The project is one of Istanbul's most ambitious urban planning projects with Yenikapı becoming the city's major public transportation hub.

"Once having arrived in Yenikapi, one will able to reach every point of our city by rail and public transportation systems," says Kadir Topbaş, Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. "The new centralization brought on by an increase of accessibility in Yenikapi has the potential of influencing the seaway, airway and highway dynamics of the metropolis as well as urban development and renewal at a metropolitan scale."
