AK Party Deputy Elvan Karaman spoke about the investments in the railway: AK Party deputies from Karaman Lütfi Elvan and Mevlüt Akgün and Mayor Kamil Uğurlu evaluated the investments made in Karaman.
Latiffi Elvan, deputy of the AK Party, Karaman, said: i Karaman has become a construction site. The investments made by our municipality, including the public investments of our ministries, are like a construction site throughout Karaman throughout the last 1 year. Karaman in the next 1-2 years, I believe in the future in a position to be an example for all of Turkey. Currently, investments are continuing quickly. As Karaman, we have no serious financial problems. Karaman is one of the cities that are prominent in major investment projects. Our ministries are fulfilling what we have requested so far. In this respect, we don't have a serious problem. However, there are some delays in our tenders. This is due to the difficulties experienced in the bureaucracy. We are following these investments as two deputies. The most important sector that can open the way for Karaman is the transportation sector. The more we strengthen the connection between Karaman and other provinces, the faster Karaman development will be. Transportation is the top priority for our sectors. Today, when we look at the investments, the biggest cake is getting transportation investments. When we look at the present, we have an investment in 1.5 quadrillion near our Karaman. High-speed train was also the tender. In the 2023 year program, Konya, Karaman and İçel high speed train line project was not included. But we have made the tender by pulling it forward with our initiatives. In 2014, we are aiming for the tender of the high-speed railway from Karaman to Ulukışla. We will have performed before 2020 while the fast train project will not have a mishap. This will enable the opening of Karaman to the Mediterranean as well as opening it to other provinces, mainly Ankara, in Central Anatolia. One of the most important pillars of this high-speed train project is not only passengers, but also cargo transportation. The important issue for us in the fast train will be to reduce the cost of the cargo that will be transferred from the Organized Industrial Zone to the Icel Port eden.
