Turkey is building a high-speed railway line to Bulgaria, according to Turkey’s Transport Minister Lutfi Elvan.
Elvan informed that the rail line would connect Istanbul to the Kapikule border crossing point and would run through Edirne. He made clear that the tender would be held in 2015.
Elvan said that the mega projects on which Turkey was working included the North Marmara Highway, the Third Bosphorus Bridge, and the two-track railway line that would run across the bridge.
He announced that the rail connection to Greece was also being improved and that railway tracks were being thoroughly renewed.
