Greek National Road 9

Greek National Road 9

Greek National Road 9 is the second-longest national highway of Greece. It runs through the western Peloponnese, from Patras to Pylos. Its length is around 220 km (140 mi).

This highway travels near:


It runs almost entirely along the coast of the Ionian Sea and the whole Western Peloponnese as well. It will be completely replaced by a new motorway, numbered A9, which will be complete around 2012. Initial plans were to widen the existing road, for most of its length, but a completely new motorway will be built after all. Construction starts in late 2007.
