It also serves the junction of Pigi and Artemissia. The highway afterwards runs downward, upward for the westbound lanes. The stream runs south of the highway and passes into dangerous curves with two tunnel, one that is halfway and another is entirely with about 50 to 100 m below. It passes with a few junctions linking to other villages but not Mystras but the northern part. The highway intersects with a road connecting to Mystras and runs into an avenue in Sparta and east of the Taygetus and 1 km eastward connects with GR-38 (Tripoli - Sparta - Gytheio).

History

The highway in the eastern part became paved in the mid-20th century. It was paved from Pylos to Sparta. In the 2000s, the construction of the Kalamata Bypass began and is in the northern part. The bypass was complete in the mid-2000s and prior to that of the highway was with GR-7. The highway used to have a traffic light near the airport but it became abandoned.
