The construction of Adapazarı Karasu Port Ereğli Bartın Connection Line Railway Project, which has been tendered for 2010 million TL in November 320, which will connect the Western Black Sea to the Marmara and Central Anatolia regions, and is aimed to be completed in 7 years, has not been operating for about 2 years. The 50-kilometer Adapazarı-Karasu Railway Line in Sakarya, which has been claimed to be well-grounded, has not been completed yet. While the Adapazarı –Karasu Port line had to be completed in October last year, only 35 percent of the railway connection to the town of Söğütlü was made with the tender price. The bridge legs, whose foundations were laid, were left to rot in the swamp. It was suggested that the Court of Accounts started an investigation about the money spent by the company that received the tender.
