Three new Athens metro stations on Line 3 will open to the public in June this year, the head of Greece's state-owned subway operator, Attiko Metro, told the semi-official news agency ANA-MPA.
Yiannis Mylopoulos said Aghia Varvara and Platia Eleftherias in Korydallos, and Aghios Nikolaos in Nikea will serve thousands of passengers in the western districts of Piraeus daily.
Athens tram services on the section of the line between Batis and the Peace and Friendship Stadium will be suspended from Sunday through next Wednesday for maintenance work.
Meanwhile, workers on the Piraeus-Kifissia electric railway, or ISAP, are set to walk off the job from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Thursday.
The year is 2021. Athens is a changed city. It is already acknowledged as a hip European destination. Neighborhoods that were considered no-go zones have become a magnet for alternative tourists - but not the kind who want to hurl petrol bombs in what they consider a Balkan playground. The Athens coast is transformed, overtaking Barcelona in popularity.
Greek shipowner Alexandros Agoudimos appeared before a Piraeus prosecutor on Friday following his arrest for debts to the state the previous day.
Agoudimos was detained during a random check by the police's motorcycle DIAS unit on Akti Posidonos in Piraeus on Thursday night, during which officers discovered he had been convicted for unpaid arrears.
