I though it would be better to show a different perspective of Greece, not only motorways but local roads as well as villages and a guy has asked me to post some photos of Nafplio local roads.

Anyway today i went to Athens to buy a new digital Camera!!!!! no more crappy mobile phone pictures i took some pictures of Attiki odos and A8 but it run out of battery and i couldnt take pictures of A7

Tommorow expect pictures of the 2 new tunnels that opened 2 weeks ago at A7 and some HD videos!

Coming from Athens international airport




















A1 Interchange










Elefsina Toll Plaza


Finnaly some proper signs!!! old signs are being removed and replaced with the new ones and they have numbered the Exits










Temp and Time




I have noticed many of these sign are installed along A8 , maybe they will install speed cameras soon.


Kakia Skala tunnels






















----Out of battery

Some pictures are not good because i am not yet familiar with the camera

At least we have got rid of the funny 8/8A signs. It is time to start replacing sings on the A1 and Attiki Odos and follow that Ax thing at last!

Two remarks on the exit numbering: First of all it seems that nobody (A2, A5, A6, A8) follows the "official guidelines" which state that they should be numbered according to the kilometer point and they do it sequentially (I think this is better anyway). The other one is a question. If Pachi exit is No 5 and the Kineta one is No 7, where is exit No 6. And also if you count backwards from exit No 4 to exit No 1 numbers do not seem to cover all exits to Elefsina, where the motorway starts. Any suggestions?

At the moment I think there is not an exit between Pachi and Kineta. It can be also seen on the ahead signs that along "Korinthos" also show the next exit (ie. at Nea Peramos --> Pachi, at Pachi --> Kineta and at Kineta --> Agioi Theodoroi). Who knows? Another (not uncommon) mistake or a provision for a future exit?

As far as exits 1-4 I think there are the following exits before Nea Peramos: One at the east entrance of Elefsina (Iera Odos) where the motorway should start. I say "should start" as the section between Skaramangas and Elefsina cannot be legally a motorway as there no other option for motorway-prohibited traffic. Then there are the exits towards the Elefsina Airfield, the one at Toyota (Elefsina - Magoula?), the one towards Thiva (NR3) and the interchange with the A6 (Attiki Odos). So we have 5 exits before Exit 4. [???]

Officially Greek motorway signs should use the DIN 1451 font. However, it does not seem to me as such - and it is not only the A8 case. Some newer signs on the A2 and A7 do not seem to use the above mentioned font.
