Turkey to connect Iran railway with Pakistan link

Turkey is getting ready to build a railway between Kars, Igdir, Aralik and Dilucu to connect its railway network with Iran under the "Istanbul-Islamabad railway project".

The project aims to make the railway transportation between Pakistan, Turkey and the EU more efficient by reducing the train ride between Turkey and Pakistan from 11 days down to 4 days.

The existing railway network in Pakistan and Iran will be rehabilitated and new railways will be built to connect certain destinations.

When the project is completed the Istanbul-Islamabad railway will be a massive network that runs 6,160 kms, with 2,600 kms in Turkey, 2,570 kms in Iran and 990 kms in Pakistan.

The project is estimated to be completed in five years.

State Railway and Port Construction Authority will invite tenders for the construction once the project works for the Kars-Igdir-Aralik-Dilucu connection are completed.
