Excerpt: The Turkish State Railways started building high-speed rail lines in 2003. The first section of the line, between Ankara and Eskiehir, was inaugurated on March 13, 2009. It is a part of the 533 km Istanbul to Ankara high-speed rail line. The construction of three separate high-speed lines from Ankara to Istanbul, Konya and Sivas, as well as taking an IstanbulIzmir line to the launch stage, form part of the Turkish Ministry of Transport's strategic aims and targets.

Prior to the upgrading of this line in 2006, the railway's market share of Istanbul to Ankara passenger transit was 10%, with a travel time of 6.5 hours. In 1994, an initial plan to upgrade the existing line was launched, named the "AnkaraIstanbul Railway Line Rehabilitation Project."
