Thank you for the information.I found more interesting the use of "ί" rather than "α" and that it is not sth like Καρτζαλι.

Anyway this road in greece(Komotini-BG/GR border)will be really beautiful.Nice job!

This viaduct near Diakofto was constructed in 1969, so it has to be replaced by a new one. Here is how one half of it is demolished:

More problems on the A9/E55 construction between Pyrgos and Kalo Nero (it is the place where at the moment NR9a goes off NR9). The construction of the motorway along the Natura protected area of Ka´afas Lagoon has faced more problems. The whole project in the area is now in doubt even with the proposal of leaving 1+1 lane single carriageway there. There is the option of an eastern bypass but this might be much more expensive as the terrain is difficult.

Some people already think of a new upgraded road or even a motorway that will connect the A9 with the A7 along the traces of either NR74 or NR76 instead of the route paraller to NR9/9a, while some others say that the whole A8/A9 project is in trouble as it has been granted to a private enterprise with the object to build it and run it as well.

The first toll stations at Egnatia odos will be opened in a few days and the cost will be 2.80 euros. Minister of infrastracture announced as of 2011 Egnatia odos will use Vignette system and in 2013 all toll station will be electronic.
Today Mr Reppas announced a package 11 bilion euros which already 7.4 are "locked" such as the attiki odos extension, the new airport at Crete and the road Καρτερι-Παργα. Also in june 2 new metro stations will be given to public and in 2011 another 6 stations and the beggining of constructing the fourth U line!

Egnatia Motorway (A2) stretches from the port of Igoumenitsa in the west to the Turkish border (Kipi/Ipsala) in the east.

Who is "we"?

@rick123 The TEO-pass doesn't work on A7 anymore. Only attiki odos' e-pass is working (with no discount).

Ah, thanks for clearing the things out. But anyway, the way you pass the toll station is similar, so I mean that .

Yes it's the same cool way
The problem is that you need like 4-5 transceivers for all Greek motorways

They should unify them. Even the roads are under administration of different company. They would reach synergic effect by using one device...

And yep, it is very cool
