According to the news of Erdin Ağdede from Özgürkocaeli;“There has been a very important development in Kartepe regarding the ropeway project, whose foundation was laid in 2018 and known as the '50-year dream'. As it will be remembered, the contractor firm Valter Elevator could not continue the project due to economic contraction and exchange rate fluctuations. Thereupon, Kartepe Municipality canceled the contract. Although Kartepe Mayor Mustafa Kocaman said “We will do it” at every opportunity, it seemed difficult for the municipality to fulfill this promise due to the economic situation it was in. Finally, the Metropolitan Municipality stepped in and took over the project.
