Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

An­thoupoli sta­tion on Line 2 of the Athens metro and Ae­ga­leo sta­tion on Line 3 are to re­main closed over the week­end to al­low for the in­stal­la­tion of ticket bar­ri­ers, part of an on­go­ing ef­fort by au­thor­i­ties to crack down on fare dodg­ing. An­thoupoli sta­tion will be closed on Mon­day too. Trans­port au­thor­i­ties have closed sev­eral sta­tions on and off over the past few weeks so that up­grad­ing can get un­der way. A se­ries of at­tacks by uniden­ti­fied van­dals who have smashed ticket val­i­da­tion ma­chines on buses and newly in­stalled bar­ri­ers at metro and train sta­tions have un­der­mined the ini­tia­tive. In a re­lated in­ci­dent, uniden­ti­fied van­dals smashed the val­i­dat­ing ma­chines on a city bus in the south­east­ern sub­urb of Vari on Wed­nes­day night be­fore threat­en­ing the driver with a knife.
