SHOULD BE OWNED IN Denizli and Izmir

I do not think there is anything about Aydın. The high-speed train project is an issue that concerns both Izmir and Denizli. After this stage, we want both Izmir and Denizli to support this project with both civil society organizations and their local administrative supervisors. We plan to have a wider and more comprehensive meeting with the participation of İzmir and Denizli in the second meeting we will hold in Aydın. ”


The high-speed train is seen as the most important means of transportation in the new era voicing provide energy savings of Turkey Ismail Hakki Nine, "We have made a small-scale survey in 2010, Eskişehir Ankara line have used a million people. The number of passengers using this line in 2011 exceeded 2 million. Since the number of people traveling between Eskişehir and Ankara will not increase this much in a year, it means that people have left their private vehicle and preferred the high-speed train. There are 20 flights daily between Eskişehir and Ankara. According to the information we received from the Aydın Station, we learned that the occupancy rates of the trains between Aydın and İzmir are 150 percent. This shows how high the potential in Aydın is. This potential will definitely increase several times when switching to high speed train. There is a university in Aydın whose student is based on 30 thousand. and there is an education battalion, which is vacant from 3 months to 3 months. In fact, Denizli has a university with more students than this number. Again, there are thousands of Aydınlı and Denizli students studying in İzmir. Aydın and Denizli have high commercial and economic connections. briefly, we would like the Izmir-Denizli high-speed train project to be implemented by reminding the reasons for the railway line that was established 150 years ago. ”


Listing the benefits of the high speed train project, İsmail Hakkı Dokuzlu said, “High speed train will contribute to our state in terms of saving our energy resources. It will also save time. If the high-speed train comes into play, the biggest service to İzmir, Aydın and Denizli cities will be realized recently. ”
