I would like to ask about A2 and A5.
A2:
- I know that there is a toll station, but you mentioned that there will be 3 new, when will these three open?
A5:
- Which sections are opened? Its hard to notice on google maps but as I see Arta bypass and Agrinio bypass is opened. What about other sections?

A2: For the moment only the Polymylos Toll Station is operating (between Veroia and Kozani). The other three stations will be in Igoumenitsa, Ioannina and Nymfopetra (between Thessaloniki and Kavala), but they are not scheduled to open at least until November.

A5: Falusi is right. Only the Agrinio and Arta bypasses are opened. Unfortunately, there is no further progress after these openings. Works have actually stopped (the same happened on the A1, A3, A8 and A9) due to funding problems.

Is there some reason why GR doesn't use closed tolling system?

It is called... privatization.

All major motorways have been given to private enterprises in order to construct the whole road or any missing sections and to maintain the existing ones.

The contracts seemed to be a bit problematic. So we have:

1. Putting toll stations everywhere the enterprise wants. It seems that charging with toll stations on the main motorway is more profitable and requires less staff = less cost than to man stations on each exit.
2. Increasing toll prices even on sections that cannot be considered to be anything near motorway standards (i.e. A1 near Lamia, Tempi Valley and Platamonas and A8 between Korinthos and Patra).
3. Slowing or even stopping works.
4. Erecting signs in whatever fonts and road numbers they like.

Is there any motorway under construction in Greece right now?

Motorway enterprises

Nea Odos (New Road): A1 (part), A11
Aftokinitodromos Aigaiou (Aegean Motorway): A1 (part)
Egnatia Odos: A2, A3, A25, A27, A29
Ionia Odos: A5
Olympia Odos: A8, A9 (*)
Aftokinitodromos Morea (Moreas Motorway): A7, A71
Attiki Odos (Attican Road): A6, A62, A64, A65, A642

At the moment, the only company that work are the Moreas Motorway both on the A7 and the A71. All other works have been suspended with the exception of the A52 (which is not privatized).

Long live privatizations!!!


(*) As I have explained before, it is still unclear if it will keep the designation A9 or become the southern part of A5

A2 is Egnatia Odos - so no connection to Patra.

A3 (Central Greece Motorway) has been tendered to Nea Odos SA (*) which passed the construction obligations to Egnatia Odos SA. Anyway, there is no work at the moment and I doubt if they start working anytime soon, so no problem.

Please see: http://www.egnatia.gr/page/default.asp?la=1&id=3248 (in Greek). This also states that Aegean Motorway (A1 from Rahes to Kleidi) has been passed to Egnatia Odos SA too.

(*) Nea Odos SA also includes A1 from Metamorfosi up to Rahes and the whole of the A11.

To be more precise, the A25 is incomplete, but they are not working at the moment (as it happens almost anywhere in Greek road construction).
