Completed and ongoing High Speed Train Projects: When the Republic was established, 4000 km.demirway was taken from the Ottoman Empire. In the first 20 of the Republic, the facilities of today's construction technology, ie manpower and digging shovel substructures were built in the time when there were no construction machines. 4000 km. The way was more done. That's where our railways were. For exactly 60 years, our State has pushed the railway aside. No new road is made, the old parts of the old worn out parts of the renewed, even repair and maintenance of our state was forced to do.
In this period of pause and regression, our railways came to an out of date. 1-2 on the highways in some areas of the distance taken by train at the time 5-6 hours. 90 this year. I will celebrate the year of the Republic of our railways around 46 in the year I serve, I live in my life outside the railroad ı
I'm ashamed to say it's a railroad.
In 2003 the importance of the railway was noticed. The closure of the gap was initiated. After a short time, construction of High Speed Train started. And the first project was implemented between Ankara and Eskişehir and was completed in 6 as a result of 2009 annual work.
