Tunneling works for Thessaloniki Metro, completed



Today, on July 31, 2018, TBM’s tunneling works for Thessaloniki Metro construction project have been fully completed.  More particularly, the second TBM “Frixos”, entered “25th of March” Station marking the completion of all tunnels by 100%. Regarding Kalamaria Branch, engineering works have been completed by 80% while the total progress for the extension has reached 60%.

On the occasion of the tunneling works’ completion, the Chairman of ATTIKO METRO S.A., Professor Yiannis Milopoulos said:

“Today is a great day for Thessaloniki Metro. The completion of all tunneling works both on the Main Line and the extension to Kamaria, brings us one step closer to the finalization of the project.

Ongoing works for the connection of the 2 lines has coincided with the completion of the most challenging -on a technical level and because of the geological uncertainties- and time-consuming opening of the entirety of the underground tunnels.

I would like to thank both the employees of Attiko Metro and the employees of AKTOR, the contractor, for the great effort that has been made for the past 2 and a half years, to revive a great project and realize a great dream for Thessaloniki.

Finally, I would like to thank the citizens of Thessaloniki for their trust and patience and to assure them that we respond with all our strength to the great demand of the city, which is the completion and operation of the Metro.”
