Karaman High Speed Train project has been canceled: Wandering documents were misunderstood. The High Speed Train project was canceled.
The Ministry officials we met with the increase of rumors that the High Speed Train project in Karaman has been canceled, or that the Konya Mersin high-speed train line will go directly to Ereğli without stopping in Karaman, the Ministry officials stated that this did not reflect the criticism.
The point of the rumors is the paperwork you see in the picture below. Documents; Konya-Karaman-Ulukışla line was canceled. However, the former project was canceled, the current one-line between Konya-Karaman-Ulukışla 2 error was removed and the project was reinstated because it was put into practice.
Minister of Transport, Communications and Maritime Affairs Bayram Şahin, who made a statement to Karamansonsoz.com regarding the issue; ”High speed train works between Konya-Karaman-Ulukışla continue at full speed. There is no such thing as a cancellation.
It was an canceled alternative project.
The current single line has been increased to two and the construction of the high-speed train line has started and continues. In fact, a station building will be built in Karaman with the new Seljuk Architecture. The canceled project was an old project. He predicted a new line. However, in the meetings held afterwards, the idea of creating a high speed train line by increasing the existing line to two became dominant. This was found to be more reasonable as we already have expropriated land. Its cost will be lower. Then that old project was canceled. "
