Van is not among the rail networks to be built in the East: While this expectation of Van, who has frequently voiced the expectation of the Northern Vangolu Railway and called for a tram, continues, important developments are taking place in many provinces in the region. The East and the Black Sea are interconnected by the East and Central Anatolia high-speed train networks, but there is no Van in the projects either in the short or the long term.
Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Ahmet Arslan, in his speech addressing the representatives of non-governmental organizations, explained what was done in the field of transportation during the AK Party governments. In recent weeks Referring to the high-speed railway from Kars, Sivas issues from the agenda Minister Arslan, Turkey and the region, he said they would continue to connecting rail networks. Despite the good news of many regional provinces in this sense, there was no promise expected about Van, which is already waiting for the good news of the Northern Vangolu Railway.
WE WILL NOT COME TO VAN UNTIL KARS, ERZURUM
“We introduced high speed train to our country. Our country is now the 6th high-speed train operator in Europe and the 8th in the world. But we say 'Ankara, Konya, Eskişehir, İstanbul and Kocaeli are not enough for us to be connected'. All our work and goals are as follows; spreading the high-speed train all over the country. That is to take from Kapıkule to Europe after Istanbul and from Ankara to this side. Sivas's construction continues. Erzincan's tender continues. Right after, we are working to bring Erzurum and Kars to high-speed trains. "
WE WILL CALL IN DİYARBAKIR AND MARDIN ...
Arslan pointed out that the train load from Kars to the west should also go to the Black Sea, and said: “The train load from Kars to the west must also go to the Black Sea. Therefore, we will connect to Kırıkkale, Çorum, Samsun and from Erzincan to Trabzon. We will build the railway networks from Erzincan to the south, from Sivas to the south, namely to Elazig, Malatya, Diyarbakır and Mardin. These are complementary to each other. These are very important for us and our country. One of the most important links of these projects is the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) Railway Project so that a train departing from London can go to Beijing. This project is very important for our region and for Kars. I hope we are opening it to business in June. "
