Adaray passes we look
I remember very well the booklet prepared by Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor İbrahim Karaosmanoğlu before the 2009 elections.
There were promises in a rather thick booklet printed on glossy paper. One of the biggest promises was the Light Rail Train project between İzmit and Gebze. I also remember the photo used for this project; An extremely modern railway vehicle was depicted at the Izmit train station.
Almost five years have passed since, none of those model photos have come true. However, what beautiful photographs were: a modern stadium in Yeniköy, a cable car in Kartepe, a 41-storey hotel in Perşembe Pazarı, and Metrobus… Not a single step was taken regarding these projects.
The Marmaray project was forgotten. Our 41-storey hotel would have been missing even if our stadium was missing. But public transportation projects concern citizens very closely. With the Light Rail System, both economical, comfortable and environmentally friendly transportation would be provided. People would go to their jobs and schools easily. This project is not on the agenda, and there are rumors that the train journey from Izmit will be difficult with the High Speed Train Project.
The budget of Sakarya Metropolitan Municipality is not even a quarter of our municipality. But they managed to implement the Light Rail Train project called ADARAY between Adapazarı and Arifiye. Adaray, who has been running trials for a while, has been officially put into service since the beginning of this week. People in neighboring cities have begun to enjoy the comfortable and economical journey between Adapazarı and Arifiye.
We don't have any ties here ler Adaray is passing, we are looking Bizim
