Regarding the aforementioned road from Xalastra to Polykastro (Eyzwnoi), I think is a necessity to be upgraded to a highway, since the initials of PATHE mandate such upgrade. Otherwise, the road is not complete.

I saw mentioned earlier that all interchanges, bridges, etc are constructed, so what keeps us from finishing with this road?

Is there some more information on this road project between the Preveza Tunnel and Vonitsa? It looks like a fairly high standard road under construction.

Project can be seen here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=12/38.8540/20.9176

A52 is under construction since several months and advances fairly good. Finances are secured since it's a prioritized project.

This is the last major section (~19km).
There is also a small section (~2Km) in Lamia entrance (including the upgraded Interchange)

Is the time schedule known, regarding the completion of those two sections?

What's the alternative? Is there significant difference between Jersey and Constant slope?

Here you can take a look of the progress of the motorway A71 (Megalopoli - Sparta).

I don't like that road sign... It should be Sparta, not Sparti. The city is internationally known as Sparta.

There is new imagery on Google Earth that shows the entire A71 from A7 to Sparti. Most of the motorway is nearly entirely completed, but the southernmost 10 kilometers is significantly less advanced, with a lot of segments with only earthworks.

It also shows a new road south of Sparti under construction, possibly a realignment of EO39 to just south of Lefkochoma. This appears to be a high standard two-lane road, possibly a super two.

The imagery is dated August 2013.





Southern terminus at Sparti

Ancient Sparta has left no monuments in the area! The most important monument, Mystras, dates back to the Byzantine era.

You are right, but i am afraid all signs from A7 - A71 intersection to the town of Sparta, will say Sparti not Sparta.

The difference in Sparti and Sparta, go way back, in the ancient times, when the Greek language had different dialects. The name Sparta (Σπάρτα) is the Doric form of the town's name, whereas Sparti (Σπάρτη) is the Attic form.
For some reason, the Doric form is used by the English language, instead of the Attic form, which is being used in the Greek language.

Regarding toponyms on road signs in Greece, the conversion is based on this table. Toponyms are not listed based on their international names. Thus, we see Athina instead of Athens, Thessaloniki instead of Salonica, Sparti instead of Sparta etc.

The reason for that are the extended archaeological excavations that are being performed in these last 10 kilometres.

As you correctly assumed, this is the realignment of national road 39, in order to bypass the centre of Sparta and the villages surrounding it.
As far as the technical details are concerned, the road is of type β2σ, that is, a single carriageway with one lane per direction. Each lane is 3,75 metres wide. In addition, each side has a hard solder, 1,50 metres wide. The total width of the road surface is 11 metres. These specifications refer only to the unconstructed section. The already constructed ones look like this. This section was given to the public in 2009.

Sparta, although it has been vandalised and plundered by several different groups such as the Romans and Frankish crusaders, it still has got several monuments accessible to the general public. The problem with modern Sparta is that, it doesn't have a modern museum to exhibit the numerous excavation findings, which are being housed in several warehouses around the town.

What's the state of that construction? It looks like it was stopped, but I didn't find anything about it.

Judging from satellite images (missing trees), it looks like it will connect to E.O. 30 here: https://www.google.de/maps/@36.95902.../data=!3m1!1e3

Would be nice if it will be finished one day. Driving through Sparti and its suburbs is not that nice...

On most road signs, Athens is spelled "Athina". However, I have seen a few signs that read Athens!
