This line is; feed energy from the ground with the overhead contact line system will be a first in Turkey. There will not be even catenary poles in the historic peninsula, so that there is no image pollution. Along the line, tramway vehicles will receive their energy reliably from an embedded system between two rails. As a result, energy poles and associated energy cables will not be used along the route. Greening studies will be made between rails and will be harmonized with the region. By applying anti-vibration system under the rails, noise and vibration caused by train will be minimized and noise pollution will be prevented and travel comfort will be increased. Also this line, which are manufactured in Turkey will be our local and national car, "he said.
