The cable car systems are perfect for the slums in Latin America. But I cannot imagine how they will work in Ankara. Indeed they could be very ugly especially in GuvenPark

I guess you don't know Turkey enough.
And in Ankara there is a few slums, not much. And the government and metropolitan municipality replacing them with modern apartments.
It's getting off topic!


Fatih Station

I(L)WTC, I didn’t want to say any offence about Latin America, on the contrary, i love that part of the world. I think that providing the slums with cable car system is very imaginative and very useful for poor people there. But the structure of Turkish cities is not like those in Latin America. The economy is different, the architecture outlook of the cities is different, history is different, people are different. Especially Ankara....

Kind regards
CSR Zhuzhou supplying the trains, as the lowest bidder and beated CAF and Rotem.
They are building a plant in Ankara, because they must use %30 local content initial 75 trains sets increasing %51 in later trainsets.
Any other question?

The system appears to be a very no nonsense design. The system appears to have put the money into functionality.

I think the absence of monumental architecture in subways is wise unless money is no object.

I suspect that very fancy station design, while very pleasing to the eye, often reflects unnecessary expense when building public transportation systems.

Put the money into the track route, switching, platform depth and length, and, station access.

This appears to be a system that will move people well.

I do recommend that Ankara work very hard to add more of the high tech parts with Turkish content.

Yes. If we compare our stations with İzmir and İstanbul's stations, our stations are the worst.
But new lines are lucky that they have better stations.
For example, in M3 line, Mesa Station;



And in M2 line, opening tomorrow; (photos are old)
ODTÜ Station


Bilkent Station;




___________________________________________________________



And M2 line (it's actually an extension but I call it "line" until end of this year becuse of the same reasons with M3 line)
This line opening tomorrow. It's a 16,5 km long line and has 12 stations.
And this line has two transfer station. One with M1 line, in Kızılay; and the another one in Söğütözü with Ankaray (A1).

Ankara opens metro line M2
13 Mar 2014



TURKEY: Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan officially opened Ankara metro Line M2 on March 13, one month after Line M3 opened and nearly one year ahead of the original schedule.

The 16·6 km line runs west from Kızılay to Çayyolu, serving 12 stations. It is operated by the state-owned Altyapi Yatirimlari Genel Mudurlugu.

A consortium of Ansaldo STS and Alsim Tesisleri Alarko Sanayi Ve Ticaret has supplied signalling and communications-based train control. Commercial speed is 80 km/h.

Finally it's opened last week!
I can say that this line has the best stations in Ankara. Especially I liked Milli Kütüphane, ODTÜ, Necatibey stations more.

And here is the photos;

Great to see all the development in the city transportation! For a metro region of its size, this must be a relief for its citizens.

Tureky is undoubtedly becoming a much better country for its population. Some friends visited it and they all said great things about it.

Thanks Gutovsky.

I'm updating the list that I wrote on previous page;

We have subway lines in service;
1) Dikimevi-Aşti (1996) 8,5km
2) Kızılay-Batıkent (1997) 14,6 km
3) Batıkent-OSB/Törekent (2014) 15,3 km
4) Çayyolu-Kızılay (2014) 16,5 km
Total: 54,9 km
If we add commuter rail system to this list, we have 91,9 km rail line in service.

And we have 1 subway lines under construction;

1) Tandoğan-Keçiören (will be open in 2015) 10,5 km
Total: 10,5 km

And we have 2 other subway lines in planning;
1) Gar-Esenboğa Uluslararası Havalimanı (Central Station- Esenboğa International Airport)
2) Gar-Kızılay (could be extension of M4)

And we have 1 commuter line;
1) Sincan-Kayaş 37 km
