The construction of the Black Sea Coastal Road, starting from Samsun, eased the road transportation of Ordu, Giresun, Trabzon, Rize and Artvin provinces, and revitalized the region in terms of both trade and tourism. kazannagged. The transportation of the Black Sea provinces to the Capital Ankara is via Çorum, and the transportation to Istanbul is provided via Merzifon-Gerede via Osmancık. The province of Çorum is already located in the Black Sea Region and especially the northern districts have the characteristic features of the "Inner Black Sea" climate and vegetation.
Çorum has been living with the dream of a "railway" for more than a hundred years, and the desire and expectation of the Black Sea provinces for many years will be connected to the Sarp border gate from the Ankara-Çorum-Samsun-Ordu-Giresun-Trabzon-Rize route and will reach Azerbaijan from Georgia. High Speed Train and freight transportation line… In this case, a railway line that will extend from Ankara to the Caucasus and embrace Turkey with the Central Asian Turkic republics in the second half of the 21st century will make history. kazanwill have been raised.
However, in response to this expectation of the Black Sea provinces, plans are being made for a line that will reach the Sarp border gate via Erzincan. Erzincan was highlighted as the hometown of former Transport Minister and Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, and the Ankara-Yozgat-Sivas YHT line, which will connect to Erzincan in the next stage, was completed. In the calculations, this line is connected to Sarp via Sivas-Erzincan-Trabzon-Rize. So, even if the Ankara-Çorum-Samsun YHT line, whose studies and projects are continuing, is completed for a long time, the Samsun-Ordu-Giresun-Trabzon line will be disabled.
However, in order for the Black Sea Region to have complete railway transportation, the Black Sea provinces up to Trabzon should not be excluded and the YHT project that will monitor the Black Sea coast should not be left to the background. At this point, it seems obligatory for Çorum, Samsun, Ordu and Giresun and other provinces in the Inner Black Sea region to join forces and initiate joint lobbying. Because, as we mentioned at the beginning, this project is an important project that will determine the fate of the Black Sea Region in the second half of the 21st century and in the following centuries. In other words, the responsibilities of the people of the Black Sea towards their children, grandchildren and history. (Source: Çorumhaber)
