Railway Work in Tarsus: Tarsus Mayor Şevket Can said that the project prepared for the Adana-Tarsus-Mersin double track railway to be removed on 4 lines should be well studied in the name of Tarsus.
Can, a press conference in a restaurant, gave information about their recent work.
Can started work to illuminate the districts of the district that transmits Can, Ramadan, with the contribution of businessmen in the month of sahur and iftar dinner reported.
Also mentioned the work of increasing the Adana-Tarsus-Mersin railway line, said:
“We are not against this project. But we want to draw attention to the problems that will arise when this project is carried out. Gazipaşa, Mithatpaşa, Yeşilyurt, Fahrettinpaşa and Kavaklı level crossings become underpasses and overpasses. Tarsus is divided into two as north and south. We have no problems with the vehicle transition. Our problem is our citizens who will pass on foot. The situation of pedestrians will be very difficult. Crossing from north to south will be very difficult for pedestrians. It is the train passing through our heart, entering underground from Gazipaşa and leaving Kavaklı. If this does not happen, then enter from Mithatpaşa. I look at places where there are many pedestrian crossings. As a result, this is our offers. It is completely underneath. We will support all kinds of projects that the government will do for our city, but if this project is realized as such, there is no problem for vehicles, but I think it will not be an efficient project for our pedestrians. It divides Tarsus into two and brings with it many troubles. The project for the railroad between Adana-Tarsus and Mersin on 4 lines should be well studied in the name of Tarsus. ”
