The effort of the Municipality of Athens continues at an intensive pace to create the appropriate conditions for the improved daily life with emphasis on security and the better access of the citizens, as it happens in every modern European capital.

With a series of large-scale projects, municipal crews began, last month, the restoration of sidewalks in dozens of city streets. Already, in the 3rd municipal community, Eous Street, a part of the Three Hierarchs, has been restored and Amphipolis is under construction. Respectively, in the 1st Municipal Community, the courtyard of the Holy Temple of Agia Markella is being restored, while in October, simultaneous works will start from 4 workshops in different apartments, as well as from a mobile workshop for individual ramps.

410 new sidewalks in the 7 municipal districts

Within the next two years, within the project "Rehabilitation of sidewalks and energy upgrading from the 1st to the 7th community", it is planned to create a total of 410 new sidewalks in the 7 municipal districts. This is a project with a total budget of 24 million euros, which emphasizes the energy upgrade of the sidewalks, the containment of high temperatures in the city and the response to the climate crisis. For this reason, the new sidewalks use modern materials (cold and natural), friendly to the environment and the citizen.

Along with the reconstruction and maintenance, sidewalks are being widened, as well as road openings that facilitate the reinforcement of greenery, with the planting of trees in the specific areas.

Bakoyannis: We care about people with disabilities and vision problems

"This is a project that when completed will have largely restored the image of the modern and friendly city, the one for which we work every day in the Municipality of Athens. The modern sidewalks we create will allow Athenians, something we think should have been self-evident for years: To be able to walk safely in their city and enjoy it. "Our primary concern in this whole process is for people with disabilities and vision problems to be able to move around the city with confidence and safety", stressed in a statement the Mayor of Athens, Costas Bakogiannis.

It is worth noting that throughout the project, special protection measures are taken, while drivers and pedestrians are offered alternative routes by the competent services for their convenience and safety.
