Dodoni Tunnels

KEY INFORMATION
Project Infrastructure Projects
Type Motorways
Location Greece

Two parallel tunnels, each 3.5 km in length. Their construction involved cutting through incongruent chalky formations and through karst-filled rocks with water and mud, which created severe construction difficulties and demanded specialized expertise and extraction equipment. The tunnels are built close to the Dodoni archeological site and one of its main functions is to provide full protection of the area. The tunnels' entries are located to the east of the archeological site and the exits to the south-west of the city of loannina.
