The initial designs of the North Highway of Crete were executed at the beginning of the 1960's and had as target the residential and touristic development of the Island of Crete. The Highway waas planned to run through a diversiform geographic area and its construction required a considerable number of structures, such as bridges, tunnels, retaining walls, etc.
The first sections of the Highway were constructed in 1968. With the implementation of the 2nd Community Support Framework (CSF) (1994-1999) 47km of new sections were constructed, and 16km of the existing road axis were upgraded to a 22m double branch with a New Jersey safety island in the middle.
SALFO was responsible for the Programme Management of the subsequent sections that were planned to be constructed under the 3rd CSF (2000-2007). The programme included the construction of 48km of sections, 25km of which concerned the upgrading of the existing road axis. The programme that SALFO managed included the following contracts / segments:
Within the context of the above programme SALFO not only managed the design, procurement and construction of the above contracts, but also prepared the designs and tender documents for several sections.
