Governor Özdemir stated that the journeys between Edirne and Istanbul will be reduced to less than 3 hour after the high-speed train starts 1 years later, and that Edirne is a historical center where civilizations spread to the world, stated that it was a city he created.
Governor Özdemir, the high-speed train will be tendered this year. When it is put into service in 2020, transportation to Istanbul will be reduced to 45 minutes or 1 hour. When the Çanakkale Bridge is built, the transportation from Çanakkale to Istanbul will pass through the Keşan-Tekirdağ region and we will have such a connection with Istanbul and Izmir. Looking at the Silk Road routes and economic routes in history, Edirne will be a much more integrated city with the world after the construction of the third bridge, both by high-speed train and other means of transportation.
