Athens Metro Line 3 to Reach Nikea in Early July, Karamanlis Says

ATHENS – The extension of Athens metro line 3 to Piraeus, reaching up to the new station in Nikea, will be ready in early July, Infrastructure and Transport Minister Kostas Karamanlis announced on Thursday. Karamanlis was visiting the construction site at Aghia Varvara station, along with Deputy Transport Minister Yiannis Kefalogiannis and the ministry Secretary General for infrastructure, Giorgos Karagiannis.

The section that will be ready and delivered for public use by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in early July also includes the stations of Korydallos and Nikea.

"A few months ago I had promised that the first three stations would be ready in the early summer. We have worked very hard to achieve this," said Karamanlis after his tour of Aghia Varvara station.

Karamanlis said that the hard work will continue and the next target was to meet the second part of the promise for the delivery of the next three stations – Maniatika, Dimotiko Theatro and Piraeus – and have them ready in 2022.
