Athens to Lefkada in just 3 hours and 20 minutes! Amvrakia Motorway is only days away from opening

Amvrakia Motorway Athens Lefkada

Athens to Lefkada will be connected in a drive taking only just 3 hours and 20 minutes on January 15 when the works on the Amvrakia Motorway are expected to be completed, specifically the last section, Vonitsa-Drymos.

According to News Auto, the short delay – as the handover ceremony was expected to take place these days – is because, during the works, an ancient discovery was made, and the necessary actions had to be taken by the competent services.

The new axis is 48.5 kilometres long, has two lanes per traffic stream and has the characteristics of a closed highway.

With the delivery of the new highway, the Lefkada-Athens route will be reduced to approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes from the current approximately four hours, while the distances to Aktio, Preveza, and Igoumenitsa will also be reduced.

Let us recall that the company METKA, a subsidiary of Mytilineos, is responsible for the execution of the projects Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
