On the other hand, the fact that our country has become a center of attraction for port investments and the construction of ports that allow the large cargo ships to berth will also trigger these increases positively. Road transport has always been a predominantly used type of transport compared to other modes of transport. The road transport network has developed from the past to the present, and the road transportation is preferred for providing flexibility in terms of transportation.

However, it is a fact that there is no uninterrupted railway line between the eastern and western ends of our country. Railway transportation, which is an environmentally friendly and economical transportation type, stands as a target to be realized for our country. Çevre
