In fact, I was the first to propose this project in 2004 or 2005 at a meeting we held with the then Minister of Public Works Zeki Ergezen and the Minister of Transport Binali Yıldırım. Zeki Ergezen asked me 'What will be this Kordon road? I said, 'Everyone opposes, it will not be done. This time 'can we do a tunnel?' she asked. I also gave a positive answer. I said that they could enter in front of the Gas Factory and exit Karataş, but the problem between Passport and Pier should be resolved. Then, 'Why don't you combine Bostanlı and Üçkuyular? You will pay the cost of the world, at least get a tube pass' I said. About 45 days later, when Binali Bey came to Izmir, he told about this project in a speech he gave about transportation to young people. I stated at the beginning; we have no stand against! This project only has a few dilemmas. They are not at sea either; in land parts. When you go ashore, you encounter first degree natural site, green texture and Bird Paradise. It is recommended to pass these places with a tunnel at the bottom. You sit and talk. This is what the Metropolitan Municipality says. We do not stand against that project. Binali also knows that I proposed this project. "
