The Egnatia Corridor has crossed Thessaloniki in northern Greece for over two millennia. The start of the Metro construction on Egnatia in 2006 has led to increased traffic, decreased activity of commercial and historical sites, and a negative image of Egnatia by its citizens. Through analysis of primary and secondary data sources, this study aimed to provide an integrated understanding of current conditions along Egnatia for the Major Development Agency of Thessaloniki to use in future urban development projects. The study captures a future vision of the Corridor from the perspective of multiple stakeholders, a vision that achieves cross-benefits between functionality, economic vitality, historical character, and quality of life for its citizens.
