Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) has solved financial problems and restarted the works on the F7 Rumelihisarüstü-Aşiyan funicular line, the construction of which started on June 2017, 4, but was stopped after a while. The event, which was held for the re-production of the line, was held with the attendance of İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu. İmamoğlu at the event; Czech Consulate General in Istanbul Jiri Cistecky, Sarıyer Mayor Şükrü Genç and IMM senior management accompanied. İmamoğlu, who received technical information about the line from Pelin Alpkökin, Head of IMM Rail Systems Department, started his speech with the following words:
“We are in one of the most beautiful spots of the Bosphorus. We are at the crossroads of Sarıyer and Beşiktaş. This is the finular line between Rumelihisarüstü Aşiyan. We are making the beginning of this. I wouldn't want to make this start like this. It is not my style. Because a project should be designed in the best way. The most correct choices should be made. Then, the financing model of such projects should be clarified so that no institutions and organizations experience any problems. If this is achieved, the last part of the work remains; tender. Meeting with the institution that will manufacture the most accurate with a transparent tender. Here, we complain especially about the financing part. These processes are not well planned in this sense and unfortunately they have suffered and suffered. I wish we hadn't done so, I wish we wouldn't need to plan such a ceremony for the start of the day, planning the repayment of the underground subways, planning the payment plan. This is not true. But I have to inform the society as well. When we consider the manufacturing and design process of this 800-meter-long line, which is especially necessary for vehicle manufacturing, about 11 - 12 months, we set ourselves as the target for October 2021. We will commission this line. Hopefully, this line will have a carrying capacity of 6 thousand passengers per hour in two directions.
After his speech, İmamoğlu came across the cameras and answered journalists' questions about the agenda. The questions of journalists and the answers of Imamoglu to the questions were as follows:
İmamoğlu, mother of the Emir of Qatar receives around Istanbul Channel 44 acres of land in the attribute fields the question about the opening of zoning, "In Turkey, the agenda of the Turkish people; unemployment, economy. Agenda of the people in Istanbul; unemployment, economy. We can add; earthquake. So (Kanal Istanbul) is not even in your mind; against adultery, but in a hurry. So there are reasons why they hurry. I always say; he is a handful of people. It is very precious for them. I am following you, inch by inch. I will go to the Ministry of Urbanization at 10.00 tomorrow, it is, but it is from Qatar, but it is from this country, but it is from this country. I will make my objection by claiming that there is a lot more. We will never allow the people of Istanbul to be betrayed on the legal ground. ”
“CHANNEL ISTANBUL MEANS ITS OVERDOWN OF ISTANBUL”
Changes in the development plans of Kanal Istanbul are constantly on the agenda. Most recently, a 44-acre land bought by the Emir of Qatar was on the agenda. He returned to the land, commodity and commercial and residential areas on reconstruction. How will you evaluate this?
“We are following the agenda about Kanal Istanbul one by one. We are also carrying out some studies that support the process with all scientific data, reveal the mistakes and prove how correct our stance against Kanal Istanbul is 100 percent and 1 million percent. Let me state this: In Istanbul, instead of a process in which innocent people continue their lives in their earthquake-resistant buildings, where innocent planning has been waiting for years - but in the Ministry of Urbanization but in IMM - you, this process about Kanal Istanbul 6-7 you will finish the month, hang the plans of 100 thousand, 5000 and 1000. What is this rush for? For whom? Who does it serve? İstanbullu of the Turkish people in Turkey, our people, our citizens is there a rush on this issue? In Turkey, the agenda of the Turkish people; unemployment, economy. Agenda of the people in Istanbul; unemployment, economy. We can add; earthquake. So (Kanal Istanbul) is not even in your mind; against adultery, but in a hurry. So there are reasons why they hurry. I always say; he is a handful of people. It is very precious for them. I am following you, inch by inch. I will go to the Ministry of Urbanization at 10.00 tomorrow, it is, but it is from Qatar, but it is from this country, but it is from this country ... Whoever made this investment, that these plans were prepared for a handful of people, that Istanbul meant massacres, millions of betrayals to Istanbul I will make my objection by claiming that there is a lot more. Legal processes continue. We will never allow the people of Istanbul to be betrayed on the legal ground. We continue following. ”
HAGIA SOPHIA RESPONSE
The most spoken subject of the past days was Hagia Sophia. Your failure to make a statement on the subject was also evaluated by some sections. What will be your evaluations regarding the conversion of Hagia Sophia from museum to mosque?
