Greek National Road 9 (Greek: Εθνική Οδός 9, abbreviated as EO9) is a single carriageway with at-grade intersections in the West Greece and Peloponnese regions. It runs along the west coast of the Peloponnese peninsula, from Patras to Methoni via Pyrgos. Its length is around 220 km (140 mi), making it the second-longest national highway of Greece.
The government of Greece plans to replace the road by a new motorway. This will be a southern extension of the Ionia Odos, numbered A5, which will connect the Albanian border near Ioannina with the A7 north of Kalamata. It is expected to be completed in 2015.
The National Road 9 passes through or along the following towns:
- Patras (centre)
- Kato Achaia
- Kalo Nero
