What can we have in fact? Which type along with what degree of cargo has become transported through this season? Neither the federal government nor the railroad have publicized any info on this trouble. As per the Turkish government, during the first year, as many as 116 trains transported 110,000 a lot of cargo. Reported by specialists, this is usually a tiny volume for the project, which financed exactly the Georgian section ?775 million USD.
The countries working in the project haven\’t introduced a joint tariff policy, and trains run at really low speed. These 4 elements are believed to be for being key defects for that route. Based on analysts, the Trans-Asia corridor, which crosses Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, will be the main competitor for your Baku-Tbilisi-Kars section.
A high-speed Trans-Asia route might be more profitable, and will be much more so before long, as ?the velocity will go nearly 200km/hour, along with its competitive capacity raises. It has to be noted that 120km/h could be the highest speed ?for any Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railroad. However, you can find one component that leads analysts to presume the current situation may change. The problem is of course the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
According to specialists, in case the current situation remains unchanged ,or it worsens before long, area of the Trans-Asia cargo may very well be redirected southern area Caucasus.
At this stage, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railroad transports two kinds of cargo to the west: cargo for Turkey and cargo for Europe.
Since cargo transport is going to be limited via the Marmarai Tunnel (the tunnel supplies mainly for ?cargo transport for six hours, when the Istanbul subway line is closed), and also this cargo is going to be focused on Europe in the seaports of Turkey. Consequently, cargo flow to Europe will miss Georgian Seaports.
According to specialists, for countless years Georgia should never be ready to receive considerable revenues from cargo transit. The problem may change if cargo transit volume grows. Initially, the annual cargo turnover are going to be 6.5 million tons, in your long-time the figure may rise to 17 million tons.
Railroad specialist David Gochava noted the fact that Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway corridor will bring advantages to Georgia only in one case: if Georgian Railway carries out transit from Akhalkalaki to ?Turkish railways. However, Gochava says that it really is questionable whether or not the current control over Georgian Railway will be able to undertake this project.
The total entire Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway is 826 kilometers, together with a 503 km section in Azerbaijan, a 255 km section in Georgia and 68 kilometers in Turkey. Initially, this route is anticipated to hold 1 million passengers. In accordance with design calculations, this figure will rise to a few million passengers by 2030.
