A62 --> The link from the A6 to the Airport
A64 --> Ymittos Ring Road and the extension to Pallini/Pikermi
A65 --> Aigaleo Ring Road from the A6 to Aspropyrgos and probably sometime in the future to Skaramangas.

Is there actually anybody that can solve the A5 or A9 mystery?

Could anyone explain why the "experts" who numbered the Greek motorways according to the 2008 decision have allocated the A1 both towards Evzonoi and Thessaloniki (although the second route is covered by the A2)?

Is there any explanation for the A61 allocation for a motorway numbered as A64 since 2004?

Is there any possibility that exits will be numbered by the km point (as stated in the signing regulation) rather than sequentially as it stands?

Why did the guys who drafted the 2003 decision about motorway signing decided to put the prefix A in front of motorway numbers and change destinations into lower case letters (although I agree with this) while thousands of signs had already been erected (and now need replacement)?

How can the 2003 regulations show a different shield for national roads, while the official Highway Code (2009 edition) still bears the old (US style) shield? And why the Highway Code does not include the motorway number shields?

And finally how much has a bankrupt country paid to all these "wise experts" for all this crap?

Is it true that Komotini-Makaza is finished?
When is the opening date?
Do you have a forumer from this region that could take pictures?

Sory, I used the village name on the bulgarian side of the border. It's a new road north form Komotini to the new international checkpoint on C IX.

According to Wikimapia and GE, its greek name is something like Nymfea.

It's not a motorway It's a 2x1 road.
I've read in a regional blog that greeks have finished building it but it's not clear what stage was completed.

Edit: I've found information that the road to the checkpoint will be U/C till 31.08. Then it will open for traffic. Thank you anyway.

A question: is there a motorway from Evzoni to Thessaloniki or not? A1? Only 2 parts south of Thessa are missing towards Athens, right?

Thanks.

It's only a motorway from Evzoni (MK) to Polykastro. The rest is a high-standard two-lane road. Nearly all maps indicate this section from Polykastro to A2 as a motorway or expressway though.

Thanks, man. We were discussing about this in another forum. Looks like I was wrong... :-)

The A1 section between Polykastro and Axios Interchange has 1+1 lane plus a wide hard shoulder (actually used for traffic), but has motorway restrictions and green motorway signs. Due to the low traffic nowadays, there is still discussion if an upgrade will be necessary.

Going to the south, the A1 sections still missing are at Platamonas (south of Katerini), at Tempi Valley and at Stylida (east of Lamia).

I know, I used (MK) to indicate the border, not the country itself. It's a common way to denote border villages.

Hello,
I would like to ask about the fees Egnatia Odos highway, the section from the junction in Halastro to Igoumenitsa.
I found only information about the charges at the point Polymylos and I do not know how it looks at the points Malgar, Ioannina, and possibly others.
Thanks in advance.
