Restoration works at Syntagma Square in Athens almost complete

·

The long-anticipated restoration works of the lower part of Syntagma Square in central Athens are almost complete, newly-released photographs show.

Most of the revamped public space, which will eventually total approximately 1,300 square meters, is now accessible to pedestrians.

According to AMNA, the renovations preserve the square’s historic characteristics but are also interconnected with the Athenians’ need for a friendly, accessible and sustainable city.

The makeover has brought wider sidewalks near the start of the pedestrian Ermou Street and a new public space.

The plan also foresees the planting of 28 tall trees, visible pedestrian crossings, pergolas for shade, as well as modern lighting systems. Interventions facilitating people who are disabled will also be included.

The 1.3 million euro project is funded by the National Strategic Reference Framework for 2021-27. The makeover is based on a plan adopted in light of the 2004 Summer Olympics.
