Greece’s longest tunnel opens

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   A new road tunnel measuring 4.8km – the longest in Greece – will open to traffic in April. The Egnatia Motorway’s two-way tunnel at Driskos, Ioannina north-western Greece that took seven years to complete, cuts through Mt. Mitsikeli linking the Ioannina plateau with the Arachthos River valley. A total of 76 two-way road tunnels have been constructed within the framework of the Egnatia Motorway network, most of them along the Igumenitsa-Veria section. Athens News Agency: Greece’s longest tunnel opens
