Railroad is different from other means of transportation…
It is more environment-friendly… It occupies less land.
It is longer-lasting…
Stations are places where the hearts of cities beat.
They are centers of attraction…
In the developed countries of the world, the railroad ranks first among the criteria for development.
Turkey has launched a veritable railroad campaign over the past eleven years…
It has renewed its railroads.
It has constructed new high speed railroad lines and new ones are in progress.
It is establishing logistical centers.
It is generating urban railroad system solutions.
It is laying the foundations for a national railroad industry together with the private industry.
We still have a lot to do in this regard.
While we are making up for a neglect of sixty years, at the same time we must integrate railroads into other modes of transportation…
Our road map is ready.
Our objectives are clear and our projects have been prepared.
We consider it a duty to implement Ataturk’s maxim “Railroads generate prosperity and civilization.”
Every inch of railroad is a contribution to our country’s development and its journey towards civilization…
We are thankful to our people and passengers who have always supported us.
Have a good trip.
