The Turkish American Chamber of Commerce and Industry said Friday that a Marmaray monorail line will be built to ease travel to the Tuzla Marina.
The line will stretch over 5 kilometers from Istanbul to the coast of the Tuzla Marina, which is expected to grow in popularity as a tourist attraction. The new line is set to be integrated into the Tuzla Marmaray rail line that is currently being constructed.
The rail line will connect the European and Asian portions of the city as part of an ongoing effort to ease congestion. The line should foster economic and social growth within the city.
The rail line is set to be completed on the Anatolian side in 2016.
