Extension to Kalamaria

Extension to Kalamaria

Thessaloniki Metro line is currently being extended towards the areas of Nomarchia, Kalamaria, Aretsou, Nea Krini and Micra. This underground extension shall be 4.78km long with 5 new Stations. More precisely, the project concerning the first extension of Thessaloniki Metro to Kalamaria was tendered on May 6th, 2009 and the relevant contract was concluded on June 2013 with AKTOR ATE Joint Venture. The total budget of the project amounted to 518 million (400 million € concern the contract in question). This project has been integrated in the National Strategic Framework – “Macedonia – Thrace” Business Plan and is funded by the European Investment Bank. In June 2014, construction works have commenced at NEA KRINI Station, which is included in the Thessaloniki Metro extension to Kalamaria, and constitutes the second Metro worksite after the TBM startup shaft.

Moreover, the infrastructure for the future extension of the Metro Line to the Airport is foreseen to be constructed together with a well-organized Bus Transfer Station in the area of Micra Station. A car parking facility is also planned to be constructed in the same Station.

This extension shall service more than 65,000 passengers, proportionally reducing the number of trips by private vehicles. It shall only take 15 minutes to cover the distance from Micra Station to the center of Thessaloniki. This project shall upgrade the municipality of Kalamaria in terms of transportation and environment, improving at the same time citizens’ every-day life.
