Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) opened the "Kavakpınar Underpass", which connects the Kavakpınar and Orhangazi Neighborhoods of Pendik and will relieve the traffic congestion experienced in the region for years, within the scope of the "150 Projects in 150 Days" marathon. IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlumade investigations on the Kavakpınar Underpass, which was opened to traffic recently. Imamoglu, who received information about the before and after of the project from Recep Korkut, Head of the Department of Science Affairs of IMM, also made his evaluations in the region. Noting that the underpass and connection roads put into service, the Pendik D100 Highway and TEM connection and the traffic congestion between Kavakpınar-Orhangazi neighborhoods have been eliminated to a great extent for years, İmamoğlu said, "We know that our citizens have been expressing the demand for this transition for many years."
“SERIOUS DIFFICULTIES WAS THE ISSUE”
Emphasizing that it is a problematic area in terms of financial and tender processes, İmamoğlu said, “The more critical issue is that there was a crossing project and its continuation road project, but there were also serious problems regarding the expropriation on the road. In other words, the obstacles on the route to be built were not removed. By addressing all these issues, we have brought a really valuable gateway to this region, with a new tender process and a strong manufacturing construction without expropriation. It concerns hundreds of thousands of people, together with its close region. But at the same time, its effect on the D100 has a function to slow down the traffic jam experienced there. It's a nice job. This production was completed with an investment of approximately 350 million liras. Expressing that the expropriation process was also carried out in agreement with the citizens, İmamoğlu said, “Our friends, our expropriation units, managed the process without breaking their hearts. It is an exemplary business in every aspect. It is a very beneficial job for Pendik in all aspects. It is a very beneficial job for the people of this region in all aspects," he said.
“Sometimes there are such touches…”
Reminding that he first came to the region during the election campaign, İmamoğlu said:
“Both because of the corporate structure of a bank here and the shopping malls in the vicinity, I can say that hundreds of minibuses are clogged, cars do not pass, sometimes people waiting in the car for half an hour or an hour… We heard about this problem at that time. Today, approximately 1 years after listening to that problem, I am enjoying presenting it to our people as a solution. Sometimes there are such touches that they do not have a budget of billions of liras, but they really have the ability to remove years of suffering in the memory of people. The work we do here will be very good for the people of Pendik. It will be especially good for our Orhangazi and Kavakpınar Neighborhoods. Good luck to our fellow citizens. I would like to thank everyone who contributed, from my political colleagues who warned us, to my technical friends who brought this place to life today, and to our contractor company.”
