Stations on line 3 of the Athens metro will be closed on selected dates during the summer months in order to test an extension of the line to Piraeus, the metro operator STA.SY announced on Monday, according to ANA.

On these dates, the metro stations Nikaia, Korydallos, and Agia Varvara will stay closed and line three will only operate between Agia Marina and the Airport. 

The first such period will begin on Saturday, July 30, and continue until the following Sunday, August 7, and then again on August 27-28. During those times, passengers for the Agia Marina-Nikaia section of the line can use the temporary bus service X50 Agia Marina-Nikaia, running every six minutes at peak times, and stops at all stations on the metro line's route.
