TURKEY: Konya Metropolitan Municipality has finalised plans for a two-line metro network in the city. To be built in three stages, the network would connect the city’s main universities and hospitals.
Plans for a metro were originally published in 2015, and a feasibility study started in November 2016. Geological surveys are now underway, and construction is scheduled to begin in the autumn. The project is being funded by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs & Communications
This is surprising. Original plans for Konya Metro date back to the 1980s and have been scrapped in favour of tram. Obviously it´s a city with more than one million inhabitants, so a metro should make sense.
