Maybe the A25 will be the new Gateway to Greece and not Evzoni any more.

It will all be motorway from Belgrade - Sofia - Greek border by 2017 with the exception of the large tunnel section ( a single c.25km gap) in SW Bulgaria which will not be complete by then ( it may not even have started by 2017)

Most of the A25 itself is complete or at least started in Greece.

I thought a 30km (ish) section in Serbia...somewhere between Nis and Macedonia... was to be funded by the Greek government ( this was YEARS AGO) and that funding is no longer available with construction not programmed on that section at present. Serbia has an awful lot on the plate, road construction wise, right now.

The heavy transit traffic will inevitably be on the Nis <> Sofia axis rather than the Nis <> Evzoni axis, no matter what the Greeks do, so I can see why that is a higher priority in Serbia right now with all sections from Belgrade to Bulgaria either fully built or currently under construction.

Furthermore the motorway speed limit in Bulgaria is 140kph....niiiiiice.

Rio-Antirio Bridge

Today it is exactly 10 years ago the Rio-Antirio Bridge opened. It is still the world's longest cable-stayed bridge by overall length.

I believe it has the second tallest bridge structure on the Balkans after the Bosphorus bridge - an impressive 164m. According to its wiki it has also the second widest deck on a cable stayed bridge in the world after Millau.

At the end of 2014 the bridge will be ready:

According to an infographic from the company that operates the bridge, the annual average daily traffic for 2013 was between 8.500 and 9.000 vehicles.

Does anyone know if the bridge is still illuminated at nights? Full illumination that is...

Due to electricity costs, the Rio bridge illuminates only it's deck (yellow) lights. Only on special days will the pillar (blue) lights come on. The company than runs it stated that the electricity company will not do any kind of discount for the pillar lighting, so in order to keep the toll cost down, blue lights will come on only on special occasions...

Are there any plans to connect this bridge with A1 somewhere near Lamia? It could be superb short cut connecting Thessaly to Western Peloponnese

I've planned a trip to Zakynthos, but the detour through Athens discouraged me a lot. The bridge and the planned motorway seems to be logical there.
