also signed A24?

The decree of 2015 strictly defines as A24 only the section Efkarpia I/C - Moudania I/C.

The stretch of road past Moudania I/C, is not part of the Thessaloniki - Moudania primary route (Ethniki Odos/National Road), therefore it lacks an official designation. It is just a provincial road with advance characteristics.

I think it's probably not designated as motorway by purpose, as it's the only overland connection to Kassandra peninsula and it has to remain open also to non-motorway traffic.

That is a valid observation.
This road is the only way over Nea Potidea canal.

A few photos of the works on upgrading the National Road 90 into a motorway (2 x 2 + hard shoulder), in the island of Crete.
The section has a total length of 9,1 kilometres and runs from Gournes I/C upto Chersonesos I/C.

Will the joint of A3 & A2 be at Kalithea or a bit north closer to Grevena? Thanks in advance.

That's fine but let a local Greek confirm it.

Roaddor the alignment shown in OSM is the initial one and it should not be taken as final.
Still things aren't clear. This is due to the fact that there are three different alignments (including the initial one) being considered at the moment.
In the following map (click for larger view) you may see all three alignments - cyan, red and pink, with the red one being the most likely to be chosen. The A2 motorway “Egnatia Odos” is depicted with purple colour. If you pay close attention, you will even see a sub-alignment for a short stretch of the red alignment (orange coded).




Bonus, the cross-section of the carriageways:

Timelapse of a trip from Parga to Athens using Egnatia, Ionia odos in its entity as well as the Olympia Odos and Rio Antirio bridge crossing. Hope you Enjoy

Ευχαριστώ πολύ Σταύρο . So the probability for А3 motorway to connect with А2 is around Kipourio. I just thought if one was travelling from Volos to Igoumenitsa or making a transfer in general from A1 to A5 through the so called A4 highway, then there would be a small shift to the north with the red alignment. Probably the terrain is more difficult and requires additional tunnels or there are protected areas regarding the path of the cyan alignment.

I am also interested in the design of the Rio supernode. Are there any renders available how it will look like? I tried to find some pictures online but couldn't get any.

A recent video of A27 (E-65), from Florina's interchange to - Niki (Greek/FYROM customs).
This section of the motorway opened to traffic in May of 2016.

Ionia odos

Latest presentation of Ionia odos by the builder:





Drove a section of it last month on my way to Lefkada from Athens and it was super boring - Best compliment I could give!!! I even used cruise control for the first time
