In his speech at the opening of the conference, Governor İpek stated that Bayburt is located on the historical Silk Road and said, “Thank God the Kop Mountain is being drilled. The opening of the Black Sea to the whole Middle East and Iran is from Bayburt. We are drilling the Soğanlı Mountains again. "We will reach Araklı with the Salmankaş Tunnel in 80 kilometers."
Stating that the works of another tunnel that will reach Çaykara-Of and Uzungöl were carried out by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Governor İpek said, “Apart from this, our Minister of Transport has promised that we will make a joint airport with Gümüşhane during his visit to Bayburt and groundbreaking ceremonies. If it will reach the Black Sea, East, Middle East and Iran today, it has to pass through Bayburt ”.
Participating as a speaker in Bayburt's Centennial Imaginary Silk Railway conference, Karadeniz Technical University (KTU) Transportation Department Head Prof. Dr. Fazıl Çelik stated that there were three leaders in history who showed the will to build a railway and said, "These leaders are the Second Abdulhamit Han, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and when we come to the 2000s, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan with the high-speed train move."
Noting that Bayburt is the Centenary Imaginary Silk Railway, Çelik said:
“This is an expectation of 140 years. Bayburt has been waiting for a railway since the Ottoman Empire for 140 years. There is Bayburt in Ottoman projects and Bayburt in Atatürk's projects. Bayburt is seen as the most accurate and economical route among the many alternatives that KTÜ has run and researched for the last 5-6 years. Only DLH does not have Bayburt in its projects. Bayburt's 140-year dream cannot and will not be disappointed, I have full faith in it. As long as it takes care of the Bayburt project. Let it be believed that this project is the most accurate, economical and best evaluated by the country's interests. "
After the conference, Rector Budak presented Çelik a copper plate as a gift.
