Nea Odos is the Concession Company which has undertaken the operation, management and maintenance of the “Ionia Odos” Concession Project. This long-term project, with a total length of 380 km, includes the following main sections:
A) “Ionia Odos” motorway of an approximate length of 196 km. from Antirio to Ioanina (Egnatia Odos I/C). This motorway is of paramount importance, both at a social and a developmental level, since:
-Ιt connects Western Greece upgrading urban and rural centers such as Ioanina, Arta and Agrinio.
-It adequately serves and connects the ports of Patra, Astakos, and Igoumenitsa.
-It contributes to the wider development of the area by improving the access to major tourist and archaeological sites since, upon completing its construction, the trip from Antirio to Ioanina takes 1 hour and 40 minutes instead of 3 hours and 30 minutes.
This is a project that crosses two regions and four counties, thus meeting a long-existing demand and giving a new impetus for growth.
B) A.TH.E. motorway of an approximate length of 172,5 km from Metamorfossi I/C (area of Attiki Odos) to Skarfia, Prefecture of Fthiotida, after Kamena Vourla. A.TH.E. section crosses two regions and three counties and its technical features include among others: 8 bridges, 30 ICs and semi-I/Cs and 84 under & overpasses.
C) A.TH.E. connecting branch Schimatari – Chalkida of a total length of 11 km.
Having undertaken an inspired project of a total budget of about 1.1 billion Euros, Nea Odos aims to create contemporary and safe motorways of European standards that will contribute to national economic development, will safeguard environmental protection and will upgrade the quality of life of society at large.
The primary objective is to provide safe and faster transportation conditions as well as high quality services to all Greek citizens.
