3 new metro lines will enter service in Istanbul before the end of 2022

Metro lines are one of the most important means of transportation that contributed to reducing distances and developing transportation networks in Istanbul. The metro network has received great attention from the Turkish government, manifested in the establishment and development of many lines in various areas of the sprawling city.

According to information published by Anadolu Agency, citing the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the ministry intends to introduce three new lines into service before the end of this year.

Not to mention, the three lines whose implementation task was assigned to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure by a decision of the President of the Republic, are part of a network of seven lines with a length of 103 km, where the Ministry has drawn up the necessary plans to introduce them into service before the end of the next year 2023.

What are the three lines and what are the points that connect them and the areas they pass through?
