Safe trips for a Happy Easter

To best assist the drivers in view of the increased traffic expected on the motorway because of the Easter Holidays, Olympia Odos reminds that the traffic is expected to peak:

In the way out of the city:

  • On Holy Thursday, from 13:00 p.m. to 21:00 p.m., approximately, and
  • On Holy Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 17:00 p.m.

In the way into the city:

  • Easter Monday, from 11:00 p.m. to 22:00 p.m., and
  • On Easter Tuesday, from 12:00 p.m. to 20:00 p.m.

Avoid peak hours to the extent possible when planning your trip to gain time. You can advise the Traffic Prediction Service (for the next 72 hours) and the Actual Traffic at the Toll Stations of Elefsina and Isthmos 24h/day through www.olympiaodos.gr.

Prohibition of traffic to heavy vehicles

It is reminded that according to the Gov. Gaz. 433/31-01-2023 the traffic of heavy vehicles is prohibited on Athens-Korinthos-Patras Motorway and in particular from Elefsina Toll Station to Rion Toll Station on the days out and into the cities, as follows:

- in the way in (direction to Athens ) on Easter Monday, from 12:00 to 22:00 p.m. 15:00 and on Easter Tuesday from 11:00 to 23:00.

Helpful tips

To help the drivers, Olympia Odos reminds you of a few important rules for safe trips:

  • Check your vehicle (fuel, oil, coolant, lights, turn signals and air pressure in the tires) before starting your trip;
  • Check the Variable Message Signs of the motorway. The staff of the Traffic Management Center communicate with you and give you valuable information about the route ahead of you.
  • See to the safe transport of trailers, bicycles and animals.  
  • Do not drive when you are tired, especially early in the morning or late in the night. When traveling long routes, stop for 15 minutes every 2 hours.
  • Do not drive and do not stop on the Emergency Lane!
  • If you need to speak to the phone and you are not equipped with a Bluetooth device, stop at a parking area along the motorway (available at every 10-12 km).
