As far as I know, yes.

Today's article:
http://ypodomes.com/index.php/autoki...B3%CE%BF%CF%82

The minister of public construction works said that the "Patra-Pyrgos" part will be auctioned until the 30/06 and the road will be finished within the first half of 2016 along with the road from Korinthos to Patra.

The southern part "Kalo Nero-Tsakwna" will be auctioned by the end of 2014 and will be finished after the end of 2016.

So we expect that by early 2017 (in less than three years' time) the biggest part of Ionia Odos (A5) to be finished. It is a big accomplishment given the current situation in Greece and it is a road that will help the west part of Greece very very much.

A8 Korinthos-Patra is postponed? I thought it should be completed until December 2015. What has the minster announced, both sections will be completed in 2016 or until 2016?

I haven't read his announcements in detail. However, I haven't heard of the A8 to be postponed beyond the completion date i.e. late 2015 - early 2016 (maximum).

In my opinion the "Korinthos-Patra" will be finished early 2016 and a bit later the "Patra-Pyrgos". There are strict mandates and milestones imposed by the EU for the first part.

PS. When I say "early 2016" I mean within the first 1-2 months of 2016 - a delay that is acceptable when the construction includes such rough terrain.

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
The correct length for 3) is 37 km according to that:

Chris, I hope you agree that road projects in Greece are doing well.

Especially the Tempi and Platamonas tunnels will be very impressing.

This is the end point of the motorway that will connect the Patra Bypass (part of A5) with the new port of Patra and National Road 9 (the dual carriageway on the photo). I assume that it will take a number in the form of A58x (probably A581).

I don't get, why they mapped all minor road between municipalities, but omitted major road in popular summer resorts. Compare the inland of Chalkidiki and Thasos island.

Majority of the images in Street view are collected between 2009 - 2011. Therefore, newly constructed road sections are not included.

While Greek mainland has been recorded in a great scale (including isolated mountainous villages), this is not valid for Greek islands in Aegean.
Most of islands in Aegean (except Rhodes, Kos, Mytilini, Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros) are not yet included. Also a part of South Crete is missing.
