History

The 2-lane highway opened up in the mid-1980s to the south side until the late 1980s, the bypass began in the south until the opening between the 9th and the 13th km of GR-9 and E55 was rerouted. Later in late-2003, a detour was created for the westbound traffic through Vrachnaiika because the highway was closed to make room for the opening of the beltway. After the beltway opened, the detour for GR-9 does not exist and the superhighway was reopened.
