The biggest problem is the insistence of China to do it piece by piece, Minister Yıldırım, the Chinese, whom he said they are negotiating hard, are in the single line negotiation ...
Transport Minister Binali Yıldırım stated that they are planning a single high-speed train line from Edirne to Kars, and that there will be lines that will cut it vertically in the project, and that they have offered China to build the line together.
According to the news in the Akşam newspaper, Yıldırım stated that their priority is the high-speed train and said, “We are meeting with the Chinese to make them jointly. Let's spread the high-speed train lines that cut this line perpendicularly to points such as Trabzon, Adana and Erzincan, let's build them together with the Chinese. You provide the financing ”he said.
Stating that the project is 35 billion dollars, Yıldırım said, “The Chinese are waiting for the detailed projects to become clear. However, they propose to make high-speed train lines piecemeal, not as a whole. We will put more effort on it. ”
