ATHENS – Attiki Odos, in an announcement on Thursday, informed the public that all parts of the motorway reopened at 08:00 (local time) on Thursday morning, with unobstructed flow of traffic on all sections of the road.

No tolls will be charged until midnight on Sunday to facilitate drivers, due to the ongoing problems in surrounding roads.

The vehicles will be transferred to a specially prepared section of the parking area at the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”. The company has asked that owners come to collect their cars and announced that a special bus service has been arranged in cooperation wth the General Secretariat of Civil Protection to transport car owners to that location, with buses departing from the Kifissias junction from 09:00 until 19:00 on Thursday to take them to the airport.
