Istinye-ITU-Kagithane metro line is going out to tender: Works are being accelerated for the new tram line to be built in Istanbul's tourism and history center, the Historic Peninsula and the Golden Horn. The EIA process of the tram line, whose project work has been completed, has started.
ROUTE HAS BEEN WELL
The route, where 10 thousand 500 people will be transported per hour, will start from Eminönü Square and pass through Küçükpazar, Cibali, Fener, Balat, Ayvansaray, Feshane, Eyüp Sultan and Silahtarağa stops. Trees will be planted between two directions on the line, which aims to reduce vehicle traffic in and around the historical peninsula and is realized with the green tramway concept. There will also be a bicycle path right next to the tram line. The tram line, which will serve in integration with the ongoing rail systems in Istanbul, will be put into service until 2019.
