The next step is on the way of being materialized in the tenders for the three major road projects tendered by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. Both the extension of Kymi Avenue, the Chalkida Bypass and the Bralos-Amfissa road section, relate to tenders that started last February and aroused the interest of the country’s major groups.

According to sources, the three tenders are in the tender committee and all the necessary supporting documents are expected to be completed in order for the process of nominating the temporary contractors to proceed. 

First, it seems that the work of expanding Kimi Avenue is progressing and the other two will follow.

According to the planning of the Ministry of Infrastructure, they will try for the projects to be contracted by next September and to see the bulldozers by the end of the year working.
