OLYMPIA ODOS is the largest and most difficult project of the ambitious infrastructure development programme “Roads of Development” the Greek State has initiated aiming at introducing modern and European-standard infrastructureprojects throughout Greece and at creating real opportunities of development and progress.

It is one of the most important national projects of strategic significancefor the development of Peloponnesus, but also of Western Greece and Epirus (through the Rion-Antirrion Bridge), as it connects these three Greek regions - as well as the capital of Greece, Athens – to the most important gate of the country to and from Europe, the port of Patra.

OLYMPIA ODOS is a 30-year concession project, partially funded by the Greek State and other European funds, but mostly funded by private investments by strong Greek and European Partners that have a long and proven record in delivering high quality and cost-efficient infrastructure projects, as well as providing high-level operational services. OLYMPIA ODOS will operate the 365 km motorway for 30 years and will use mainly toll revenues to return the investment to private lenders.

Concession Contract:
On 24th July 2007 the Concession Agreement for the Design, Finance, Construction, Operation, Maintenance and Exploitation of the 365km Elefsina-Korinthos-Patra-Pyrgos-Tsakona motorway project between the Greek State - represented by the Minister for the Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works - and APION KLEOS Concession Company S.A., was signed and then ratified by the Hellenic Parliament on 29th November 2007 by a large majority of Members of the Parliament.

The duration of the Concession will be 30 years starting from the Commencement Date.

In 72 months after the Concession Commencement date, the new and modern, European-standard motorway will offer high-level services to road users 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.

The new motorway will create a more direct and safer route between the towns of Elefsina and Tsakona and will help to improve the overall mobility in the South-Western part of Greece, primarily helping to reduce time travel, making it easier to do business in the region of Peloponnesus.
