PM Mitsotakis: 'Upgrades in Thessaloniki-Edessa, Drama-Amfipolis highways confirm the government's interest in the region'

Egnatia Odos motorway will soon feature two new vertical road axes, without toll stations, and will be constructed by a partnership of both the public and private sectors, said Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Saturday.

The premier was attending an event about upgrading the highways of Thessaloniki to Edessa and Drama to Amfipolis, organized by the Central Macedonia Region, held at Thessaloniki.

"The auction includes the contractor's updated obligation to maintain the specific highways for 27 years," noted the premier.

Despite the upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic, technical reports for the Thessaloniki-Edessa highway are ready, he stressed.

"These roads acquire European standards, serving thousands of drivers and contributing to employment and efficient land transport (...), he noted, and that "as geographical distances decrease, so do social distances."

These two projects confirm the interest of the government and the specific ministry in this region, he underlined.
