Kentriki Odos Motorway Concession Company Societe Anonyme(Kentriki Odos) has undertaken the study, design, construction, operation, exploitation, maintenance and management of the “Aftokinitodromos Kentrikis Ellados – E65” Concession project. This project of 238 km in length, is of high strategic importance for the development of Greece and entails the construction of the Kentriki Odos motorway (E65), from the semi-interchange with the Athens – Thessaloniki - Evzoni (A.th.E.) motorway at the Thermopyles I/C and will end at the interchange with the Egnatia Highway after Oxyneia (181km in total in length), as well as the management and maintenance of the Athens- Thessaloniki - Evzoni motorway section from Skarfia to Raches Fthiotidas (57 km in total in length). E65 motorway is entirely constructed on new alignment and actually connects Eastern Greece to Western Greece.
At present, the section from Xyniada I/C to Trikala I/C, total length of 77.5 km is fully operational, while at the same time, the South section of E65, from A.Th.E to Xyniada, is under construction. The motorway section from Skarfia to Raches is operational since 2015 and has resolved the major problem of road safety at Petalo of Maliakos. The completion of E65 is of particular strategic importance for the development of the country and the region of Central Greece, as it will connect Central Greece with trans-European networks, with the ports of Igoumenitsa and Volos and it will complete the transport system at a regional and local level.

Hellenic Responsible Business Awards 2018: Long-Term Local/Regional Investment
Kentriki Odos earned the Bronze Award in the “Long-term Local / Regional Investment” category for the “Cycling Safely” program that it implements in collaboration with the “Panos Mylonas” Hellenic Road Safety Institute.
“Cycling Safely” contributes to shaping the road culture and behaviour of children as future drivers and aims at children adopting a responsible driving behaviour that will guide them in their future driving trips as adults. After being approved by the Greek Ministry of Education and the Institute for Educational Policy, it has been implemented with the cooperation of the competent Departments of Primary Education.
Fully compatible with the Kentriki Odos strategic priority of promoting road safety, “Cycling Safely” took place at more than 10 primary schools in 3 districts (Boeotia, Karditsa and Trikala) and trained nearly 600 students in basic road safety and the safe use of their first means of transport, the bicycle.
