The high-speed train line that will connect Ankara and Izmir and reduce the 14-hour distance by train to 3,5 hours is anticipated. Citizens are wondering when the Izmir-Ankara high speed line will be opened. So, when will the high-speed train line between Izmir and Ankara open?
The works of the high-speed train line that will connect Izmir and Ankara continue rapidly. The Izmir-Ankara YHT line, the foundations of which were laid in 2012, will reduce the distance between the two cities from 14 hours to 3 and a half hours. It is thought that it will contribute to the development and economy of İzmir while increasing comfort and safety in high-speed train transportation.
With the project connecting Izmir and Manisa, Uşak and Afyonkarahisar on its route to Ankara, an important railway corridor is created on the west-east axis, while its cost is expected to reach 4.9 billion liras. The high-speed train line between Izmir and Ankara is planned to start in 2019.
