Well the bridge of Chalhida its only 1x1, as you can see in the photo; there is no space to "built" a second lane in each direction


and also i dont know if there is a plan to built a new bridge, to connect Evia island

Few photos from Athens-Lamia motorway includes Schimatari-Chalkida section:

What's the current status of the Αυτοκινητόδρομος 3 (A3) from Lamia to Grevena? I read on the German wikipedia that construction began in 2007, so you'd think they would've accomplished something by now.

Construction hasn't yet started because they're still on the stage of conducting geological measurements and drawing plans of the course the road will have. There isn't any official news about this project, yet. I think it is postponed in order for other (more important) works to be constructed. But, who knows?

The construction of this motorway its very slow; in most parts are indeed in that first stage, like @Arxitektonas said. However, from my last trip to Trikala, passing by Lamia, one small section of that road was in the stage of road construction

The final decision for the A9/E55 routing in the region of the Natura protected area of Kaïafas Lagoon will be taken by the end of November,

The EU Comission has already warned Greece to avoid building a motorway through the area; this warning has been seen as a first step before considering further legal action. The Greek government has been sizing up three possible ways for the case:

1. To narrow down the motorway for a 500m long stretch that will run on the section of the existing national road 9 (1 wide lane in each direction) as traffic volumes do not seem to be so high in order to create frequent bottlenecks in the area.
2. To redraw the route further inland (to the east); it seems an expensive solution as a lot of tunnels may be needed.
3. To connect the A9 with the A7 in the area of Tripoli from Pyrgos via Olympia and Vytina (parallel to national road 74). It seems to be another expensive solution as most of the route will have to run on mountainous terrain, so a lot of tunnels and viaducts will be needed.

PS. The new government is also reconsidering the construction of new motorways in the region of Attiki (around Athens - shown in post #662).

Well, since a leftist government was elected, that doesn't surprise me at all.

A leftish government? Once upon a time maybe, not any more. I'm afraid there's not a significant difference nowadays between socialists and conservatives. Maybe the contructor will be different, but that's where the changes stop...

Ah the future A8. I see some real vintage signs, I believe this road was one of the first main roads in Greece and probably on the Peloponnese peninsula.

Many maps already sign this road as a dual carriageway.

The A8 motorway will be a great road indeed, when of course it completed
