Gebze Darica light rail and Izmit tram line extension, Kocaeli

A new 12km long metro line links the districts of Gebze and Darica

Arup is providing a multidisciplinary preliminary and tender design engineering study for a metro line and two tram extension lines for the City of Kocaeli in Turkey. This 12km new metro line will link the city’s main districts of Gebze and Darica, while the 8km tram lines will connect city with its developing neighbourhoods.

We are responsible for determining the locations of the stations and the routes, the operating scenarios, multidisciplinary design of the whole line and depot area, and for the financial and economic feasibility review studies.
