Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan stated that 70 percent progress has been made in infrastructure works in Ankara-Sivas High Speed Train (YHT) project so far, and that the project will be held on October 6, under the tender of electromechanical systems and superstructure between Yerköy and Sivas.
Arslan made inspections at the Ankara-Sivas YHT Line Elmadağ Construction Site.
Arslan, who emphasized that the spirit of the nation was proved to the whole world by spraying the coup attempt thanks to 79 million, said, “Our job is to be on the construction sites.
