EIB finances Thessaloniki metro extension
Wednesday, October 08, 2014



THE chairman and managing director of Athens metro operator Attiko Metro Mr Christos Tsitouras, and the vice-president of the European Investment Bank (EIB), Mr Mihai Tanasescu signed a €200m loan last month, the first installment in a €400m agreement to finance the extension of Thessaloniki metro Kalamaria extension.

The 518m project involves building a 4.8km underground branch off the initial Neo Elvetia – New Railway Station section of the metro, which is currently under construction, from Patrikiou to serve five stations at Nomarchia, Kalamaria, Aretsou, Nea Krini and Micra. The project will include provision for a further extension of the line to the city's airport.

The extension due to be commissioned in 2018 and the line is expected to carry around 65,000 passengers per day with a journey time of 15 minutes between Micra and the city centre.

What is the current completion date on the main section which is u/c now? It seems that it is taking forever to construct the line.
And why are the costs of this Mikra extension so high? 100 million of euros per one kilometer + one station is pretty high price. Is the terrain very heavy or the line is very deep maybe?

Price and delays of construction caused by numerous archeological works. Main section is planned for completion in 2018, but it's subject for change. That's what I think
