731 - Nemrut Körfezi - Nemport

Railway reached Nemrut


One of the Nemrut Bay railway projects, which was under construction for a few years, has recently been commissioned.

The Nemrut Bay which contains many piers of many companies has shown a big growth in recent years. There were 4 rail connection projects in the region. One of them was a terminal project in south of bay, just behind the piers and had recently been completed. The new terminal is connected to the closest rail terminal (Bicerova) with a 6-km-long railway.

This terminal area is at the backyard of Habas, Ege Celik, Baticim, IDC and Ege Gubre piers and expected to attract some loads of them to rail.
