Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğlu, had restarted the construction work of the “Ümraniye-Ataşehir-Göztepe Metro Line”, a project that had stopped since 2017, on September 20, 2019. İmamoğlu examined the work on the line, which is still under construction, despite the pandemic process that affected the whole world. Descending to the Ataşehir Station construction site, which is approximately 25 meters deep, İmamoğlu received information about the works from the Rail Systems Department Head Pelin Alpkökin. Ataşehir Mayor Battal İlgezdi also accompanied İmamoğlu. İmamoğlu and the accompanying delegation got on a business vehicle after the examinations and made a 500-meter trip along the metro line tunnel.
Watching the operation of the tunnel boiler TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine), İmamoğlu shared the following information about the line: “It was a stopped project since 2017. It is a line that starts from Ataşehir, takes intensity of Göztepe and meets Ümraniye at the same time. It is expected to have a 400-capacity line per day. So this line had to walk. Our friends made credit attempts about this construction site. This is the situation from 2017 to 2019. We mobilized the construction site at that time by providing a financing of 175 million Euros. Intensive work has been carried out since September 2019. 2 CPCs are running. The performance of the TBM here reached a distance of 1 kilometer. 2 more CPCs will be launched in May and June. We will act fast. We will commission a subway line with 11 stops, reaching about 16 kilometers. Our intention is to put this line into operation in mid-2022. Ms. Pelin just said, she is gratifying; I think TBMs will be finished by the end of 2021. Other construction work will of course continue. I hope that in 2022, we will present a very valuable subway, which serves on this busy line starting from Göztepe Park and ending in Ümraniye, to Istanbul residents. ”
