CHP Balıkesir Deputy Nedret Akova asked when the high-speed train project on the Bursa - Balıkesir - İzmir line will be included in the investment program. Akova, who gave a parliamentary question to the Minister of Transport, Binali Yıldırım, to answer verbally, said, "Any investment to be made in land, air and seaway will accelerate the development of Balıkesir".
MP Akova expressed his views on the issue as follows:
BALIKESIR'S TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE
One of the important factors supporting the socio-economic development of our country is the development of our transportation infrastructure. Tourism, agriculture and industry sectors will be able to grow and develop, and cheap, fast and accessible transportation options will make a positive contribution. Therefore, one of the obstacles to the development of Balıkesir's potential in tourism, agriculture and industry is the inadequacy of our transportation infrastructure. Any investment in land, air and railway networks will accelerate the development of Balıkesir. We continue our efforts to increase the transportation infrastructure of Balıkesir to the desired level.
BURSA - BALIKESİR - İZMİR LINE IS NOT IN THE PROGRAM YET
While living in the age of technology, the inadequacies in transportation infrastructure are one of the important obstacles to the development of our country. All of our people expect high speed trains to become widespread in terms of transportation comfort, speed, safety and cheapness. The high-speed train only operates on the Ankara-Eskişehir, Ankara-Konya line today. Although Bursa-Balıkesir-İzmir high speed train application projects have been completed, it has not yet been included in the investment program.
WHICH LINES ARE GIVEN PRIORITY?
CHP Balikesir Deputy Nedret Akova, Binali Yıldırım asked the following questions:
“When will Bursa-Balıkesir-İzmir high speed train project be included in the investment program? When the Bursa-Balıkesir-İzmir high speed train project is included in the investment program, how long will it take for the tender preparations and implementation?
Are you working for high-speed transportation? Which lines are given priority?
Do you plan to give priority to Bursa-Balıkesir-İzmir line, which is one of the important connection lines of our country? "
