The A7/E65 tunnels at Sterna and Neohori featured on the nice videos above have been partially open. The southbound was given to traffic earlier this week, while the northbound will follow sometime in summer.

Further south there are some delays in the section near the future A7/A9 intersection (if the A9 goes ahead, of course) as some land owners (mainly a quarry owner) still resist the order to concede their property. It is now doubtful if this section will open in August as scheduled.

What's the latest on A5 (west coast motorway)? Is it completely stalled due to the crisis?

Work on the A5 is currently done mainly in the areas between Antirrio and Aitoliko and Amvrakia and Arta. Of course, there are the usual Greek delays, but at least they work somehow.

Financial problems have affected the A1 section east of Lamia as well as the A3 and the A25 and as said above there are some problems on the A9 (environmental) and the A7 (legal), while the (reduced in length) motorway sections around Athens will go on next year. I do not know if anybody works (or even cares) for the A90 in Crete.

Perfect!

Angelos you mentioned, that you will make the video of highway via Athens. If you will have time, please make some video of the trip back to Argolida (a bit from Corinthos, a bit from the highway exit heading Argos and also I'd be very glad to see the actual view of streets from exit via Argos to Nafplio + the streets of Nafplio as well). Haven't been there for 4 years and I miss it!

Frogs in Northern Greece on Egnatia Odos.Scientists believe it could be a premonition for a future earthquake in Greece-Turkey seismic area.Others disagree and say it's natural behavior.Today,there was an earthquake-4,3.Fortunately, no damage.

Here's a link with video with the frogs on the motorway(in bulgarian):

That is one of Egnatia odos(A2) vertical axes, i am not sure whether it is finished or not, but according to a map from July 2009 in Egnatia Website it seems that most of it has been upgraded, according to the same site the last part with a length of 22 km would be finished during 2010, whether that happened or not i am not aware though!

was in mid-February in Thessaloniki, going by bus. I slept on the way to Thessaloniki from Promahoamas to Lakgadas. On returning to Romania, we went by bus, but this time I fell asleep somewhere in the Riziana (highway was 2 * 2) and I woke up all the highway, but Petritsio area. On the Riziana-Petritsio working on the highway?

Who was the last time this way - Promachonas-Thessaloniki? Of the 96 km of highway how many kilometers are in service and can use the highway (2 * 2)?

Thanks so much for information!
