High Speed Train Project
President İsmail Karakullukçu made a statement on the subject; Arifiye is a residential unit that has been the gateway of Istanbul to Anatolia in terms of railway and road since history. With the High Speed Train project, it was previously on the agenda to pass the line between Geyve and Sapanca and Arifiye was bypassed. However, due to the high cost of the tunnel planned to be built in this region, it was decided to pass the route through Arifiye again in order to open the line, which was closed for thirty months, in the planned period. Thus, our Arifiye will continue to be an intermediate station for our citizens who come and go both to Anatolia and Istanbul, and the Arifiye train station, one of the symbols of Arifiye, will continue its historical mission.
