Konya-Karaman line opens for passenger trains

The Konya-Karaman line opens for passenger trains: The line that will reduce the distance between Konya-Karaman and 40 is planned to be opened to passenger trains in the first months of 2016.
In the railway, Ulukışla- Mersin- Adana- Osmaniye- Gaziantep- Sanliurfa- Mardin-Nusaybin route will extend to the first ring of the corridor between Konya-Karaman, while the work is going to be used in the first months of 2016 passenger trains.
200 KILOMETER SPEED
Fast trains will start the journey after completion of electrification and signaling works within 2016. In the 2014, Konya-Karaman line is under construction. Within the scope of the project, while the infrastructure and rail laying works are completed, the line is planned to be opened to passenger trains in the first months of 2016.
High-speed trains are expected to start in 2016 after completion of electrification and signaling work. With the realization of the project, trains will be shifted to 200 double speed operation according to speed.
KONYA-KARAMAN BETWEEN THE 40
In addition, the existing line will be adapted to the high-speed train standard with the completion of the lower and superstructure works on the second line. With the start of the 1 hours 13 minutes, the journey time between Konya and Karaman will be reduced to 40 minutes. The 75 express time is closed on certain dates due to the availability of sufficient time intervals in Konya-Karaman railway construction works and double line high-speed train works.
During this period, the two-track high-speed railway works between Konya and Karaman also continue. Konya-Karaman Railway Line Project is being executed by Gülermak-Kolin Construction Partnership.
The flights between Konya and Karaman with DMU sets will be replaced by Ankara YHT flights. The voyage time will be 75 minutes.
