I would like to thank our ancestors and our ancestors.
Minister of UDH Ahmet Arslan; May Allah be pleased with our ancestors who built our country 150-100 years ago. I gratefully remember everyone who was martyred for our country and served this country. After 1950, the railway was abandoned to its fate. There was no investment in the railroad, which Atatürk cared about, because the railway carries prosperity and hope. 100 years ago, the road where the trains traveled at 120 km was built, and when the road was old, neither maintenance nor renewal was made. So what? Train speeds have been constantly reduced. In 2013, we made the railroad a state policy. We renewed lines that have not touched for 50-100 years. Instead of wooden sleepers, we laid concrete sleepers. Instead of the 49 rail, we laid the 60 rail that we produced in our country. We renewed the 10 thousand kilometer railway. We brought the 4 thousand kilometers electrical line to 6 thousand 300 kilometers. We are not satisfied with this, construction continues for 2 thousand 300 kilometers. While the number of signal lines was 5 thousand kilometers, we brought it to 7 thousand 300 kilometers. There, we continue to work on 2 thousand 300 kilometers. What else did we do? We made our country the 6th high-speed train operator of Europe and the 8th of the world. We put the 1213 kilometers YHT line into operation. Construction of 3380 kilometers YHT, HT and conventional line continues. The black train is delayed, maybe we have come to the period when the high speed train catches. We changed the song. We want to knit our country with a president, head to head, with high quality comfortable railway networks. " he spoke.
