We completed this tunnel in 45 days. How railways and highways can be projected, operated together and finished zamWe are here to show you how big a job it is that will become the transportation axis of the city and solve the transportation problem. We are working very fast. How many railways exist in a country, in cities, this is an indicator of development. We are also building the infrastructure to increase them. This tunnel under the Silkroad is very important. 25 kilometers of the 5-kilometer line will be underground, which was our main vein. While everyone was waiting and waiting during this pandemic period, Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality continued these great works without delay. There was an opportunity here. I would like to thank our Minister of Transport and Infrastructure for their support ”.
