The Ambelokipi interchange, at the junction of Kifissias and Alexandras avenues, is to change soon. And the interweaving of traffic at the intersection between Mesogeion Avenue and Pheidippidou and Michalakopoulou streets is to become a thing of the past as part of a series of alterations to the traffic flow at one of the city’s busiest spots. As of mid-September, Mesogeion will be one way between Vas. Sofias and Pheidippidou, which will also be one way from Mesogeion to Kifissias Avenue. Traffic will no longer be able to turn left from Kifissias into Pheidippidou, but at the next corner, from Vas. Sofias straight into Mesogeion. Drivers wanting to turn from Vas. Sofias into Alexandras Avenue will first turn right at Mesogeion and then left at Pheidippidou, which will be widened by the removal of the central bus lane. The bus lane in Mesogeion will also be removed. Traffic from Mesogeion to Vas. Sofias will also be via Pheidippidou. The alterations are to be made during summer.
