We are planning a railway line within the OSB

In order for our industrial establishments to benefit more from this opportunity, we have started to make preliminary studies for the establishment of a railway line in the OIZ, which will help the use of large-scale companies in our Region. According to the feasibility results, we are planning to take new steps in this regard. Hopefully, when we get positive results, we intend to take a step in this regard.”
