yep

although this 5km extension won't be realised I found another map which also includes the planned extension of the green line to the north,the planned extension of red line to the South (Ano Glyfada) and the end-dates of some of the under construction extensions:

woooow! i cant wait to go back to athens. i was there a year bfore the big games and there were stories about the workers couldnt dig for 5minutes without running into more artifacts. Its like a museum and metro stop all wrapped into one. Whats the timing like? they on time or does it run like the ferries... "oh yeah, the ferry isnt coming today"(as i stood thinking on Kythera, i need to be back in athens tomorrow for my flight!)

I love greece and it looks like id love the metro too, excited to see it this spring

Thanks somataki.
What's the difference between a grey and a red dot in the map?
And what are the frequencies of the suburban lines?

Red dots represent operational stations, while gray dots represent stations under construction or planned.

Actually stations on the line towards the north have been operational since many decades, but they were not considered as a part of a suburban railway. That notion did not exist then. That service is still called “Halkida’s train”. It will be integrated into the suburban railway some time in 2008.

As for the frequencies, they range between 20 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the line. The service between Neratziotissa and the Airport is every 20 minutes with fast electric Desiro trains. It is a pleasure to ride that train and overtake expensive cars driving on the freeway.

The service from Neratziotissa towards the West, i.e. Kiato is once every hour, while the main urban corridor from Piraeus to Neratziotissa has a half-hour frequency.

The train to Halkida has about 1 service per hour, but it is not integrated in the urban fare system yet, not even for stops that serve suburbs of Athens, like Pyrgos Vassilissis or Aharnes.

EDIT:
By merging 2 threads (or more?) there are some posts that make no sense. This post used to be one of those. So I'm gonna edit it.

the closing of the line 3 is for the construction of the aghia paraskevi station... the other two stations could be built without the casual closure of the line
