  • [01] Antiquities can co-exist with Thessaloniki metro, minister says

    It is technically feasible to maintain archaeological finds unearthed during the prolonged excavations for a new metro in the northern city of Thessaloniki and at the same time to complete the necessary underground tunnels, Infrastructure and Transport Minister Christos Spirtzis said on Tuesday.

    He made the statement while touring a metro construction site on Venizelou avenue, where the bulk of antiquities have been discovered. The relevant minister was accompanied by Thessaloniki Mayor Yiannis Boutaris and the chief executive of Attiko Metro – the company undertaking the project - Christos Tsitouras.

    "The archaeological finds are very important … I believe archaeologists and the mechanical engineers will come up with the best solutions to secure everything you see around you, which is a treasure for Thessaloniki and the country, and … to built the station without harming the artifacts. I believe it's technically very feasible and it will help the image of Thessaloniki," the minister said.
