Increased Traffic on Motorways as Athenians Abandon the City for Their Villages

ATHENS — The traffic at motorway toll posts was significantly higher on Friday as many Athenians abandoned the Greek capital for their villages, ahead of a full lockdown that will come into full effect on Saturday at 06:00 and last until November 30.

Over 4,000 vehicles have passed through the tolls on the two major Greek motorways, while on Thursday a total of 47,731 vehicles passed through the tolls against 30,123 that passed last Thursday. Attica traffic police are expecting a huge rise of traffic on the motorways on Friday and are on alert to facilitate traffic and prevent accidents.
