How long and how tall is this viaduct? Is this the tallest and longest viaduct on the line?

It's always seemed strange to me that there's no really direct line which allows higher speed between Istanbul and Ankara. Is there some reason for that?

So there will be two lines east from Istanbul: one veering down to Eskisehir and one going straight to Ankara?

I think he was talking about a straight, more direct line from Istanbul to Ankara, not one that takes a detour down to Eskisehir and then back up again to Ankara.

I wondered that too for some time. And then I checked Google Maps terrain and saw mountains...

Sort of in the same vein, are the high speed lines engineered/future-proofed for >300km/h retrofit down the line?

@www.sercan.de

I saw that map before, but I just wondered, considering how much the line between Istanbul and Ankara veers down to the south, to pass through Eskisehir, how high a train's average speed could be between the two bigger cities.

Most high speed lines which pass through multiple nationally-important cities go ~300kmh on very straight lines, and it seems strange to me to invest in a new high speed rail line not built to that sort of specification.

Was there a decision against this, during planning, for cost reasons, or is the volume of travel not expected to be great enough to necessitate that sort of layout?

Ankara-Eskisehir is rather a flat highland (so it is Ankara-Konya, too), so connecting Istanbul to Eskisehir was seen as an affordable compromise to link Istanbul with Ankara.

However, I'd like to see a separate only Istanbul-Ankara line, because there is huge demand. Sometimes the 3-lane highway is crowded, and there are dozens of flights each day between these cities.

Turkey orders Siemens Velaro high speed trainsets
08 Jul 2013

TURKEY: National railway TCDD has placed an order for seven Velaro high speed trainsets, Siemens has confirmed. The contract is worth €285m, including seven years of maintenance by the manufacturer.

Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens' Rail Systems Division, said the Turkish contract marked its entry into a promising growth market.

The Velaro trainsets are to be deployed on the Ankara - Konya high speed line as well as the Ankara - Istanbul route which is being upgraded with the construction of new alignments and rebuilding of existing routes for higher speeds.

Current services are operated using a fleet of 12 six-car trains supplied by CAF in 2009 and now maintained by Alstom.
