Providing information about the replacement of TCDD Diyarbakır-Kurtalan rails, Batman State Railways team chief Hakim Sarilmaz stated that they have started work for 3 months and that the works will be completed within 3 months. Stating that he continues his work with a team of 130 people, Sarılmaz said, “It is a work covering 2013 kilometers within the scope of the Railways 2014-120 project. When the work is over, rail transport will compete with road transport and faster trains will arrive in the region. ” Calling the citizens, Sarılmaz said that this project, which will be completed in 6 months, will bring more services, asking everyone to protect these services and works.
Citizens also stated that they would arrive in Diyarbakır, which they had hardly reached in 2 hours before, after this study. The region and Batman will be revitalized with 70-year-old rails and new trains to follow. ”
