More than 10 years af­ter the Athens Olympics, the govern­ment plans to re­al­ize two ma­jor road projects that had formed part of pre-Games in­fra­struc­ture works but were shelved.

Al­ter­nate Econ­omy and De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Alexis Har­it­sis an­nounced the two pre-Olympic road projects yes­ter­day.

The plans are for two fly­overs for the cap­i­tal’s Ki­fis­sias Av­enue, one at the junc­tion with Alexan­dras Av­enue and the sec­ond at the junc­tion with Eth­nikis An­tis­taseos in Ha­lan­dri, at a to­tal bud­get of 44.5 mil­lion eu­ros. Work­ers at the Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal of Naf­plio, in the Pelo­pon­nese, are seen trans­port­ing a ‘vic­tim’ dur­ing an earthquake drill yes­ter­day. The ex­er­cise was car­ried out with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the EKAV emer­gency med­i­cal as­sis­tance ser­vice and the Fire Bri­gade. Greece lies in a highly earthquake-prone zone.
