Turkish State Railways (TCDD) revealed the plans for the signalization of the railway network.
TEHRAN UIC RAME: Turkey has unveiled its plans for the signalization of the railway network at national level over the coming years. CBTC is currently being used on the Kazlicesme and Ayrilikcesme line, which will only boost the line's capacity, whereas the 76km long Marmaray line, running between Gebze and Halkali, will use the system from the end of March 2019 onwards. The Polatti and Konya line will make use of the ETCS L2 system, while the ETCS Level 1 system is expected to be the norm in new projects. The system facilitates communication between signaling and loco systems, improving both the security and efficiency of operations.
