One of the projects we will see going to tender in the near future, most likely in early 2023 is the triple junction in Skaramangas. The financing of this large road project will be covered according to information, from the NSRF 2021-2027 through the Regional Program of Attica (PEP Attikis).

The cost of the project is over 60 million euros. After the completion of the studies, the current cost of the project will be finalized and updated, especially with the large increases in materials and energy. The project had literally been stuck for years as it had remained in the drawers of the Attica Region for about five years.

Finally it was decided to return the project to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and since then there has been a race to enable the project to enter a series of implementation. In a recent visit to the commissioning of the pedestrian bridge of Haidari, the Deputy Minister of Infrastructure, Giorgos Karagiannis, noted that it is one of the projects that will be tendered immediately.

This project together with Ioannina-Kakavia, Thessaloniki-Edessa, Amfipoli-Drama and Makrakomi-Tymfristos constitute the new project package of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. In the previous package, the Chalkida bypass, Neapoli-Agios Nikolaos of VOAK, Bralos-Amfissa and the extension of  Kymi Avenue were tendered (in 2022).

The project that changes Western Attica

This is a breath-taking project for Western Attica. With the construction of the triple interchange, there will be a direct connection of the National Road with  Schistos Av., the semi-opened at its southern end, Ring road of Egaleo, will be connected, while the opened “ghost” Tunnels at the turn to Skaramanga before Lake Koumoundourou will also be completed and operational.

At the same time, the condition of the two unfinished tunnels will be examined. They are part of the contract and their current status should be thoroughly investigated. Furthermore, there will be a junction that will directly connect the Skaramangas Shipyards with Athinon Av.

With its completion and operation, the daily traffic flow from Athens to the industrial center of Aspropyrgos and Olympia Odos and to Schisto and the port of Piraeus will be significantly improved. This, as the increase in lanes on Athinon Avenue is planned and will help to improve its operation, as it currently presents a significant degree of saturation.

It will also help in the orderly operation of the commercial port in Piraeus and specifically in the road transport of containers. With the routing of the triple junction and the completion of the projects being carried out in Ikonio, the handling of containers will be done with greater ease and comfort.

Among other things, Piraeus and its suburbs will also benefit as the upgraded junctions will allow the rapid passage of vehicles from the area of Skaramangas to Piraeus and neighboring municipalities in significantly reduced times compared to today, especially during peak hours. In the future plans for the road network of the area, the widening of Athinon Avenue is planned in the section from Chaidari to Aspropyrgos, which currently operates with two lanes and obviously cannot serve the daily volume of vehicles. A study is being prepared for the project by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and funds will be sought for its future implementation.

What does the project include?

The project “Connection of the Western Regional Avenue of Aigaleo with the National Highway of Athens – Corinth and completion of the Skaramangas Junction” includes:

-Completion of the Western Regional Avenue of Egaleo in the last section of its length of 1.4 km up to Ν.Η. Athens – Corinth with the construction of the uneven semi-interchange (U/J) Skaramangas.

-Upgrading of the existing Uneven Junction of Schisto with the construction of one more elevated branch with a new bridge over the Athens-Corinth National Road.

-Upgrading of the N.H. Athens – Corinth in the section between the Skaramangas Highway and the Schistos Highway with an increase and reconfiguration of the traffic lanes.

-Construction of the new Shipyard U/J on Schistos Avenue upstream of the Skaramangas Shipyards which is necessary for the removal of the level signalized junction at the intersection with Schisto Avenue and the Skaramangas Naval Fort as well as the completion of the required traffic requirements of the area’s road network.

Within the framework of the construction of the above-mentioned Uneven Interchange and the upgrading of the Schisto U/J, a remodeling of Schisto Avenue is planned in the section between these two junctions.

-Construction of the required network of rain collectors in the area which is included and serves the above road projects.

-Relocation/protection works of P.B.O., networks. (Natural Gas, Hellenic Petroleum, EYDAP etc.).
