We have called for the metropolitan municipalities in Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir regarding the metro projects that the metropolitan municipalities could not complete. We have stated that they can transfer these projects to our Ministry. Ankara Metropolitan Municipality 3 wanted to transfer the line in half. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality wanted to transfer one half line. 2 demanded that our new line be made by our Ministry. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoglu, 'I'm going to do it myself,' he said. 3 asked us to take over the new metro line. We agreed with him in principle. The implementation projects of these lines are made by the Metropolitan Municipality. We'il take them.
EXECUTION INCREASE REQUEST
It is meaningless to discuss the construction of subway constructions in less cost. You don't know what you're gonna see underneath the ground. Costs vary according to land conditions and geological surveys. Then there are the subways that go from the surface. It's not exactly a subway in Izmir. Some of it goes from the surface, some of it under the ground. Istanbul Kartal Metro is a subway. In fact, there are no big differences between the cost of metro projects in the big city of 3. I would also like to remind you that we are talking about the cost of unfinished projects. There is a demand for a discovery increase related to the project, which has been going on since the 2004 of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and replaced by 3 contractor. We discussed this with the Minister of the Interior, we will approve it.
