Driv­ers are still sav­ing gas money, statis­tics show

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Peo­ple look­ing for signs of an eco­nomic re­cov­ery in the amount of traf­fic on Athens’s streets are likely to be dis­ap­pointed by the lat­est fig­ures, which show the num­ber of car jour­neys has only risen slightly.

Data from the At­tiki Odos high­way shows that 201,851 daily jour­neys were made on av­er­age in Oc­to­ber com­pared to 200,245 in the same month last year. Nev­er­the­less, this is still well be­low the 2009 av­er­age for Oc­to­ber, which was 310,580.

Traf­fic of­fi­cials at the At­tica Re­gional Au­thor­ity are due to bring out their au­tumn re­port on traf­fic in Athens shortly. Kathimerini un­der­stands it will show small rises in jour­neys on some of the cap­i­tal’s main roads.
