RAILWAYS IN TURKEY
In the last 15 years the mainline and mass-transit capacity has increased substantially with the introduction of high-speed rail
links between major cities, such as Istanbul, Ankara, Eskişehir and Konya. Until 2023, the length of the whole railway lines will be
more than doubled and 90% of all tracks will be electrified.

which Haco is a shareholder, will be operating on the Marmaray line connecting the European and
Asian parts of Istanbul on a 74km modern railway track including the Bosporus tube crossing.
