Thivon Avenue in Athens due to receive 5.1-million-euro revamp

A 3-kilometer stretch of Thivon Avenue, one of Athens’s main arterial roads, is in line for a 5.1-million-euro revamp.

Attica Regional Authority signed the contract for the project on Monday. The scheme will lead to the stretch of Thivon Avenue from the junction with Petrou Ralli to where it meets Athinon Avenue being overhauled.

The project will involve the use of bioclimatic materials, the planting of trees and the creation of ramps for disabled people.

The work is due to be completed in 13 months.
