We regain our train: Train is very important for our city. We have been deprived of trains for about two years. We don't have a plane anyway. Izmit longs for the train for intercity travel, especially to comfortably go to Istanbul.
The AKP government made a great effort to run the high-speed train between Istanbul and Ankara. Prime Minister Erdogan said, “This job will be finished on time. On October 29, 2013, high-speed trains will run between Istanbul and Ankara ”. The Prime Minister's order kept things moving quickly.
Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Binali Yıldırım came to Yarımca on Sunday to get a YHT briefing.
The statement made at the end of this briefing sprinkled water on the hearts. According to the statement made by the Minister, the construction of the new railway for YHT on the 56-kilometer route between Gebze and Köseköy will be completely finished on September 30. There will be trial flights for a month and the high-speed train will start the service between Istanbul and Ankara on 29 October, that is, on the date requested by the Prime Minister.
This news is very important. But more importantly, Minister Yıldırım has officially announced that commuter trains on the Istanbul-Adapazarı line will also operate on the same route on the same date. Moreover, suburban trains will be much more luxurious, comfortable and faster than before.
I do not guess that there will be deviations in the dates announced at this far end. A very important alternative will soon be created for those who want to travel intercity from Izmit.
