During the one-year project, Thales will install ETCS Level 1 in the station area and modify the existing interlocking and CTC systems.

Eskisehir is an important junction on the Turkish rail network and is currently located at the end of the high-speed line from Ankara, which is also equipped with ETCS Level 1. However, high-speed services are due to be extended to Istanbul when the new line opens later this year.
