Alsancak Railway Station opens to train services in May
With the commissioning of Hilal Transfer Station, the density in Halkapınar will decrease.
With the cooperation of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and TCDD, the arrangement works at the Hilal Transfer Station and Alsancak Station have come to an end.
The Hilal Transfer Station, which will provide a second transfer convenience after Halkapınar for İZBAN and the metro, and the new highway underpass works to Kahramanlar-Akıncılar have been completed to a great extent.
Thanks to the new suburban system to be integrated into Hilal Metro Station, there will be a significant reduction in passenger density due to the intersection of İZBAN and the metro at Halkapınar Transfer Station. With the start of Hilal Transfer Station, passengers will be able to go in any direction from here. Alsancak Station will be operational in May.
New tracks installed
TCDD officials stated that the work has been completed to a large extent, 85 percent of the rails have been renewed and that the Alsancak Station will open in May. Metropolitan Municipality officials, on the other hand, stated that 80 percent of the work to be done as a municipality has been completed and the work is ongoing. After the arrangement at Hilal Suburban Station, passengers coming by metro from Üçyol will not have to enter Alsancak to go to Menderes direction with İZBAN. Passengers coming from the direction of Menderes will also be able to transfer to the metro using the Hilal Transfer Station without entering Alsancak. Journey times will be shorter with Hilal Transfer Station.
