This center will be connected to the Mersin-connected high-speed railway line and the Konya-Antalya railway line. The annual 1.7 will be capable of carrying millions of tons and will make Konya the freight collection center of the region.

Starting from China, which is called ecek Middle Corridor “, the line that will connect the Central Asia and the Caspian region to our country through Europe will become the future's trade line.
