Eurasia Rail: only in the Eurasia Region and one of the world’s 3 largest Rolling Stock, Infrastructure & Logistics exhibition…
ITE Turkey Transport & Logistics Group Director Semi Benbanaste: “Rail systems all over the world are gaining more and more importance as they represent fast, economical, environmentally friendly, safe, and modern systems. While the countries, the European countries, in particular, continue their investments in order to increase modernization and carrying capacity of the railways, there are significant targets and investments following the same direction in our country. Within this framework, an ambitious target aiming to increase the railway network in our country to 25 thousand kilometers has been set. High-speed rail investments are of particular importance in achieving this goal and we aim to connect 42 cities where 77% of the country’s population live using high-speed rail network by 2023. According to the plan, 3 thousand 500 kilometers of this network will be dedicated to the speed railway lines while 8 thousand 500 kilometers will be high-speed railway lines. In addition to that, we are planning to reach a total of 25,000 km railway length in 2023 by building 13,000 km of new railways and 1,000 km conventional railways. On the other hand, there are also targets of renewing 4,400 km of railway, completing the renewal of all lines, increasing the railway conveyance rate to 10% for passengers and 15% for freight. We aim to support the sector in reaching these valuable targets with Eurasia Rail, in which we have brought together the leading sector representatives of the world since 2011.”
Pointing out that Eurasia Rail is the only railway exhibition in the Eurasia region and the third largest railway exhibitions in the world, Benbanaste gave information about the exhibition to be held in April. Benbanaste stated that: “Eurasia Rail, which helps professional visitors to meet the top producers of the industry and gives them the chance to closely follow the innovations, is preparing to become a very productive platform for the railway industry as it does every year. There will be important participants from countries such as Germany, France, Czech Republic, China, Italy, and Russia. In fact, France Office of the Commercial Counsellor has announced that it will support only Eurasia Rail in Turkey in 2019, which is a very important decision. In addition to these important developments, leading companies of the industry such as Siemens, Alstom, Yapıray, Ministry of Transport, Turkish State Railways (TCDD) and its subsidiaries, Bozankaya, Bombardier, Knorr Bremse, Metro Istanbul, Metro Izmir, Caf, Kardemir, and Aselsan have approved their participation in the exhibition.
