Uskudar – Umraniye – Cekmekoy Metro Line is Ready to Open
On December 2016, Prota representatives visited main stations of Istanbul Uskudar – Umraniye – Cekmekoy Metro Line and were informed about the latest development of the construction works.
Designed by Prota, the metro line will become the second metro line of Anatolian side of Istanbul and will shorten the travel time between Uskudar and Cekmekoy to 27 minutes.
The project is also set to break grounds. Driverless metro vehicles will be used for the first time in Turkey. Platform screen doors at stations which is a relatively new addition to metro systems will also be used for the first time.
Construction works of the project are planned to be completed during the early months of 2017.
