TURKEY: Eskişehir mayor Yılmaz Büyükerşen inaugurated an extension of the city’s metre-gauge tram network on March 10 at a ceremony at the former eastern terminus of Açelya.

The 3 km eastern extension to Sehir Hastanesi adds four stops. A further extension from Sehir Hastanesi to Sultandere is planned.

The latest extension brings the length of the network to 48 route-km. Further extensions are planned, which would take the network to 60 km once they are completed.
