Of course, we are trying to put the Eskişehir-Istanbul high speed train to the service of our people as soon as possible. We are here for this purpose. We are trying to speed up the process. In this framework, both our ministry, railways and contractor companies work day and night. It is not possible for us to give an exact date regarding the completion of the study. Test drives continue in many sections. Apart from that, electrification and signalization studies continue. There are places that are troubled due to landslide. Problems in that direction need to be resolved. We have no troubles. But our friends are working fast. ”

Our state railways deliver our high-speed train, which is a dream for all of us, to our citizens and our country. kazanhas risen.
