Transport Minister Binali Yildirim said that by completing the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line at the end of the year, trains can be reached from China to Europe. Expressing that the freight transportation by train and then passenger transportation will become possible on the train line, Minister Yıldırım said, “With the completion of this railway, a direct connection is made between Europe and the Far East via the Caucasus. This project not only Azerbaijan's, Turkey's, not Georgia's project. This project is a joint project of the Far East, Central Asia and Europe. When we do not complete this link, the 'Silk Road' will be incomplete. There were some delays in the project that we did not desire. We have taken measures. As of the end of 2016, we will have run the trains here. ”
FIRST FROM MARMARAY
Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, at the opening of the Meeting of the Ministers of Transport of the Cooperation Council of Turkish-Speaking Countries, that a train departing from China could pass through Caspian and Anatolia, from Marmaray to the Balkans and west of Europe, a few years later.

BRING THE BRIDGE
Minister Binali Yıldırım asked the question about the transition price of the 3rd bridge, which is expected to be $ 3 for cars and $ 15 for heavy vehicles. Every service has a price. If you have money, you make it from the budget and subsidize it. If not, you do it in partnership with the private sector, it comes into play as soon as possible. This project is a bridge built in record time in the world. With the introduction of the bridge, Istanbul will save 3 billion TL in time loss and fuel consumption in traffic jams. When you consider this, the bridge will be free within 2 years. It is the most expensive service, ”he said.
