    Default A Price Comparison from Athens

    Hey all, the below link details Line 4 in Athens. For 1.2 billion euro, the underground, 12.5 km line is estimated to carry 220k passangers per day.

    I personally can't wait. I usually end up living near pangrati so that stop will be awesome!

    Maybe we should open an account here.

    "Chrysochoidis said the European Investment Bank’s recent decision to help fund the project had made it possible. “The EIB knows it can trust us,” said the minister. The lender is providing 800 million euros of the funding needed. The rest will come from the European Union and national coffers."

    Greece does have about 30% unemployment, which does reduce costs. This is also another reason why they are proceeding with this project to employ more people.

    In the case of this future line, yes.

    It would be interesting to look at the costs of the Blue and Red line which were built when Athens was still awash in the pre-Olympic fervor.

    That said, a further points of cost comparison is the trickiness of dealing with the Euro within local economies.
