Makaza would be thebest but the greeks are dragging their feet.
noted, thanks, I hear the same thing from other drivers...

Cool! Looks nice to watch but the other options looks simpler in terms of driving.

Thessaloniki - Evzoni is such a great road. Slow drivers drive in shoulder and fast drivers just pass around slow drivers in regular lane whatever the divider line is dashed or solid.

So back from Greece, thanks for the good advice some two weeks earlier, we've been traveling trough Ormenio - Soufli - A2 - Kavala, good choice.

Question about the 51 Greek road, it's quite good for the first half, not so good (and under construction for the second half going south). Any finish date for the entire modernization project? I've seen some boards along the way but no English version

Also, when someone gets to the new border crossing for Bulgaria (Makaza), please feedback on the conditions...

Nope. There are quite a few 'under construction' but since abandoned motorway projects in Greece. A1 A3 A5 A8 A25 etc and many more planned sections where construction never started.

A small section on EO51 (around Mandra) was opened yesterday. The whole project will be completed by July 2014.

Also on Monday, the Komotini - Makaza road was given to traffic.

A1, Tempi valley

New Google Earth imagery shows construction of A1 at the Tempi Valley. It appears that a circa 5.7 kilometer tunnel is under construction through the southern side of the canyon. The imagery is dated November 2012.

Yes, although there are the known problems in the continuation of roadworks (mainly lack of bank borrowing), the tunnel is expected to open by the end of 2014 - early 2015.

This will be the longest tunnel in Greece, AFAIK....

The tunnel at Tempi will be the longest one in Greece with a length of 5500m. The longest one on the A2 is at Driskos (4581m) followed by the one at Metsovo (3589m).
