No, although the road is most of its lenght 2+1. The terrain is very mountainous to build the a motorway and the traffic level is very low so it would be pointless to build a motorway there

Does that means that there is no much traffic between the Peloponnese and Thessaloniki region and vice-versa?

to go to thessaloniki from Peloponnese you can go via A7 then A8 untill Athens, then change to A1 voila. If you live in west peloponnese you can either go from national road 5 or when the new motorway to ioannina is finished (A5) and then Egnatia odos A2 otherwise you can go to Athens via A8 and follow again A1. I dont know which route is shorter but anyway i dont think there is much traffic to build a motorway between patra and lamia, is will be very costly with minimal traffic. The current national road as i said is in very good condition with many place being 2+1 which is enough for traffic levels

The shorter route -probably- is A7, A8 from Patra to Athens, Attiki Odos highway (if you dont need/want to enter Athens city), A1 to Thessaloniki

From the map seems to be a simply road, not a motorway (2x2), right?

As you can see from the first picture there are just some cones, so it is easy to get in the under construction section - the photographer did so!.

But I think it may be a bit dangerous to race there as you never know if there is a truck or any workers on the road. And anyway, Greeks tend to race on already constructed roads as well.

Yes I know, you are right.
And I heard something about racing near Varkiza curvy streets, don't know if it is still like that...

Usually those u/c sections are not open to everyone and about race, no one races on u/c sections because its dangerous.
