Driving 140-150 km/h on motorways in Greece is quite usual.I remember last year on A2,Engnatia Odos towards Kavala everybody drove faster then 130 km/h.

Actually both the metropolitan and the suburban railway use the same pair of lines. This happens from the A6 exit 13 (Doukissis Plakentias I/C) to exit 20 (Airport I/C) and then they run along the middle space of the A62 all the way to the Airport Station.

To the west of exit 13, the lines are used only by the suburban railway; these photos (#2265) are from the area of exit 10 (Kymis Avenue).

Thanks but still they are 2 lines literally and typicaly. The Suburban rail line goes from Athens airport (Attica) to the city of Kiato (Corinth) and the Metro line goes from Athens airport (Attica) to the city of Athens (Attica).
