THE ARTIST'S WRITING
by Turkey "modern Silk Road Project", also called "Central Corridor" existing lines between East and West poses a complementary and safe route.
At this point, the main axis of the transportation policies of our country was to realize large-scale infrastructure investments to provide an uninterrupted transport line from China to London. For a long time in the development of railway networks in Anatolia and the Caucasus and Central Asia, and the integration of highways in the Middle Our work with the countries continues closely.
For this purpose, while taking important steps to develop a multi-directional transportation network in the Asia-Europe-Middle East axis, we also make mistakes in projects that will improve the transportation link in the east-west and north-south axis within the country. We can complete the roads which are complementary to the Baku Tbilisi Kars Railway Line.
For this reason, Marmaray Tube Passage, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, Northern Marmara Motorway and Eurasia Tunnel, Osmangazi Bridge, high-speed train and high-speed train lines, North Aegean Port, Gebze Orhangazi-Izmir Motorway, 1915 Canakkale Bridge, Istanbul New Airport as well as mega projects we increase the importance and benefit of this corridor.
In particular, we realize these giant projects, which will be the continuation of this corridor, with the public private partnership, by using both fast, low cost and private sector dynamics. Starting from China, we are transforming the Central Corridor into the future trade line that will connect the Central Asia and the Caspian region to Europe through our country.
