New funds for metro works


The Economy Ministry has drafted its final list of 275 projects that remained incomplete after the end of the previous funding period in December 2015 and will be transferred to the current period (2014-20), absorbing 3.4 billion euros of European Union subsidies.

Their total budget comes to 5.1 billion euros, and the expenditure from the previous period reached 1.7 billion.

Among the projects on the list are the Thessaloniki metro and its extension toward Kalamaria, the extension of the Athens metro, as well as dozens of small sewage projects.
