The only offer for the Ankara High Speed Train Station, which will be made with the build-operate-transfer model within the scope of TCDD's Ankara-Istanbul YHT Project, came from the consortium of Limak İnşaat-Kolin İnşaat-Cengiz İnşaat.
According to the tender specifications, the winning company will perform the washing facilities, as well as the platforms and train sets, as well as the railway stations, and the railways will lay the TCDD on the platforms. The construction time was determined as 2,5 year.
In accordance with the recommendation of the High Planning Council, TCDD General Directorate revised the project for the integration of Ankara High Speed Train Station to the metro lines. According to this, Ankara Metropolitan Municipality has prepared the etude projects of a new metro line that will be connected to the Çayyolu subway from the General Staff Junction, starting from the stop of Atatürk Cultural Center, which is the intersection point of the Batikent subway and the Kecioren subway.
According to the survey, the metro line between the General Staff Junction and the Atatürk Cultural Center will pass under the 25 meter.
Following the completion of the projects, the General Directorate of Turkish State Railways signed a protocol with the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality for the integration of the Ankara High Speed Railway Station to the metro lines as well as the light rail system Ankaray. The protocol was approved by the Board of Directors of the General Directorate of Turkish State Railways and the Municipal Assembly.
FIRST TENDER FOR THE FIRST YEAR
TCDD announced that it will be tendered for the first time on January 20, 2011 for the high-speed train station, which looks like a 'space base'. The tender was postponed to 22 February 2011 due to the reservations of the companies that purchased the specification that the subway planned to pass under the facility might cause problems.
Due to the demand of the companies in this date, the tender was postponed to 2 March 2011, Limak Construction and (India Based) GMR Infrastructure Joint Venture and İÇTAŞ and Cengiz Construction Joint Venture were offered. With the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model, the project will be constructed with a total investment of 100-150 million dollars and the tender of the project was canceled.
