Why is golden horn tramway named T7 ? Is there any other T lines planned ? (Maybe basaksehir tram? But which others?)

Will we see it in a lifetime. Sounds like they discovered yesterday that there is still work to do. Wasn't there any supervision of the Spanish company?

Both sides (ministry and OHL) made mistakes.
(Its a really long story)

Main cause of the problem was there weren't any Turkish companies in the consortium to show how to do work in Turkey.

you need to click on routes: http://www.turyol.com/tarifeler.asp

But I highly recommend official ferries to enjoy İstanbul: http://sehirhatlari.com.tr/tr/seferl...eleri-338.html

After long waiting, M6 opened last year. Thanks for the opening. Although it is a short line, but very important.

Recently 3 more lines are under construction, M5, M6 & M7, and I think after opening these lines, traffic problem will be solved much. I suggest they start running wider trains in M1 also, i.e. full metro, rather than present light metro.

There are two questions –

1) What kind of current collection will be used on these 3 lines - third rail like M2 & M6, overhead rail like M3 & M4, or overhead wire?
2) Will those be fully underground?

I guess we should wait for your first question.
Except M7 all of them will be fully underground.
M7 will have a viaduct and a station at Cendere Valley. (Kâğıthane or Nurtepe station)

How idiotic was the former government of Istanbul!! Tram route T1 clearly shows that it runs on the same alignment with former old tram system i.e serving Beyazıt, Sirkeci, Aksaray, Eminönü, Topkapı Bahçekapı areas. All these areas are same as it was 60 years ago. Many of them have narrow streets, and new tram runs those streets on completely mixed traffic, just like old system. So it is clear that they have destroyed the once great tram network, simply by lobbying automobile industries. Same lobbying is going in my country India.

Seems like it would make sense to have a spur off the T4 line come east, ending up at the Serkeci station. Never having been there, is there something in between that prevents it?

Tram line will not be extended anymore as I know. But there will be a new metro line starting from Vezneciler to Sultangazi. And route of this metro line will be as same as. But I think they Won't remove Tram line.
