Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yildirim reminded them that they would receive an offer for the 3 bridge to Istanbul in April. We'il do this bridge anyway. Total cost 5 billion dollars. 5.2 billion dollars of this will be met with build-operate system, Bun he said.
Plan C ready
5 Offers will be received in April. We will make 340 kilometers connection roads with national budget. The bridge will be the 60-kilometer main axis and the 34-kilometer connection road with build-operate model. Total cost 5.2 billion dollars. 2.5 billion dollars of this build-operate system and the rest will be covered by the national budget. We did not see the possibility that there will be no demand for this project. We made an account-book, 'aspired out' we thought, but did not. The 94 kilometer section to be built with build-operate will be either tunnel or viaduct. The bridge crossing will be 3 dollars. Treasury guaranteed.
Daily 135 thousand vehicles will be guaranteed. If 5 doesn't lead in April, of course we have a C plan.
Haydarpaşa Culture Center
I don't agree with the Haydarpaşa debate. The Marmaray project starts from Gebze, and extends from Söğütlüçeşme, Üsküdar to Sirkeci from the bottom of the Bosphorus. Therefore, when Marmaray goes from there, there will be no need for a railroad between Haydarpaşa and Söğütlüçeşme. In this case, the area of 1 million square meters will be re-evaluated in Haydarpaşa and its vicinity. The station building, trains collection areas, port area, silos, History Board prepared the project. This project will be implemented this year.
Nostalgic train expedition
Haydarpaşa will remain as it is. Functions inside will change. There's a signaling mechanism. It is also very dangerous for this historic building. This system will be removed from there. It will be used as a cultural center. The historical committees conducted an analysis of these places. Nostalgic train services to Haydarpaşa. There are already rails. The high-speed train line is available via the existing line. Because for the new line there is also no land to be expropriated. Therefore, all flights from Haydarpaşa will no longer be made.
