WHO CANNOT REACH THE RAILWAY STAY BACK, CANNOT DEVELOP
Ordu City Council President Ömer Aydın: Railway is a transportation network that does not aim to reach the neighboring regions and neighboring provinces easily. Before the railways in the 18th century, transportation was extremely primitive and the volume of trade was extremely low. Railway transportation, which started in England, made a tremendous acceleration by leaping from there to America. Whoever has kept pace with that momentum has been able to get his share of development today, whoever has not been able to keep up has not been able to get his share. Railway increases the welfare of all provinces in the Black Sea. It does not only raise the head of the Army. It makes Giresun also bow its head to the sky, it makes Trabzon, Rize, Hopa, Artvin and ultimately our neighbor Georgia and Azerbaijan fall into the sky.
SAMSUN-SARP SHOULD NOT BE THE VICTOR OF 'TRABZONY'
Ordu Olay Newspaper Concessionaire and Ordu Chamber of Commerce and Industry Railway Platform SözcüSü Zeki Mesut Özel: It is a citizenship and essential need we want. We see it as our most natural right to demand this from the political power, to demand it from the authorities and to demand it in a fair and equitable manner. Our Republic is one of the Turkey's eastern Black Sea to reach the railway. We alacaklıyız once the Republic of Turkey. This is discussed and talked about, it just doesn't come to life. Different reasons such as geography, crises like this. I should come up with this as a delayed project as follows. Now is the age of communication and transportation. We agree on this important need of the region, but I have to say that there is something like this. Our friend in Trabzon is using some of his political advantages to set a route for them.
SARP Samsun-TURKEY MAKES CONTRIBUTION
Giresun City Council President Mürşit Güler: It is absolutely necessary for us to produce both agricultural products in the Eastern Black Sea region and in terms of fruit growing that can occur in the provinces, the development of the industry, and the transportation of the product to the other world countries in order to make more production. Railway is necessary in every sense. In social terms, in terms of tourism, in terms of production, in the sense of the country's economy, the railway is necessary for transforming hazelnuts into a product here and reaching abroad, providing employment. The Samsun-steep railway, the Republic of Turkey will contribute to the economy.
6 PROVINCES 60 ACCIDENTS OR 2 VILLAGES 2 ACCIDENTS?
Former Rize City Council President Metin Topçu: I wholeheartedly agree with the Samsun-Sarp railway. However, it is more prominent that some circles do not handle the train route in this way, but from Erzincan to Trabzon. Trabzon-Erzincan is not possible, high-speed train is not possible at all. It is an interesting event to cancel the tender to be held from Samsun to Ordu. We experience such events a lot. Politicians had also promised that the tender was held at that time, but the tender was canceled later. Deputies should question them. Why was it canceled? Why wasn't it tendered? Now, six provinces from Samsun to Sarp, sixty districts, two provinces from Erzincan to Trabzon, two counties. This needs to be considered.
Samsun-SARP is a matter TURKEY
Ünye Chamber of Commerce and Industry President İrfan Akar: The railway issue is a late project for the Black Sea. It is obvious that we are not using the railroad as much as necessary anymore. Today, transportation is done by road and this should decrease to the level of 10-20 percent. Some products are now getting very expensive. That's why we need to use the railroad very effectively. The time for this has come and gone. This project will contribute not only to Ünye but also to the region. We will continue to demand that our government reevaluate this system as soon as possible. We will talk about these again when we go to Ankara. Samsun-Sarp is an issue related to the economy of the country.
BLACK SEA WANTS SAMSUN-SARP
Servet Şahin, President of Ordu Chamber of Commerce and Industry: While İdris Naim Şahin was the minister, we had 14 requests and 12 of them. Only the port and the railway remained. We want the Samsun-Sarp railway to pass through Ordu. Not only us, but all provinces on the line want it. I hope it will be because building rail is less costly and longer lasting than building a highway. a way that requires less maintenance. Samsun-Sarp provides new business paths to the region both economically and socially. Maybe we will be at the mouth of the road from Europe to Asia, not the region. When this road is over, I hope we will continue on the Black Sea-Mediterranean road. I believe this job will happen.
