GLOVES FOLLOWING GLASSES WELDING
İmamoğlu later moved his examinations in Edirnekapı to Balat. İmamoğlu, along with the top management of IMM, conducted construction of the Eminönü-Eyüpsultan-Alibeyköy Tram Line, the construction of which started in November of 2016 but could not be completed in the planned time. Imamoglu, walking along the rails about the 2 kilometer road from Balat to Feshane stations, received information from the authorities. İmamoğlu, which coincided with the welding process made by the workers between the rails, received information from the employees by pausing. Imamoglu, wearing gloves and goggles, welding process, carried out with the guidance of employees. During this time, color images occurred.
Imamoglu, journalists answered questions on the agenda on the rails. The questions asked by Imamoglu and the answers given by the IMM President were as follows:
“We want to finish the line before the beer”
The work started again. Is it displayed as one of the lines?
Let's not stop, let's call it a little slower line. Previously there was a planned allowance. It had slowed down because it was over; but the company continued to work a little bit again. We are working on additional resources. We want to get this place ready for 2020. Not only this line, but also the passage of Unkapanı at 2020… Because there was a lack of design, there was a lack of projects. My friends would go to them. Until the last stop, both the transfer center connecting with the metro line and the Sirkeci-Eminönü section, all designs of the junction points with the pedestrian and rail system continue. A line that we accelerate and care very much. There is a very busy transportation of people from Alibeyköy to Eminönü and Sirkeci. But more important to us, we are talking about a touristic area all day long. On one side, a beautiful line was designed to watch the Golden Horn. But unfortunately it progressed slowly. We want to finish it as soon as possible. There are great destinations here. We have museums on the banks of the Golden Horn. We design beautiful green spaces. There are also historical areas from Balat to Eyüpsultan. It is a very productive line that contributes to both the touristic and contemporary human transportation and also the one stopping at Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey line. Therefore, we are working hard to bring this beautiful line to the people of Istanbul at 2020.
When you say 2020, when?
Speaking of optimism, it's late summer. A little more realistic, it's like the end of the year. We can accelerate. Of course, this is also about financing. There are some technical issues inside, my friends concentrate on them. But I hope we will end here with sacrifice.
“ALLAH'S RIGHT IS THREE”
We have seen Kadir Topbaş in ceremonies about this line before, then Mevlüt Uysal. Now, as the third mayor, you are investigating this line. How much finance do I need? How much is left as a percentage?
You know that Allah has three rights. In fact, 35 stands at the edge of the total cost. No funding has been designed before. Approximately percent 60 was designed and a financing was found. When it is finished, the firm paused before the election and when we arrived, with some motivations, the process was gradually advanced; but to show the end of the day, the contractor is rightly demanding funding. So we're going to finish the remaining 35. We attach special importance to this line. Because he's busy enough with the historic fabric. Some places have obviously been abused because they are as neglected as they are busy. And we eliminate these abuses quickly. This is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. We have a high degree of importance for him.
Will the financing be provided with foreign loans?
Of course, we search every source. Foreign sources seem more appropriate in this period. We have more productive talks. There are some sources standing by. But here, compliance, compliance, longer term, some permits ... All important. Some of our work will come to the agenda of the Assembly. Some issues have Ankara approval. We're following it holistically.
“TRAFFIC YA TO GÖKSU,“ WATER ”RESPONSE TO EROĞLU
Tevfik Göksu has had a traffic problem in Istanbul for the 6 month, 25 hasn't been there for years mı?
He probably wanted to make a joke. But I guess he walked a little too much on the lawn. He couldn't do it barefoot. Anyway. The public has understood what you mean. I don't need to answer that.
Former Minister of Forestry and Water Affairs Veysel Eroğlu, after your declaration of drought in Istanbul, "I've been working for a week, my plans are ready if requested, we will help with the President's order," he said. Will you have a request?
Former ISKI General Manager, minister. My advice to them is that if there is an opportunity or opportunity, he can dialogue with us without waiting for an order. We'il look for him. Such urgent and important public issues do not wait orders. That's my first advice. The second issue is that; There is a Melen problem. Look, today is the year that should be finished as of now, the year 3 is the year that they announced. In other words, the end date of 2016, which they announced as the first week of December, which must end in 3, has passed the year. Why isn't it over? There's still no chance of running out, because there's extra investment. That investment should come out. And we talk about it. Melen is finished. We did not say, 'Nothing has been done. Thank you very much for the work done. Of course it will. Is 25 easy for years? You've ruled for a quarter of a century. We applaud and appreciate it. But Melen's not over. This Melen's problems of not ending, problems will be solved as soon as possible will be put into service. In other words, there should not be any delay or financial problems. It must be overcome as soon as possible. I said that the President of the Republic should ask the account of this mistake. I didn't say anything else. 3 is the date they call the year will open in the past. Other than that, as I said; If he wants to provide us with information, I think there is no need to order, this is the public service, our door is open. We'il look for him. My General Manager of İSKİ calls them and asks for the information they have. If there is, we will use a contribution with pleasure. So every idea, every good understanding produced in this country is open to our door.
“WHY MELEN DAM IS NOT COMPLETED”
The ruling says that Melen comes into play in every discourse. Melen is said to have provided water to Istanbul. Is Melen in or out?
Melen's flooding, but we're talking about the dam. When does Melen flood? It's printing now. But it can't be printed in the middle of summer or it's going to a minimum. Why? That the water of the Melen River was low at the time. Why is the Melen Dam constructed? Always there for the formation of water reserves. 30 is an annual project, everyone has a labor. I mean, somebody thought about it in the 80 years. Then someone made this decision without state planning and so on and so on. It is said that; It's over at 2016. And water will accumulate there, even in the most troubled moment, water can be flooded from there, even in the driest moment. But now that the Melen River rushes, yes, water comes from us. Water comes from Istırancalar. Everyone's involved. So there's nothing wrong with that. The problem is: Why didn't the Melen Dam end? What are the obstacles to be completed, what are the obstacles? And how will these be solved? Let us know quickly about this. It's that simple.
After completing the investigations, İmamoğlu made Friday prayers at the Valide Sultan Mosque in Aksaray.
CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES SINCE 2016
Work on Eminönü-Eyüpsultan-Alibeyköy Tram Line started in November 2016. When the 10,1 kilometer 14 station rail system is completed, the 15 can carry one thousand passengers in one direction per hour. The line covering the districts of Fatih and Eyüpsultan will continue along the Golden Horn coast of the Historic Peninsula to Eyüpsultan and from there to the IMM Alibeyköy Pocket Bus Station. In the tram line, continuous energy supply system from the ground applied for the first time in Turkey (catenery free) is applied. The system, which will eliminate the image pollution caused by “catenary wires,, is based on the fact that the tramway receives energy from a third rail placed between two rails. In this way, the vehicle will be controlled through a fully electronic system.
