The distance between Konya and Antalya will decrease to 2 hours and 15 minutes.

With the opening of the Eğiste Viaduct, which crosses the Taurus Mountains, the journey between Konya and Antalya will decrease to 2 hours and 15 minutes. The crossing of Eğiste Stream, where traffic is disrupted due to curves and steep slopes, will be easier. Being built between Konya-Hadim-Taşkent and Karaman's Sarıveliler-Başyayla-Ermenek districts, it will uninterruptedly connect the Mediterranean and Central Anatolia regions with the feature of being "Turkey's highest pedestal viaduct". The viaduct, which will reduce the longitudinal slope of the road from 8 percent to 2.30 percent, will significantly relieve transportation on the Eğiste Stream, which is crossed by steep slopes and sharp bends.
