After half a century of neglect, in the last 10 years, the railways were handled again as a state policy, as in the first years of the Republic, and the railway mobilization was initiated. The most important indicator of this is that the railway investment, which was 10 million TL in 2003, increased by 483 times in 2012 and reached 14,5 billion TL.
2003, 58 and 59 have been running 60 with limited financing resources until 2012. Within the scope of transport policies during the period of governments, the Railways became the state policy again. As a result, investment allowance of the railway sector was increased while many other sectors' investment allowance declined. With the prices of 27,5, nearly XNUMX Billion TL has been transferred to the railway sector.
2003 2003 2011 1.085 1950 2003 16 2004 2011 135 XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX Thus, the road construction, which was XNUMX km per year from XNUMX to XNUMX, was increased to XNUMX km per year during XNUMX-XNUMX.
TCDD, the last 10 year renewal and new lines 1.085 Km new road has been made and until 2023 10.000 Km high-speed train line (888 Km was made) and 4.000 Km conventional line construction was planned.
Lines made by lar 10 ”in the last 0 year
Menemen-Aliağa: 26 Km (Total investment amount: 4,9 Million TL)
Kütahya-Alayunt: 10 Km (Total investment amount: 5,6 Million TL)
Tecer-Kangal: 48 Km (Total investment amount: 35 Million TL)
Ankara-Eskişehir Line: 464 Km (Total investment amount: 1,9 Billion TL)
Ankara-Konya Line: 424 Km (Total investment amount: 1,3 Billion TL)
Tekirdağ-Muratlı: 30 Km (Total investment amount: 22 Million)
During 2003-2012, more than half of the highways and conventional road construction in the railway sector, as well as more than half of the railways built before and after the Republic were renewed. Road maintenance and repair teams in the road renewal in order to maintain the daily road maintenance and control more effectively and efficiently in this period by using the latest possibilities of new road maintenance and repair machines were provided.
Parallel to the construction and renewal of railways, modernization of existing railways has been strengthened by signaling and electrification projects as required by today's technology. In this context; Boğazköprü-Ulukışla-Yenice-Mersin, Adana-Toprakkale, Irmak-Karabük-Zonguldak, Pehlivanköy-Uzunköprü-Hudut, Tekirdağ-Muratlı, Bandırma-Balıkesir-Manisa-Menemen, Eskişehir-Kütahya-Balıkesir, Cumaovası-Tepeköy The construction works of signaling and electrification projects are continuing. In the near future, signaling and electrification of Kayaş-Irmak-Kırıkkale-Çetinkaya, Kayseri-Boğazköprü-Ulukışla-Yenice lines will be started.
TCDD cooperated with local authorities for the development of rail system in urban public transport. Egeray in Izmir, Başkentray in Ankara, Marmaray in Istanbul and Gaziray in Gaziantep.
Our technical fleet of vehicle fleet is almost completely renewed and production is given priority in our own factories. 2002-2012 12 pcs High Speed Train Set, 32 pcs Commuter Train Set, 12 pcs DMU Train Set, 89 pcs Diesel Electric Train Set and 4 pcs domestic DMU Train Set were manufactured.
Establishing Logistics Centers
One of the requirements of the combined cargo transportation, 19 pieces of logistics center projects have started to be launched. Samsun, Uşak, Halkalı Logistics Centers were commissioned and the first stages of Denizli-İzmit-Eskişehir and Kayseri were completed. Eskisehir 2. Erzurum 1. The construction works for the whole of Etap and Balıkesir have been initiated and work on other logistics centers has been continuing.
Our historical stations and stations are renovated and modernized according to their identity in order to become a center of attraction of the city life.
High Speed Train Lines
2003 yeni 2011 km new railway was built between 1.085. The construction of the 2.078 km high-speed and conventional railway continues. The establishment of a core high-speed railway network covering the Ankara-Ankara-Afyonkarahisar-Izmir, Ankara-Konya corridors, and the center of Ankara was determined as the primary target.
In this context; Ankara-Eskişehir section of Ankara-İstanbul High Speed Railway Project has been completed and opened on 13 March 2009. Thus, our country has the High Speed Train technology 8 in the World. 6 in Europe. country. Construction works are continuing at Eskişehir-Kocaeli (Köseköy) and Kocaeli (Köseköy) - Gebze regions. In the construction of Eskişehir-Kocaeli (Gebze) section, physical progress was achieved in% 50.
Ankara-Istanbul 3 hour, while the ongoing construction of our other ongoing YHT Ankara-Sivas in the 2014 is continuing work on the completion of the year.
24 2011 passenger transport has been started on the Ankara-Konya High Speed Railway, which was completed for the first time in our country by local contractors with our own engineers and workers.
151 Year Dream "MARMARAY"
MARMARAY will provide a long-term solution to the transportation problem of Istanbul and the Asian-European continents will be connected with a continuous rail system under the sea. Istanbul is one of the few cities in the world with its structure; It will have a modern, safe, comfortable and durable urban rail system. A high number of commuter trains will be able to travel more comfortably and 4 annual dream will be realized.
In MARMARAY, whose construction works are continuing rapidly; All 11 tube elements were placed on the sea floor at a depth of 40-60 m, and the 1.387 m long tube tunnel was completed, providing a roundtrip connection with the land tunnels between Europe and Asia. The first part of the project is aimed to be put into service in 2013.
The 250 high speed train set capable of 12 km / h speed was provided for high-speed rail transport. In addition, the supply of 300 speed train sets, capable of speeding 7 km per hour, is still in progress.
The Ankara-Sivas, Ankara-Bursa and Ankara-Izmir High Speed Railway projects, which constitute the East-West corridor of our country, are still under construction. The project preparations for the Sivas-Erzincan High Speed Railway, which are included in the investment program, are ongoing.
In addition to the construction of High Speed and Conventional Railways, all roads were reconstructed and 2003 km road was renewed between 2011-6.455 and 60 kg / m rails and B 70 type concrete sleepers were used for the first time.

Domestic Railway Industry
We cooperate with the domestic and foreign private sector for the development of the forward railway industry. HACON in Sakarya (Turkey), ASAS (Turkey), EUROTEM partnership with HYUNDAI-TCDD rail vehicles factory was founded. Marmaray sets are still produced in the facility. In cooperation with TCDD, Fast Train Scissors Factory (VADEMSAŞ), Erzincan Rail Fasteners Factory and Sivas High Speed Train Concrete Traverse Factory were established in Çankırı. For YHT lines
KARDEMİR produces rail.
Strategic cooperation was made with the Machinery Chemical Industry Institution in order to produce the wheel sets that were supplied from abroad until now in Kırıkkale.
As a result of the efforts of the establishment of the local railway industry, foreign dependency will be eliminated and our country will be exporting its products in the region.
2023 targets of TCDD 10. It is determined in the Transportation Council. Important decisions were made in this Shura and the transportation system was mapped. In this context, 2023 billion dollars of 350 billion dollars will be made to the transportation sector until 45 will be made to railways.
In this context; - Construction of a new high-speed rail network of 2023 thousand kilometers by 10. 2023 thousand kilometers of 5 to be constructed in the conventional new line. Some of these are planned to be implemented by build-operate-transfer (BOT) model.
As a result, our Republic 100. When we reach the targets in 2023 year, our country will have a modern railway system which is the dream of Great Leader Atatürk.
