The works for the extension of the metro and tram lines to Piraeus will proceed as scheduled, a ministry of infrastructure, transport and networks statement underlined on Thursday.

The statement was issued in response to comments made by opposition party cadres, alleging that the sum already allocated for the specific project will be used in other regions, and calling on the people of Piraeus to demonstrate against such designs.

The ministry statement clarified that these are mature projects, denying that the sum allocated will be used in other regions in the greater Athens area. In addition, it was stressed that any delays observed were anticipated within the framework of the objections raised by tender participants.

Construction works are expected to be launched in Dec. 2011, the ministry promised.
