That's exactly what's been happening for the past few years...

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...

Sparta's bypass construction is divided into to two periods.
The first section was constructed and given to traffic, during the first period, that is, 1993-'94. This section starts from the intersection with the national road 39 and ends after 3,5 km, in an area called Kokkinovrahos (Κοκκινόβραχος, literally meaning red rock).

2007-2009, the second period.
In 2007 the construction of the second (5,9 km) and third (8,3 km) section started together. The second section bypasses the villages Zagana and Platana, whereas the third starts after the village of Platana, bypasses the village of Skoura and ends up on the national road 39, in the area called Pyri. Although the second section was finished and given to public use in 2010, a year after its contractual completion time, the third was from 2009 until the end of 2013, an abandoned work site. The reason for that is a combination of the bankruptcy filed by the contractor (after receiving €5,5 million for works that it never did) and a corruption incident in the supervising authority of the construction of the road. As a result, several overpasses and the Eurota’s river bridge were left unfinished for 4 years.

Finally, last December, the completion of the third section was tendered again, but this time with improved technical specifications (a 1,5 metre hard solder was added to each direction). The budget of the project is €19.650.000 and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

The article says that in the end of December of 2014 will be ready the bridge of Tsakonas [(and the final part of the section Paradiseia - Tsakona) of the Tripolis - Kalamata motorway].

Yes, the above mentioned A29 section is under construction, but in a rather slow pace (about 40% of the whole work need has been carried out). It is only 16Km long with three exits and a 560m long tunnel.

A section of 90km (the middle one) Xyniada -Trikala is currently under construction with a deadline to December 2015.

The first(A1 - xyniada) and the last part( Trikala - PanagiaA2) of the axis have been postponed for a later stage.

There is no way that all of these roads will be finished by December 2015.

If you (the state ) don't even own the land you cannot build a road on it. Has all the land been bought to build them on yet or are the expropriations still ongoing like they have been for years.

If you consider the past, you are right to be concerned. However, I don't think that at this point of time, this is the main problem; most land issues have been arranged. Archaeological findings and mostly the known issues about funding of these roads, are more serious at the moment.

To tell the truth, I am sure that the A52 and A71 and one part of the A1 (Evaggelismos-Skotina) will be OK; other sections will probably require more time.

Don't forget that the majority of those projects have been withheld almost for 3 years due to funding issues of the private-public consortium
During this period, the expropriation and archaeological excavation (the most common reason of delays in greek public works) have been processed as they are funded only by the public sector.

Currently, there are only minor pending issues on those fields so deadlines of December 2015 is realistic in most cases.

Moreover, those project are co-funded with a significant important amount of money from European fundings (national Strategic Reference Framework ESPA 2007-2013). The deadline for completion of project funded by this framework is December 2015.
Off course, a delay of some months in some section is expected but in general the timetables are very strict.

Given the rich history of Greece I have no issues with matter where delays are caused by Archeology finds but as late as 2012 land on many sections of the Athens Patras road had even not been handed over to the concession, no construction had started and no Archeology flags were raised at that time. God knows what they haven't found yet until they actually started digging.

On a separate note the current toll incomes of the main concessions over the course of the economic upheaval is detailed here in a recent article.

http://www.ekathimerini.com/4dcgi/_w...03/2014_538201

Quote:
Revenues from toll charges on four major highways on which construction had ceased for two years before recommencing recently, came to 1.25 billion euros in the 2008-2013 period, Transport Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis has told Parliament.

Chrysochoidis, responding to a question by an Independent Greeks MP on the gains being made by highway constructors and operators, was the first transport and networks minister to present a comprehensive list of revenues from tolls, whose increase over recent years has sparked widespread controversy.
So they are pulling in around €250m to €300 a year on what is already built. Realistically they are unlikely to double annual income that if they finish everything including the A3. From that €500m a year ( more likely €400m tops) the concessions must pay for their own loans, for interest on their loans, maintenance of their network to 2040 or longer and a few €€s on top every year for all the hassle.

Quote:
Nea Odos SA saw the biggest toll revenues in 2008-2013 of the four highways that have recently restarted, reaching 452 million euros. Olympia Odos generated 445.2 million euros in the same five-year period, Aegean Motorways 324.5 million euros and Kentriki Odos 33 million euros.
Nea ODOS have the highest income ( on the A1 only I think) and seem close to €100m a year total and are not going to suddenly jump to nearer €200m a year once they finish the Tempi tunnels project and the other small A1 fragments.

That has to pay for the A5 ( along with EU and State grants) as the A5 will be nowhere near as busy or generate as much income.

On the other hand the traffic projections on the Rio-Anterrio bridge were very accurate as time has proved and perhaps the same projections on the A5 to the north will hold up.

But I fail to see an incentive in all this as an incomplete A5 means more traffic on the A1 ( via the A2)

Road Ardanio - Ormenio (A21) is not constructed to highway standard and there is no plan (and reason) to further upgrade.

The road in the majority of its length has been recently constructed in high standard (width 14m) with many brand new sections and separated interchanges and fullfills the need of the traffic for many years.

Currently, there are still some sections under construction that suffers from constructor's financial issue. I am not aware of the construction progress.

According to the below article from a local news site (in Greek), constructions have began in both segments again and completion are expected:
- Mostly new road Mandra - Psathades is expected to be delivered in July 2014
- The renovation- upgration of section Ardanio- Mandra (~38Km) is expected to be completed in September 2015. It includes the construction of 2 small villages bypasses and the construction of several interchanges
