First of all my congratulations to TCDD and all other, who worked for the development of highspeed rail in Turkey!!


Anyone knowing, whether also conventional trains will be able to use the highspeed lines? This could be used for example to speed up trains like Haydarpasa - Kars oder Haydarpasa - Tatvan...

And when the highspeed network is complete, also Istanbul - Adana might be possible in just one night..

No, highspeed lines are only for highspeed trains in Turkey and that's be best feature of that system. In some european networks highspeed train have to share the tracks with conventional trains but not in Turkey.

Ankara-Eskisehir finished
Eskisehir - Ankara u/c
Ankara - Konya u/c
Ankara - Sivas u/c

Ankara - Izmir approved
Osmaneli - Bursa approved


Here you see the Ankara-Istanbul highspeed line on the left and Ankara-Istanbul conventional train on the right. The are parallel to each other although the highspeed line is a bit shorter tan the conventional one.

Railway Gazette says the 250 km/h (155mph) line speed was chosen as a compromise between energy consumption and journey times.

Are all future Turkish high speed lines going to be operated at 250 km/h?

no, we have 350 km/h project and this line is also built as suitable for 350km/h. Hundai Rotem of Korea and Turkish T▄LOMAŞ companies built a train factory in Turkey and they started to manifcture some trains, but they wait for Istanbul-Ankara line to manifacture 350km/h trains.

There was an interesting article on Turkish High Speed Rail in January's International Railway Journal which talks about 8 new 250km/h railways:

So will all planned high speed lines be 350km/h later or will some of them still be 250km/h. (In that case which ones will be 350km/h and when?) I think 250km/h is a little slow when building new railways in the 2000s, but its still great that Turkey will get high speed trains.

Will Turkish cities also build more underground metro lines? As far as I know public transportation by rail in Turkish cities is pretty low. New metro-lines in the three biggest cities is very important imho. I know they build new big roads but they cant plan the cities for cars any longer.

The lines are designed for 350 km/h, it's the spanish CAFs that reach just 250 km/h but Turkey is buildings with the help of Korean Rotem its own highspeed trains with a max. speed of 350 km/h.
http://www.hyundai-eurotem.com

Regardinng urban rail transport, Turkish cities have built quite lot in the last decade. Istanbul is also the city with the longest metro construction right now, including marmaray it's about 120 km and the construction of 2 more lines will begin very soon.

Here more about Turkish urban transportation:

Will 250km/h and 350km/h both traffic the lines when they are finished or are the 250km/h trains just temporary?

Thanks for the link, is there any map that shows the planned and existing underground metro lines in turkish cities?

I agree with serdar. There are few reasons why is good to save Haydarpasa and Sirkesi:
- For the most of long distance passengers Istanbul is start or end destination. The end stations are more comfortable for ending trip because they are in one level. There are lot of stations in Europe and Russia which have end tracks in railway stations, to make naturaly going in and out in near groun level as much as posible. The new undergound Sirkesi station, for example, will be deep 56m, and it will need 3-4 minutes to go dawn or up.
- Istanbul have about 1.000.000 daily migrants. Those people are turist, person which are in Istanbul for trade and business etc. Those actvities are concetrated in central area, and they are not hurry. All for them interesting activities are aboveground, and it is better to do not pass Istanbul by two or three undergroun stations. The aboveground daily migrant is better for economy then underground.
- There is queation of capacity. By inhabitation of pasengers with existing traffic system, European Bosphorus side is the most important destination for european side urban passengers, and Asian Bosphorus side for European side Bosphorus passengers. If all of them going out on Bosphorus side underground station, that make trains stay longer in stations and make neck bottles effect. More undergound unnecesarry passenger need bigger capacity of expensiv underground objects, against the existing railway stations.
- There is question about capacity. For traffic task of high speed rails in country with 75.000.000 people, urban traffic in city of 14.000.000 people, transcontinental freight traffic, the three tracks are not enough. Just part of the traffic can take old stations, and aboveground stations need 4-5 track for points conecting old railways with new underground to the end of suburbs. One of solution is building new bridge at north for freight transit.
- The Kumkapi, Cankurtaran and Haydarpasa are out of coridor of future line. Its better to have more station in city center to replace the car jurneys. If some city have it overground, this city is rich.
- The existing stations are cultural and historic monuments. With saving them in function, Turks explain that they care about their history, cultur and heritage. To come in an old saved station is estetic feeling.

I have never been in Istanbul, and all my sugestions are by my traffic knowledge and analyzing the rail networks from cities in Europe and Russia.
