Experts who stated that the road, which passes through mountainous terrain such as Karadağ and Çamlıbel and has 37 tunnels on it, did not change the route seriously and only the infrastructure was improved and said, “The railway is not like a highway. Depending on the road holding ability of the vehicle on the highway, you can enter the bends more quickly than determined. It is risky, you may not be driven away, but there is no such thing in railways. God bless you with a speed of two kilometers or more.
