In the construction of high-speed railways, Istanbul-Ankara-Sivas, Ankara-Afyonkarahisar-İzmir and Ankara-Konya corridors are determined as the core network. planned interconnection 15 big cities of our high-speed train primarily Ankara-Eskişehir, Ankara-Konya Konya-Istanbul and Ankara-Istanbul on line has started to YHT management and Turkey became the eighth sixth country in Europe in the world in high-speed train operation. In line with the targets, the construction of the 1.213 km High Speed Railway Line has been completed. Ankara Sivas, Ankara-İzmir High Speed Railway is under construction. Kayseri-Yerköy High Speed Railway tender works are continuing.
Thanks to the ongoing and planned projects, our country is built with high speed and fast rail networks from east to west and from north to south. In this way, GSTs will redesign the concept of accessibility by connecting the metropolitan cities and create a new regional development corridor by connecting our cities with all their dynamics, not a railway line.
