Amer­i­can leader’s stay dis­rupts metro ser­vices

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Athens metro ser­vices will be dis­rupted over the two days of US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s visit. Syn­tagma, Evan­ge­lis­mos, Me­garo Mousikis, Acrop­o­lis and Syn­grou-Fix sta­tions will close as of noon to­day, on po­lice or­ders. Au­thor­i­ties will an­nounce when emer­gency mea­sures are lifted. Mean­while, there will be no metro ser­vice to Athens In­ter­na­tional Air­port be­tween 10.20 a.m. and 11.20 a.m. to­day. Adding to com­muters’ woes, there will be no metro ser­vice from the be­gin­ning of the shift un­til 10 a.m. due to a work stop­page called in re­ac­tion to govern­ment plans to stream­line the cap­i­tal’s trans­port sys­tem. Work­ers on the elec­tric ISAP rail­way yes­ter­day called off their strike.
