Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The city of Thessaloniki

is to­day launch­ing a new scheme re­strict­ing park­ing in the down­town area in a bid to curb traf­fic con­ges­tion. In the first phase of the scheme, mo­torists will have to pay to park in the his­toric district of Ano Poli, as well as on cer­tain stretches of Pavlou Mela, Mitropoleos, Er­mou and Eth­nikis Amy­nas. “I have no doubt that there will be re­ac­tions and the peo­ple will curse us, but we need to im­pose some or­der,” Thessaloniki Mayor Yian­nis Boutaris said last week, stress­ing that strictly con­trolled park­ing is an ef­fec­tive way of crack­ing down on vi­o­la­tions.
