The tender which will provide the exit of Balçova Hill, which has the most beautiful view of Izmir and which has closed the 5 years, will not be finalized again. In the report prepared by the Metropolitan Municipality Chamber of Mechanical Engineers Izmir Branch, the facility was closed in November 2007 upon the emergence of the facility, and the facility was renewed in accordance with EU standards.
The tender process of Balçova cable car facilities turned into a complete chaos. It has been postponed twice so far. Once the result of the corrective action by the JCC changed the result. The tender was canceled by the Metropolitan Municipality because the winning firm could not bring sufficient documents. The tender for the renewal of the last ropeway facilities in February resulted in the award of the lowest bid of 10 million 225 thousand TL STM System Ropeway Assembly and Tourism AS. The tender with the highest bid 14 million 400 thousand TL Doppelmayr Seilbahnen Gmbh company appealed to the application by the Metropolitan Municipality. Metropolitan Municipality did not justify the objection of the company. He refused the application. Doppelmayr then filed an appeal against the JCC. The JCC decided on the cancellation of the tender at a meeting held on April in 9. The decision made by the JCC, which is the forerunner of the decision, has not announced the reasoned decision yet. When the Metropolitan Municipality decision is announced, it will either open a case for the cancellation of the decision or initiate a new tender process.
If the tender is not canceled, then the system to be installed will be increased to 400 thousand 2 people per hour with 400 per hour, and 300-500 will increase to 600-12. Instead of the old four-seater passenger cabins, the XNUMX cabins would be used in the ropeway system. In the new ropeway line, the cab would automatically stop when the rope came up with the automation system and there would be immediate intervention. The ticket halls at the entrance of the facility under the scope of the tender will be renewed.
