High speed lines of Turkey – The complete guide

As the social and economical impacts realized, both the demand of people and the promises of politicians for high speed trains become one of the most important discussions of the elections.

On the other hand, high speed trains are long-term and expensive investments. Far more funding than today’s investment budget is needed to complete even the planned ones.

Rail Turkey will keep its eyes on the whole high speed network (completed, under construction, planned or just announced) and will regularly publish developments.

Here is the complete list of all high speed lines of Turkey including just announced ones:

    (posted comment again as had not checked “notify via email” box – I think that should be checked by default – also site is a little slow)
