Sooner or a later there will be a motorway ( maybe two if we count the proposed motorway Between Kastoria and Krustallopigi) link between Ioannina and Kakavia as Albania is planned to join the EU therefore that section is essential part which will form the Adriatic - Ionian motorway.

If I remember well there were plans to upgrade that section but I don't know now what is the current state of the project.

This year 115,5 kilometars of new motorways should be completed.
Is that possible or not?

A14: 0/150km A97: 0/ 40km

About A22 and A221, Egnatia Odos A.E will design this Motorway, maybe the design one Motorway From A25 by Lefkona via ringroad Serres to Drama and ends on Kabala interchange with A2, or maybe they design the A22 from Serres directly to Kabala and a other Motorway the A221 from Kabala to Drama.

Are you sure? Because the only thing in common seems to be that they both cross water. This bridge at Thessaloniki will be approximately 8 kilometers long (3 times the Rio-Antirio Bridge) and the water is much more shallow. It seems to me that a low-level causeway with a high level shipping span can do the job here. Or maybe even a bridge-tunnel combination.

Some info about the Termaikos bridge:

Quote:
Thermaikos Bridge
(2008)

Location
Thessaloniki (GR)
Type
Arch bridge
Size
8,5 km (including 4,5 km of underground tunnel)
Progress
Proposal

COLLABORATORS
Structural Analysis
Dr. Panagiotis Spyridis, CEng, PhD

The proposal for the New Bridge at the gulf of Thermaikos, Thessaloniki manages to adapt to the specificities of the area, through thorough analysis, in order to resolve and overcome numerous limitations. The realization of the proposed connection, spanning 7 km of open sea, is the response to the needs and requirements of the metropolitan center of Thessaloniki and to the necessities of its inhabitants. While becoming part of the freeway “Via Egnatia” the project aims to improve the highway infrastructure system of the city. The new highway that will connect “Via Egnatia” with the freeway “New Egnatia” is the result of observation and survey of the contemporary architecture and urban planning worldwide.

The design is guided by the requirements and the limitations of the project area, while taking in consideration the social, political and economical status of the city of Thessaloniki, respecting its historical importance and contemplating on the preservation of the gulf’s ecosystem.

Why do we need to spend billions on such pharaonic project?

Regarding A25, some days before Egnatia Odos (who supervises construction of axe) gave a 6-month extension on the constructors to deliver the new road.

Therefore, the new deadline is 04.12.2014

More details in Greek.

Also the Thermaikos bridge is just a proposal and is not included in any planning for the following years. Not even an official study has been done from responsible authorities.

Where did you hear such thing?

From what the news are saying, the motorways' construction is speeding up and they expect to conclude with the work by the beginning of 2016.

In fact they expect to start delivering small parts of this road by the end of the year.

I heard for that from couple of truck drivers,who are going almost every week to Patras.
And also are there any plans for building the A9 motorway?

This site (in Greek) says that construction work for Olympia Odos (as it is commonly known) is heating up and they expect that from the end of 2014 onward to start delivering parts of the road.

http://ypodomes.com/index.php/alles-...BD%CE%B5%CF%82

Also the same site published this article about the rest of Olympia Odos (I think that this is the road named A9 - however I am not sure if it has/will have a distinct name).

http://ypodomes.com/index.php/autoki...B3%CE%BF%CF%82

It says that the road from Patra to Pyrgos will be auctioned sometime within 2014. They are expecting for the road to be completed within 24 months since the date of the contract arrangements are fulfilled and that they will try and have the road ready a bit after the road from Korinthos to Patra is finished. Anyway, the road is not a very difficult project and is already upgraded to motorway standards by 25%.

For the southern part of this road (Kalo Nero - Tsakwna/connection with A7) they too expect the road to be auctioned by the end of 2014 and the projected timeline is for it to be completed within 24 months (end of 2016/beginning of 2017). My personal opinion is that this part will need a bit more time than that.

Hopefully by mid 2017 most of the road will be ready. And I say most because for the middle part (Pyrgos-Kalo Nero) is unsure IF it will ever begin. Environmental concerns and appeals to the Greek High Court do not allow this part of the road to be constructed. In proximity to the planned motorway lies the, under protection, magnificent lake of Kaiafas and quite close is the site of ancient Olympia. So, extra care should be taken.

Is the project splitted into three (or more) sections?
* Patra - Mintilogli-Pyrgos
* Pyrgos - Kalo Nero
* Kalo Nero - Tsakwna

Any information about the section lengths (in total it should be 164km)?

@lazaroskyr, did I read it right in your linked article, that A71 to Sparti will be ready in 2 to 3 months?

There is no information (or I don't have any information) about the middle part. There are huge environmental concerns and the project is halted. I don't think that it will start anytime soon.

The other two parts will be auctioned separately. The northern part (Patra-Pyrgos) is more advanced because there is already work done and as the article says "even when the project was stopped, the archaeological work continued". And anybody interested in the Greek construction projects, knows very well how important is for the archaeological work to finish.

The length of the three parts (as I read in the article):
1) 75 km
2) 55 km
3) 30 km

Yes, you read right.

The road to Sparti (and the road to Kalamata) are in their final stage(s). They don't need more than 2-3-4 months of work in order for them to be delivered.

We expect both roads to be fully operational until the end of 2014.

So, only the northern 75km sections is/was already u/c, works on the middle and the southern section have never been started, ain't it?

The northern section will probably be completed in 2016.
