The project concerns:

  • Detailed Final Design and
  • Construction of civil works, and all mechanical and electrical installations for the construction of the Modern Tramway (TRAM) in Greater Athens.

The trajectory has a total length of 25.9 km double track, and includes 23.8 km commercial line and 2.1 km service line to the Depot and Workshop.

The project comprises 45 halts, one Depot, and 16 traction power substations.

The trajectory consists of 3 sections:
a) Section S1: SEF - Paleo Faliro
