"WE WILL CARRY THE PASSENGERS COMING BY YHT TO THE CENTER WITH AFRAY"
Stating that the AFRAY project is planned to be included in the 2021 investment program, our President Zeybek said that the project will be completed as soon as possible and will be put into service of the citizens. Stating that the division of labor was made regarding the construction of AFRAY, Zeybek said, “The stations were to be realized by us as the municipality and the other parts by our state railways. The company, where the project tender was made and the project, made a presentation to us last month. After the presentation, we held a consultation meeting with relevant public institutions and organizations. The line constructed was considered parallel to the Afyon-Gazlıgöl and Eskişehir railway lines. Because the student will have a long walking distance to the university, a new route has been determined. We calculated that it would be much more efficient if a connection was made to the high-speed train line, provided that a line was built in front of the university from the dormitories area and two stops were made. The project related to the route was completed. 7. Our Regional Directorate submitted the project modification to the general directorate and the relevant project firm also realized it. Now, a route has been determined in the style we want and everyone accepts, ”he said.
"A VERY BEAUTIFUL PROJECT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CITY"
Pointing out that a route has been created for students studying at the university to be easily used, our President Zeybek continued his speech as follows; “We will connect our guests coming to the High Speed Train station with the center via the Suburban line. We aim to carry our guests and visitors who come to the station to the center with the Nostalgic tram. It is a very good project for the development of our city. Good luck to our Afyonkarahisar. "
