Yep... A few seconds later it was 315 km/h.

Hello!

Searching and playing OpenStreetMap and Wikimapia today I've discovered something new.
A25 motorway from Thessaloniki Promahonas is the portion of the highway Neo Petritsi - Lefkonas.
Attach images to the portion of the highway Neo Petritsi - Lefkonas caught on OpenStreetMap and Wikimapia.

Could you tell me if you really stretch of motorway opened in Neo Petritsi - Sidirokastro?

Thank you very much!

Simply Beautiful ! I've driven all these roads through this area and they are breathtaking! Thank God not many drive through here so man's destructive hand and behavior is minimal. Upload more !

The idiots that drive this fast on roads that are not suited for driving at these speeds should be imprisoned and never be allowed to drive again. There are very few roads, you can count them with the fingers of one hand, anywhere that allow drivers to drive that fast and endanger the lives of people that are on or near the roadway.

People have the misconception that because the speedometer indicates that this lethal weapon that I have been given a permit to use must have roads to accommodate this ridiculous speed-["how" some get their license- that is another long painful story!].

Many believe that their tax money should be put into constructing roads so that they can easily endanger people's lives, in order to drive their motorcycles, cars etc at the speed they believe they should.

Having lived throughout the US, Canada, Britain and continental Europe, the highways in Greece are satisfactory to drive on, the motorways are good and rural country and county roads are adequate. Roads are as good as the drivers that use them make them out to be. Every year Greece mourns the loss of what is the population of a small provincial town to the driving habits of Greek Drivers. Let us not get impressed with this type of behavior.

Having said that, I guess it is safe to say that not all areas of the Greek economy have gone to hell. The Casket Manufacturing industry, Road Side Memorial industry and clergymen are all working at a remarkable rate. Their jobs don't seem to be have been affected by the crisis. Nor the government who has increased taxes for the above services as well as the cost of the certificate to decorate your wall.

I am just curious: I was in Asprovalta this year for summer holidays, very sympathetic summer town, and later I just realized, that the main national (primary) road goes through the entire resort.

Had the whole Egnatia Odos traffic ran through this summer resort before the A2 motorway were build? It must have been dangerous.

Yes, the only route before the opening of the A2 was EO2 who ran through towns and villages with the exception of the Amfipoli - Kavala section and the bypasses of Xanthi and Komotini further to the east.

The section between Thessaloniki and Amfipoli were accident black-holes.

I can't imagine tourists with air-mats crossing such frequent road.

The reality was by far worse than imagination

And also imagine (if you can) that the whole traffic was passing from Kavala's downtown!!!

Once I get lost in Kavala (actually, I took the wrong ferry from Thassos island and end up in Kavala instead of Keramoti) and I can't imagine it. Are there any photos from those times?

@Stavros86: I saw these images from A71 (Lefktro - Sparta) road. Most of the parts of the road are almost completed...
