A new YHT and suburban train station is built next to the existing station in the area where the historical Ankara Station is located, integrated with each other and other metro systems.

“Travel time will be shorter with the YHT set between Başkentray and Ankara Sincan. YHT travel time, which is 19 minutes on the existing rail line between Ankara and Sincan, will be reduced to 9 minutes by decreasing 10 minutes. This reduced time will reduce the travel time of YHT between Ankara and Eskişehir to 1 hour and 5 minutes. YHT duration between Ankara and Konya will also decrease to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Pedestrian underpasses for passenger transportation to the stops are planned in two directions. Indoor areas, open and closed area lighting systems, visual formatting and greening works will be carried out for the passengers to wait in the platforms. Suburban stations will be made available to citizens with disabilities. The suburban station will be built for the handicapped citizens, by constructing escalators and elevators, just like in the metro.


TCDD General Manager Karaman stated that when the Başkentray Project is completed, all the railway lines will be put to the tender as in the subway, and the entire existing railway corridor between Kayaş-Ankara-Sincan will be put into the tender. In the regions where the settlements are dense, sound curtains will be placed in the biddings. Thanks to these sound curtains, the noise of the trains, which will travel every 2.5 minutes, will be absorbed without creating environmental pollution. ”


According to the information given by TCDD General Manager Süleyman Karaman, closed station areas will be created in Sincan, Lale, Etimesgut, Hippodrome, Yenişehir Mamak and Kayaş, where passengers can easily meet their needs such as food and book newspapers.

Ankara Station and its surroundings will be reorganized and the new YHT station and Suburban station, which will be constructed with the existing Ankara Station, will be connected by underpasses and overpasses. With the Başkentray project, integration with other metro systems will be provided in Ankara Station. Namely, there will be a connection with Ankaray in the direction of Maltepe Tandoğan at the Ankara station with Keçiören metro.

Within the underground passage to be constructed within the scope of Başkentray Project, a walking pass system will be provided and a comfortable transition will be provided.

From the exit of the Yenişehir train station in the direction of Sıhhiye Bridge, passengers will be transported to Batıkent Metro Sıhhiye station with an opening and closing of about 130 meters. In the passage, walkway systems and lighting systems were installed in the tunnel to ensure comfortable access of the passengers.

As a result of the interviews with the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality, the General Manager of TCDD stated that they had previously abandoned the idea of ​​demolishing and rebuilding the Marşandiz Bridge on the existing Anatolian Boulevard, but that they had decided to demolish and rebuild the bridge in the following situation.

“The Celal Bayar Boulevard vehicle underpass Gazi AOÇ Vehicle overpass, which is being constructed by the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality, will be taken to the south by passing through our line as a verevli (inclined) road near TIGEM, between verevli (inclined) Gazi and Marşandiz stations. Şaşmaz highway overpass will be built by the Metropolitan Municipality.

The construction of Lale underpass, which is one of the highway underpasses, has been completed by the General Directorate of TCDD. The level crossing at the entrance of the station is designed as an overpass at the request of the General Staff and will be built within the scope of the Başkentray project. ”
