A brief description of the Project

The Attiki Odos is a pioneer project, which was executed by the Concession Contract method and constitutes one of the greatest co-financed road projects in Europe. It belongs to the first generation of co-financed projects awarded in Greece during the ‘90s and it essentially paved the road and laid the foundation for the execution of future successful concession contracts, both in Greece as well as on a European scale.

The Attiki Odos is a modern motorway, extending along 65 km. It constitutes the ring road of the greater metropolitan area of Athens and the backbone of the road network of the entire Attica region. It is an urban-periurban motorway, with 3 traffic lanes in either direction and an emergency lane. In the centre, it has a special traffic island, reserved for the operation of the suburban railway. It constitutes a unique infrastructure project, even in European terms, since it is essentially a closed toll motorway, within a metropolitan capital, where the problem of traffic congestion is really acute.

The Attiki Odos forms the link which connects the PATHE road axis (Patra - Athens - Thessaloniki - Evzoni), since it links the Athens - Lamia National Road with the Athens - Corinth National Road, by-passing the centre of Athens. Being a closed motorway, it has full control of its access points and consists of two sections, which are vertical to one another:
 

  • The Elefsina - Stavros - Spata A/P Μotorway (ESSM), extending along approximately 52 km, and
  • The Imittos Western Peripheral Motorway (IWPM), extending along approximately 13 km.

Main benefits

There are several significant benefits resulting from the construction as well as the operation of the Attiki Odos. It is indicatively mentioned that the motorway:


    Forms the main backbone which links all the transportation means and infrastructures of Attica: road, aerial, railroad (Metro, Tram, Train, Suburban Railway etc) and ports.


    Significantly reduces traffic volume within the capital, since it is estimated that it has absorbed a vast portion of the daily traffic going across the Attica basin.


    Contributes to the physical planning and town planning development and completion in the Attica Prefecture.


    Promotes the strategic restructuring of the energy and telecommunication networks.


    Contributes to the residential and business development of the Prefecture™s remote areas.
