WE WILL CONTAIN VALUE
Kartepe Mayor Hüseyin Üzülmez said, “Every election was on the agenda, but in the previous elections, we promised this. We have made great struggles to achieve this. Legal permits, procedures to be obtained, took a long time, both locally and centrally. But at the end of a 3,5 year struggle, the tender process was completed. Mr. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has provided us with great support. The cable car will make an important contribution to Kartepe tourism. At least 500 thousand people will receive this service annually. This will create a new tourist potential. The introduction of the cable car will have a great contribution both locally, across the country and internationally. ”
