Expressing that the project is largely ready, Yıldırım said, “Both project studies and studies have been completed. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process continues.

A large part of the city believes that the project will be very useful for İzmir. There are explanations that İzmir will ease the north-south traffic and shorten the time. This is encouraging. We do not do anything in Izmir, despite the people of Izmir. Whenever this business says okay, we will do what it takes right away. ”
Stating that Izmir Metropolitan Municipality did not have a statement that it directly opposed the project, Yıldırım said that the municipality supports the project, but some non-governmental organizations think negatively about the project, but a large part of Izmir especially supports this project.
Yıldırım explained to the people of Izmir before the November 1 elections that they promised to take all kinds of measures to prevent the delay of the projects and said, “We will not let Izmir lose time regarding the projects related to the municipality or our government. Therefore, we are trying to follow up on behalf of the municipality in Ankara on the projects of the municipality. We have always used initiative for solutions in big projects that will prepare Izmir's future for the solution of Izmir's problems, and in the same way, in cooperation with the municipality, we will work together on the common denominator of Izmir's future. ”
