Extraordinary traffic arrangements will be implemented on Athens-Korinthos NR and specifically in the area of Kakia Skala tunnels from 19:00 on Thursday afternoon 08/03/2018 until 06:00 on Friday dawn 09/03/2018. Specifically:

  • From 19:00 until 23:00 of Thursday 08 March 2018, the two rightmost lanes in direction to Korinthos will be gradually closed, as well as the two leftmost lanes in direction to Athens. During this time, traffic will be accommodated on one lane per direction.
  • From 23:00 on Thursday 08 March 2018 until 06:00 next morning at the latest, the branch to Korinthos will be fully closed with simultaneous bi-directional traffic in the branch to Athens. More specifically, during this period, traffic to Korinthos will be accommodated through one lane of the opposite direction, whereas traffic to Athens will also be accommodated through one lane and in the area of "Skiron" and "Thiseas" tunnel will be locally deviated into the side service road out of the tunnels.

These arrangements are necessary in order to carry out a scheduled Large Scale Drill in the Kakia Skala tunnel complex and specifically in “Efpalinos” tunnel, in collaboration with the Fire Brigade and with the participation of all implicated parties from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, the Hellenic Police and the EKAV.

Olympia Odos thanks you for your understanding and kindly asks the drivers to comply with the instructions of the Traffic Police, as well as to be extra cautious as they pass through the area in question.
