Süleyman Karaman, General Manager of State Railways (TCDD), who started to weave all over the country with High Speed Trains (YHT), told the government's crazy project about the train line to SABAH. The “Crazy Project” aims to reduce Ankara-Istanbul to 1.5 hours with YHT. Karaman said, “We are considering connecting Ankara-Istanbul directly over the 3rd Bridge. Travel then goes down to 1.5 hours. It costs about $ 10 billion. So high. For this reason, we chose to build the 4 billion dollar Eskişehir connection in the first place. We will connect Istanbul-Ankara between Eskişehir. However, we also want to realize the Ankara-Istanbul project. ” Explaining that the line that will connect Ankara-Istanbul with 300 kilometers per hour goes through Eskişehir, Karaman said that the project will end at the end of 2013 and the travel time between two will decrease to 2014 hours starting from 3.

Answering questions about why the high-speed train between Ankara and Istanbul was delayed, Karaman said in the tender they held in 2003 that the model that foreign investors applied with the opinion of the Central Bank for loan demand was approved by the Council of State after 4 years of trial. Karaman said, “But we waited for 4 years. He said, "Let's earn 1 percent income for the state, we made 10 percent loss."

Explaining that they will liberate the railways with the “airlines” model, Karaman said that they submitted the draft law they prepared to the Council of Ministers. With draft, private companies, including high-speed trains, said, “Get the trainer. You are a cargo or passenger. Karaman said, “If you want, you should build the line on your own”. We will bring a chance to choose one of dozens of companies. We have this project in our 4 plan. ”
