Chinese workers contribute to revive silk road with railways in Turkey


From Xinhua:

“Once on the ancient silk road from China to Turkey, camels and horses were the only solutions to exchanges of goods and books.

Now, railways with stronger abilities, especially high speed trains, have been boosting the connection of the East and the West.

From the Ankara-Istanbul high speed line to the East-West high speed line, Chinese workers are making efforts to connect silk road with railways in Turkey.

Ankara, a central Anatolia city surrounded by mountains and hills, has become the home of Zhang Ying, the project interpreter of the Turkish branch of China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (CRCC).

The local CRCC worked over day and night for the construction of Ankara-Istanbul high speed line in Turkey, which connects Ankara, the city of Eskisehir and the metropolis of Istanbul, providing a fast and convenient way for passengers and helping boost the economy of the connected cities.”
