The Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD) General Director Süleyman Karaman, Konya high-speed trains through the whole goal is to connect the sea, he said.
TCDD General Manager Süleyman Karaman, who came to Konya by High Speed ​​Train, welcomed Governor Aydın Nezih Doğan, Mayor Tahir Akyürek, Mayor of Meram, and Mayor of Konya Chamber of Commerce Selçuk Öztürk. Karaman, Mehter Team met first met in the Metropolitan Municipality. Members of the protocol then went to TCDD Guest House held a press conference.

Speaking at the meeting, Konya Governor Aydin Nezih Dogan, Konya felt stronger than the past itself, he said. Stating that Konya is now connected to Ankara and then to Eskişehir by high-speed train, Governor Doğan said, “Thus Konya has had the opportunity to see and understand 2023 vision more closely. General Directorate of Highways was equipped with a four-way double Turkey's side. Now the General Directorate of State Railways continues to support our 2023 vision by building double railways in a race. We have two main goals as Konya. One of these is that we need railways that will open the goods and services we produce to the foreign market. In this sense, the tender of the railway project connecting the General Directorate of Railways to Mersin Port via Ankara-Karaman was realized. Our second important expectation was that Ankara-Konya high-speed train services made us breathe with the transportation opportunities that Konya could introduce to the world. Now we are stronger with Eskişehir. Only this year, especially 29 October 2013 will open in Istanbul-Ankara and Istanbul-Konya trains now we will be fully connected with the world, ”he said.
Stating that the expectations will be met in tourism, Governor Doğan said, “A logistics center is being built in Konya. The project is being carried out by the General Directorate of State Railways on an area of ​​one thousand 350 acres. Our government on this issue also made a decision of rapid expropriation. The General Directorate of State Railways is carrying out the expropriation works within the framework of this decision, but at the same time, they are about to complete their works with the project that is needed for the logistics need of the state railways, and hopefully the construction activities will start in the coming days. ”
Mayor Tahir Akyürek said: “The railways worked day and night and they connected Konya to Ankara and then to Eskişehir by high speed train. Then Istanbul-Konya will start. When we say Konya-Karaman, Konya will become a crossroads on the railway journey. I would like to thank to the Prime Minister and everyone who contributed to it..

TCDD General Manager Süleyman Karaman said that Konya-Eskişehir line is very important for railways and that this line is the product of domestic industry, local contractor and local engineer. Karaman said, için For him, we see it as a result of opening up to the world for us. Foreigners worked on other lines but we always made this place a native. A second feature of this line is its opening to Istanbul and Bursa. We do both sides. Maybe Istanbul will open first, but then Bursa will open. On the other hand, Sivas will open over Ankara. New investment decision was taken this year. Konya-Karaman-Adana-Mersin-Osmaniye and Gaziantep tenders of many places in these sections. Not only Konya-Karaman, Gaziantep-Osmaniye and Adana-Mersin between that time we finished, we are making the tender. I hope that in a very short time from here by high-speed train to Istanbul, down to the south by high-speed train to go. On the way to Istanbul, you will take 300 kilometers of trains. However, this speed will go to Adana-Mersin 200. Because we're gonna carry loads from there. We are making this way in order to bring the freight of Konya to the port, both passenger train and fast freight train. All our goal is; to try to connect this beautiful city to the south by train. We will be happy if we can contribute to the economy. Kul
