İkizdere, which will meet the sea fill stone needs of Rize İyidere Logistics Center CevizliKaraismailoğlu, stating that false rumors about the stone quarry have spread recently and a perception operation has been organized, made important statements.

Karaismailoğlu said, “Since 2003, we have spent over 17 billion 463 million lira for Rize's transportation and communication investments. While there were only 2003 kilometers of divided roads in Rize until 20, we increased it to 176 kilometers. As you know, we had previously crossed the Ovit Mountain Passage located in İkizdere-İspir location of the highway between Ovit Mountain Tunnel Rize and Erzurum. Work continues in the broken tunnel and Dallıkavak tunnels. In the coming days, we will come back to Rize to open the İkizdere and Salarha tunnels.

With the opening of our port, 3 million tons of general cargo per year, 8 million tons of bulk cargo and 100 TEU containers and 100 thousand vehicles with Ro-Ro capacity will be the lifeblood of regional trade. The impact of the Rize İyidere Logistics Port Project, with an annual capacity of 13 million tons, on the Gross Domestic Product will be 192 million dollars and its contribution to production will be more than 428 million dollars. In other words, we will have received the return of our investment many times over from the first years. "
"İkizdere CevizliLies and false rumors about the quarry are spreading and a perception operation is being carried out "
Pointing out that the Rize İyidere Logistics Port Project will provide direct employment to one thousand people and indirect employment to 34 thousand people in 8 different sectors, Minister Karaismailoğlu said that with the project, Rize will be a new logistics base opening to the Black Sea, He noted that it will make significant contributions to its volume.
Karaismailoğlu, “İkizdere where the sea fill stone needs of our İyidere Logistics Center will be met. CevizliRecently, false rumors about the quarry have been spreading and a perception operation is being carried out. In every project we do, both economic benefits, environmental gains and social contributions are calculated and weighed. The balance of all these elements is observed, and if there is a tree that is unintentionally affected after each project, hundreds of them are planted instead ”.
"Our Quarry CevizliA bird's eye view of the village k is 1800 m, and it is 2500 m from the village of Gürdere ”
Cevizlik Regarding the Quarry; Sharing clear, accurate and official information with the public, Minister Karaismailoğlu conveyed the following information:
“Our priority is to use the existing quarries for sea filling in Rize İyidere Logistics Port construction, as in all our projects. Samples were taken from 10 places, including the existing quarries, for the required seawater resistant stone reserves, and it was determined by scientific and impartial boards that the appropriate stone was here. Cevizlik An Environmental Impact Assessment Report was prepared for the Quarry and approved by the Rize Governorship. Environmental effects will be controlled continuously. "
“Open operation methods will be applied in a controlled manner in the quarry area, and no crushing-screening facility will be established in the quarry. The vibration and noise values that will occur as a result of the activities to be carried out in the quarry will remain within the limits of the laws and regulations in force. The works will never reach the dimensions that will disturb our people. Shock and noise measurements will be kept under control by laboratories and academicians authorized by the ministry. Our Quarry CevizliIt is 1800 m away from the village k and 2500 m away from the village of Gürdere. In other words, we will continue our work at a considerable distance from residential areas. "
"This quarry will be operated for only 70 years, not 2 years"
Underlining that the wastes generated during the activity will be stored and disposed in a special area, Minister Karaismailoğlu said, “Before starting the production in the quarry field, the vegetable soil will be stripped and will be preserved for use in post-production land reclamation works. Quarrying activities will be continued only in the 13,5 hectare EIA area. After the end of the stone crushing activities, the quarry area will be filled with vegetable soil, and the agricultural and vegetative productivity will remain the same. Recovery of existing natural life will be provided. This quarry will be operated for only 70 years, not 2 years. Stone will be extracted from the quarry only for the harbor ”.
Minister Karaismailoğlu, underlining that the statements about a 3-magnitude earthquake effect in the quarry works are also absolutely false and wrong, said, “There is no field in the mine working area belonging to the Treasury, certainly the fields will not be touched. The information that two licenses were issued for the quarry is absolutely wrong. There is only one work with a single license. Statements that 100 thousand trees will be cut down are completely unrealistic. The technical team of the General Directorate of Mining Affairs, who came back to Rize, re-investigated whether there was an alternative quarry in the region and recorded that there was no other suitable quarry. In other words, we can only meet the stone quality needed for our construction of İyidere Logistics Port, which will enrich Rize in the next decades, only from this point ”.
"We planted 19 billion saplings with the soil in the last 5,3 years"
CevizliMinister Karaismailoğlu stated that after the completion of the activities in the Stone Quarry, they will plant ten trees instead of a damaged tree, and that they have brought together 19 billion saplings in the last 5,3 years during their governments.
Karaismailoğlu continued as follows: “Our Ministry has eliminated carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to more than 2 million 500 thousand trees annually, thanks to the highways investments alone. In 2020 alone, we saved 1 billion 324 million dollars in time, 546 million dollars in fuel and 11 million dollars in environmental costs. "
“With the Rize İyidere Logistics Port, which we will complete in 2023, we will make Rize a logistics base. Those who opposed the 3rd bridge, Istanbul Airport and City Hospitals yesterday are trying to deceive our brothers from Rize İkizdereli with their lies today. Both our Esteemed President and we are the children of Rize and Trabzon. We are in love of this blue, this green, this earth. These provocations will be repelled with the foresight and foresight of our esteemed brothers. "
