The good news came from the Transport and Infrastructure Minister. Apparently, Istanbul, which is the grand metropole of Turkey, is adding two new subway lines to available ones. The new subway line is announced to be nearly 13km.
According to the announcement of Minister Adil Karaismailoglu, the first of the lines will be situated on the Anatolian side of Istanbul and is planned to be reaching from the neighborhoods of Altunizade to Camlica.
Remember that the Uskudar-Cekmekoy line is the first fully automated subway system in Turkey. This line is stretching over 20km and consisting of 16 stops. Actually, Marmaray, which is another grand transportation system running under Bosphorus and connects the European continent to the Asian continent, is also situated within this district. As to the announcement of Karaismailoğlu, this new line will be connecting Sirkeci and Kazlicesme neighborhoods, which are both located on the European side.
However, these are not the only additions to the transportation system; the residents of Istanbul have seen another one spanning from Mecidiyekoy to Mahmutbey. With more lines waiting to be complete, the city will be fully covered with easy transportation, and when the current projects are complete, it is expected to reach 342km.
