Government to call tender for metro extension in next 4-5 months, Transport Min Spirtzis says
The government will call a tender for the extension of line 4 of the Athens metro in the next four or five months, Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Christos Spirtzis said on Monday.
He added that negotiations are currently being carried out with the European Investment Bank so that the tender for the second part of the project is also called in 2016.
The government is struggling, as he said, so that all projects included in NSRF have been completed by the end of 2017. One of these projects is the Thessaloniki metro.
Spirtzis stressed the importance of a big infrastructure project in dealing with the social security issue and recording growth, adding however that some members of the opposition parties do not wish so.
