No unfortunately, not yet. The largest missing part is between Grevena and Metsovo (~60 km). After Metsovo, the highway is interrupted 3 times, where bridge or tunnel is still under construction.

The whole part of A2 between Igoumenitsa and Thessaloniki is supposed to be completed till the end of the year 2008.

On this map you can see the situation (black=finished part, green=part under construction):

I think I will miss some sections of the travel from Thessaloniki to Athens. Those sections had no highways, so you had to move to the coast or pass some village. Now you will get to the village or coast only when you get down from the highway. I know, that it will be safe to stay on the highway, but you will miss some amazing views, which are worth to see.

do you mean the new aghios constantinos bypass highway, and the old coastal road from inside aghios constantinos? if yes, then i have to say that the new by pass is much better, not only coz its a highway but also because you have a great view of the village through the highway and i also enjoy the tunnels and its much much faster and safer...
i'll be back with photos later today

Presumably no warning was issued to the driver so he failed passing the e-pass gate.
I have seen what happened to it on Attiki Odos. The taxi driver had no credit and instead of displaying OK on the gate, it gave another message.
The boom-gate opened and let the car through but probably the owner of the car received a bill in the mail some time later

if we are talking about funny situations with tele-tolling - my friend was carrying an tolling-applicator to his friend, and he had one for himself in his car, too. when he came to ramp, he heard "beep", but he heard another "beep" too because system recognized both applicators

@Chriszwolle.

Sofia Signed is only on one place outside Serres in direction Border.And one before close to Serres on National Road.
This here is after the city Serres.

http://i356.photobucket.com/albums/o...74/Foto301.jpg

On the old Signed stand Promachonas along the Road.This is the last little city on Border with Bulgaria.
The Complete Motorway is still U/C.I think when is Ready the Signed with Sofia comes along the Road.
On A-2 Behind Thessaloniki, before the Interchange to Serres and Promachachonas on the Signed stand BG.
Please dond ask why the new signed stand YU? i dont know.
