The studies carried out in Ankara for a while to find solutions to the problems of Sakarya are continuing. After the meetings with Deputy Prime Minister Beşir Atalay, Minister of Health Recep Akdağ, Minister of Forestry and Water Affairs Veysel Eroğlu and TOKİ President Ahmet Haluk Karabel, the Sakarya delegation met with Minister of Transport Binali Yıldırım this time. Minister of Transport, Binali Yıldırım, Governor of Sakarya Mustafa Büyük, AK Party Deputies Hasan Ali Çelik, Ayhan Sefer Üstün, Şaban Ağır, Ayşenur İslam, Ali İhsan Yavuz, Metropolitan Mayor Zeki Toçoğlu and TCDD General Manager Süleyman Karaman attended the meeting held at the Ministry of Transport. The subject of the transfer of the train station to the new Intercity terminal built by the Metropolitan Municipality has left its mark on the meeting, where the evaluations and some new projects regarding the works carried out by the Ministry of Transport in Sakarya are discussed.
Commenting on the interviews, President Toçoğlu said, “As it is known, we have been working for a long time on moving the train station to the new terminal. The fact that the trains run 24 times a day in the direction of departure and arrival and the train station in the center affected the city traffic in particular. For this reason, as Sakarya Metropolitan Municipality, we started such a study to remove the train station from the city center and put an end to this congestion. We made a presentation to our Minister about our project. They stated that this project was prepared in a reasonable and logical manner and they would give full support to this project as the Ministry of Transport. May this project be beneficial for our city. 2012 will be the year of Sakarya. ” THE TOURISTIC RAIL SYSTEM IS COMING TO LIFE After moving the train station to the new terminal, Mayor Toçoğlu said that they will start working for the realization of this project as soon as the Metropolitan Municipality. Toçoğlu said that after moving the train station to the new terminal, they will realize the first phase of our city rail system project to enable citizens to reach the new terminal from the city center. Governor Mustafa Büyük, on the other hand, stated that the studies carried out in Ankara on investments were very positive. Parliamentary Human Rights Commission President and AK Party Sakarya Deputy Ayhan Sefer Üstün, who also made an assessment on behalf of the deputies, stated that the AK Party government supported Sakarya in all matters. "We are always with Sakarya and Sakaryalı," said Minister of Transport, Binali Yıldırım, who stated that Sakarya is a growing and developing city every day. Stating that the train station will provide full support to Sakarya as the Ministry of Transport for moving to the new terminal, Yıldırım said, “It has been a reasonable and reasonable project as far as we have examined. We are ready to do our part. We are ready to give you all kinds of support in this regard. We are well aware that Sakarya has a special place in the heart of our Prime Minister. Sakarya for us, an important city in Turkey. It is growing and developing rapidly every day. Of course, in parallel with this development, it is necessary to prepare such important projects. ”
