Great pics! I'm glad to see that construction for Greece's highway network has not stopped due to the crisis. This network will benefit the economy immensely in the long run.

Yeah, tell us some more about A71, when did construction start, when will it be completed, which towns will it serve, length, etc. Even Greek Wikipedia doesn't have an article about it.

You can find anything you want here http://greek-motorway.net/html/a7_map.html the map is a bit old, the light blue section is already opened and the light grey part is under construction
Construction started in 2008 and it will be completed end of 2012

No, Greek-motorway.net also does not have a page about A71.

What's the present status of A25/E79 north of Thesseloniki, A2 to Bulgaria? Which parts are open and signed as A25, and which sections are in the construction phase or still use EO12 or EO63? Each of the main online tile maps (Google, Bing, etc.) show different versions of the route.

Are there any project web sites in English or Greek about the parts that are under construction or the whole plan to finish the whole route?
