More specifically, Mr. Christos Tsitouras, Chairman of the BoD and Managing Director of ATTIKO METRO S.A. stressed that “innovation is the daily motto in the Metro Works. Even the more so, apart from rapid, comfortable and safe trips, the Metro System offers “surplus value” in the areas where Metro Stations are being constructed, a fact that has a direct impact on the commercial and economic activities of the Municipalities. Towards this direction and in close and harmonious cooperation with the Local Government authorities, our next objective is to provide technical and consulting services to the Municipalities”.
Mr. Stratos Simopoulos, Secretary General of Public Works stressed the importance attributed by the Ministry and ATTIKO METRO S.A. to the immediate implementation and handing-over of the projects, the re-development of the areas upon completion of the Metro worksite occupations, the re-development program that has already been implemented at the surface level of the seven new stations to be commissioned soon, as well as the exposure of the antiquities that have been brought to light, thanks to the Metro construction activities.
On their part, the Mayors expressed their undivided support to the Metro works and their satisfaction about the new way of operation proposed by ATTIKO METRO S.A., along with their anticipation for tangible results in the near future through the implementation of such projects, so much needed for the improvement of the quality of life for their citizens.
