Evaluating the demands of the citizens, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality will build a new station between Şirinyer and Kemer stations. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer emphasized that this work is the result of a participatory management approach that aims to respond quickly to the demands of the neighborhoods by listening to their problems.
A new station is being added to the 136-kilometer İZBAN line, which was brought to the city with the cooperation of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality and TCDD. Taking action upon the demands of the citizens, the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality will build a new station between Şirinyer and Kemer stations. İZBAN's 42nd station will ease the transportation of citizens living in Lale and Adatepe neighborhoods. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality will go out to tender for Lale Mahallesi İZBAN Station on September 27. The manufacturing works, which will start after the completion of the tender process, will be completed in 1,5 years. Within the scope of manufacturing works, rough construction, finishing works, mechanical and electrical productions and landscaping of 1 above-ground İZBAN train station, which will be integrated into İZBAN, will be carried out.
“The result of our participatory management approach”
İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer emphasized that this work is the result of a participatory management approach that aims to listen to the problems of the neighborhoods and meet their demands quickly, and said, “Our headmen and neighborhood residents mainly expressed this demand during the meetings we held in this region within the scope of the work of the emergency solution teams. We took action to do what was necessary. İZBAN trains will also stop in Lale Mahallesi as soon as possible. Our citizens will be connected to the rail system network more easily and directly. Good luck right now," he said.
