Athens-Thessaloniki national road…

Local officials and residents of three municipalities (Eastern Olympus, Lower Olympus and Evrimeno) block the railway line at Rapsani in central Greece for about an hour yesterday to complain about the ongoing closure of the Athens-Thessaloniki national road at the Vale of Tempe. The highway has been closed since last December after a massive rockfall, which damaged the road surface. The private company which manages that section of the road has undertaken the task of repairing it but the project will not be completed until April at the earliest.
