Küçükyalı railway station

Küçükyalı railway station (Turkish: Küçükyalı istasyonu) is a railway station in Maltepe, Istanbul. It was a station on the Haydarpaşa suburban commuter line from 1951 to 2013 and is the westernmost station in Maltepe. As of December 2017, the station platforms are being rebuilt and expanded for the Marmaray commuter rail system expected to open in late 2018.[1] Before its demolition, Küçükyalı had two side platforms with two tracks. The new station will have an island platform with two tracks as well as a third track for express trains.
