Do all trains do the full OSB-Törekent-Koru route, or are some still running only along their respective lines?

But for some unexplained, yet stupid reason; Ankaray's Söğütözü extension is not STILL opened!

It's just a damn few hectometer can be connected with the Çayyolu-Koru line!

The strangest part of it that we know all of the extension works except signalization had been done years ago. But neither our past our current mayors told anything about it nor the mayor candidates. Apparently everyone in the city except a few people pretending that this extension is never existed and never been announced.

Recently they have also introduced new rolling stocks.

I have some questions -
3) Why they are not conversion the Ankaray light metro to full metro? The infrastructure is ready. If they convert the line, heavy metros could serve more peoples. I want to know about this suggestion.

4) What is the latest news about M5? I heard this line will also be a heavy metro.
That new line is actually a renovation of commuter (suburban) line used since mid 1920s.
As for the 3rd question, Ankaray's upgrade could be chalenging as their tunnels are tighter than Metro lines. But it would be OK if connected with Keçiören line (It has a stub wye between Tandoğan and Maltepe, planned to connect a Keçiören extension of Ankaray before Metro line)

Even Ankaray's rolling stock is different from Metro's.

And by the 4th question, do you mean the Airport line?

They should buy more of those Bombardier instead of some barmy Chinese stuff.
