The foundation of Çamlıca-Batıkent line was laid within the scope of the existing tramway extension project.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony held in Çamlıca Mahallesi Gündüz Ökçün Street, Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Yılmaz Büyükerşen said that they are working to fulfill their promise to the public.
Büyükerşen stated that they gave back the service for the people's votes as a service, he said:
“Our job is honesty, telling the truth. We wanted votes to serve you, not to get votes by deceiving you. We work despite all the obstacles, the lies you have been told. We say 'God stands with the righteous servant' and Allah is with us, removing the obstacles we face. If they didn't, you would have been traveling by tram for 3 years. But what to do, it was late, but finally we succeeded. Our contractor promised us it will finish ahead of time. "
Tepebaşı Mayor Ahmet Ataç stated that they hope the project will be completed before 2 years and said, “Those who saw the tram on the trucks and made fun of us are ashamed of what they did today. I hope we will enjoy the tram together after our line is completed ”.
After the speeches, Büyükerşen pushed the button of the concrete mixer and put the first mortar on the foundation of the line.
