Every step we take towards our 2023 targets brings us closer to the ideal of a great and powerful Turkey.
In this context, as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, we have carried out many projects such as Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, Osmangazi Bridge, Eurasia Tunnel, İstanbul Airport, Marmaray, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway Line, High-Speed Train Lines, Divided Roads, Motorways, Airports, Marinas.
We have invested more than 537 billion lira over a 16-year period. In this year, we have initiated important projects as in previous years. We have put into service the giant projects we have planned for the future of Turkey.
2019 will also be the year of giant projects. We will put into service the complete İzmir-Gebze Highway which will connect İstanbul, Bursa, and İzmir, among the important cities of our country. We progress intensely to complete the construction of Ankara-Sivas High-Speed Railway line by the end of 2019.We are putting the İstanbul Suburban Line into service this year. In 2019, we are going to the tenders of Kanal İstanbul and the Three-Storey Grand İstanbul Tunnel. The construction work of the line that will travel from Ankara to Afyonkarahisar, Manisa, and İzmir is going on. We plan to complete the construction of Polatlı-Afyonkarahisar-Uşak section in 2020 and Uşak-Manisa-İzmir section in 2021.
Our target is clear: carrying our country to the position it deserves by achieving our targets successfully for the year of 2023!
The year of 2019 will be an important year, carrying us to our targets for the year of 2023.
