Construction of new metro line starts between Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey

Construction of new metro line starts between Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey :The construction of a new metro line between Mecidiyeköy and Mahmutbey on the European side of İstanbul began on Sunday with a groundbreaking ceremony, bringing the length of the metro system currently under construction to 110 kilometers.

At the ceremony, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the metro system, which was only 45 kilometers long in 2004, had been brought to 141 kilometers with the recent addition of the Marmaray underwater metro line connecting the two sides of İstanbul. “We are also working on a split-level tube under the Bosporus. With the addition of the 18-kilometer-long Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey line, the length of metro system that has yet to be completed in İstanbul is 110 kilometers,” according to Erdoğan.

The metro line will start in Mecidiyeköy and will reach Mahmutbey following the Kağıthane and Alibeyköy route. “This route will be integrated with İstanbul’s metro line and will later be extended to Beşiktaş and Kabataş, enabling people to have an uninterrupted ride between the city centers and their homes. We estimate that a million people use the line each day and the duration of the distance between Mecidiyeköy and Mahmutbey will be reduced to 27 minutes. People riding the metro from Mahmutbey will be able to travel to Yenikapı in 39 minutes, to Üsküdar in 48 minutes and to Sabiha Gökçen Airport on the Anatolian side in 95 minutes,” the prime minister explained. In the meantime, 201 new buses equipped with the latest technology and access for the disabled were put in service, and Erdoğan said the number of such buses will be increased to 1,500 in the near future.
