The new Spatial Plan for the roads, airports and ports of Crete - 15 November, 2017
The revised Spatial Planning of Crete defines the completion of the upgrade of the Northern Road Axis (BOAK) of Crete from Kastelli Kissamou to Sitia, which became the Law of the State. A further aim is the acceleration of the implementation of the Southern Road Axis (NOAK) in Crete from Pahia Ammos to Rethymnon, and the creation of connections of the BOAK and NOAK with the new airport in Kastelli/ Heraklion, when it is built.
Also in terms of airports, there is talk of "co-operation" of the two international airports of Heraklion and Chania until the new airport in Kastelli/ Heraklion is implemented, in order to unload Heraklion airport and to rationalize (i.e. shift) the distribution of arrivals / departures of visitors to a larger geographical area on the island. The airport of Chania is already in advanced procedures for expanding its facilities and upgrading.
With regard to the ports, it is planned to strengthen the competitiveness of the ports of Heraklion and Chania for the cruise ships, to strengthen the port of Heraklion for the containers and to maintain the development of a cargo port in Tympaki, refocusing on bunkering and supporting the planned natural gas and oil pumping and transport facilities from the "oil plots" of southern Crete.
An expansion is proposed for the existing passenger ports of intra-regional scope, Paleochora and Agia Galini, with Chora Sfakion, Gavdos, and Sougia.
