Description

Ankara (Polatli) - Konya High Speed Railway connects Polatli in Ankara Province to Konya, the 7th most populous city in Turkey. Polatli is on the Ankara-Istanbul high speed rail line, and this new construction will create a new Ankara-Konya rail line, which greatly decreases the travel time from 10.5 to 1.5 hours between the two cities.
