The country’s most strategic project is now complete, along with the last pending sections of the Aegean Motorway on the Athens-Thessaloniki axis. The 25km of Tempi and Platamonas Detours are essentially concluding a series of construction works that started back in the distant 1970s. From now on the Athens-Thessaloniki road will be a continuous motor-way. The Evangelismos-Skotina section, which will be bypassing the dangerous curves of Tempi and Platamonas, comprises 25 km, 11 of which are tunnels. The middle tunnel, the long Tempi Tunnel has a length of 6 km and is the longest in the Balkans. Each tunnel has two lanes per direction. The other 2 tunnels, at Tempi and Platamonas, have a length of 2 and 3 km respectively, 2 lanes per direction and a hard shoulder. All tunnels are equipped with state-of-the-art electro-mechanical systems:  Traffic monitoring equipment, air ventilation, lighting, SCADA, emergency phones, signaling, electronic message boards etc. The rest of the new section has also 2 lanes per direction plus hard shoulder and a parapet in the middle.  The distance when driving through this passage, can be covered in 15 minutes, compared to the 40 minutes that it required until now. SALFO & Associates in collaboration with Parsons Transportation Group Inc. have undertaken the Contract of the Independent Engineer of the project since 2008.
