11 24 thousand km of railways will be a thousand thousand thousand. One-way high-speed train from Edirne to Kars, Trabzon, Erzincan will be made from vertical lines.
Minister of Transport Binali Yildirim 11 announced that it aims to increase the railway network of one thousand km to 24 a thousand km. Yildirim said the talks with China have been good for the project, which will surround the country with high-speed trains.
This week I gave MOLA a very different place in Izmir's historical Alsancak Station with the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım. For the first time in the history of the railway, a transport minister, by the way, the advisers met with his staff at the breakfast in the morning without guards. A switchman, a dispatcher, a maneuver, a machinist and a box office worker sat in the elaborate table. I saw that among them; more than the minister and the employee, the brother brother or even a father-son conversation was established. Let's share Hayd
How did you find the previous 'trainman conversation', Mr. Minister?
I found it pure, sincere, warm, sincere. They were happy and they made me happy. Look behind us, one of our oldest locomotives, the Turkish modern locomotive stands. What could be better to tell where it came from?
I've been stroking the world of students for a while. I have a documentary called 'Love Trains'. People are very charismatic and passionate about their profession.
Indeed, the world of railroads is a very special world. It has become a lifestyle rather than a profession. There is an understanding that goes from father to son, even from father to daughter.
EDIRNE'S KARS'S ONE LINE
A scissor just said; '30 years I've been in the profession, the last 10 year, I look beyond the joy of surprise, I look miracle.' The man's eyes are full when he says that.
When they see what is happening, they perceive their homes as if they were contributing to their families. There is such a love. They are looking at breakthroughs, projects full of bridle. Imagine We plan to increase our 11 thousand kilometers of 2023 to 24 thousand kilometers.
You were in China, and the talks on the high-speed train between the two countries have been tight negotiations, I guess?
Of course, there is a high-speed train. There is a single high-speed train line from Edirne to Kars. We wish to spread this main backbone into vertical lines starting from cities such as Trabzon and Erzincan.
Is this one of the crazy projects of our railways?
A giant project. Because 35 is a billion dollar project. Starting from the last period of the Ottoman Empire, the ongoing investments in the Republic in the early years of the Republic in the years to know, almost completely stopped. Now, with Chinese-Turkish co-production, we can really cover the whole country with iron nets. Both this time for high-speed trains.
When do you start?
Work will be done for a long time. The idea of the Chinese first is the clarification of detail projects. They propose to build high-speed train lines by piece, instead of rolling up the sleeves.
How much and how much time will it cost?
Just look at Eskişehir example. Because High Speed Train is in great demand from citizens. The high-speed train changed Eskişehir a lot. Odunpazari houses and people flocking with the people to see these beautiful places, as well as Ankara, Eskişehir high-speed train ride to come. Hopefully, it will be possible to come from both Istanbul and Ankara from the 2014. Although it was very nice with the new Bilecik ramps to come from Istanbul.
I was just gonna say the highway would be offended.
They won't offend, they're indispensable to our family. By the way, I can hear documentary shots.
It is going well, with the support of artists, scientists, athletes and journalists.
I thank all those who have contributed to 'Love Trains' as the transport minister. Our research shows that the 98 of the people already love the train but the 2 is riding. We must be faster, more formal, more modern. As we provide this, we are delighted to watch the concentration of demands on day by day. I believe your documentary will be useful. Then I'm going to steal the whistle for you and give you a green light sign. Let's say 'A-Journeys Team A'.
