The 27-km part of Ionia Odos motorway (A5) from the Amfilochia interchange to Sellades, Arta, in Western Greece, will open to traffic on Wednesday.

Upon its operation, Ionia Odos will become a single motorway covering 182 km in total and the travel time from the Amfilochia interchange to the Arta bypass will be reduced by half, that is it will not exceed 20 minutes.

This is the next to last part to open to traffic, as on August 3rd the northernmost 14-km part of the motorway, from Perdika, Ioannina, to the Egnatia interchange, will be also put into operation marking the project completion.
