Binali Yıldırım Marmaray changed the history of Istanbul: This week's guest of the "What's Happening" program, prepared and presented by TRT News Channel Coordinator Ahmet Böken, was Minister Binali Yıldırım.
Minister Yıldırım answered his questions on the agenda. Starting his speech by explaining the history of the Marmaray project, Minister Binali Yıldırım said, “Marmaray is actually the project of Sultan Abdülhamid Han II. In 2, the French draw it. Today's Marmaray project is different from that of Marmaraya. But it is important as a thought. After this date, in 1891, there is an idea whether a tube passage can be made to the Bosphorus, but the project is not done. In 1979, the first concrete step was taken during the Turgut Özal period. Still, progress cannot be made. It comes to the agenda again during the coalition government after 1987 and the search for loans is started. The Japanese state that they can provide loans under certain conditions due to environmental sensitivity. In 1997, a consultancy tender was held for the project. AK Party took office during the tender of the project. We did not finish the project. After the tender, the project started in 2000 ”. Asked whether it is possible for Marmaray to relieve Istanbul traffic alone, Binali Yıldırım said, “Marmaray will be an important part of transportation in Istanbul. One person will be able to go from Ayrılıkçeşme to Kazlıçeşme in 2004 minutes. He will be able to go from Kartal to Zeytinburnu in about 16 minutes ”. Stating that Marmaray's Sirkeci entrance was closed due to the intensity, Minister Yıldırım said that every time Marmaray was broken, there should be no fuss. Yıldırım said Marmaray will be free until November 40. Binali Yıldırım stated that the emergency aid arm of the train has been pulled in Marmaray 12 times so far.
THE HISTORY OF ISTANBUL HAS CHANGED
Stating that he was worried that it would not be reached on time, Minister Binali Yıldırım said, “The foundations of the project were laid in 2004. We expected it to open in 2009. Each station is a treasure trove of history. This project changed the history of Istanbul. The history of Istanbul goes back 8 thousand years. "35 thousand archaeological objects were found in the Marmaray works."
