The Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD) held an auction at the end of September.

53.8 million 384 thousand Turkish lira was determined for the tender, which included the work of building a new line of 733 km from Mazıdağı from the railway serving between Diyarbakır and Mardin. Ederay-Image-Mataleks partnership gave the lowest bid in the tender, which was attended by many companies. The mentioned partnership determined a cost of 380 million 615 thousand liras for the construction of the new railway line and submitted its offer. Among the companies participating in the tender was Cengiz İnşaat, which is known for its proximity to the AKP. The offer of Cengiz İnşaat was 489 million 637 thousand liras. After the tender, TCDD evaluated the offers and gave the job to Cengiz İnşaat, which offered 109 million liras more than the lowest offer. Cengiz İnşaat and TCDD signed a contract last week.


Grand National Assembly of Industry, Trade, Energy, Natural Resources, Information and Technology Commission CHP Group SözcüSu Tahsin Tarhan said the public suffered great damage.

Tarhan said, “According to the tender law, it is necessary to hold tenders in a low-cost, impartial and fair manner by protecting the interests of public institutions. The tender in question covers the railway line that will be built specifically for a fertilizer plant. How accurate is it to give this province to Cengiz İnşaat? We are talking about a difference of 109 million pounds. In this environment, while evaluating the most suitable offers, this is nothing but extravagance. The public has been harmed openly here. ”


Tarhan also sent a question proposal to the Parliament with the request of Mehmet Cahit Turhan, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, asked for answers to the following questions;
- For what reasons has Cengiz İnşaat's proposal been accepted? Why are the construction companies that offer less offers than Cengiz İnşaat not evaluated?
- While the Ministry of Transport, which is one of the most damaging public institutions, has to save, what are the reasons for the tender to remain with Cengiz İnşaat, which offered 109 million more offers?
-Ederay-İmaj-Metaleks partnership is the tender given by your ministry before?
