Information for Bulgarian citizens in connection with the road situation in Greece as of February 11 201311 February 2013
In connection with the protests planned by Greek farmers, it is expected that there will be daily blockades of the national road network. The planned blockades will be held every day from 2pm to 3pm on the Thessaloniki – Athens highway and on the national road network in northern Greece – the Egnatia motorway, for now only by people, without the use of agricultural machinery.
In northern Greece, the following road sections are scheduled to be blockaded:
- Thessaloniki – the junction for Macedonia Airport as well as the Chalcedon junction and the road to Halkidiki;
- Thessaly – the old Athens – Thessaloniki national road – the Nicaea junction;
- Imathia – the Egnatia highway (Thessaloniki – Igoumenitsa) – the Kulura junction;
- Serres – On the Serres – Thessaloniki and Serres – Promachonas national road, leading to the Koulata-Promachonas border checkpoint – Levkona junction;
- On the Serres – Kavala motorway and national road – Nea Kerdiliya junction and the Rodolivos junction, Amphipolis municipality;
- Drama – on the Drama-Kavala national road – the Lidia junction and in the Drama municipality – Mavroleki junction, Kokinogea junction and Ohiro, Kato Nevrokopi municipality;
- Kavala – the Kavali –Xanthi national road – Chrysopouli junction;
- Evros and Rodopi – in Ferres at the sugar factory exit and the Komotini – Xanthi motorway – Kallisti junction.
There are no guarantees that the protesters will keep precisely to the schedule for the blockades. For the moment, no decision has been taken to blockade border checkpoints with neighbouring countries. It is envisaged that the protests will continue until a meeting is held with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.
