Öğüt, 20 thousand citizens benefit from the day between the maintenance and high-speed train station between the Köseköy-Haydarpasa station was closed, reminding the students, workers, civil servants and poor citizens, the most economical and safe way instead of the highway, said the alternative.
Pointing out that railway transportation is the most reliable transportation in the event of an earthquake, Öğüt said that this artery of Istanbul, which has an earthquake risk, was cut, and that both passenger and logistics transportation were left only to the highway.
Öğüt said, "We are not against this improvement and the high-speed train."
“With the excuse of changing the rail and making high-speed trains, the distance between Köseköy and Haydarpaşa will be temporarily closed for 3 years, and then Marmaray will be put into the system and closed completely because it is not needed. Thus, a history will be sacrificed to rent. However, our recommendation; One of the lines is to remain open and renewal is to be done sequentially. The government, which objects to this, leaves a single line open for industrial transportation between Köseköy and Derince. In other words, it applies our proposal only for the industry. "
