Noting that they will be involved as a metropolitan municipality to prevent similar incidents, Mayor Büyükkılıç said:
“Our current location is the main junction leading to our Örenşehir and Hamurcu neighborhoods. The lands and livelihoods of our citizens coming from this intersection are also on the opposite side. As such, trouble comes to the fore inevitably. This is of course an important main artery known as the Adana road. The main thing here is to show the will to overcome it. Here, we met with the official of our Railways and Highways. We had meetings with our regional manager in Ankara. We will be its followers. If there is a problem related to expropriation after the project emerges, we will try to follow up and resolve whatever is needed both locally and on Ankara basis. Our governor was very sensitive to this issue. As always, it reached our regional manager. We can see the expectations to re-evaluate the intersection here and to overcome the railroad crossing here either through the barrier or by arranging this light to solve the problem. We will follow this on your behalf to our esteemed headman, together with the valuable residents of our neighborhood. You see this place, it needs to be reviewed at this crossroads. This is a very dangerous event. Because this is the transit road. No one should ignore the risky environment in which all vehicles coming from the west of our city exit here and go to reach a 50-100 meter junction from the opposite direction. One person today, how many people tomorrow. God forbid. There is such a risk. We will all embrace this, we will care. We will strive to do our part. We will follow it together. God bless you. Our neighborhood's esteemed headman, delegation and presidents. In the morning, our Mustafa İlmek President came to the scene of the incident and showed the necessary attention. Thank you ”he said.
"WE WILL FOLLOW WHAT YOU NEED ON THIS MATTER"
Stating that the incident is very sad and they will follow every work that needs to be done, Mayor Büyükkılıç said, “After all, if there is a regular intersection here, if the work is done, it will be the responsibility of everyone to comply with the rules. It would be a more reasonable approach in terms of responsibility. The issue is we are not looking for responsible, it should be a loss of life Our citizen should not be a victim. We will follow up whatever is necessary in this regard. "He used the expressions.
