The Marmaray project is of great significance, connecting both the Asian and European continents as a continuation of the historical Silk Road, Transport Minister Binali Yıldırım said yesterday at the International Silk Road Congress.
“Turkey has always been at the center of the Silk Road. We are quite aware of our responsibility. In that vein, we strived to complete the historical Marmaray project, implementing unprecedented engineering technology. This project connects Asia with Europe, to restore the once internationally important Silk Road,” he said.
