Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Adil Karaismailoğlu made a statement to the media in Lapseki, where he went for the ceremony of placing the last block in the steel towers of Çanakkale Bosphorus Bridge.
Describing his ministry's projects for the new period, Karaismailoğlu said: “We have completed the highway infrastructure in the country. The airline infrastructure was also completed. We also have a railway shortage. We will focus on railways in the coming period. We have a network of 12 thousand kilometers now. When we increase the thousand 200 km high speed train network to 5 kilometers, a skeleton will be formed with 500 thousand kilometers network. Then, we will especially put the fishbone lines in the industrial areas and combine economic power with freight transport. ”
“Nationalization Breakthrough in Signalization in High Speed Rail and Inner City Lines”
Karaismailoğlu pointed out that there is a leap in nationalization in both the high-speed railway and urban lines in the signalization and stated that the life of the nation will change after the coronavirus epidemic, and that they are ready as a ministry, and stated the precautions taken in the train:
“There Will Be Empty Seats For Health Behind The Wagons On Trains”
“The trains will also operate at 50 percent capacity. There will be empty seats for health at the back. Financial and psychological support is needed for the citizen to get used to the new period. It is necessary to make sacrifices to regain them. According to the research, we can not catch the January figures in the airline even this season next year. There are similar figures on the train. The life of the nation will now change. I hope he will get over as soon as possible. ”
Giving the information that the construction sites were rearranged during the epidemic, Karaismailoğlu said, “Very healthy and isolated environments were created. Basic infrastructure investments and strategic investments continue. It also brings a big plus to the economy. When we make the payment, it goes down to the grocery store in the region where that work is done. ”
