However, after the discussions, we have actually stopped working ”.


With the tender registration number 5/2020 of the 184956th Regional Directorate of State Railways in Malatya, there was a development regarding the wall that started to be built on the 12-kilometer railway route passing through Diyarbakır.

Chamber of Architects and TMMOB Diyarbakır Provincial Coordination Board applied to the Regional Administrative Court for the suspension of the execution, and the Diyarbakır Chamber of Commerce and Industry Directorate to the Ministry of Transport, which is similar to the "Berlin Wall", to the Ministry of Transport, "There is no public and public interest, stop the tender immediately. ”Had made the call.

TCDD Manager: We actually stopped working

After these developments, the Ministry of Transport stopped the project. Speaking to our newspaper Güneydoğu Ekspres, TCDD Diyarbakır Road Manager Ramazan Yurtseven said, “We have not yet received an official letter from our ministry that the project has been stopped. However, after the discussions, we have actually stopped working ”.

Why did NGOs oppose?

While citizens expressed their reactions on social media with the tag they opened with the name of "# Diyarbakıraduvaristemiyouz", a statement three days ago 21 NGOs stated that the project did not benefit the public and society.

In the statement of NGOs, “We think that this project will not benefit the people of Diyarbakır and will have a negative impact on the quality of life of the people. "It bothers us that the project is so far from scientific and technical competence, socialism and public interest."
