Ignorance is bliss! What does "your" money have to do with it?

Please do some research to find out how the expansion of the Athens metro grid is funded before you post in this thread.

According to the map Woonsocket54 posted the construction will start this September 2013 but i cant tell if this is true or not. Anyway, here is a map of Attiko Metro (July 2013, also includes the Line 4).

OK. Yesterday, on Friday 26/7/2013, the long awaited new metro stations were finally open to the public.
We are talking about line 2 extention to the south suberbs of Ilioupoli, Alimos, Argyroupoli & Elliniko.
Some pictures i took...

ILIOUPOLI Metro Station.




ALIMOS Metro Station




ARGYROUPOLI Metro Station




ELLINIKO Metro Station



Sunset outside the new station of Elliniko. This was the most crowded one from all four new stations.

Great pictures! I' m looking forward to see what art objects they will put to these new stations, since Attiko Metro Company exhibits art installations in all the metro stations. I think they will go for something very contemporary.

Congratulations Athens and Greece! I like this news because it means that despite economic problems the life carry on. I think Greece will exit of that bad economic situation. I don't know when, but I think that.

The stations are very modern and clean. Congratulations again!

Well, subway construction is certainly a smart investment. Traffic in Athens is incredibly clogged, and most Greeks live in Athens, so building more subway lines there makes sense 100%.

You should congratulate Brussels and the redistribution of funds within the European Union. Athens without the EU would be more like Aleppo or Casablanca.

That's kind of funny, since Europe without Greece would still be overrun with barbarian German-speaking Huns.

You don't even dare to think what Europe would be without the philosophical, architectural, theoritical, political, dramatical, scientific and linguistic heritage of Athens, do you?

If you still are confused, let's say that these EU funds are just a small restitution for offering Plato to the humanity.
