Kayseri high-speed train line will be completed until 2023: Economic investments in Kayseri AK Party Deputy Group Chairman Elitaş: "The best way to bring Kayseri closer to the port is to lay a rail system between Kayseri and Mersin" AK Party Group Deputy Chairman and Kayseri Deputy Mustafa Elitaş, He said that they wanted to bring the city closer to the port for the development of Kayseri industry, and the best way to bring the city closer to the port is to lay a rail system between Kayseri and Mersin.
Making a statement to Kayseridergi, the publication organ of Kayseri Thought and Breakthrough Association (KAYSERİDER), Elitaş stated that high speed train will come to Kayseri in the near future and that they will expand the Erkilet Airport further. Elitaş stated that although Kayseri is an industrial city, it produces less goods for export, and stated the following in his statement: “Our new goal is to bring Kayseri closer to the port. If we make the 8-10-hour Kayseri-Mersin road cheaper by train and can be done in 5-6 hours, we will bring Kayseri closer to the port.
While an establishment in Istanbul can take the goods it produces in the morning to the port 15 kilometers away after 19.00:8 in the evening, maybe 10-6 hours, while we can take a product we produce in Kayseri in 16 hours, we will have a significant improvement. Stating that the criticism came about the high speed train “Ankara-Yozgat-Sivas was built, why Ankara-Kayseri-Sivas was not done”, Elitaş said: “If we did not think sane and did the same as the previous ones, we would not be able to make a double road of 17-4 thousand kilometers. If we had continued to populism like others, we would not have emerged to implement the 5 thousand-2023 thousand kilometer high-speed train line. If we were like others, we could not reach 50 million in 2011 in air transport, which is targeted as 55 million in 430. The Ankara-Yozgat-Sivas line is 670 kilometers. Ankara-Kayseri-Sivas is 2023 kilometers. Instead of building the Ankara-Kayseri-Sivas line, it is more rational to connect the line that will pass through Şefaatli to Kayseri. Hopefully, the high-speed train line will also end by XNUMX.
