Sabiha Gökçen Airport will make the Metro Line

The metro lines that will provide the connection between Sabiha Gökçen Airport and the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality were transferred to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure by the Presidential Decree. There are also Söğütlüçeşme-İncirli subways which are considered as an alternative to the metrobus density between the transferred lines. CHP council member Tarik Balyali, 9 Sabiha Gokcen Airport opened a year ago, still not be reached by the metro line by drawing attention to the "IMM did not move as fast as necessary, the ministry came into play when the shortage of money," he said.

SözcüAccording to the news of Özlem GÜVEMLİ, according to the Presidential decree published in the Official Gazette, Sabiha Gökçen-Kaynarca, Sabiha Gökçen-Kurtköy Junction sections, Altunizade-Sabiha Gökçen Metro Line, Söğütlüçeşme-İncirli Metro Line The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure will do.

The construction work for the 7.4 kilometer metro connection between Sabiha Gökçen and Kurtköy was already carried out by the Ministry of Transport, while all other lines were the IMM project. Sabiha Gökçen-Kurtköy will be the extension line of the metro. Sabiha Gökçen-Kurtköy metro is still in the project stage. In the last year, the cost of the EIA process was announced as 760 million TL. This 6-long 3 bus line was scheduled to open in 2020.

Altunizade-Sabiha Gökçen Airport line, which has been transferred to the other metro project, is also included in İBB's 2019 investment program. The 28-kilometer line consists of 11 stations. The 31 km Incirli-Söğütlüçeşme metro project, which IBB determined as an alternative to the density in the metrobus line, was also expected to be completed by 2023.


CHP's IMM Assembly Member Tarık Balyalı said: “Since there is no money in the IMM budget, the metro lines that should be completed as soon as possible have been transferred to the ministry. Sabiha Gökçen, the second airport of Istanbul, which was opened 3 years ago, is the first airport to be opened 9 years before the opening of the 2009rd Airport, which still does not start the construction of the metro line and even the bus line. The airport was opened in 3, but it is still not possible to reach it by metro. Looking at Sabiha Gökçen, the situation at the XNUMXrd Airport seems to be normal. The IMM was very late in building a metro line to Sabiha Gökçen, so the ministry came into play. ”


Drawing attention to the Söğütlüçeşme-İncirli Line from the transferred lines, Balyalı said, “An important line to be built under the Metrobus line. As the CHP group, we recommend that the metrobus line is no longer capable for years and it should be supported by the metro line. İBB, who has not taken a step for this line, has been suffering from Istanbul for years. ”
