A serious need
Reminding that the longest distance between stations in the rail system line is in this region, Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Alinur Aktaş said, “A tender was held by Burulaş in 2015 to build a station that will meet the needs of the new stadium, hotels, shopping malls, cafeterias and recreational areas. However, the process had stopped for different reasons. Last July, we restarted the process and made significant progress. Hopefully, we will finish this station in a short time and meet the needs of the shopping centers, hotels, stadiums and recreational areas in the region ”.
