The HELLENIC ASSOCIATION of TOLL ROAD NETWORK, or HELLASTRON for short, was established in 2014 and is a non-profit organization. HELLASTRON counts among its regular members all Motorways and Toll infrastructure facilities operating in Greece: Attica Tollway, Rion-Antirrion Bridge, Egnatia Motorway, Nea Odos Motorway, Moreas Motorway, Aegean Motorway, Olympia Odos Motorway and Central Greece Motorway. HELLASTRON network is almost complete. Selected new sections (the northern axis in Crete, extensions of Attica Tollway, connections to the islands of Salamina and Lefkada or the Elefsina-Thiva motorway) will add the finishing touches in the coming years.
Following the completion of the new sections of interurban motorways in 2017, the network, operated by the members of HELLASTRON, has reached a total length of 2,133 km and is arguably among the most advanced of its kind. Constructed to the highest european technical specifications and claiming numerous pioneering contributions in the field of operation, it offers top road safety along with quality services, reliability and comfort in every trip.
Mr. Bill Halkias, President of HELLASTRON, has been elected in May 2016 to serve the four year term, initially as 2nd Vice President for the term 2016-2017, 1st Vice President for the term 2017-2018 and, currently, serving as ASECAP’s President for the period 2018-2019, while it is foreseen that he will serve as an Immediate Past President for the 2019-2020 term. As the voice of the tolling industry in Greece, HELLASTRON collaborates with the Greek State authorities, the Greek Parliament and various scientific institutions and entities to help shape national transport and road safety policy. It also develops its own educational campaigns to increase public awareness and to promote a widespread culture of road safety.
The goal of HELLASTRON is to ensure that Motorways in Greece follow the latest trends in technology, improve road safety, raise customer satisfaction and offer a seamless transition of travel from one motorway concession to the next. Contributing to the safety, comfort and environmental fronts, the latest trends in technology, such as cooperative systems (vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure), connected and − later − autonomous vehicles, electric or alternatively fueled vehicles are being closely monitored by HELLASTRON in its continuing effort to catalyze and coordinate the incorporation of mature, carbon-neutral technologies into the network infrastructure.
On the path to mobility as a service and the future, HELLASTRON is closely cooperating with the academia and society. R&D programs and the industry’s corporate social responsibility agenda are top priorities and will continue to be so.

Olympia Odos is one of the major projects of strategic national importance constructed in Greece. It is the Elefsina- Korinthos- Patra modern motorway, a total of 202 km, complying with the European standards that connects the Peloponnese with the rest of Greece and Europe.
Olympia Odos is a 30-year concession project consisting of the design, construction, maintenance and operation. The new, modern and comfortable motorway offers an upgraded and safe connection to the western part of Greece and in particular to and from the Port of Patras, archeological sites and tourist areas, and boosts the exports and the agricultural production.
Olympia Odos was the only project constructed under traffic and therefore was one of the most difficult projects constructed in Greece within the last decades.
Today, the drivers enjoy a high level of quality service, such as updates on travel times, traffic conditions and weather forecasts.
The patrols, the emergency teams and the maintenance staff, in cooperation with the Traffic Police, the Fire Brigade and the private companies of road assistance, are on alert to provide the drivers with road assistance in case of emergency, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as well as securing the high standard corrective and preventive maintenance of the network.
Olympia Odos is more than just a road project.
It is a road that creates better conditions for everyday life, but also for the future of hundreds of thousands people. It is an essential strategic ally in the economic and social region development. People in Olympia Odos are committed to contributing substantially to this goal, through actions in the field of Sustainable Development.

European GNSS: Galileo and EGNOS for next generation Road Charging
Nation-wide schemes based on Satellite Navigation are operational in Germany, Slovakia, Switzerland, Belgium and Hungary – and under implementation in Bulgaria and Czech Republic, offering innovative flexibility for large and free-flow tolling domains. When applied to specific vehicle type in large road networks, or when tolling systems are extended to new road classes, the cost-benefit advantages of satellite navigation road charging are clear.
Galileo constellation provides for free and in full compatibility with GPS, increased availability in difficult environments, better accuracy and reliability. In addition, EGNOS also provides integrity information on GPS signals.
