Konya Karaman high speed railway project is completed this year
“Studies on signalization in the high speed railway project between Konya and Karaman are ongoing. It will continue to be completed and signaled this year. Konya is a rapidly developing province in the region. There is a metro project to solve the problem of urban public transportation. It has reached the tender stage. Konya is not only an industrial and tourism city, but also an educational city with five universities. This is a very important potential.
