ATHENS — Traffic restrictions were introduced in central Athens on Wednesday and will remain in effect through Thursday, police said, for security reasons related to Greek Independence Day events.

Several streets that lead to central Athens will be closed to traffic, including Lenorman Avenue at Kolonos, Kalirois Ave. at Neos Kosmos and Koukaki (at Vouliagmenis Ave. intersection) and Marnis Street, which leads to Patission Ave.

Parking or stopping anywhere in central Athens will be prohibited as of 06:00 in the morning on Thursday until the military parade which starts at 10:00 and passes by Syntagma Square concludes. All the major roads around Syntagma square as far as Patission and Omonia Square and down to Syngrou Avenue will be closed on Thursday.

These restrictions will also affect Lykavitos area, where the road that leads from Lykavitos peripheral road to Lykavitos hill will remain shut to traffic from 12 noon to 19:30 on Thursday.

All related bus and trolley schedules in the area will also be affected by the street shutdowns.
