Phase B’ of the tender regarding the construction of Athens Metro Line 4, which concerns the submission of the technical offers, was announced yesterday, verifying the report of ypodomes.com, earlier this week. Now, interested parties are invited to submit their technical and financial offers until Monday, December 10, 2018. 

The 3 contenders are: 1. TERNA – VINCI – SIEMENS AG, 2. J&P AVAX – GHELLA SpA – ALSTOM TRANSPORT SA and 3. AKTOR – ANSALDOSTA SpA – HITACHI RAIL ITALY

This is the most critical stage as with its completion, the participating consortia will finally be invited to submittheir financial offers, which will lead us to the contractor of the largest infrastructure project of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport and Attiko Metro.

New Athens Metro Line 4 will not be very similar to existing Lines 2 and 3, from a technical point of view. All stations will be having a platform length of 110 meters, equipped with safety doors that will be opening upon trains’ arrivals. The total cost is estimated at 1.8bn euros (1.45bn excl. VAT) while works are expected to last roughly 8 years. Trains will be fully automatic and driverless (just Line Thessaloniki Metro) while the new control center will be constructed along with the 13-km-long new line. Necessary funds amounting to the project’s budget by 75%, have been secured by EIB and NSRF.

Line 4 will be covering most of the densely populated areas of the capital starting from Alsos Veikou, Galatsi, Elikonos, Kypseli, Gizi, Alexandra’s Ave., Exarchia, Akadimia, Kolonaki heading to Evangelismos, Ilisia, Zografou, Near East, Kessariani and finally Goudi, a few hundred meters from Mesogion Ave. Athens Metro Line 4 will be serving 220,000 passengers daily. 

Athens Metro Line 4 in its final form, will be33.5 km long with 31 stations. The next phases of the of the line’s development include extensions towards Athens – Thessaloniki motorway axis and Perissos (connection with Line 1 station). For these two extensions, funds of 1.5bn euros will have to be sought (excl. VAT).
