President Erdoğan attends inauguration ceremony of High Speed Train station in Ankara
The Turkish president and prime minister attended the inauguration ceremony of the High Speed Train (HST) Station in Ankara on Saturday. The station, which will provide service to 50,000 people per day, stands out among other stops of the train network for its multi-functional architecture. Rather than a place simply for passengers to wait for the next train, the station includes large commercial spaces for shops, department stores, an array of restaurants, cafes, cinema and a five-star hotel with 134 rooms. Twelve office spaces and a parking lot for 1,910 vehicles are also among the other facilities of the station, distinguished for its modern architectural style. The station will be directly linked to means of mass transit, such as a suburban rail system and the subway.
The station has a closed area of 194,460 square meters and consists of eight floors, including the basements, three platforms and six high-speed lines.