“Once the decision of the Council of State is good. We can say that, but this alone is not enough. This society has concerns. Expressing these concerns a year ago, Mr. President risks especially in the international arena. What changed? So do these risks stop or not? Are the international threats that especially the members of the Muslim mass, our Muslim brothers and even our people face? So this decision does not cause a direction deviation. I mean, not me, but I think they or their interlocutors should answer. I made my explanation today, you can see the details from there. I express it again; spiritual, Turkey matters such as property, our people, our people in Turkey would bring benefits to the Turkish people, will be happy, of course, if the gain credibility in the international arena 'I'm here,' I say. But this process does not pass without questioning, discussing and speaking. Even this is not enough. I am not someone who looks at the process as simple as tweeting this issue in a word or a sentence. ”
JOURNAL RESPONSE: “WHEN YOU USE ISTANBUL'S RESOURCES FOR PUBLIC BENEFITS, THE WORKS WILL RYTHMICALLY”
Many subway lines were unfinished. 565 million liras of IMM was seized. Will there be an attempt on this?
“An institution that will take 7-8 years has a receivable when we arrive, we have a compromise ground or a process burden related to planning. It was a work in progress. I'm putting this side of the job somewhere. But I want to remind the public that: On the day we took office, a public bank closed down the credit resources of our municipality with limits, and did not make it available. A public bank has blocked the money donated by millions of people, millions of pounds, and 10 thousands of people. It is a public bank that has blocked the process that will reach the citizens now and allow the use of the victims. I express that this kind of understanding, which does not even look at the phone, cannot manage the phone, and manages the process with political instructions, is a process that must be deciphered completely to the immoral public, while a monetary account that is normally used for financing a project should normally protect, cooperate with our municipality and be in touch. . It is a shame, a pity. We follow the process. We also follow these immoral attitudes. Such an operation has been done. Conscientiously, we continue to question legally. But let's underline that: As IMM, when you use the resources, blessings of our municipality and Istanbul, not in someone's channel, not in someone's area, but in the public interest and public interest, we are here to prove how these things will be rhythmic and we will do it. Nobody should be worried. Of course, we are going through an economically difficult period. But our first issue, especially in transportation, is the metro. We are taking firm, decisive steps regarding these lines. We made signatures in terms of financing that have not been achieved so far. After that, we will continue to throw. ”
What are your studies about Sarıyer?
“A neglected surprise meets me every day in Sarıyer. Matters delayed by neglecting many initiated jobs are annoying. Here is one of them, this is our finular line. We have a very special preparation for Duatepe. In other words, it is very sad that Duatepe was perplexed in the past and the process of using it in an uncertain manner is currently being experienced. We intend to use Duatepe as a tourism destination. We have a very special preparation and surprise. The days when we will announce this to our people of Sarıyer are close. With a competition, we will take Duatepe to a very special point. Two of the surprises. The third one is Atatürk Urban Forest. He had been on the agenda of the Assembly for 6-7 months. Hopefully the name will be approved in these sessions. It will be called 'Atatürk Urban Forest'. We hung our sign, then we will hang the stronger. I can not understand why a thousand 100 acres of land is not presented to the people of Istanbul and why the rate is waited… In order to contribute to the real development of this country, the seedlings of fruit seedling and fruit growing in Büyükdere for the development of fruit growing, Istanbul, The fact that it stands in one of the most beautiful points of Turkey burns everywhere. It would be so sad. I was excited when I traveled. A moment before the 300 thousand square meters area of hope and Sariyer our people as well as to all of Istanbul, however, that that both the fruit before it lost the first actual start function and there tree seedlings that will of Istanbul and contribute to Turkey by protecting the identity of one of the incubators of the first republic. It is very precious to present the inactive, inactive, almost 1,5 million square meters of green space to the service of Sarıyer in just 1,5 - 2 years. Sarıyer is already green but every green you get here touches the people of Istanbul. We have other works, but I wanted to explain these valuable points. Let them follow us, very good works are coming. We will succeed together. ”
