A roundabout on a motorway? Is that a joke? I thought something like that is only built in Albania...

Maybe they don't expect much traffic for this section or just don't have the space for a regular (grade separated)Interchange.
But I agree that roundabouts are not really optimal for highways. You can even see it in the video.

Yeah, maybe. If I get it right, the "bypass" will end at that junction (roundabout) with the N82 to Sparti - at least the video ends there, the road marking on OpenStreetMap ends there and there are no workings further to Mani visible on satellite images.

And then, you really have to ask how much sense that "bypass" really makes. Traffic towards Sparti is indeed low and I guess it will decline further when A71 is opened. So the bypass doesn't make much sense when it ends there in the middle of nowhere.

Perhaps someone from that region can say something about it? My guess is that the bypass was planed further south but the financial situation stopped the project there on the junction with N82.

The roundabout is at the end of the motorway. And as traffic is relatively low it would be OK.

The bypass is actually needed for better access to the town and the port than through the existing exits north of the town; no plans to go further to the south existed from the start.

(PS. A71 not A72).

Are you sure? The Video shows the motorway going further south and there seem to be started construction works which seem to have been stopped: http://goo.gl/maps/2kjPa / http://binged.it/1iyJWkH

Also, I agree that the access to the inner city is better with that exit, but accessing the port through N82 at that exit is a bit nonsense in my eyes. It'a also a bit conflicting that the exit there is needed for accessing but traffic will be low on the other hand...

Edit: Of course it's A71. I always mix those two numbers

From thereafter there is only a link to the provincial road going towards Kardamyli, Stoupa and Areopoli (Mani Peninsula). Probably the video shows that the first few hundred metres or so of this road will be dualled in order to cater for the traffic from/to the motorway.

I am not too keen with Kalamata, but the port might be accessed by first going into that link I mentioned, then the provincial road to Mani and then Navarinou Road. If there is somebody who knows the town better, please clarify.

Traffic will be low - I agree. But I think that as they have constructed the whole of the A7, there would be no point to leave these few kilometres around Kalamata out of the project. (It had been included in the original plan).

"EU Regional Policy Commissioner Johannes Hahn approves Greece's major motorway projects"
Quote:
The four investments come through the EU Regional Policy programme "Reinforcing Accessibility", funded through the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund in Greece.

The Ionian motorway concession relates to the construction of the 196 km long section Antirrio-Ioannina along with the works to upgrade existing sections of the PATHE motorway (the Patra-Athens-Thessaloniki which is part of the Trans European Transport Network). The motorway will pass through four Greek regions: Ipiros, Dytiki Ellada, Sterea Ellada and Attiki. The European Regional Development Fund will finance €723.6m. The reduction in road accidents is expected to be above 37%.

The completion of the Maliakos-Kleidi concession passing through the regions of Thessalia and Kentriki Makedonia, is about the construction of the Evangelismos – Skotina (24,71 km) stretch, along with works to upgrade existing sections (204,70 km) of the PATHE motorway. The Cohesion Fund will finance €699m. The reduction in road accidents is expected to be more than 30%.

The completion of the Elefsina – Korinthos – Patra motorway concession refers to the construction of the Korinthos – Patra (120 km) section, including the upgrade of existing sections (81,5 km) of the PATHE motorway. The motorway will pass through the regions of Ditiki Ellada, Pelopponisos and Attiki. The European Regional Development Fund will finance €977m. The reduction in road accidents is expected to be more than 38%.

The completion of the Central Greece motorway concession for the E-65 motorway, relates to the construction of the 78.5 km long section ‘Xyniada-Trikala’ and the installation of toll stations and a communication system on the Skarfeia – Raches stretch (57 km) of the PATHE motorway. The motorway runs through Thessalia and Sterea Ellada. The Cohesion Fund will finance €570m. The reduction in road accidents is expected to be more than 30%.

There were 2 decisions.

1. That renegotiating with existing concessions to give them more state aid was permitted under competition law.
2. The EU then providing a goodly portion of that state aid that is permissible.

Do any of these 4 decisions concern the stalled A1 tunnel project on the east coast too??

I think the Spanish will not be too amused at this.

Yes. The tunnels at Tempi Valley and Platamonas are included within the Evaggelismos – Skotina section as stated above.

As far as the A71 is concerned, the archaeological findings in the area have delayed the roadworks until "sometime within 2014", which I understand as end of the year.

As far as the indicated section of EO9, I was not able to find any information. On the other hand I found that a contract was signed in November 2013 to improve the existing EO9 section between Χώρα/Hora and Κορυφάσιο/Koryfasio. Does it mean that the new section is going backwards although it seems that works have been done on an significant extent? I don't know.

The A25 is being constructed by Egnatia Odos (the same company which constructed and runs the A2 and is also responsible for the A25, the A27, the A29, EO51 and the road Komotini - BG border). Egnatia Odos is a public run company (though in the course of privatisation), so their motorways/roads have nothing to do with the other motorway projects throughout the country.

Nevertheless their projects also faced delays during the last few 'crisis' years, but they still worked and finished sections on some occasions (for example, EO51 and Komotini - BG). It seems that also the A25, A27 and A29 projects are in the process of re-starting soon.

But Egnatia Odos company for sure recieves financing from the EU? So the EU has provided financing for A25 as well

Yes, you are right. These funds regard another arrangement which is irrelevant with the recent developments which were about works on the A1, A3, A5 and A8 motorways.

This is the road between Pyrgos and Katakolo:



It is not a motorway, but it has 2+2 lanes for the most part, which is not very common for local roads.
