Kadir Topbas, Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, hosted the consul-general in Istanbul for breakfast at Emirgan Mansion. President Kadir Topbas who listened his thoughts about Istanbul, also answered questions about Istanbul.
Topbas reminded that the project of Haliç Metro Bridge was approved by UNESCO and the construction works continued, and gave the following information; Uz Unfortunately, there are some political stances on this issue and we are complaining to international platforms. The route of Levent-Taksim-Yenikapı Metro was determined in 1982 and the objections of our Prime Minister in 1994 were not taken into consideration as the excavations started. When I came to office, the tunnels in Süleymaniye and Şişhane were at the end point. Under the Golden Horn you must make a piled bridge because the 65 meter is mud. The subway derailments in a light play on the floating bridge. Here you have to build a rope and a little pile system. The world-famous bridge architect Kalatrava also made a sketch about it, but before us the Guardian Board refused to even ask him to meet. I invited him when I was on duty, but he didn't come because of the old thing. 1 million people will pass through the Golden Horn Metro Bridge and such a bridge design was a must. We will also take over the Unkapanı Bridge and remove the buses. People will look at the Golden Horn and the historical peninsula view from this pedestrian crossing. We need to look at the event. One should also look at the 360 rating of a bridge. One point is not enough to look at. It's very important where you look. We even do color work to make the bridge compatible with the environment.
