We have moved into a new system of government with the elections that took place in our country on June 24.
The Honorable Mehmet Cahit Turhan, with whom we had worked formerly as a member of the Transport family, began the duty as our first minister in the new term entitled “Presidential Government System.”
Uniting with our Honorable Minister under the same roof once again will create a new synergy. We will accelerate the speed of investments, while we increase the quality of our services even more to carry our country beyond the level of contemporary civilizations with this synergy.
We will continue to cover our country with the service network of the high-speed trains that we operate successfully and the fast railways, the construction of which is ongoing.
We are planning to have our Ankara-İstanbul and Konya-İstanbul YHT trips, ending in Pendik, reach to Haydarpaşa at the end of the year.
Thus, our passengers who prefer our high-speed trains to travel between the two largest cities of our country will enjoy the easiest and fastest way to reach from one city center to another.
We will complete the electrification of our fast railway work between Konya and Karaman in this year and we will have Karaman, an ancient city of Anatolia, meet with the fast train.
We want to make the land of Mevlana a high-speed train city in every direction by opening the Konya YHT Terminal building with a modern architecture, which is under construction, to service this year.
We are planning to put the Ankara-Sivas High-Speed Railway, the construction works of which are continuing intensively despite the hard geographical conditions, into service next year. This line will be the most important part of the east-west transport corridor, reaching from Edirne to Kars, and to the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Iron Silk Road from there.
Besides these, we will continue to modernize our conventional railway lines and to renew our vehicle fleet for comfortable trips.
Have a nice trip…
