Istanbul railway connects European and Asian continents
The train line connecting Istanbul’s European side suburb Halkalı with Gebze district of Kocaeli province on the east was opened to service with an official ceremony on March 12 with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan upon the completion of a six-year-long renovation process.
The renovation of the train line, which had been closed since 2013 due to construction, was initially planned to be completed in two years. But when the working company gave up the job due to high costs in 2014, the process was postponed, but to be resumed in 2015.
