Bandırma Train Line Surveys

We have waited patiently for years, but in recent days, good news has been coming for Bursa's railway connection. In an environment where the Bursa-Yenişehir line, which was blocked in the tunnels after the foundation was laid 6 years ago, caused despair, the complete tender of the Bursa-Osmaneli line on April 3 caused a new excitement.

Prior to…

Deputy Prime Minister Hakan Çavuşoğlu announced that the line will be completed in a short time and test drives will start in 2019 and regular trips will start in 2020.


AK Party Bursa Deputy Hüseyin Şahin, who has been a follower of the project since the beginning, announced that the tender on April 3 was approved and accelerated work will begin soon.

And then Sonra

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan repeated these statements at the Bursa rally on 11 June.


With these statements, the excited wait started again, and TCDD took one more step and went to the study project tender for the 93-kilometer line between Bursa and Bandırma. 2018/270711 In the announcement with registration number, the work period was announced as 540 days.

Tender ...

It will be held on Wednesday, 27 June 2018 at 10.00:XNUMX at TCDD General Directorate in Ankara.


Although it will be made in the near future, the 540-day period means that there is not much hurry, but the step taken is important in terms of showing the goal of not cutting the line in Bursa and connecting to the Aegean.


The train, which we had been waiting to connect to Ankara and Istanbul for years, was also paved the way for the train to reach Izmir via Bandırma.

This line…

In other words, although the Bursa-Bandırma line includes the high-speed train project, it is mostly handled for freight trains. Because, besides the industrial products in Central Anatolia, it is aimed to transport the OIZs in Bursa to the port by rail.

The destination also has the port of 2.

One is the planned connection from Bursa to Gemlik port, the other is the transportation to Bandırma Port via Osmaneli-Yenişehir-Bursa.

In return for the line, there is an Izmir-Bandırma railway connection.


Although the date is not known, the Bursa-Bandırma railway line, whose first step was taken with the study project tender, will be reached from Bursa to Izmir in the future by train.

Gemlik train is also on the program

Deputy Prime Minister Hakan Çavuşoğlu had announced that the expropriations were over, and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that it was at the programme stage.


The hope for the 24-kilometer-long Bursa-Gemlik Railway line to be included in the next year's program has increased.

Along with Eskişehir and Bozüyük, 8 thousand 760 meters of tunnels, 1.600 meters of viaducts, 6 overpasses, 5 underpasses, 18 culverts and transition art structures were planned on the Bursa-Gemlik Railway, which will bring the OIZs in Bursa to the port.

Speed ​​train and freight train stations vary?

In the project… There is a viaduct passing over Mudanya Road in Balat as Bursa Station of the high-speed train. For the freight train, a place near the stream was planned on the ground.


From the very beginning, the Metropolitan Municipality has objected to the freight train station, thinking that the Passage traffic will become inextricable with the entry of trucks and proposes a point close to the highway.

When industrialists made a similar objection, the search for a new station location for the freight train began. If this happens, the high-speed train station will be built on the plain, not on the viaduct.
