Turkey wanted to build a 200 km/h track between Ankara and Istanbul first but then the government decided to build a 250 km/h track. The costs doubled and the construction takes 2 more years than the first 200 km/h project. :runaway:DonQui said::yes:
Plus I don't understand. If you are going to go throught the trouble of building new tracks and such fo 160km/h, why not go up to 250 km/h?
Do the construction costs rise that high?
