Egnatia Odos is a motorway in Greece that crosses the regions of Epirus, Macedonia and Thrace. It starts from the Igoumenitsa Port, which provides links to Italy by boat, and ends at Kipi in Evros, near the Greek-Turkish border. With a total length of 960 km, Egnatia Odos is the longest motorway scheme in Greece, providing significant social and economic benefits on a national and continental scale. Egnatia Odos also provides unique historic value; during the Roman era, it was one of the two most important roads leading to the Capital.
IBI Group has a long-standing relationship with Egnatia Odos S.A.. In 2013, the firm provided the roadway’s Toll Collection System, and have supported its extension since then. The toll system presently consists of 27 Operational Toll Plazas, totalling 215 lanes.
