Ineco will continue to work to connect the Mediterranean and the Black Sea
The Turkish Ministry of Transport has renewed its trust in our company for the supervision of the modernisation of the railway line between Samsun and Kalin.
Ineco, in consortium with the Turkish company UBM and the consultancy firm Mott MacDonald, will continue to develop this railway route in Turkey in order to improve connections between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, boost the development of regional transport and reduce road accidents.
The line has 378 kilometres of non-electrified single track. With its modernisation, it will feature the necessary signalling and telecommunications to reduce travel times and increase frequencies. The works include the monitoring and control of the modernisation of the line's infrastructure, superstructure and facilities. Among others, the extension of the tracks, rehabilitation of tunnels, improvement of platforms and stations, and new signalling and train protection systems, including the ERTMS Level 1 system, will be carried out.
