After the completion of 45 km of suburban and train lines between Ayrilikcesme-Gebze and Kazlicesme-Halkali, you will be able to travel from Gebze to Halkali in 105 minutes and Bakirkoy to Bostanci in 37 minutes.
On the train lines that have become a pathway for many years on the problems that arise during the project works, the speed of work has been accelerated these days.
The train line between Haydarpaşa-Pendik, which has been operating since May 29, 1969, was closed after the last run on June 19, 2013.
Due to the renewal work on the line planned to be integrated with the Ankara-Istanbul High Speed Train project, which was opened to the service, the railways were dismantled and it was decided to renew the stations, many of which were in the status of historical monuments.
Should Be Transferred On The Rails
Work in many parts of the line is carried out simultaneously. At the moment, while the new Stations are being built and the grounds to be laid are reinforced, the laying of the rails will be completed after these operations are completed.
On the other hand, some of the remains belonging to the Byzantine period were found in the section where the railway line passes through İdealtepe district in Maltepe during the studies. The works related to the works which are in the middle of the train line continue under the supervision of Istanbul Archeology Museum. It will be apparent in the coming days that the works protected by the museum will change the course of the line.
