  1. This idea is nice but incomplete. The two-way Edirne-Uzunköprü-Keşan-Gelibolu-Eceabat line, which will relieve the burden of Istanbul and Izmit and connect the Aegean region to the Balkans, should be built and crossing Çanakkale with a 2-way train bridge over Ezine-Ayvacık-Edremit, Bandırma-Basmane and Balıkesir-Kütahya must be connected to the lines. In addition, if a two-way railway is laid on the axis of Çanakkale-Biga-Bandırma-Karacabey-Bursa-İnegöl-Bozüyük, it becomes like a creme bread kadayıf.
