Greece to receive EU co-funding for key infrastructure studies

Creation date: August 10, 2011

Studies aiming at helping the implementation of a section of the Ionian Highway between the multi-level junction of Egnatia and the town of Kakavia in Greece will receive almost €2 million in EU contribution under the 2010 TEN-T Annual Call.


The studies being co-financed by the EU will lead the way to the construction of a four-lane highway section up to Kalpaki and to improvements for the two-lane road up to Kakavia. Once completed, the project will contribute to the completion of a vital north-south infrastructure link on Greece’s Western Axis.


Furthermore the new highway will contribute to the connection of the Ionian Highway, the Egnatia Highway, Igoumenitsa harbour and north-eastern Greece to the developing areas of the north-western Balkans and Albania.
