11 Metro Lines in the Turkish Capital of Ankara
The Mayor of Ankara, Melih Gokcak, said that the municipality’s plan of action includes the construction of 11 new metro lines and delivering the metro lines to the capital as part of the capital’s main transport project.
The Mayor pointed out that the plan prepared by the municipality, which runs from 2013 to 2018 will include the establishment of a wide network of metro lines, which will reach 600 kilometers.
The project will be implemented in 4 phases. The first phase, which began in 2015, is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. The number of new metro lines will be 11 lines in total.
During the feasibility studies carried out by the Municipality in connection with this project, it has verified a large number of metro lines in the world to choose the most appropriate way to use in the Turkish capital Ankara, where a specialist team made a visit to New York City and received a detailed course about the existing metro lines in the city.
