Ayaş tunnel will be used in suburban transportation: Ayaş Mayor Bülent Taşan, regarding the Ayaş Tunnel and the old railway line, said, “Our negotiations are positive. "We will use the idle railroad for freight and suburban trains".
In his statement, Taşan reminded that the EIA report was prepared within the scope of the new high-speed train project, and said, "The old railway will not be used on this line to be built".
Emphasizing that most of the Ayaş Tunnel and old railway will not be used in the high-speed train project, Taşan said, “We are planning to use the old railway for freight and suburban flights. We want to utilize the half and idle railway that has been spent trillions of liras. We met separately with Melih Gökçek Bey and regional parliamentarians. Our talks are positive. "We will use the idle railroad for freight and suburban train services."
Stating that the railway infrastructure is ready in the section up to Sincan-Ayaş-Beypazarı-Nallıhan-Çayırhan, Taşan said, “With the commissioning of this railway, the region will gain a different vitality. The people of the region will reach the capital faster. In Çayırhan neighborhood, where industry is very active, the railway carries a different meaning. For this, as we care about this alternative train route, we will evaluate an investment waiting in an idle state ”.
