Completion of the BTK railway line is eagerly awaited: Basics of Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia with the participation of presidents thrown Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line project is scheduled for completion in June 2014.
Kars Governor Eyup Tepe, AA correspondent, the normal conditions of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line until the end of this year they wish to complete the expression, the deadline in the tender process due to the appeal of the deadline of the end of the appeal, he said.
Stating that the works are progressing rapidly and the employees are working hard when they visit last month, Tepe said, “We expect it to end in June next year. After it ends, there will be trial runs of this. Kars project as well as the passage of his life waiting for the opening of both Turkey and Azerbaijan in particular railways, Georgia and even Kazakhstan in Central Asia, countries like Turkmenistan is looking forward to, "he said.
Mentioning that the importance of this line also emerged with the opening of Marmaray on October 29, Tepe continued as follows:
“As soon as we finish this line, you have a continuous train route from London to Beijing. Marmaray is coming now because this line is not built and ends in Kars. There is no continuation of Kars. This project is very important to ensure its continuity and to connect with Central Asia and even China. Of course Turkey is doing its part, is doing its part on Azerbaijan, Georgia continues to work. Of course, Georgia had a financial crisis last year. Azerbaijan funded it. With the support of Azerbaijan, studies are also conducted on the Georgian side. Georgia with over 2 thousand meters between us that Turkey has 2 thousand meters up a tunnel up to 4 thousand 500 meters, which the Georgian side. The construction of this tunnel continues. That tunnel is very important and borderline. After that tunnel is finished, the rails of the railway are being laid in certain places as a double line.
Tepe, Turkey is producing for foreign markets to a much more significant amount of what it produces, he said: "This is not the time when we look into those produced in manufactures and ourselves from scratch and final goods, we usually get intermediate goods, intermediate goods we export after that process and. We take the intermediate goods from outside. Transportation is a very important item, expense item for countries like us, whose exports and imports are very high. In order to reduce this cost, railways are the most profitable method. That's why we look forward to the end of this project. ”
- “When the railroad comes into play, the transportation cost will drop to a minimum at a time”
Tepe planned to be located next to the organized industrial zone for the planned logistic base, there will be an additional railway line 4,5 kilometers to the logistics center will be connected to the railway link said.
Investors in the organized industrial zone, semi-finished goods by rail through the cheap goods to reach all markets that attract attention Tepe, said:
“Or, on the other hand, if investors will buy a raw material, they will have the opportunity to bring that raw material very cheaply. The biggest handicap for Kars, transportation costs are very expensive. When a product from Istanbul came to Kars by truck, it cost more than the product itself. When the railway comes into play, the shipping cost will drop to a minimum at a time. It will both reduce the prices for the people of Kars and provide a great advantage for the entrepreneurs, factories and investors in Kars and will be accessible everywhere. ”
- “The line has been turned into a dub”
Emphasizing that he learned that countries such as Afghanistan and Kazakhstan have very serious demands on the subject, Tepe reminded that the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication made a revision last year in order to meet these demands.
The review here Pointing out that translated into a single line double hill, "currently in Erzurum, Kars, Erzurum and Erzincan out of the line connected to the four corners of Turkey made improvements. I think it will continue double up to a certain point. We are a country that consumes oil. Fuel is the most important factor affecting the cost of transportation. When you reduce transportation, our fuel cost will decrease. Turkey will benefit in every sense of it. I think it is a meaningful project as countries, nations and companies ”.
