    The Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Turkish Transportation Minister Binali Yildirim visited the Marmaray Project platform in Istanbul together on Thursday. Yildirim said that Marmaray Project (rail system connecting European and Asian sides of Istanbul) was a very important project, noting that Turkey wanted to carry out similar projects. Yildirim added that his government aimed to cooperate with Japan in the area of ship construction.

    The Project provides an upgrading of the commuter rail system in Istanbul, connecting Halkali on the European side with Gebze on the Asian side with an uninterrupted, modern, high-capacity commuter rail system. Marmaray Project is one of the major transportation infrastructure projects in the world at present. The entire upgraded and new railway system will be approximately 76 km long.
