The expansion project
The stations of Μetro Line 3 extension “Agia Marina -Piraeus” were designed by ATTIKO METRO S.A. with top priority given to bioclimatic characteristics and the safe transportation of passengers in the Metro network.
The extension includes
• 7.6 kms long tunnel
• 6 modern stations
• 7 intermediate ventilation shafts
• Modern Modern electromechanical systems.
This is an investment of 730,000,000 euros euros in areas of the Municipality of Piraeus and in other Municipalities of the greater area (Nikaia, Korydallos, Agia Varvara).
Until recently, the areas around Piraeus faced intense traffic problems and were poorly served by public transport modes.
Now, Line 3of the Metro passes through the densely populated suburbs of Piraeus and ends in the heart of the city, the Municipal Theater.
In Agia Sofia, where the streets are narrow narrow and there is a large deviation due to Vokos hill, the “Maniatika” station was built, which will contribute to the decongestion of traffic.
In July 2020, the first three stations “Agia Varvara”, “Korydallos” and “Nikaia” were put into operation and since then the additional boardings in total on the network are estimated at 63,000 per day.
