Regional Manager Sebahattin Eriş stated that the Izmir-Ankara high speed train project will be divided into two after the Kemalpaşa district of İzmir, one arm will go to İzmir and the other will go to Manisa. Eris made examinations at level crossings in Barbaros District in Manisa. Answering journalists' questions about the high-speed train project here, Eriş noted that the Izmir-Ankara high-speed train has three stages and will cost about 6,5 billion liras.

This is Turkey's biggest project that the transfer of one of Accession, the speed of the train was the highlight of this line will be up to 250 kilometers.
Stating that the studies that were previously considered as double roads between Menemen and Manisa were revised with a broader vision, the 3rd Regional Director Eriş said, “We are designing the three roads between Menemen and Manisa. We will have to cross the Gediz River to the opposite shore, because those areas are very curved. We will probably cross the opposite shore with a viaduct and a tunnel. We will build a new railway between Manisa and Menemen, which will be available at a speed of at least 160 kilometers. We will not cancel the existing railway, we will use it as a freight line. ” said. Sebahattin Eriş explaining that they have decided to make a double-line between Menemen and Manisa before, “We made ground studies, we drew the application projects but then we were asked to think with a bigger vision. It was instructed that there would be three lines for high-speed trains and even four lines for some places. A high-speed train will pass from here, it may be a brand new route. We have huge investments in Manisa. We built between Manisa and Salihli, we renewed the road. The signal and electrification contract of the Menemen-Manisa-Akhisar-Bandırma line was signed for 484 million liras. These are international tenders. ” spoke in the form.
Eris said that each accident was sad, but after the train accidents, the headlines, "Train car mowed," were thrown in the press. Emphasizing that railway transportation is a form of transportation caused by friction, therefore it can only stop five times its speed, “A train arriving at a speed of 100 kilometers has no chance to stop before 500 meters after braking in case of any danger. The vast majority of accidents also stem from this. Our citizens think the train like an automobile with ABS braking system. Friends, the vehicle that comes and hits the train is a road vehicle. We don't crash into the vehicle. We have to go from road to road to crash. These are incorrect information used in the press language. It would be good to correct this style of news. Today, it is forbidden to construct 5 kilometers from the railway in European countries. ” said..
