Four new toll stations to open on Egnatia Odos highway


Four new toll stations are due to open on the Egnatia Odos highway in northern Greece on December 14, increasing the cost of motorists’ journeys.

The new tolls will be at Pamviotida, Mesti, Ieropigi and Evzones, with charges being calculated according to distance.

A regular car, for example, will have to pay 1.20 euros at Pamviotida and 2.10 euros at Ieropigi.

The Transport Ministry said motorists with an unemployment card will be allowed through without charge, while there are also plans to introduce measures so that residents in the Egnatia Odos area do not have to pay tolls when traveling short distances.
