Üç Eylül Neighborhood of Ödemiş Gets Railway Pedestrian Underpass
Within the framework of the renovation works of the State Railways between Ödemiş and Torbalı, Üç Eylül Quarter, which is divided in half from the middle due to the iron railings mounted in Ödemiş, is getting close to the railway pedestrian underpass.
As a result of the works initiated after the underpass request of Üç Eylül Neighborhood residents who had difficulty in passing to the Kantarcı location where institutions such as health centers, neighborhood houses and schools are located due to the handrails and had to walk to the old station area, a tender was held in Tcdd 3rd Regional Directorate.
For the underpass to be constructed near the Bridge Street, the objection process was expected after the tender and it was learned that the place delivery would be made in 5 in July. The pedestrian underpass, which will start with July, is expected to be completed by August.
Stating that they are a close follower of the issue and conveyed the public's request to the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım, AK Party İzmir Provincial Vice President Mahmut Badem said, “After the interest of our Minister, the necessary discoveries were made by the Tcdd 3rd Regional Directorate and the tender was held. Site delivery will be made on July 5, following the contractual process for the tender. The contractor firm will complete its work within a month. In order not to interrupt the train services, it is a matter of working at night. "We can say that the first digging for the pedestrian underpass, which our people want with interest, will be shot in July."
Noting that citizens sometimes jump over the iron railings in order to cross the street, Bekir Uşaklı, the head of Üç Eylül District, noted that it is very pleasing that the works started in the pedestrian underpass in a short time. Uşaklı said, “The barriers that cause our neighborhood to be divided into two are very important for railway and pedestrian safety. However, there are difficulties for our residents to go to institutions such as health centers and schools. The road is getting longer. Before that, we conveyed the demands of our people about this to the relevant people. After our justified request, the tender phase is over. We look forward to the moment when the first pickaxe will be hit in July. We would like to thank our Minister Binali Yıldırım, Tcdd officials, AK Party Provincial Deputy Chairman Mahmut Badem, and AK Party District Chairperson Ali Hadim, who were closely interested in this passage, which is of great importance for our neighborhood.
