The Central Greece highway runs from the north to the south-east through Central Greece, connecting the Egnatia Odos and Pathe highways at Lamia.
It is made up of two sections: the first, called Central Greece, will be 174 km long and constructed entirely by the Consortium. The second sector of 57 km is adjacent to the aforesaid and will be constructed by the Greek Government and subsequently transferred to the concessionary. The first 27 km are already in operation.
This highway is 231 km long. It will be the driving force behind the economy of the central and northern regions of Greece, connecting them to the capital in half the time.
After we entered the Greek concessionary market as manager of the Nea Odos highway, Cintra was again selected for the construction and operation of a second project: the Central Greece toll highway currently under construction.
