Minister Karaismailoğlu explained why they built the 1262-meter-long double-tube tunnel and then the 270-meter-long bridge in Nallıhan District of Ankara, although they have the means to build a divided road.
Adil Karaismaloğlu, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, made observations on the Ankara-Yenikent-Ayaş-Beypazarı-Nallıhan Road. Karaismailoğlu said, “112 kilometers of the Ankara-Yenikent-Ayaş-Beypazarı-Nallıhan road was completed as a divided road. On the 5 kilometers, divided road construction continues. The 23-kilometer non-divided road between Nallıhan from where we are. I hope we have made the decision on this and started the tender process. The tunnel you see behind us is 1262 meters long and then consists of a 270 meter long double tube bridge. Of course, we could pass here as a divided road without building a tunnel, but we are building this tunnel to protect Nallıhan Bird Paradise. "It has been prepared with great devotion so that the birds and wildlife here are not affected."
Minister Karaismailoğlu made a series of visits and examinations in Nallıhan district of Ankara today. Minister Karaismailoğlu, who first visited the Nallıhan AK Party District Municipality, later met with the members of the AK Party District Office.

"We knit every point knot by loop."
Stating that they have carried out a great work in every part of the country, Minister Karaisnmailoğlu said, “We almost knit every point by loop. On the one hand, we are making openings, on the other hand we are laying the foundations. We are making almost revolutionary investments in the field of transportation and infrastructure. Our country has made a great leap forward in the last 18 years. "We are doing unimaginable things under the leadership of our president."
Underlining that they have increased the length of the divided road from 6 thousand kilometers to 28 thousand kilometers, Karaismailoğlu said, “18 years ago, when there was a 50-kilometer tunnel, we increased it to 600 kilometers. We increased our airports from 26 to 56. We increased the number of air passengers from 30 million to 210 million. A lot of unimaginable work has been done. These increasingly continue. In the coming years, we will continue to increase our great progress in the railway. Again, we continue to strengthen our existence in space. We launch our satellites into space. There, we make our power and existence felt to the whole world ”.
"We earned 28 billion lira of fuel and time on a road of 18 thousand kilometers."
Minister Karaismailoplu, who said "We have built so many roads and tunnels and ask what happened, we have earned 28 billion lira of fuel and time with this 18 thousand km road only" continued his words as follows: "Just this? When you look at the accident statistics, we prevented thousands of accidents in return for 28 thousand kilometers of road. We saved thousands of lives. In this way alone, we see that these are great businesses on a world scale. We make the highest quality transportation and infrastructure projects on a world scale and offer them to one of our citizens. As we always say, transportation and infrastructure projects give vitality and life to the place they pass like a river. They increase employment, production and tourism and strengthen the quality of life of our citizens. From now on, our projects will increasingly continue. "
"We started the tender process of the 23-kilometer non-divided road section."
Noting that they are in the Nallıhan Wildlife Protection area, Karaismailoğlu gave the following statements in his statement:
“This is Nallıhan Bird Paradise, 179 different birds live here. The double tube tunnel you see behind us is an extension of the Ankara-Nallıhan road. The project we are on is the Ankara-Yenikent-Ayaş-Beypazarı-Nallıhan road. We are talking about a total of 140 kilometers. 112 kilometers of this was completed as a divided road. In the 5 kilometers, divided road construction continues. The 23-kilometer non-divided road between Nallıhan from where we are. I hope we have made the decision on this and started the tender process. We will make this road available to Nallıhan and Ankara residents as soon as possible. The double tube tunnel you see behind us consists of a bridge of 1262 meters long and then 270 meters long. Of course, we could pass here as a divided road without building a tunnel, but we are building this tunnel to protect Nallıhan Bird Paradise. It has been prepared with great devotion so that the birds and wildlife here are not affected. These projects we have done will bring great value here. It will also make it easier to reach here. In addition, this place is located on the Aladağ stream, which is a branch of the Sarıyer Dam. Again, after completing the bridge and tunnel constructions here at the end of 2021 and making the tender on the missing 23-kilometer road, Ankara-Nallıhan will have a comfortable, safe and secure road and will add value to the value of the region. "
"There is an investment of $ 5,7 billion by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure only between March and October."
Minister Karaismailoğlu thanked President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for his support in their work and said, “We congratulate all our colleagues, engineers, brothers and sisters who work with great faith and devotion in our construction sites. Even during this epidemic period, we have taken the necessary precautions at all our construction sites since March. We have a team of hundreds of thousands of people working devotedly without closing any construction site. We express our gratitude to them. Thanks to them, our projects continue one by one. On the one hand we are making openings, on the other hand we are laying the foundations. There is an investment of $ 5,7 billion by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure only between March and October. While the whole world is fighting an epidemic, we continue to increase our investments by taking measures. In the coming days, when we complete our projects in Nallıhan and Ankara and bring them to our citizens, their happiness will be an honor for us ”.
