Overall Progress of Works 95,5% (January 2017)

In Particular:

New Section of the motorway - Evangelismos - Southern Portal of Tunnel T1

This section is approximately 2.5 km long and constitutes the extension of the existing motorway from Evangelismos I/C to Tembi Valley, up to the portal of Tunnel T1. The construction of the structure for the protection of the Gas Pipe, the OSE & Old National Road “twin bridges” and the construction of the underpass that serves traffic to the adjacent properties has been completed.

The earth works and sewerage/ drainage works have also been completed. The asphalt works, the installation of safety barriers, the E/M installations and the installation of Variable Message Signs (VMS) are in progress. Completed by 96%

Tunnel T1

This is the first “twin” tunnel of Tembi Valley, approximately 2km long.

The civil engineer works, the painting and the asphalt layers have been completed. The E/M installations and the testing processes are in progress.  Completed by 98.5%. 

New section of the motorway – Northern portal of Tunnel Τ1 – Southern portal of Tunnel Τ2

This is the open road section that connects tunnels T1 and T2 of Tembi Valley, approximately 1km long.

Earth works and technical works have been completed, whilst sewerage/ drainage works, road construction and E/M facilities are currently in progress. Completed by 83%.

Tunnel Τ2

This is the second “twin” tunnel of Tembi Valley, approximately 6km long – the largest road tunnel in the Balkans.

The civil engineer works, the painting and the asphalt layers have been completed. The E/M installations and the testing processes are in progress.  Completed by 98%

New section of the motorway - Northern portal of Tunnel Τ2 – Rapsani

This is the open road section from the exit of Tunnel T2 at Omolio to the Rapsani I/C, for a length of approximately 3km. This section will connect to the existing section of the motorway (Rapsani – Aigani section) at Pyrgetos Toll Station. Furthermore, it is foreseen that a semi – interchange will be constructed at Rapsani serving the connection of Rapsani, Pyrgetos and the adjacent towns with Larissa. This semi-interchange will also connect the motorway with the Old National Road at Tembi, an area of environmental and cultural interest.

6 new bridges have been constructed, the largest of which being the Pinios River Bridge, extending over 200m. The asphalt works, the installation of safety barriers, the E/M installations and the installation of VMS are in progress.  Completed by 90%.

New section of the motoway - Aigani– Southern portal of Tunnel T3

This is the open road section from Aigani I/C to the portal of Tunnel T3 at Panteleimonas, of a length of approximately 5.5 km long. In this section, the new motorway “runs” parallel and to the west of the old National Road. An interchange is foreseen to be constructed at Platamonas to connect the Platamonas coastal areas with the old National Road. In addition, 8 bridges have been constructed, the largest of which is 40m long. The asphalt works, the installation of safety barriers, the E/M installations and the installation of VMS are in progress.  Completed by 94%.

Tunnel T3

This is the third “twin” tunnel located at the Panteleimonas area, approximately 3km long.

The civil engineer works, the painting and the asphalt layers have been completed. The E/M installations and the testing processes are in progress.  Completed by 98%.

New section of the motorway - Northern portal of Tunnel T3– Skotina

This is the last open road section of the new motorway, for a length of 1.7 km where this meets the existing motorway at Skotina. At this section, the new motorway “follows on” the existing old National Road which is “relocated” to the east with the construction of the New section.

3 new bridges have been constructed in this section, the largest of which is 200m long.  Earth works and drainage/ sewerage works are in progress. Completed by 82%.
