The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure will use most of its resources for metro construction this year. Konya Metro was not included in the investment programs prepared by the Ministry this year.
KONYA METROSUNA 1 LEAD
In Konya, the subject of metro has been in the languages for many years. Every manager, president, minister, and even all of the Prime Ministers, who have been on their way to Konya, have repeatedly promised the metro investment, which seems to be delayed this year. The Ministry has allocated 7.5 Billion TL budget for this year's railway projects. Konya Metro was not included in this budget. The Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Mehmet Cahit Turan stated that they will carry out the project in cooperation with the Ministry and the Metropolitan Municipality. Even the Minister Turhan said that the subway, which is planned to be built in Konya, has reached the tender stage. However, 2019 is not included in the investment program list of the metron that is planned to be built in Konya in the Presidential Investment Program. Istanbul and Ankara are the top of the list. According to the information to the Istanbul metro 3.2 billion, Ankara will be sent to 1 Billion TL. Thus, Konya's metro dream remained in another spring. (Source: Dominance)
