Halic tram, where laying of rails already started, has a fund of TL 250 mn in 2019. An opening within this year would not be suprising.

Tavsantepe-Sabiha Gokcen had started and progressed very fast, but slowed down. Opening in October was announced. The budget of TL 109 mn shows that it could not.
