The Port of Antirio where ferry services began in the 1960s carrying vehicles from the Peloponnese to the Mainland Greece. It was not the only harbor carrying vehicles in the area. Ferry services was almost eliminated when the new Rio-Antirio bridge opened. It was reduced to mainly vehicles that are not allowed on the bridge.

The highway is now bypassed and has tolls in the eastern part. The junction with GR-48 (Antirrio - Amfissa) was slightly west of the village.
