Seven new Athens metro stations will be ready within 15 months of legal issues being put to bed, Attiko Metro managing director Christos Tsitouras told a group of city mayors on Thursday.
The seven stations -- three on Line 3 of the metro system (Peristeri, Anthoupoli and Haidari) and four on Line 2 (Ilioupoli, Alimos, Argyroupoli and Elliniko) -- were held up after Siemens, which is providing signaling equipment, was embroiled in a bribery scandal.
Tsitouras said that once open, they would lead to 30,000 fewer cars using Athens’s roads each day.
