When the 'Green Line' is mentioned; In Cyprus, the line separating the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Southern Cyprus comes to mind.

GREEN PASSION EVER CHALLENGES AT ALL CHALLENGES
Although transportation is pleasant on a lush green road, it is not that easy to bring it to life. The ability to germinate in the rail system line requires a series of processes from the foundation laying stage. Firstly; The irrigation, channel and drainage infrastructure required for the growth of the lawn is being prepared. In order to prevent the irrigation from damaging the system, liquid water insulation is applied on the carrier reinforced concrete plate. In addition, perforated drainage pipes are laid and connections are made to drainage manholes, and after the perlite / pumice filling is made, the soil is laid and the germination process is completed. All kinds of precautions are considered from the very beginning to prevent corrosion of the metal materials used. Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality's passion for green thus allows the tens of thousands of square meters of space reserved for transportation to be covered with lush green grass.
Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality Transportation Department Head Arif Emecen said that they created 17.5 thousand 107 square meters of green space along the existing 600 kilometer rail system line. Emecen emphasized that they took green space into consideration during the project phase and made the rail system infrastructure accordingly. With the İldem and university lines to be added to the existing line by the end of this year; He noted that the line length will increase to 35 kilometers and the amount of green areas to 184 thousand square meters.

26 FOOTBALL FIELD SIZE
With the project implemented by the Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality on the rail system line, Kayseri gained an additional green area of 107 thousand 600 square meters. Considering that an average football field is 7 thousand square meters, the green area on the rail system line corresponds to 15 football fields. By the end of the year, with the construction of a new 16-kilometer line on the İldem-Beyazşehir and Üniversite-Talas route, a green area of 78 thousand square meters will emerge. Thus, the green area, which will reach 184 thousand square meters, will become equivalent to 26 football fields.
