Aghia Marina
On February 20th 2006, the Contract was signed for further extending Metro Line 3 by 1.5km as well as for the construction of one new Station at the point where three Municipalities, i.e. Aghia Marina, Aghia Varvara and Haidari, are intersecting, and the Depot in Eleonas area. Through this project, Line 3 of the Athens Metro is further extended to the western suburbs, thus reaching the AGHIA MARINA Station in the Municipality of Aghia Varvara. 

It is a very important project, given that it will serve the needs of the citizens of the western suburbs of Athens. Upon commissioning of the said extension, it will only take 9 minutes to reach the city centre (SYNTAGMA), while it will be possible to reach directly ELEFTHERIOS VENIZELOS Airport comfortably and in a safe and reliable manner in 40 minutes!

In particular, it is anticipated that this extension will contribute to the upgrading of the areas, which, until the present time, have not been within easy reach of the city centre, such as the wider area of Egaleo and Aghia Varvara. It will also serve specific destinations such as the Hospital for Infectious Diseases, the 'Dromokaitio' Hospital, the Attiko Hospital and the commercial area.

It is estimated that AGHIA MARINA Station (Municipality of Aghia Varvara) will serve over 30,000 new passengers on a daily basis.

The project related to EGALEO - AGHIA MARINA (Municipality of Aghia Varvara) extension includes:

The tunnel of the line, approximately 1,5 km long, which is to pass beneath Iera Odos and will be bored by means of the conventional underground method.

AGHIA MARINA Station (Municipality of Aghia Varvara), in the building plot delimited by Iera Odos, Krinis, Katsarou and Aghias Marinas Streets, with two entrances/exits on either side of Iera Odos.

The Transfer Station which is constructed concurrently in the area where AGHIA MARINA Station (Municipality of Aghia Varvara) is to be situated, with parking facility of 380 spaces.
