When this project is implemented; We will have a new train line between Trabzon and Erzincan with 200 km length, which is suitable for 248 km speed with double line, signal and electric hour. This line will serve both freight and passenger transport. Thus, we will add great value to the economy of Trabzon and the region.

What did we do; To give an example, we have increased the divided road length of our city by 741 km increase to 151 km with our investments. We have extended the length of the BSK paved road to 224 km in 332 km increments. We also completed the Coast Path, which returned to the snake story. Thus, the way you move and blessings is the best you have seen. See, the biggest obstacle to the tourism potential of our city and region was limited and troublesome transportation. We have largely left this problem behind. With the roads we built, bridges, tunnels, viaducts, the name of the Black Sea did not change, but the land baht became white. Of course, we have a lot to do. The roads connecting our city to neighboring provinces have been completed to a great extent. Work continues on the roads connecting the city center to the districts via the coastal road. We also raise the standard of our roads that serve the places with tourism potential and the settlements in the inner parts. We are also building Kanuni Boulevard to ease the city-center traffic density on the coastal road. Yol
Referring to the works of the Zigana Tunnel Minister Turhan, “An important project is the Zigana Tunnel and Connection Roads on the Trabzon-Gümüşhane State Road. This project is vital for the economic future of Trabzon. Our city is the most important center and port of the Eastern Black Sea. With the Zigana Tunnel project, transportation will be much easier with the east and southeast of our country. ”
