Lets do the News! from Ypodomes.com and with the help of google translate

Main Street E-65: The identity of the larger project of Thessaly


The Motorway of Central Greece, or E-65 is widely known as one of the roads constructed by the system of concessions. The contest started in mid 2000 and ended with the signing of the concession contract on March 31, 2008. The validity of the concession period is 30 years (end: March 31, 2038) and the construction period 66 months (ending: 30 September 2013).

This would, of course, if there were no known problems with the expropriation, underfunding, the archaeological findings and other issues of concern to this very large project. The section from Kalambaka to the connection with the Egnatia Highway, which closes the C-65 has stalled action on the COE for environmental reasons.

The rest are in manufacturing which has assigned the space required by the Greek government. This means of course that there are still (almost three years after signing the contract) items that are not work.

The concession company is a consortium consisting of: ACS GROUP (DRAGADOS, IRIDIUM), CINTRA, GEK-TERNA.

The construction of this major project undertaken by the company "Central Greece Motorway E65», which is a consortium of companies FERROVIAL-AGROM? N SA, DRAGADOS CONSTRUCTIONES and G.E.K. Terna.

THE IDENTITY OF THE PROJECT
The project begins just before the town of Lamia in a imikomvo by Pathe and crossing west of Lamia, the western part of the Thessalian plain meets the cities Karditsa, Trikala, Kalambaka, leading to interchange with the Egnatia Highway in Grevena Prefecture (in Park of Pindos) The total length is 174chlm and is the largest part is a new formulation.

The highway along its length will have 2 lanes in each direction + LEA and important technical features, found:

15 knots

6 Motorway Service Stations

3 Fire Stations and Road

7 x 2 tunnels (total length of 18.285 M)

146 Bridges (Upper / Lower Crossings)

88 Wildlife Crossings
The construction of a road connecting central Greece with the Pathe Egnatia gives new alternative routes to gigantism helps economies crosses, improves the overall traffic conditions and turns throughout the West Thessaly in a travel hub to and from Northern Greece and the Balkans.

Funding
The total project cost under the contract is approximately 1.65 billion.
The funding will be made: With government funds (including EU funds) worth 500 million euros, with equity of around EUR 217 million in bank funds.

The problems facing the highway are more or less known to the other roads concession. Following the decision on the fate of Section Kalambaka-Egnatia will have a better image for the completion of the shaft, and longer schedules as they were given by the Ministry does not apply and the onus is on issues that are ongoing construction work. One of the largest tunnel project is part of the Lamia-Domokos and has a length of about 3km. Of course there are other smaller items and encounters beauty landscapes.

Upon completion of this axis in Western Macedonia, Epirus and Thessaly will be areas with more roads and access to the south of the country will be much easier and much safer.

I read on the website Egnatia Thessaloniki-Serres-Promachonas route (A25) is 96 km. How many kilometers are in service on this route - Highway (A25) (Thessaloniki-Serres-Promachonas)? Thanks!

The company operating the Pelasgia toll posts on the A1 motorway announced that it will issue 1,400 passes that will distributed to Stylida residents throughout charge and allow them toll-free passage.

Until the passes are distributed, local residents will be allowed through the toll posts without charge.

The decision followed the sensational arrest of Stylida Mayor Apostolos Glezos, a well-known actor that starred in a number of local television series, after he tore down the barriers at the toll posts to create an access road for locals and demanded action to ensure that they did not have to pay tolls for local trips within their own municipality.

The issue arose after the company failed to issue passes for locals, who had no alternative road for making local trips and were forced to use the motorway and pay expensive tolls.

It has been great discussion and protests about toll charging in Greek motorways recently. Most private enterprises which are now owning the motorways seem to charge quite expensive tolls, in cases they have put toll stations at intervals of 50km while a significant number of motorway stretches lack alternative routes for non-motorway (and toll-free) traffic.

PS. The funny thing is that the area mentioned above has an alternative route in the form of Old National Road 1 which existed before the New National Road 1 (now A1) was built in the early 1960's.

For private cars: 130km/h on motorways, 110km/h on expressways, 90km/h on other rural roads and 50km/h on urban areas.

Usually there is a 10 - 15% tolerance, but if the police are out to issue fines, they issue fines. On some cases, however, they may be a bit more flexible with foreign drivers.

There aren't many expressways in Greece like you see in Austria or Poland. (2x2, shoulders and grade-separated for long distances).

Yes, there are just a few expressways (motor roads) - far less in length than our motorways.

The law states that for exceeding the limit up to 20km/h the fine is 40 Euros, for exceeding it in the range of 20 to 30km/h it is 100 Euros and if exceeding it by more than 30km/h the it is 350 Euros and they take your driving license for 60 days (I do not know if the latter is applicable for foreign drivers. Still it depends on the case, as I said before. You may have to pay even for exceeding the limit by 5 - 10km/h or you may not be fined at all if you find the police in a good temper!

Well in the other hand Egnatia motorway almost completed, A7 towards Kalamata many sections now are completed and of course A1 Athens - Thessaloniki (from Athens to Halkida and from Platamonas to Thessaloniki A1 has 3 lanes in each direction)

@Christos

Chris in his reference on expressways was talking about οδούς ταχείας κυκλοφορίας and not motorways. On this category we can only put sections of national roads 51 (completed upgraded sections between Ardani and Kastanies), 52(? - Kastanies to Ormenio), 65 (Langadas - Kilkis bypass), the under construction 4a (Veroia - Skydra) and maybe some unsigned sections of national road 90 (not the few A90 ones). Very few kilometres compared to the length of Greek motorways.

Have any of the newer, shorter motorways (like A12, A52, A11) had sections completed and opened to traffic in 2010? Which new sections should be open to traffic by the end of 2011?
