Attempt to get Thessaloniki metro on track
Infrastructure Minister Christos Spirtzis promised yesterday that the government would present a solution before the end of the month to the impasse over the construction of the Thessaloniki metro.
The project has been held up due to legal wrangling over recent months but Spirtzis said he would hold talks with the consortium constructing the metro in the coming days. The minister made the comments after meeting EU Regional Policy Commissioner Corina Cretu yesterday. Spirtzis said that the pair would meet again in the next two weeks to discuss ways in which the project, which is receiving EU funding, can be completed.
