Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan said that the Metro Line to the 3rd Airport is planned to be opened in 2019 in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, to Turkish press members.
Minister Arslan said, “Pendik-Kaynarca-Sabiha Gökçen Airport metro construction works are continuing. Gayrettepe-New Airport metro line works are also ongoing. Also New Airport-HalkalıSo we will soon tender the metro system connected to the Marmaray line. We are working on all transport scenarios to the new airport. The third bridge connection is over. The road to Çatalca, which we call D-20 from Odayeri, is completed at the end of this year.
The Kinali connection will also end with the airport. We make road connections to the airport from 4 or 5 points, including various places in the city. The metro will finish a little later than that, but we finish the vehicle and public transportation connection roads to the airport. We plan to open the first metro line to the airport in 2019. We carry 60 million passengers to Atatürk Airport. There are two road connections there, the E-5 and the coastal road. We will have 5 road connections to the New Airport. There is nothing to be afraid of. Public transport services will also be put into operation quickly. ”
