  • modernization and enforcement of the laws concerning the construction of pavements and special facilities for pedestrians, bicycles and citizens of reduced mobility,
  • improvement of public transportation and the discouragement of the use of private cars in the city,
  • establishment of a network of safe pedestrian walkways within the city,
  • withdrawal of the illegally parked private cars and other obstacles from the pavements and pedestrian facilities, and
  • introduction of the notion “pedestrians first” to the Greek public conscience.
