Alanya-Antalya High Speed Train Project should be implemented as soon as possible: ANTALYA Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Mustafa Akaydın, CHP Provincial President Devrim Kök, CHP District President Şevki Türktaş visited Alanya Journalists Association (AGC) President Mehmet Ali Dim yesterday. Akaydın, who came to visit with his team, received information about Alanya's problems from AGC President Dim. Mayor Dim said, “With the local elections to be held in March 2014, Alanya will be the lower tier municipality of Antalya. Antalya will serve Alanya as a lower level municipality. Antalya and Alanya are tourism cities in both cities. What Alanya needs is the functionality of Gazipaşa Airport. kazancost. We want the fast train between Alanya and Antalya. We know the work of Antalya Metropolitan Municipality on sea transportation, and we want it to contribute to Alanya in this direction. Antalya Metropolitan Municipality gave iftar dinner in Alanya. This is a first in history. In the next process, we want such meetings and visits, especially in organizations, in terms of researching and solving problems," he said.
“ALANYA-ANTALYA SHOULD BE A FAST TRAIN”
Today, I came to Alanya with my two general managers, two department heads and other unit chiefs. As our AGC President said, we wanted to get to know Alanya one more time. We wanted to examine the problems of Alanya and see it on the spot. With the Metropolitan Law, what kind of service will be provided to Alanya with the metropolitan law since 2014? kazanWe can do it, we're calculating it. We want to get over the harmonization problem quickly, so as not to have any harmonization problems with Alanya after 2014. The problems experienced in tourism are our common problems with Alanya. While there was no tourism in the center of Antalya, there was tourism in Alanya in the 1980s. We will do our best to solve Alanya's problems, both politically and as a metropolitan municipality. High-speed train in Antalya is a late project. When I bought the EXPO flag in Paris, I asked the Minister of Transport to take the high-speed train to Antalya with EXPO. He replied, 'The High-Speed Train Project is among the 2023 Targets'. There should be a high-speed train between Antalya and Alanya. The work on the project should be started as soon as possible. It is easy to reach Alanya-Antalya in 1 hour, let alone 1 hour and 15 minutes, by high-speed train. The high-speed train will also greatly affect domestic and foreign tourism. Antalya and Alanya should also attach great importance to cruise tourism. We tried sea transportation between Kemer and Antalya, but we could not be successful. Because Antalya is open sea, it is not possible to do this by ferry, but maybe with a cruise ship," he said.
