The Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) has launched an international tender for the new concession of Attiki Odos, a 70km motorway system in Attica.
The concession concerns Attiki Odos’ financing, operation and maintenance for a duration of 25 years.
HRADF’s tender process will be conducted in two phases: a pre-qualification phase and a binding offer phase. Interested parties are invited to submit their expression of interest no later than April 20.
The motorway was constructed on a concession basis during the 1990s. It constitutes the ring road of the greater metropolitan area of Athens and the backbone of the road network of the whole Attica prefecture. It is an urban motorway with two separate directional carriageways, each consisting of three lanes and an emergency lane (hard shoulder).
In addition, the suburban railway of Athens has been constructed in the central reservation of Attiki Odos.
The motorway is also part of the PATHE (Patra - Athens - Thessaloniki – Evzoni) road axis and connects the Athens – Lamia national road with the Athens – Corinth national road bypassing the center of Athens.
Being a closed motorway, it has controlled access points and consists of two sections, which are perpendicular to one another: the Elefsina – Stavros – Spata A/P motorway, extending along approximately 52 km, and the Imittos western peripheral motorway, extending along approximately 13km.
In addition, part of the Egaleo western peripheral motorway extending along around 5km also forms part of Attiki Odos.
