High-Speed Train (YHT) to carry passengers between Ankara and Istanbul was finalized at Arifiye. The State Railways completed the expropriation studies in the section from Eskişehir to Alifuatpaşa within the scope of the high-speed train line project. Within the scope of the project, in the mountainous region between Alifutpaşa and Sapanca, a 7.5 kilometer tunnel will be constructed.
While the State Railways completed the project for tunnel construction, it was learned that the expropriation works in the region would start soon. It was wondered whether the High Speed Train, which started to operate between Ankara and Eskişehir about 3 months ago, would stop at Arifiye Station. YHT and Istanbul-Ankara transportation is scheduled to go down to 3 hour.
