Do you have the exact closure date of the Samsun line, I am traveling to Turkey later this year and was planning to travel from Sivas – Samsun- Amasya on the 27th April and then Amasya- Sivas on the 28th April, Thank you for any information that you can provide.
Not yet.. But the tender has not been completed. Since line will be open in the first 6 months of consruction, you can be sure that line will be open in April-May.. Enjoy your travel..
Hi Onur. I saw that the starting of works was postponned for September 2015. Do you have any idea, at least the Contract was signed or was postponned also? Thank you.
Hi Cristian. The contract was already signed as far as I heard. They are told to be waiting for completion of current transport contracts on line.
Hi Onur. Thank you very much for your answer. I was working on Adana south Contract, so maybe this one will be good also. See you.
I was wrong. The contract was signed yesterday with a ceremony..
Hi Onur. Can you provide me, please, a link, with this Ceremony, from a newspaper, something? Thank you very much. Best regards.
Coming in a few minutes.. Stay with us.. 🙂
Tesekurler Onur. I understood that even the ‘Consultant’ for the Project was selected!! 😉 Do you have also some ‘news’? Best regards, Cristian
Hi Onor. I saw in the ”Railway journal” the announcement you said, but this was just for ”financeing” was not the ”proper” Contract with the ‘”Construction” Consortium!! Probably is to be expected later till September as you mentioned! All the best, Cristian
Hi Christian. Check the picture of following link: http://www.tcdd.gov.tr/samsun-kalin-demiryolu-modernizasyonu-icin-imzalar-atildi+h1162 In background, it says: Signature ceremony of works contract for modernization of Samsun-Kalin railway project. Closure is expected to come 4 months after start of works.
Hi Onur. Thank you very much for informing me. That’s clear the ”construction” Contract was signed probably in the same day was ”secured” founding from EU money, OK? Best regards.
