carried out by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality by the contractor firm. Karşıyaka-Çiğli Tramway construction works caused a crisis in İzmir Atatürk Organized Industrial Zone (AOSB). Dirinler Casting Inc. Melih Dirin, Chairman of the Board of Directors, argued with the authorities, claiming that they could not get their trucks out of the factory due to construction. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality made a statement stating that they will use their legal rights against the company.
The explanation given is as follows;
carried out by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, by the contractor firm. Karşıyaka-Çiğli Tramway construction work continues rapidly. In the İzmir Atatürk Organized Industrial Zone (IAOSB), where the line passes, the news that a company was suffering was conveyed to the public through various channels.
Works are carried out rapidly under the coordination of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Rail Systems Department and the contractor company. This is a large-scale construction activity and naturally excavations are taking place. Communication is established with companies within the scope of the business plan; They are informed when the work will start and how long it will take. The huge sheet metal platform, built by our municipality, is placed at the factory entrances in order to avoid any victimization when entering and leaving the factories. Thus, every tonnage of vehicles can be entered and exited without any problems. Concrete was also thrown in front of the door of the factory mentioned in the news.
The representatives of the aforementioned company intervened in the construction site works illegally and illegally and caused the works to be stopped for a while. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality will use its legal rights regarding this situation, which hinders the public service.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, Karşıyaka- It has made an investment of 1,2 billion TL for the Çiğli Tramway line. One of the most important reasons for this investment is to facilitate the transportation of the employees of industrial enterprises, which we appreciate for their contribution to the economy of the city and the country. Upon completion, IAOSB businesses, university and hospital employees and residents; will have comfortable, safe and time-saving public transportation. The project of the tram line has been prepared in such a way that the line will pass through IAOSB, especially upon the request from the industrialists. In addition, the heavy traffic problem in the region, especially in the morning and evening hours, mainly caused by the service vehicles, will come to an end. The construction works of this project, which is of such importance, are carried out in a way that will least affect the daily life and functioning in the region.
The works that continue with the motto of serving the people of Izmir are planned to be completed in the first half of 2023 and the line will be put into service. We thank our fellow citizens in the region for their understanding.
