File:Turkey High Speed Rail.png[edit]

Hi NeoRetro,

may you please update your map, since the Ankara-Istanbul high speed line is operational now?--Kopiersperre (talk) 12:19, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I used to update that map back when there were serious plans about high speed rail lines in Turkey. Because of corruption issues and financial troubles, construction on most lines has been halted. Only part of the Istanbul-Ankara line is operational, with most of it not being high speed at all. The line towards Izmir has been under construction for years, yet only 2% is finished. The other lines toward the south and east have all been cancelled. I think this map can go in the trash. When I have time I will try to update it, but you can also do it yourself if you want to :) NeoRetro (talk) 17:49, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
This seems bad for me. I'm from Germany – We don't have much corruption, but even here they have been constructing the HSR Erfurt–Leipzig/Halle since 1996, and it's still not opened. Only the Chinese know, how to construct in sufficient time.--Kopiersperre (talk) 21:55, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
