Ankara-Istanbul travel time between Ankara and Istanbul will be reduced to the Ankara-Istanbul YHT line project is nearing the end. Anadolu Agency, even from the beginning of March, continued the continuous test drive.
TCDD Deputy Director General Apaydin, Piri Reis train even with tests carried out in a statement to the AA correspondent, while driving, he said Turkey's most important high-speed train project of the Ankara-Istanbul YHT line.

Our line between Eskişehir and Istanbul is 266 kilometers long. Piri Reis tests and measures the line throughout the test train construction and certification process. Piri Reis is a train that measures and evaluates nearly 250 test parameters. If there is a non-standard measurement along the Eskişehir-Pendik corridor during the tests, we remove them locally.
The tests are carried out gradually in the form of 60, 80, 100, 120 kilometers, to the maximum speeds allowed by the enterprise. In this line, the maximum operating speed will be 250 kilometers, we conduct the tests according to the speed of 275 kilometers per hour. After these, besides the business tests, our signalization tests, which we call traffic tests, start. After completing these tests, we will start to carry passengers when the parameters at all points for the trips are brought into standards. ”
