In the statement, the Ottoman period of the classification of the history of railways, the period of 1923-1950, when the construction of the railway was considered as a state policy and the railway-based transportation policy was followed; It was noted that the period after 1950, when highway-oriented policies were followed and railways were neglected, and that the railways were re-considered as state policy, was stated as follows:
“The railroads are grateful for Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who continues to guide Turkish railways by saying“ Railways will favor welfare and hope ”. In the period of 2002-2004, the Transport Master Plan Strategy was prepared together with Universities and related stakeholders, and the construction and development of railways were reconsidered as a state policy within the framework of this master plan as in the first years of the Republic. .
In addition to making new roads and developing railway transportation, TCDD considers it as one of its indispensable strategic goals in the field of railway to implement every new technology, every innovation in its own country and to produce these technologies locally in the process. Our railway length has been calculated since 1856 on a single line, including 1923-1950.
Recent information pollution and the course of discussions; 32 bin is deeply saddened by the excitement and pride of the railways being taken as state policy in the first years of the Republic and investing in the railways.
We owe gratitude to everyone who serves this country by laying a rail, and we thank everyone who supports the railroads sincerely and without any prior or intent in this process. We would also like to thank the words of 'Mustafa Kemal with the vision of Mustafa Kemal, even in the capillaries of my country.'
