Adana metro: diagram, photo, description
More than one and a half million people live in the Turkish city of Adana, and the problem with urban congestion has become one of the main problems in the work of public transport. That is why, in 1988, the authorities began designing the Adana metro, which was supposed to significantly relieve the city's highways. In 1996, construction began, but it was suspended several times due to funding problems. In 2009, the first stage of the Adana metro was commissioned. On the 8.5-kilometer route, eight stations were opened for the entry and exit of passengers..
Today, the Adana metro consists of one line with a track length of 13.5 kilometers. Subway passengers can use 13 stations. Part of the Adana metro tracks pass underground, the rest are made by the overhead-flyover method. Every day, the Adana metro is capable of receiving up to 750 thousand passengers. On the diagrams, its route is indicated in red. Trains reach a maximum speed of 80 km / h.
