It will add significant value to Karacabey

A change in the route of the high-speed train line was envisaged for this important project. We have conveyed the opinions of Karacabey Municipality regarding this matter. We presented our suggestions for the interests of our municipality and our district. And in general, we had various consultations on the point of using the line more efficiently.”
