WE ARE BEHIND THE WORK WE DO
Giving examples of projects made with the Build-Operate-Transfer model, such as the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge and the Eurasia Tunnel, the Minister of Transport, Karaismailoğlu, also responded to the criticisms made about this model:
“We stand behind our work and will continue to do so. Public-Private partnership projects are all open projects. All domestic and foreign companies that are capable of doing this work can enter the tender. Some say; 'contracts confidential'. Can the contract of a tender in which 24 companies have files be confidential? It is also a word that is said afakki. Since there is more than one proposal for these projects, the most suitable proposal is preferred in a competition and in terms of the public. That's why it is said that 'this is a high investment cost'. There was a competition here. These are all tenders made in line with the authorizations granted by the Tender Law. He says why do we pay for the road we did not pass. Shouldn't we have built an airport in Adıyaman, then, just because you don't use Adıyaman Airport? We have 57 airports. Of course, it is not possible for 84 million people to use them. They are trying to smear such technical issues with the politics of gossip.”
