Bursa High Speed Train Project has been 2012 years since 9, when its foundations were laid. For the project that could not be completed, everyone from the AKP deputies to the Ministry of Transport and TCDD officials announced that the high-speed train project to Bursa will be completed regularly several times a year.
According to the report of Halil Ataş from SÖZCÜ; “Waiting for high-speed trains in Bursa, which cannot get a share in central investments under AKP rule, continues. Bursa High Speed Train Project has been 2012 years since 9, when its foundations were laid.
"Empty Promises Wasted Time"
Making a statement about the High Speed Train Project, CHP Bursa Provincial Chairman İsmet Karaca said, “There is no train or railway yet. "AKP governments make Bursa and the people of Bursa waste time with empty promises," he said.
"Subjecting to the Treatment of Stepchildren"
Stating that Bursa was pushed to the second plan during the AKP period, Karaca used the following statements;
The AKP government, which stalled Bursa, which it treated as a stepchild, completed the Ankara-Sivas line. Tests on the performance of the Ankara-Sivas High Speed Train Line started on January 25.
Whether high speed train in every city of our country. Of course we have no promise to Yozgat and Sivas. Let them travel goodbye. However, we present to our countrymen the fact that Bursa was pushed to the second plan by the AKP government, Bursa could not receive the investments it deserved during the AKP period, and Bursa was poured into every field from healthcare to transportation.
"Binali Yıldırım had promised to be completed in 2017"
Reminding that the Minister of Transport of the time, Binali Yıldırım, promised that the High Speed Train line will be completed in 2017, Karaca said;
Binali Yıldırım was the Minister of Transport. He came, laid the foundation in Bursa, in 2012… Speaking at that ceremony, Binali Yıldırım, as the Minister of Transport… He says; “You know there are signs in construction; "We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the construction." We will now write on the signs; We apologize for the inconvenience to the opposition due to the ways and works we have done for the country. ”
Isn't it an assertive word? They were doing the road, but also apologized for the inconvenience they caused to the opposition. With the Bandırma-Bursa-Ayazma-Osmaneli railway, however, the lack of business of the AKP government, which has wasted the nation's money for years with guaranteed passage bridges, vehicle-guaranteed tunnels, patient-guaranteed hospitals, has once again emerged ...
According to Binali Yıldırım, it would be completed in 2017, and the opposition would be very uncomfortable with this great success… Is it over, did the high-speed train come to Bursa, did the train longing of the people of Bursa end? No! They said it will end in 2018, is it over, no!
"Erdogan's Election Statement Says That Will End In 2020"
Noting that the completion of the project was included in President Erdoğan's election declaration, Karaca said, “It was mentioned in the election manifesto of AKP President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2018 and it was promised that it will be completed in 2020. Did Recep Tayyip Erdogan keep his promise in his election manifesto? No!" used the expressions.
"They Blow Good News Every 2-3 Months"
Karaca said, "Unfortunately, the Bursa-Bilecik high-speed train project, which Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised politically by writing in the election statement that it will be completed in 2020, is still creeping," he said, "Now it did not happen in 2020, it will be completed in 2023 ... Even the lying shepherd in fairy tales. it was not so funny. The train will end, the train will arrive, the Bursa-Ankara journey will be reduced to 2 hours. They talk constantly, they give good news every 2-3 months… Newspapers make headlines. Fairy tale of course… Nothing is happening, ”he said.
"Thanks to you, this longing has reached 68 years"
Karaca criticized the High Speed Train project, which the AKP could not complete, with the following words;
Of course we will ask, where is Bursa's railway? Why doesn't it end? Why can't you finish? Where is that railway that you claim to be annoying to the opposition with its completion? The opposition will not be disturbed by your service to the country, it will be disturbed by the fact that you have been wandering around for years as good news and leaving those huge projects in which millions of liras of the nation were spent.
He would be uncomfortable when the nation's money was wasted. At the groundbreaking ceremony, we would like to tell those who inflated that "Bursa's 59-year longing for trains is over." Due to the incompetent financial management of the AKP, Bursa's longing for trains was 2012 years in 59, but thanks to you, it has increased to 68 years as of today… Bursa has been longing for trains for 68 years, on your account.
If you can actually complete it and start running it in 2023, the longing for the train in Bursa will be really over in Bursa exactly 1953 years after the Mudanya train line, which was closed in 70 and its rails were dismantled with the signature of Democratic Party member Adnan Menderes.
"High Speed Train Started, Freight Train Released"
Stating that the project started as a high speed train and later turned into a freight train business, Karaca ended his words as follows;
“In the project, which is announced to be built with the latest technological systems suitable for 250 kilometers, the distance between Bursa-Bilecik is 35 minutes, Bursa-Eskişehir is 1 hour, Bursa-Ankara is 2 hours and 15 minutes, Bursa-Istanbul is 2 hours 15 minutes, Bursa-Konya It was stated that 2 hours 20 minutes and the distance between Bursa and Sivas would decrease to 4 hours. Well, will it really be like that? No, it will not be like that.
Because a lot of water flowed under the bridges… At first, there was talk of high speed train, but nowadays, if it happens, it will be a 'high standard railway' ... Freight train will also run on the same line ...
Even this loss of standards, which started with a high-speed train and evolved into a freight train, is a picture of how the AKP has managed unsuccessful projects. It is understood that the completion of the Bilecik-Bursa train line, as well as the high-speed train project as requested from the first day, will be destined to the CHP government, which will take office in the first election. We look forward to that day.
