The total length of line is800 km (double track in 400 km long route), thus over half of the rails will be completed. Laying of rails continue in Yerkoy-Sivas section. Further steps are laying of rails in Ankara-Kirikkale-Yerkoy section, signalization and electrification.

Another target in this period is the tender for Halkali-Cerkezkoy high speed line. The tender for the first part, Cerkezkoy-Kapikule, was done in recent months.
