Greece Interstate 8A is a toll freeway running from Kifissou some from Skaramangas, outside athend to northeast of Patras, that once had two-lanes running for 70% of the freeway 45 km, now its 45%, 105 km, Patras-Rhion, Longos-Selimantika interchange, Aegion, Platanos to Akrata, Xylokastron interchange, Kiato interchange, Corinth to Kiphissou Ave, originally GR Interstate 7 interchange, East Corinth to south of Loutraki, north of Kineta to Kineta interchange and east Kakia Skala, Megara to Neos Peramos (Megali Pefko), Eleusis to Kifissou Ave. The freeway starts from Aspropyrgos to Patras, the remainder is a highway. The length was 215 km, now its 207 km. by a new beltway, a highway bypassing Patras It runs for E94 from Kifissou Ave in Athens to southwest of Corinth, E65 from Corinth to Rhion interchange, and E55 from Rhion to north of Patras. It was first opened in the 1960s. It was under construction from 1993 to 1997. And in Kakia Skala 2001 to around 2004. There are 4 tolls, originally there were 4 toll exits, but they are shut down in the present day: Eleusis Toll booth, Isthmia toll booth, Corinth toll Booth, and Rhion toll booth at the 205th km. This highway at Kakia Skala will serve until a new bridge linking Rhion and Antirrhion as the only road connecting the entire Peloponnese peninsula and the Greek mainland. 2 to 4 lanes with the only 2 roads. History will change course making the eastern link from the peninsula to the mainland. Several strikes came to crisis in Rhion which would make traffic congestion to a worse as traffic for Epirus may have a strong influence. Construction and reconstruction and renovations had made an influence on traffic congestion in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and again in 2002, 2003 and 2004 with a high-speed rail and tunnel scheduled to open by 2004. There is some other road connecting the peninsula and mainland NE of Loutraki but mostly graveled and serves routes from Theba to Loutraki not as a main route. Lighting began for route west of Akrata interchange in the late-1980s. The last lighting project of that area was done at the northernmost point of the peninsula. The remainder continued west of Athens on a 6-lane freeway.
