Making evaluations to the journalists on the wagon, Yıldırım drew attention to the importance of the Marmaray project in terms of international transportation integration. Minister Yıldırım said: “Silkroad train departing from China will cross two continents, namely Asia and Europe, under the Bosphorus and continue in Europe to London. Therefore, Marmaray is an indispensable project for an uninterrupted transportation line. That's why the whole world is watching this project carefully. This project is not just a project connecting the Far East, Asia, and Europe. It is also a vital project for Istanbul. It will carry 1,5 million Istanbul residents from one side to the other every day and thus traffic congestion on the bridges and roads of Istanbul will be significantly reduced ”.
Stating that the most critical place of the project is the Üsküdar-Sirkeci line, Yıldırım gave the following information: “The feature of this station is that it is a structure built in the sea. So it is a special structure against the risk of swimming. You are placing a box in the sea. In fact, it has to throw it up with the buoyancy of the water. There is a serious engineering solution here. A weight is created within the structure itself that will carry this and provide 'buoyancy' and thus you place this area at a certain depth. In other words, approximately 300 thousand cubic meters in volume. There is no precedent in the world. Sirkeci also has another unique feature. Building a station in that cramped area without damaging historical places, history and archaeological values is a very difficult task. "

On the 90th anniversary of the foundation of the Republic, we will take the Istanbulites from Europe to Asia, from Asia to Europe with Marmaray. Of course, these types of structures are difficult. You work under the ground, you work under traffic. There may be some unexpected unpleasant developments. Apart from these, if there is no unexpected and out of our will, our current goal is to open it on October 29, 2013. "There is no change in history," he said.
Binali Yıldırım, who also made jokes from time to time during the investigations, reminded the song "He took a rain on his way to Üsküdar" and said, "From now on, people who will go to Üsküdar will not get rain, nobody will get wet."
