Egnatia Motorway Greece

Egnatia Motorway is one of the largest road construction projects being carried out in Greece (and, indeed, anywhere in Europe), the modern reincarnation of the great Roman highway known as the Via Egnatia.

The 680 km Egnatia Motorway is a modern motorway that will probably be the only road (and by extension the only transport) link spanning Northern Greece from its western to its eastern border. From its starting-point at Igoumenitsa, it runs across the Prefectures of Thesprotia, Ioannina, Grevena, Kozani, Imathia, Thessaloniki , Serres, Kavala, Xanthi, Rodopi and Evros, to the village of Kipoi on the Turkish border.

Nine major vertical axes provide links to Albania , FYROM, Bulgaria and Turkey , and the whole system is served by 720 km of service roads.
