Marmara Municipalities Union and Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Assoc. Dr. Tahir Büyükakın made an examination in the Kuzu Yayla region to see the Kartepe Cable Car Project route on site. Making a statement after the examination, Mayor Büyükakın said, “We have brought the ropeway project that Kartepe has been longing for for a long time, until the tender stage. I hope the ending point is where we are and also the place where the cable car will step on. The project of our approximately five-kilometer ropeway line has also been completed.

Reviewing all the details of the project once again, Mayor Büyükakın said, “Our Park Gardens teams also plan the areas where our citizens can rest, stay, travel, walk and ski when they come to this region by cable car. I hope that when the cable car works are finished, the social facilities and outbuildings in this area will be prepared ”.
President Büyükakın, who also gave the information that "Our friends are working on where the chair lift lines will be built, on the one hand," said, "When this project is finished, it is clear that it will make a great contribution to the tourism of the region. Hopefully, a much better touristic potential will be added to a tourism region like Kartepe with the cable car. In fact, it will be an extremely valuable investment for Kocaeli as a whole. We are planning to do it with the resources of our Metropolitan Municipality. We are currently planning to carry out the operational process together with our Kartepe Municipality. We also do his work. I hope this beautiful project will be delivered to Kartepe in a period of two years. kazanWe will go,” he said.
