Another big project that is so important is the Ankara-Istanbul YHT project, 533 kilometers. Even if this valley is spoken, it explains the work done here. Our goal is to make the line ready on October 29, but we have already mentioned it, let me express it here too, so don't be confused. We will not open on the same date, we will not open.

Then, it is the opening date, which is not to be said 'September 30, October 29 or what happened'. The opening date is currently within this year.
