They built it really fast, I was surprised. It is almost complete, just barriers, new jerseys and similar stuff and it is ready for traffic.

Nice photos, but your highways are always 2X2 lanes? How often your highways are 3 lanes?

According to this map it's A44. But A11 as a spur from A1 does make more sense. That map seems to be outdated, the Greek system has been changed since. The spurs off A2 towards Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria are all numbered A2x.

A121? That's the first time I have heard of this number. It can't be a spur of A12, right? (there is no A12)

this map shows the following road as A15, but it's signed as A27 in reality.

A121: The number has been taken from a Ministry of Public Works motorway numbering scheme published back in January. Although 2-digit numbers originate from 1-digit ones (with the exception of the A90 which is in Crete and has nothing to do with A9), it seems there is a strange allocation of 3-digit numbers. A12x have been designated around Thessaloniki (although they are spurs of the A2) and there is an A111 designation for Patra (off the A9). Only an A141 near Larisa is a spur of the A1.

But we have discussed the strange things about the messy road numbering in Greece.

Please note that the map on the pdf file with the Ministry decision is not clear; numbers cannot be seen clearly and anyway we have to wait for the official signing (if they manage to put signs right).
