During the past few decades the transportation network of the country was modernised and impressively upgraded and, as a result, Greece today has an integrated transportation structure allowing for fast and safe travelling all over the country.
Moreover, new projects are continuously being programmed, so that the infrastructures of the transportation grid of the country become more and more reliable.
The operation of the Rio-Andirrio Bridge (connecting the western Peloponnese with western Central Greece), the longest cable-stayed suspension bridge in Europe, and of the motorway “Egnatia Odos” in Northern Greece are of great importance for the improvement of road transportation in Greece.
