Is there a plan to link A2 (Egnatia Odos) with the island of Corfu?
And if "yes", how would that be? Through a bridge or through an undersea tunnel?
And where? In north, at the narrowmost spot of the strait (would the albanians agree?) Or in south (four times wider the stretch of water...)?

Although I have seen discussion about this in another forum, I doubt that this could be done in the near future. The EU aid money are now diverted to the newer members of the Union, the Greek economy is not at its best and also it seems difficult and economically unprofitable for a contractor to construct the link and claim the toll money as in the cases of other big projects (Athens Airport, motorways etc.).

Mates, I need your help...

I have to create a presentation about the Greek transport infrastructure, but it's hard to find any specific information. Could you tell me what's the approximate length of the Greek national road system (including motorways and national roads of other class)? It's important, since I have no much time to complete the presentation. Thanks in advance for any useful info!

Already looked in there. I found some info about most of the motorways, but there is no info about the full lenght of the national road system (including motorways, 1st class roads, 2nd class roads, etc.).

Do you think there will be one to get you an answer? We are talking about Greece and if you have a look in previous sections of this thread you may understand why

Trying to have a look at Greek sites about your question, I found a guy who was asking the same in a forum after he had made numerous phone calls to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transportation and Networks. Of course, nobody was able to answer and the forum members gave very rough and contrasting estimations!

I think that motorways (fully open to traffic) have a length of around 2,000 to 2,500km, national roads an approximate length of 11,000km and provincial roads have a length of 33,000km. If you add the urban and other local roads the whole network's length is in the region of 200,000km.

You chose a difficult thing for a presentation.

Thanks for the info.

P.S.: If it depended on me, I wouldn't have chosen such a difficult thing for the thesis...

The length of Greek motorways and roads is:
Athens-Lamia-Thessaloniki = 500km
Athens-Korinthos-Kalamata = 210km
Athens-Patra = 223km
Igoumenitsa-Alexandroupoli = almost 600km
Chania-Heraklion-Ag. Nikolaos = almost 190km

I calculated the Greek motorway network to be at 1.797 km back in summer 2009.

A1 --> ~500km (Stylida and Tempi sections missing)
A2 --> ~600km
A5 --> 80km ready
A6/A62/A64/A65/A642 --> ~75km
A7 --> 106km ready
A8 --> 108km ready
A9 --> 20km ready
A11 --> 16km
A25 --> ~120km ready
A27 --> 36km ready
A29 --> 51km ready
A90 --> 180km (length officially designated as motorway - although most of it with single carriageway).

This makes about 1850 to 1900km.

If you talking about the section before the city of Lamia (Athens > Lamia) this part is completed

I mean the section Agia Marina - Stylida - Karavomylos, which bypasses Stylida from the north (mountain). I do not think it is ready yet.
