Athens to get two new flyovers


More than 10 years after the Athens Olympics, the government plans to realize two major road projects that had formed part of pre-Games infrastructure works but were shelved.

Alternate Economy and Development Minister Alexis Haritsis announced the two pre-Olympic road projects Tuesday.

The plans are for two flyovers for the capital’s Kifissias Avenue, one at the junction with Alexandras Avenue and the second at the junction with Ethnikis Antistaseos in Halandri, at a total budget of 44.5 million euros.
