Test drives have started for the high-speed train (YHT) application, which will move on the 25-kilometer line, the construction of which was completed within the scope of the Gaziray Project in Gaziantep. The test process has started for the high-speed train that will run between Ankara and Gaziantep, and after the tests are completed, our city of Gaziantep will meet with YHT! Here is our news that will answer all your questions about Ankara Gaziantep YHT!
Within the scope of Gaziray Project, Ankara Gaziantep high-speed train tests started on 22.05.2022. Siemens high-speed train, which was brought from Ankara to Gaziantep, started pantograph dynamic measurement test analyzes on the Gaziray line, which will last for five days. The pantograph catenary dynamic interaction test started with the electrification of the train line today. Necessary measurements are made by taking safety precautions on the line where test drives are made at high speed. After the tests that will last for 5 days, the suitability decision will be made for the high-speed trains of the line.
