Syntagma's Holiday Ferris Wheel to be Removed ASAP, Failed to Meet Safety Requirements

The ferris wheel that has been put up in Syntagma Square in the country’s capital city has been ordered to be removed as soon as possible, the City of Athens said in a press release on Wednesday.
The reason the ferris wheel is to be taken down is because it received a “damning safety report” by the Attica Regional Authority, according to sources.
The City of Athens said that it would not give the private company that installed the ferris wheel for the holiday season any extensions to provide documentation and certificates and said that the ride simply did not meet the required safety standards.
The ferris wheel has been in the square since December 21 but was never operational.
