TURKEY: Test running started on the Antray light rail extension in Antalya on April 3. The extension to Expo 2016 and the airport is due to open for passenger service on April 22.

This is the first extension of the city’s light rail network since the initial line opened between Fatih and Meydan in 2009. The 15-stop section will run for 15·4 km from Meydan to Expo 2016, with a 2·4 km branch to the airport. Construction has taken 1½ years.
