High Speed Train Line Izmit Urban Crossing Rail and Traves Flooring Process Started: Work continues intensely on the High Speed Train Line, which will reduce the distance between ANKARA and Istanbul to 3 hours and the first test drive will be made on October 29. While the rail laying of the line between Gebze and Izmit was completed to a great extent, the teams started to work on traves and rail laying in the city passage of Izmit.
Although it was reported in the previous statements that the trial voyages would start on September 30 and the regular voyages would start on October 29, the trial voyage could not be made 3 days before due to some problems during the works. As Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, Communication and Maritime Affairs, who came to Kocaeli recently, if nothing goes wrong, the first test drive of the high-speed train will be made on October 29. While the works have been accelerated for the line to reach its test voyage on October 29, the rail laying works between Gebze and Izmit have been completed to a great extent. In the 9-kilometer section, on which 10 tunnels, 22 bridges, 28 culverts were renovated, and 2 new culverts and 56 underpasses were built, the works were mostly completed.
Nowadays, the teams removed the traves, which were lined up like a wall along the line in the city of Izmit, where the old ones were removed, and started laying them under the new line. The Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım, is also expected to come to Kocaeli and receive a briefing regarding these works.
As explained by Kocaeli Governor Ercan Topaca before, when the High Speed Train starts, it will definitely stop at Gebze and Izmit stations. In addition to these stations, the high-speed train will also stop at Sakarya's Arifiye and Pamukova, Bilecik and Bozüyük stations and pick up and unload passengers. At these stations where the High Speed Train will stop, arrangements were made in accordance with the high speed train.
