  1. The news is very impressive, of course. He doesn't even agree to debate accuracy. However, the most important statistical data in this branch corresponds to which of these numbers correspond to [%]. What is important when and with which occupancy rates, these lines are examined. In this way, not only the normal reader citizen (?) But also the academic students and other students, as well as the engineers and natural scientists other than TCDD employees who are involved in the subject, can also benefit from the data!
    In fact, in all the countries of the World which have activated the YHT line, due to the lacking data and data in the beginning, the results were consistently incorrectly estimated. However, the first ICT was put into operation; Tokaido Shinkansin (J) and especially the first TGV (F) line, starting with the evaluation process, the occupancy rates were found to be above the default expectations. This was confirmed by the ICE-I Berlim-München line, and in other countries (eg Korea), this confirmed information was reinforced.

  2. The line will be made of silifke from the Karamand from the silifke and also from here to the port of Taşucu an alternative transportation from Istanbul to Cyprus should be provided (alternative to the plane)
