Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Binali Yildirim, Ankara-Istanbul High Speed Train Line can be opened in February, he said.
Total 9 will stop at the YHT line, passengers from Ankara to Istanbul, respectively Polatli, Eskisehir, Bozüyük, Bilecik, Pamukova, Sapanca, Izmit and Gebze will pass through Pendik. This trip will last for 3 hours.
The 3 kilometer HR line will reduce the journey between two cities to 533 hours, allowing citizens to travel between Ankara and Istanbul at a cheaper price. Following the Ankara-Eskişehir line, the share of 10 with 78 will increase to XNUMX.
Ankara-Istanbul YHT line will be integrated to Marmaray with the suburban line at Pendik. Thus, uninterrupted transportation from Europe to Asia will be provided.
COMPETITIVE IN AIRCRAFT
Travel with YHT between Ankara and Istanbul is expected to be preferred more than the plane. Delivering the advantages of air travel, HRCs are a bit expensive for their tickets, and cheaper than airplane tickets.
A flight from Ankara to Istanbul needs to arrive at Esenboga Airport an average of 45 minutes before departure. Traveling to the airport takes about 45 minutes by public transport, and after the trip to Sabiha Gökçen by plane, the exit from the airport can reach 1 hours. Considering the average 1 hour from Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Kadikoy, the journey starting from Ankara by plane reaches the average 3-3,5 hour. However, with the addition of Istanbul traffic and unpredictable aircraft delays, this period may increase to 4 hours on some flights.
When the transportation period from Ankara to Istanbul is examined by YHT, the transportation to Ankara Railway Station, which is integrated into the light rail system in the capital, takes approximately 20 minutes. The last YHT station in Istanbul will take the 3 watch to Pendik and the arrival time to Pendik from Kadikoy will take 40 hours with YHT if the commuter takes approximately 4 minutes.
As a result, competition between the two modes of transportation is foreseen in multiplying the distance between Ankara and Istanbul.
