Nice. There aren't so many sub-sea tunnels. We have one, but the deepest is in Norway i thought.

Ye in Larissa, between Larissa junction 2 and 3, yes there are tolls located, don't know the distances though, but i ve heard that they are gonna change the tolls locations, prolly they ll place less on old motorways and more in new or something.

The last sunday i was in thessaloniki, so i took a lot of pics while travelling, i ll start posting them, they arent that great cause the weather was really bad but quite descent i hope.

Some 20 mins after we left the town and in the pathe motorway:

On tembi tolls, the part from here isnt a motorway but just a 2 lanes road, it is supposed to be u/c soon, with tunnels crossing the tembi valley, which now is a really dangerous road due to the heavy truck traffic.

Again pretty, but dangerous, i ve been always afraid of this turn, and as you can see by the divider a lot of cars prefer the straight road :!

That would be even cheaper, BP is always 10 cents above the average price, never understand why

Entrance to the tunnel of Katerini, a tunnel that was made in order for the highway not to pass through the city.

Inside the tunnel

And near the tunnel exit

Some km after the tunnel, this is a part constructed around 1991, and instead of concrete divider has a metal one, though the two directions are some 20m away from each other.

Thats all for now, i got owned by my camera's battery after that

This road is really good build (2x3 lanes) for the amount of traffic!

Why do you drive the middle lane all the time? The right lane is free too...
