CHP Bursa Provincial Chairman İsmet Karaca pointed out that the 6.1-kilometer-long tram line to be built between Emek-Şehir Hospital will cost 600 million TL before and said, “Two years have passed. Has there been a devaluation in our country within 2 years? Has there been 2, 100 percent inflation every year? They say that now "the cost of this line is 150 billion TL." Turkey's most expensive metro station will soon be here, "he said.
"City Hospital, 20 Kilometers Outside The City"
CHP's Karaca, who made a statement about the project at Emek Station, said, “The project of the new line was drawn by the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality and was tendered by the source of the Ministry of Transport in the past weeks. There are some questions here. The hospital, whose name is the city hospital, is 7 kilometers from the nearest point of the city and 20 kilometers on average. What is the city hospital doing 20 kilometers away? If it was built to such a distant point, 1.6 billion TL would not be spent on the new line. This resource would also be used elsewhere, ”he reacted.
"The AKP Rule Introduced Us with Patient Guaranteed Hospitals, Passenger Pass Guaranteed"
CHP member Karaca stated that uninterrupted access to the city hospital is impossible, and 4 hospitals in the city are closed and said, “The public is not given enough information and is not enlightened. Does the Ministry of Transport grant this line or will it apply the build-operate-transfer model? The AKP government introduced us to the guaranteed road, tunnel and bridge. The AKP government introduced us to hospitals with patient guarantee. I hope that a new line will not be built here with passenger guarantee, and the next period, our Bursa citizens will not have a new economic problem, ”he said.
"Turkey's Most Expensive Line"
Recalling the words of Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Alinur Aktaş of AKP, 'We want to open it in September 2019', CHP's Karaca said, “1 year and 1 month have passed but they were able to bid. But he has his own statement that it will cost 600 million TL. Two years have passed. Has there been a devaluation in our country within 2 years? Has there been 2, 100 percent inflation every year? They say that now "the cost of this line is 150 billion TL." Turkey's most expensive metro station will soon be here, "he said and Izmir cities such as Istanbul was the highlight will be the most costly in terms of length of line in comparison.
