I find this, at the beginning he shows emergency exit (connection between two tunnels) but don't tell the distance between those exits,

At last metro opened also on Asian side. So currently there are two metro lines m2 & m4. m1 & m3 are light rail lines.

But in many websites, I read that rolling stocks are same on M1, M3 & T4, so like M1, M3 & T4 are also light rail, aren't?

M2 & M4 are definitely metro, because of wide coaches and 3rd rail. However, please confirm.

Which type of vehicle will run in future lines like M5, M6, M7 - wide like M2 & M4? or narrow like M1?

M1 is LRT but gauge is 1435 mm just like others.
M2, M3, M4, M5, M6 and M7 is metro, also 1435 mm.

M2 have third rail, M3 and M4 have overhead rigid catenary.

M5, M6 and M7 will be metro just like M2, M3 and M4.
Bu in my opinion, Levent-Hisarüstü line should be named differently than others,
because it is single line with shorter platforms.

And yes, T4 is LRT. But also have some tram features.

I think Ashis is referring to the width of the wagons (and thus to capacity), not the gauge.
Yes, M1, T1, T4 can exchange wagons amongst each other due to same width and overhead catenary.
M3 and 4 are as wide as M2 and thus high capacity, despite using overhead catenary like a tram.
The Üsküdar metro will have a capacity slightly lower than M2-4, probably due to 6 car trains, rather than 4+4 trains. The metro to Mahmutbey should be large capacity like M2-4. The mini metro to Levent will be mini, but apparently fitted for wide wagons but short (3?4?) I forget.

Any news on M2

Does anybody know the latest rumours concerning an opening date for the extension of M2 to Yenikapi? I was in Istanbul last week and of course had to test the new Marmaray (great experience, and comfortable train!), and in the end I found myself at the new Yenikapi station. Immediately next to the main line station they are building two metro stations to serve as terminus for M1 and M2 respectively. One of these was nowhere near finalisation (apparently due to archeologics), but the other looked almost ready to use. Also, it was virtually crawling with engineers and construction workers when I was there - on a Sunday morning. It looks like something is just about to happen?

M2 may opened in feb 15.

M1 is not ready, maybe opened end of summer.

M2 Taksim to Yenikapi section officially opened

It's done. The southern extension of M2 today offically opened. Following an opening speech by the prime minister, who misued the inauguration for a municipal elections campaign and poured his usual hate speech out against any dissidents in the country, the politicians cut their ribbon for the press. Among those politicians present were some indicted on corruption charges, such as the candidate for mayor of Beyoglu district, Egemen Bagis. The politicians then steered the first metro from Yenikapi to Taksim.
There is little known about how the metro will operate. Apparently for the first months, there will still be no through services from Haciosman to Yenikapi, but the extension will operate as a separate line from Taksim. The intermediate station at Sehzadebasi (apparently due to be named Vezneciler instead) in the center of the old city is apparently not ready. However the station on the middle of the Golden Horn Bridge seems to be operable, according to the TV footage of the first public metro ride.

Dear Moritz Freiherr Hirsch, Effendi. Thanks for these good news. I was in Istanbul not long ago and taken a bit aback by the fact that this line was not yet open. But I was told that the Turkish PM had declared publicly that "the archeologics of this has said our plans five years back". This leads me to a question. Many years back I remember a big open hole in the ground located somewhere between the old University and the Suleiman mosque. All work had stopped because of the bespoke archeological findings. Looking at your map, i would say that the station at Sehzadebasi is not located in exactly the same spot (though I could be wrong). Did they, in the end, have to move the entire station?
