The problem with the unfinished section is that it has produced numerous and deadly road accidents over the years. It has been considered as the most dangerous road stretch in Greece along with area around Tempi Valley further to the north and the Korinthos to Patra and Patra to Pyrgos 'new' national roads.

I think it would be best if those roads were 2+1 with separation instead, like in Sweden.

I don't think it's wasted money. It makes the freeway less of a barrier between neighborhoods. Bringing it under the ground alltogether is way too expensive, and this is a nice solution. However, I prefer a park on top of it.

Are those toll booths? Isn't this a waste of money?

We had a small discussion about TEO pass in other thread. Now the website of teo pass gr works and I have checked everything. But I have one question about that. You buy yourself some card and you are passing the toll stations without stopping.

Do you need to count down every pass from your credit on card? And if you don't count well - you will approach the toll station and the gates won't open? Is it like that? Or you have some digital board in the station, which tells you your credit?

How the hell you saw them i was searching a couple of minutes to see them verso anyway my guess would be no they are not tolls, most likely some control center or customs because its near the borders.

Are you talking about toll booths on the road from Thessaloniki to Skopje? If so, I can tell you they are indeed toll booths, but they are totally abandoned and not maintained. Quite ugly viewed from the highway.

How many buildings had been demolished and how many people had been relocated because of the construction of the attiki odos?

Attiki Odos

Regarding the question about demolitions and relocations due to Attiki Odos, there was not a major problem as the route within the urban area of Greater Athens had been identified since the mid-1950's, while long stretches of Attiki Odos (A6) and the connecting motorways (A62, A64, A65 & A642) were outside the main urban areas. Of course there was a lot of land expropriation especially in the Mesogeia area (near the Airport which was also built on expropriated land), but this was agricultural land and not built areas.

Surely there may have been some cases of demolished buildings but as these things get great publicity in Greece it should have been widely known if the number was significant. The main opposition came from mayors of the Metropolitan District Councils along the route of the Ymittos Ring (A64), but this referred to the damage caused to the forest surrounding their municipalities.

I thought there was an enormous demolition...

on the maps.live.com you can see Athens in 3 DIFFERENT TIME:

on ROAD layer you can see streets that looks like maze... there is no motorway yet...
and I cant see a free corridor for a 2x3+railway corridor...

on ARIAL layer you can see the attiko odos just under construction...

and on the BIRDSEYE view you can see the opened motorway from a birds eye view
