Kadir Topbaş Answered Questions About Transportation Projects in Istanbul
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Kadir Topbaş explained why he was a candidate again before the upcoming local elections and said, “I feel agreement on not continuing”. Topbaş shared his thoughts on the heavy guns of the Ak Party, whose names are mentioned with the Istanbul candidacy, and said, “I don't say anything about my fellow travelers, I don't hurt myself, I don't hurt myself”. Topbaş answered the questions of Fatma Aksu from Hürriyet newspaper. He also answered his questions about Haliç Metro Bridge, Metro Works in Istanbul, Marmaray and Metrobus.
MOST IMPORTANT PROJECTS
Kadir Topbaş is experiencing a different excitement these days. Because important projects that will provide integration in Istanbul transportation have reached the stage of completion. Kadıköy- After the Kartal Metro was put into service, there is Marmaray, Haliç Metro Bridge, Esenler-Bağcılar-Olympic Village metro.
7 BILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENT IN RAIL SYSTEM
Explaining the investments in the subway, Topbaş said: “Esenler-Olimpiyatköy Metro Thank God we have money. We made a 7 billion dollar investment in metro. We continue to do. Kabataş- We are at the tender stage of the first phase of the Mahmutbey metro. We are opening the Esenler Bağcılar-Başakşehir subway this summer. Studies are not seen because they are underground but there is 24 hours of continuous work.
MARMARAY NIGHT DAY WILL WORK
Marmaray is not only one of the worldwide transportation system as a dream project for the History of the Republic of Turkey. Kadıköy-Kartal Metro and subsequently Üsküdar-Sancaktepe metro will be integrated with Marmaray. Passengers coming to Yenikapı via Marmaray will reach Sarıyer, Beşiktaş, Mecidiyeköy, Bağcılar, Esenler and Başakşehir Olimpiyatköy without interruption. We will do this and Istanbul will catch this bar. All our efforts are for this. They couldn't imagine what I said. Marmaray means uninterrupted railway crossing from London to China on the East-West axis. People will move during the day and logistics service at night. If those who say “Marmaray will not be a remedy” cannot see this, what shall we say?
HALİÇ METRO BRIDGE
Haliç Metro Bridge is one of the backbones of the integrated transportation system I mentioned. It's a 19-year event. It is finally completed. Connecting Yenikapı to Taksim means 1 million passengers a day using the rail system.
METROBUS IS AN EXAMPLE OF PARIS
Making evaluations about the metrobus system, Topbaş said, “Those who criticize this project should go to Paris Municipality and get a briefing. Our Zoning Commission President and the delegation, including members of the opposition parties, went to Paris. There they said, "We are thinking of applying the metrobus system in Istanbul to Paris."
