Traffic during the Easter period
Traffic is expected to be particularly increased during the Easter Holidays, as every year.
According to the data of the previous years, the greatest traffic peaks occur:
During the exit,
- on Holy Thursday, from about 11:00 until 20:00 and
- on Holy Friday, from 07:00 until about 16:00 in the afternoon
During the return,
- On Easter Monday and Tuesday, from 11:00 until about 21:00
You can gain time by scheduling your trip as possible off the above peak periods.
It is noted that traffic on the Emergency Lane (EL), besides being prohibited by the Traffic Code, creates serious problems both in the access of emergency vehicles, when required, and in the smooth traffic, as the vehicles "illegally" circulating on the EL enter "abruptly" in the other lanes, thus causing serious friction and decrease of the motorway's traffic capacity, while they also
pose a risk to road safety.
Finally, we also note that truck traffic prohibition on Athens-Korinthos-Patra NNR all along from Elefsina TS to Rio TS for the outbound peak days, Holy Thursday from 15:00 to 22:00 and Holy Friday from 06:00 to 16:00, and for the inbound peak days, on Easter Monday from 12:00 to 22:00 and Easter Tuesday from 11:00 to 23:00 is applicable according to GG 981/20-03-2018.
We thank you for your comprehension and kindly ask motorists to comply with the Traffic Police instructions, to show increased caution during their trip and also show patience in eventual delays.
We wish you a Safe Trip and Happy Easter
