Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Kadir Topbaş, about the maintenance work on Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, which will also be carried out on the First Bridge, said, “My brides were to maintain the bridges after the Marmaray was opened. I told the Undersecretary, ”he said. Topbaş told Çamlıca that the mosque project is "like Kanal Istanbul" and it is the project of Prime Minister Erdoğan.
Maintenance obligation on bridges
Speaking about the traffic problems caused by the ongoing maintenance work on the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Kadir Topbaş said that they were following the traffic problems with great attention. Stating that they had invested 8 billion TL in Istanbul during the 54-and-a-half mayor period, Topbaş said, “Although they have a window, they should look at the situation of Istanbul before we arrive. Of course, we are not saying it is sufficient. Our Minister of Transport made a statement, 'What is this! The First Bridge will last longer, 'he said. This is of course a technical issue. If an accident happened the next day tomorrow, nobody can handle it. This imperative will be made inevitably. If we take it to the winter months, schools open traffic is worse and not suitable for asphalt. He was preferred this month because of the effects of wind, cold and winter months. ”
If Marmaray had been built after
Explaining a proposal to the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport in terms of the timing of the renovation of the bridges Topbaş, said:
“My heart was that the maintenance of the bridges was after Marmaray opened. I also told the undersecretary. I don't know if I can wait, whether this risk is taken. If this was the case, there would be a relief in transportation and traffic. Because Marmaray is a line capable of carrying 150 thousand passengers per hour. I also suggested, 'If we went with narrower lanes'; It was said, 'Then it becomes patched, and the problems grow with the water coming from the joints of this material. We are silent then, we cannot say anything. We do not know how many months the First Bridge will be closed, how many lanes will be closed. We did not receive such a briefing. They will inform us in any case. ”
Saying that similar problems are also experienced in the western capitals, Topbaş said that Istanbul is the subway, as opposed to these cities.
