Truck­ers call for im­prove­ments to road net­work

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A deadly crash in north­ern Greece last month, in which five peo­ple were killed when a truck plowed into dozens of ve­hi­cles, as well as a string of smaller in­ci­dents, have in­creased calls from haulers for im­prove­ments to the na­tional road work.

The fed­er­a­tion of Greek truck­ers, OFAE, yes­ter­day sent the In­fra­struc­ture Min­istry a de­tailed list it has been com­pil­ing since Fe­bru­ary, stress­ing par­tic­u­lar stretches of the net­work that are in need of re­pair.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, a pro­fes­sional driver was in crit­i­cal con­di­tion yes­ter­day after flip­ping his truck on the Athens-Thes­sa­loniki na­tional high­way near Plata­monas.
