Turkey to Link Ankara-Istanbul High-speed Train to Bridge, Marmaray

Turkey's transportation minister says the high-speed train between the capital and the commercial hub would be connected to a bridge on Istanbul Strait and Marmaray rail system.


The High Speed Train Project comprises the construction of a new 533-km double, totally electrified and signalled high speed line, independent of the existing line between Ankara and Istanbul. Ankara-Eskisehir line of the project has been completed and started operation.
