Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Ekrem İmamoğlumade examinations at the İçerenköy Station construction site of the Dudullu-Bostancı Metro Line Project.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğluAfter his visit to Çekmeköy Municipality, he made inspections at the İçerenköy Station construction site of the Dudullu-Bostancı Metro Line Project. Imamoglu and IMM senior management received a presentation about the project from the authorities before the examination, which took place 20 meters below the ground. After the presentation, İmamoğlu went down to the construction site and made a short speech. Describing the line as "one of the most effective lines on the South-North axis", İmamoğlu said, "It was supposed to end in 2019. However, this project has been experiencing problems for about 2-2,5 years. At first, a financial opportunity was provided, but after this opportunity could not be provided, it has almost completely stopped as of October 2018. A line without an investment plan. The approval of the investment plan was given by the central government in the past months. We are now looking ahead. We have research on financial opportunities," he said.
İY WE ARE PREFERRED IN USEFUL WORK ”
Stating that they care very much about this line, İmamoğlu said, bir It is a useful business. When we took office in Istanbul, almost 8 lines were stopped. He was not working. We want to complete them, finish them and prioritize the urgent works for Istanbul. We have to. Such projects define the future of life. When you produce an efficient project and give it to the people of Istanbul in a productive way, the people of Istanbul breathe, become happy, spend most of their lives in traffic and not suffer. If you put in front of people a matter that is not a priority at all; it becomes pointless. On the contrary, you create an environment in which people will suffer more. Just as we were prioritizing the subways, like Kanal Istanbul, which is desired to be placed on the agenda of Istanbul, I say again, the word of betrayal is not enough, it is a murder project. We just don't allow betrayal. But Kanal İstanbul is not betrayal alone. I say clearly: It is a murder project..
“WE WILL BRING THIS LINE FAST TO ISTANBUL PEOPLE”
After his speech, İmamoğlu took a collective photo with the employees of the construction site and answered the questions of the journalists at the construction site. The questions asked by Imamoglu and the answers given by the IMM President were as follows:
Ne How much more funding is needed for a 70 percent finished metro line? ”
This place costs 558 million Euros plus VAT. My friends have a little effort to reduce the cost of the revision, but this is obviously 3 percent. The figure currently needed is a financing cost of 200 million euros plus VAT. We are talking about a construction site that has been standing since October 2018. But here's an investment plan permit. We expect to be approved and announced in the first weeks of 2020. Subsequently, our financing activities will continue. Initially, loans were made with Iller Bank, but then this process was interrupted. Hence you entrust us. We will try. We would like to meet this valuable line with 4 transportation axes quickly.
DUDULLU-BOSTANCI WILL GO TO 21 MINUTES
Dudullu Bostancı Metro is 14,3 km long and has 13 stations.
Subway line; Maltepe, on the Anatolian side, with the most dense settlements, KadıköyConnects the districts of Ataşehir and Ümraniye. The line to be constructed with the state-of-the-art electro-mechanical system will serve as a “Full Automatic Driverless Metro” and can be operated once every 90 seconds. The metro, which will reduce Bostancı - Dudullu to 21 minutes, will carry 44 passengers in one direction per hour. “Full-Length Platform Separating Doors” will be used in stations to prevent falling by rail for safety. Within the scope of the investment, an underground parking lot with a total of 400 thousand 890 vehicles is built, including 2 in Bostancı and 200 thousand 3 in Kozyatağı. In the project, the construction of which started in February 90, the business slowed down at the point of stopping 2016 years ago. It continued this way until April 2,5. The subway line had tunnels that were about 2019 kilometers long and had been waiting for 2 - 1,5 years without permanent coating. As a result of the evaluation made with the contractor company, the production of permanent coating has started in these tunnels, which pose a risk starting from December. This study is planned to be completed by the end of June (2,5 months). Integration points of Dudullu Bostancı Line; Bostancı Station by Sea Transportation, Bostancı Station by Marmaray Line, Kadıköy-Kartal-Tavsantepe Metro Line and Kozyatagi Station, Üsküdar-Ümraniye-Çekmeköy Metro Line and Dudullu Station.
