In relation to the increase of car traffic during the holydays the traffic police restricts the truck traffic.

More specifically: on December 24th, December 31st and January 5th in the town exit lanes will be forbidden the traffic of trucks with loads over 1,5 tons between the hours 16:00 to 21:00.

On December 27th, January 3rd and January 6th the same restrictions will be applied to the lanes for entering the highways between the hours of 15:00 to 22:00.

The Ministry of Transportation stated that for convenience of the drivers until January 4th all the construction works on the highway in the sections between Elefsina-Corinth and Metamorfosi-Skarfiya and the highway Cornth-Tripoli will be temporarily stopped. In these sections there will be at least two lanes working without the service lane. Exception will be the way Corinth-Patras; there in the regions where the construction of new tunnels and bridges has been planned, only one traffic lane will be opened.

As GRReporter already announced, there is greater traffic on the way Athens – Thessaloniki in the section of the Tembi valley, which is closed due to activated soil creeps. The lorries are being redirected from Trikala and Kalambaka towards Panagia on the Egnatia highway and the cars pass through Aghia on the costal road of Larisa district. Along with this cars and trucks are passing through Elasona. Another alternative way for the cars is from Domokos to Karditsa and Trikala.

From December 23rd to December 27th and from December 31st to January 3rd on the roads there will be increased traffic police presence. The main national road net will be patrolled on every 20 – 30 km.

More policeman will watch over the order close by to the commercial centers, bus stations, railway stations and harbours.

Meanwhile the Ministry of citizens’ defense confirmed some of the measures recently announced. Since January 1st on the policemen clothing including the special forces their names will be written. From the New year instead of tear gas the Greek police will use water as a security measure against riots and demonstrations.
