According to the findings of the TCA, the Ankara-Sivas high-speed train line in the Yerköy-Sivas section instead of the final project, without adequate research and ground drilling surveys were carried out with the preliminary project tender.

In 2008, with an offer of 840 million liras, the tender kazanAfter signing the contract, the company made changes that would seriously affect the project in terms of technique and cost. With these changes made with the approval of TCDD, the route was changed in 251 kilometers of the 189 kilometer line. Tunnel lengths were increased from 10,6 km to 41,9 km. It was decided to build a 183-meter railway bridge on the parts that are filled with filling. Cut-and-cover tunnels were built in the cut sections due to the fault zone. Although the company spent 840 million liras in the tender, its contract was terminated when it only finished half of the line. The remaining 108 kilometers of the line were tendered again. With 3 completion tenders held in a row, the cost of the line increased by 1 billion 15 million liras, from 840 million liras to 1 billion 855 million liras.

The unit price has quickly completed high business items. As such, he spent only a percent of his work in 96, the 13 of the auction price.
