I agree.

This from Railway Gazette:

New line projects

'The hiatus in railway development has left many of Turkey’s major cities not served by rail, or only accessible from the capital by circuitous routes. Much of the network is single track, and only 27% of route-km is electrified. The ministry has therefore drawn up plans for five double-track electrified lines suitable for 250 km/h, which will open up new routes and cut journey times dramatically. By 2013 it expects to have completed 1 938 km of new line.

As well as the Ankara – Eskisehir line, construction of the next section towards Izmit and Istanbul has commenced with the alignment being constructed from Eskisehir as far as Bozüyük although no track has yet been laid. Construction is also well advanced on a direct line from Ankara to Konya, on which the infrastructure works have largely been completed and tracklaying is getting underway. This diverges from the Eskisehir line at Polatli, west of the capital, and runs almost due south to meet the line from Afyon at Sarayönü, north of Konya. This route is expected to see trains running by the end of 2010.

Work has also started on the first section of a new line from Ankara to Sivas via Yozgat, which will shorten the distance between the two cities by 131 km, and reduce the journey time from 11 h to 5 h . And to the west of Istanbul, surveying has started for a 230 km high speed line between Halkali and the Bulgarian border.

Other new routes envisaged include a line running southwest from Ankara to Izmir, which would also diverge at Polatli. This will intersect at Afyon with a north-south line from Eskisehir to the Mediterranean coast at Antalya, which is currently not served by rail. A branch from the Eskisehir – Izmit line at Osmaneli will run to Bursa, and another new line will diverge from the Sivas route at Yerköy to head southeast to Kayseri. Routes to serve eastern cities such as Erzincan, Malatya and Gaziantep are also under consideration.'

KTX II which will be produced in Turkey and used by TCDD have a max. speed of 350 km/h. The spanish CAF's used right now have max. speed of 250 km/h.
This could be the explanation.

Istanbul's station will be underground (Yenikapi station) and at the same time it will be a hub where two metro lines, the marmaray line and hsr line meet and also Istanbul's biggest seabus terminal.




Ankara's hsr station will be great!

It would be cool if they could build a HSL from Turkey to Bulgaria on one side and from Turkey to Iran on the other side.

as you can see in Tanjus post there is a project to expand the Ankara-Istanbul line to the Bulgarian border. Iran will remain just a dream for a couple of decades I guess.

Turkey will have 2013 the longest High Speed Train lines of the world (3431 km).More than Spain (2230 km) and Japan (2090km) at this time.

I think the current plan is very optimistic.

You left out China. It already has 250 kph on a huge amount of regular railroads, not to mention their 350 kph network under construction.

Beijing-Hong Kong + Beijing-Shanghai will be longer than Turkey, not to mention the rest

but hey, this is great news for turkey

this new network should also be used by freight
