Traffic during the long weekend of Holy Spirit holiday

The long weekend of the Holy Spirit holiday is the first long weekend of the summer and therefore many are expected to escape. This implies increased traffic on the motorway in the following days.

Specifically, traffic is expected to increase:

In the direction to Patras:

• on Friday, from 15:00 p.m. to 22:00 p.m,

• on Saturday, from 08:00 a.m. to 15:00 p.m.

In the direction to Athens:

• on Monday, from 13:00 a.m. to 22:00 p.m.

Due to erratic weather forecast, increased caution is required. Olympia Odos reminds you some basic rules of safe transportation. We check our vehicle before the trip, we monitor the Variable Message Signs (VMSs) on the motorway, we take care of the safe transport of trailers, bicycles and animals, we drive while well-rested, we do not drive and do not stop in the Emergency Lane, we avoid talking on the phone without Bluetooth and if it is necessary to do so, we stop in one of the parking lots along the motorway (every about 10-15 km).

It is reminded that according to the Traffic Police instructions, the traffic of heavy vehicles (over 3.5 tons) is prohibited on Athens-Korinthos-Patras Motorway and in particular from Elefsina Toll Station to Rion Toll Station during the exit and return days, as follows:

In the direction to Patras:

- Friday 10 June 2022, 16:00 p.m.-22:00 p.m.

- Saturday 11 June 2022, 08:00 a.m. - 13:00 p.m.

In the direction to Athens:

- Monday 13 June 2022, 16:00 p.m.- 23:00 p.m.

Have a safe trip and a happy long weekend!
