From the news in one of the major greek tv channels, they hope to open the road in few days or weeks time (probably after the Easter)

Hello. My next question is : which local petrol station brands do you recommend to a foreign tourist travelling on E-75? Except from paneuropean brands like OMV Shell or BP, I would like to know which national fuel company is trustworthy.
And is the distance between gas stations on the highway standard – ca. 50 kms?

About the National road 1 (E75) at Tempi Valley: officially from the news, will be open at this Thursday and will be closed again at 11 of April (for further constructions)

About your question, Doctor Wu: except of those you said you can also choose Elin or EKO.

Christo since you know more about the current situation of the roads, do you know what is going on with the works in Korinthos-Patra part, because i'll travel to Ioannina for the Easter period and i've heard that because of the works driving is quite difficult and dangerous especially the night time.
Thank you.

Thank you again, christos-greece.
So it seems that the damages are almost fixed, because the road can be open to the traffic for a short time.
Unless someone announces the full opening, I will ask the question again in beginning of June. Keeping the fingers crossed for you Greeks

So the parts in yellow and purple are the completed parts. What needs to be done to the green sections north of Tripoli?

This part was built in the 90's so its the low standar with many sharp turns at some places it even makes a U turn, so now they are 2 section with tunnels and bridges

Check google earth to see how is the road

Hi!

There's this.
Motorway north of Kastoria, together with a new border crossing in Ieropigi (the current one is marked on the map, a few kilometers to the north).
It is part of European corridor VIII!
