Double-digit Greek motorways

The A11 has been opened in full in 2009. There is no progress of converting NR6 into A12 and there is a tender in progress for the A13 (Thiva - A1 to Elefsina - A6). Works on the A25 and A29 go very slowly, while I do not think there is any progress on the A27.

The A52 has just been cleared-off some bureaucratic problems, there are just some modified plans for the completion of the motorways that are supplementary to the A6 (A6x), while the A71 is the only exception. There is some slight chance to be at least partially opened in late 2011.

The A90 (it is actually double-digit, but may be considered as primary along with the A1 to A9) is also going very slowly.

So no big news for 2011, considering the bad status of the Greek economy.

For A11 i can say that its not completed yet, they still working on this road.
For the road Elefsina - Thiva, indeed few days ago they announced the planning/construction of that road.

Not yet. It seems however, that (most of the) A3 will be constructed faster than the A5, which already has some open sections.

The comment in the brackets has been made as there are some environmental problems on the northern section of the planned motorway between Kalampaka and the A2, with court decisions that have halted works' progress.

Can anyone confirm if and when the Thessaloniki bypass and the expressway further south to Nea Moudania was renumbered A25?

Although the number has been assigned in 2008, all signs are still blue and there are no road numbers on them.

As you know, I have spent quite a lot of time commenting on the ridiculous situation with road signs and road numbers in Greece.

So here is my question, what would it cost me to drive in Greek motorways for 100km? I just want to get some idea. Lets say 100km. 10-20euros?

I suppose it depends on the toll system. A few years ago driving the entire A1 (600 km) was only € 10 with the open toll system.

We need to check how many tolls are in A1 highway from Athens to Thessaloniki and the prices in each of them. If i remember from my trip in Thessaloniki in 2008, should be at least 7 toll stations.

I can't wait for the E-65 to be constructed. It's gonna be amazing Nice photos. Thanks everyone. There are some under construction parts near Lamia (from A1 junction where the highway path goes along with the new rail line which is also under construction) visible on google earth and maps. Unfortunately it's not very up to date. Here is a link from google maps:

(copy that link and and paste it to your browser's bar otherwise it won't work)

There are also some parts under construction on the other side, near Karditsa. I'm trying to find 'em on the map right now.

How will they cross that mountain range? The valley to the north is approximately 400 meters higher in altitude than the plains around Lamia. So either they're going to build an 8 kilometer tunnel with a long and steep grade, or they're going to do something twisty, or a combination of both.

Hehe, yes. That's the most common problem while constructing highways in Greece. We are not as lucky as you in the Netherlands to have endless plains And just imagine that an 8km tunnel will lead to a plateau 500 meters high. The highway need to get down to the Thessaly plain. That means that a 25km long tunnel is needed to overpass the whole mountain. Of course it won't be constructed that way. I guess the will use both tunnels and bridges and it's not going to be twisty. It's going to have approximately 9 km of bridges and 10km of tunnels.
