According to the Turkish parliamentarian, three states parties should review the budget for the project construction.

“The project may remain unrealized unless new funds are found,” warned the MP, noting that at the moment construction works are not carried out.

In this case, Turkish parliamentarian said that after the introduction of BTK, the volume of traffic on the railways in Turkey will reach 26 million tonnes a year, whereas today the figure is only 6 million a year.
