Construction of Athens metro Line 4 to start end 2015, Transport Minister says

The construction of the first phase of the Athens metro Line 4 is expected to start at the end of 2015, Transport Minister Michalis Chryssohoidis said in a press conference on Thursday.
The length of the new line will be about 13 km, with 14 stations, and not nine as originally announced, while the train will run without a driver, he added.
Athens Mayor Giorgos Kaminis, Deputy Transport Minister Michalis Papadopoulos and Attiko Metro operation company chairman Christos Tsitouras attended the press conference.
The new line is expected to be completed in seven years.
Chryssohoidis said that the first part of the new line, which will start from Veikou Park and will end at Goudi, passing through populated areas of Athens, such as Galatsi, Exarheia, Kolonaki and Zografou, will serve 220,000 passengers daily.
