Making the opening speech of the signing ceremony, Minister Yıldırım stated that the works on Keçiören-Tandoğan Metro will start after the site delivery is made within a couple of weeks and said, “After that, our other two metro lines Kızılay-Çayyolu and Sincan lines will be activated. Their tenders have also taken place, we will sign their contracts next week. Thus, works on all 3 metro lines will be started simultaneously ”.
Expressing that the tender process for a total of 324 vehicles for metro vehicles is continuing, Yıldırım announced that bids will be received until mid-February. “If everything goes well, we aim to put these subways into service if we do not experience any emergency or force majeure,” said Yıldırım, “But you will appreciate that when working underground, some unforeseen situations may arise. Therefore, we are aware of this. That is why we will work day and night, non-stop ”.
"THE BIGGEST BUSINESS CONTRACTOR FALLS TO THE PARTNERSHIP"
Explaining that the contractor partnership for the Keçiören-Tandoğan line has a great deal of work, Yıldırım said: “Both Gülermak and Kolin are two very distinguished companies that have successfully accomplished very important commitments in Turkey and abroad. 880 days are foreseen in the contract, but we are sure that our companies will reduce this period even more. Until this time kazanBy using their experience here, they will complete this project in a shorter time. Because the people of Ankara are waiting impatiently for these projects to be completed. In this regard, Mr. Our Prime Minister has had very clear support from the very beginning.”
