Lots of things will change in Turkish railway world in 2014. Here are the milestones:
TCDD announced that beginning with today, both Derince and Kosekoy terminals are now open to railway traffic.
Marmaray and Tekirdag Derince Ferry opened. Are we now able to transport our loads between Asia and Europe by rail?
Tekirdag Derince ferry departed with its loads on Tuesday night from Tekirdag Port, and arrived to Derince Port yesterday.
The Rail Freight Corridor No:7 (RFC-7), connecting Czech Republic to Romania and Greece, had started to operate this month.
With the opening of Marmaray, it’s said that a continuous travel by rail, from UK to China is possible. Is it true that Europe is disconnected to China until now? And is it true that with Marmaray it’s now possible?
Atfer several postpones, the Tekirdag Derince Ferry had done its first transport from Derince Port to Tekirdag Port with wagons on board yesterday.
Marmaray project linking two continents -Asia and Europe- by rail, opened today with a big ceremony.
Railway logistic professionals worried a lot till today, but October will probably be a real “fest” for them.
The last announcement of TCDD, although not published officially, says that the ferry will start on 5th of September 2013. The further railway connection will be opened by that time as well. Can these be real?
