The Border Point with Albania was changing from Egnatia-Odos, now it was on old Border-Point near Krystallopigi.
The course has change, with one more interchange and more kilometers Motorway.
All this is in stage of Design.In Red colour on this Map.

Apart from being busy, this motorway is used by a great number of heavy vehicles, as it crosses the industrial zone in Athens. This makes driving on A1 rather unpleasant. Anyway, I would not recommend to an occasional visitor to Athens to rent a car and drive on these roads!

In my trip in Trikala recently i saw that construction of the Central motorway (yellow line) going very nice: the u/c parts (can be seen from kms away) are in Lamia by-pass just before Bralos mountain, i saw some bridges there, after Domokos the same and just before entering Karditsa they working there too...

Christos (or any contributor located in Western Attiki / Eastern Corinthia):

Any photos of the Old National Road 8 (Ethniki Odo) Athens - Korinthos would be welcome. I am referring to the old road that passed next to the old dilistiria. The Old National Road 8 ran not far from the sea shore through the towns of Aghiou Theodoroi, Kineta, Nea Peramos and Neraki where it becomes Eikosotis Ogdois Oktovriou (28th of October).

I imagine there is hardly any traffic on the Old National Road (except for beach-go-ers), and certainly few big-rig trucks. However I am curious if there are any motels with decent restaurants (as existed in years past).

If I come to visit this summer I am strongly considering driving this alternate route for a day trip from Argos to Athens.

Thanks in advance.

Obviously you are a masochist.
I would be willing to pay as much as 3.00 euros in toll in order to avoid that road.
If you drive between Korinth and Patras instead, it is advisable to follow the old road. It is much more scenic and you avoid all the works on the new road.

Not a masochist. Nor do I have an issue with tolls. I live and drive in and around Chicago where I pay tolls on a daily basis. I even coughed up $16 U.S. to drive 65 km on Toronto ETR 407 last summer. Just wanted to reminisce about how nice the old "inconvenient" Greece actually was.

Back in the 1970s the Old National Road 8 was a real inconvenience with all the truck traffic and the OSE line that criss-crossed the old road.

Since our summer home is located directly on the Argolikos Kolpos between Miloi and Nea Kios (10 km W of Nafplio) I won't be driving to Patra.

The old national road from Korinthos to Dervenakia then Mykines on to Argos is plenty scenic and quite historic.

Tracks -not sure- are allowed in rush hours time (examble: weekends, holidays) only in old route Athens - Korinthos. In the new road, in motorway are forbidden
The same exists also in Athens - Lamia - Thessaloniki motorway

You mean that you prefer this miserable and dangerous road:



to this motorway:
