Athens in a jam

It’s not as if everything is at a halt in the Greek capital. The progress in the situation with regard to cleanliness and sanitation, for example, is more than apparent. When it comes to traffic congestion, though, things have become quite unbearable again.

This, of course, is not the task of a single municipal authority, nor can the regional authority do anything on its own. What is needed is for the capital’s entire transportation map to be overhauled so that thousands of work hours are not wasted in traffic jams.
