New road Frangokastello - Agia Galini - 7 October, 2020


With funding from European programs and national resources, the work of a southern regional road connecting the southern beaches in the municipality of Agios Vassilios is progressing.

This road, as characteristically mentioned by the mayor of Agios Vassilios, will start from Frangokastello (in the municipality of Sfakia) and will reach Agia Galini, with the visitor traveling a total of 64 km instead of 220 km which is today for this route!

As Mr. G. Tatarakis said, "it was a vision we had since 2005 as the municipality of Lampi then. To connect with one road the beaches of our municipality. With 550 thousand Euro announced by the Region this regional axis will be completed.

It will unite the coastal front from Frangokastello to Agia Marina in Rodakino and will reach Agia Galini. We will use parts of the existing network as well. The visitor will be able to start from Frangokastello and through 64 km he will be able to reach Agia Galini.

At the moment, the visitor has to travel about 220 kilometers to visit all these beaches.

Mr. Tatarakis stressed that he has already discussed with the KTEL bus company, which is willing to put three public bus connections a day to make this trip.

The road will be 5 metres wide, and will be developed with respect for the environment.

The exact route is still to be determined, depending on environmental studies.

You never know when a project is finished in Crete :-)

Google. maps says 69 km or 91 km the distance is from Frangokastello to Agia Galini now ( without visiting the different beaches.) 220 km is not possible.

2 weeks ago it was interesting to see that the small road between Korakas Beach down Rodakino to Souda Bay along the coast is completely asphalted.

A bus connection between Frangokastello - Plakias- Agia Galini would be great !
