State to check At­tiki Odos is keep­ing to deal

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Public of­fi­cials will ex­am­ine whether the con­tract be­tween the state and the con­sor­tium man­ag­ing the At­tiki Odos high­way is be­ing abided by, Al­ter­nate Min­is­ter for In­fra­struc­ture Christos Spirtzis said yesterday.

Spirtzis blamed the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment for chang­ing the terms of the agree­ment and al­low­ing the con­sor­tium to hire an engi­neer to de­liver a re­port to the min­istry, rather than al­low­ing public of­fi­cials to carry out their own in­spec­tions.

“We do not have an ap­petite to con­front or fight with any en­tre­pre­neur,” said Spirtzis. “What we want, though, is to have com­mon rules for ev­ery­one and to pro­tect the public in­ter­est.” Women wait a bus stop in cen­tral Athens yesterday. Public trans­port is op­er­at­ing on a re­duced sum­mer timetable but buses and trains will be even sparser to­mor­row due to the public hol­i­day. Buses will be run­ning ac­cord­ing to their Sun­day sched­ules, while metro trains will run ev­ery 12 to 15 min­utes and the tram ev­ery 15 to 30 min­utes.
