We left behind another year full of the railway sector, where the President of the Republic of Turkey's directives and the support of our government were mobilized.
We opened the Kars-Tbilisi-Baku Silk Railway, which brought civilizations together.
In addition to our current lines, we continued our high-speed and high-speed rail works without snow and winter, day and night. We started the construction of Sivas-Erzincan high-speed railway between Sivas and Zara.
We laid the foundation of Konya YHT Gar and Kars and Konya (Kayacık) logistics centers. Kahramanmaraş (Türkoğlu) Logistics Center was opened to service.
We have continued to transform our existing lines into electrical and signaling.
