Con­tract for Thes­sa­loniki metro ex­ten­sion ap­proved

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A con­tract fore­see­ing the ex­ten­sion of the Thes­sa­loniki metro, which it­self has yet to be built, was signed yes­ter­day by of­fi­cials of At­tiko Metro and the con­struc­tion com­pany Ak­tor fol­low­ing the han­dover of the Trans­port Min­istry to Michalis Chryso­choidis.

The con­tract fore­sees the com­ple­tion of a 4.78-kilo­me­ter ex­ten­sion with five sta­tions – No­marchia, Kala­maria, Aret­sou, Nea Krini and Mikra – by 2018, ac­cord­ing to an an- nounce­ment by At­tiko Metro, which is re­spon­si­ble for the cap­i­tal’s metro sys­tem and the con­struc­tion of its Thes­sa­loniki equiv­a­lent.

The planned ex­ten­sion to Thes­sa­loniki’s eastern sub­urbs is not ex­pected to run into the same delays that have be­set the con­struc­tion of the main route as ini­tial ex­ca­va­tions have not sug­gested the pres­ence of sig­nif­i­cant ar­chae­o­log­i­cal finds un­der­ground, ac­cord­ing to sources.
