To Build Happiness Is Our Happiness

Ankara-Konya High Speed Railway

Ankara – Konya High speed Railway which was started with the impetus gained from the sage Mevlana’s call “Come with love” by Yapı Merkezi in July 2009 and came into service in August 2011 which is considered as a world record time. In the scope of this project, it was planned to decrease the travel time between Ankara and Konya from 10,5 hours to 1 hour 15 minutes and also it was planned to solve the intercity transportation problems permanently and provide comfortable, contemporary, fast and economic transportation to passengers.

During the Project with solidarity of Yapı Merkezi employees, unprecedented pace of work was achieved not only in Turkey but also abroad. Everyday approximately 1 km of single trackway was installed and thousands of supplies processed. On occasion daily track installation speed increased up to 3 km. The project was completed so fast that it took the title of “World’s quickest constructed high-speed railway”. Also compared to the other high speed railway projects, Ankara-Konya High Speed Railway is world’s most economic project.
