Yildirim, at the end of this year, both Marmaray and Istanbul-Ankara-Kocaeli YHT line will be opened by voicing, for this, the relevant colleagues, contractors and all managers on the route of the line gave them the necessary contribution and support, he said.
Pointing out that the line will be a high-standard railway line with an average speed of 200-250 kilometers, the highest security level and mobile phones can operate while on the move, Yıldırım said, 'The distance between Istanbul and Ankara will be completed in 3 hours. With the completion of this line, the share of passenger transportation between Ankara and Istanbul will increase from 10 percent to 78 percent. Most of the cargo on the Kocaeli-Izmit route will have shifted to the railroad, especially in passenger transportation. Things are going as planned on the 56-kilometer Gebze-Köseköy line. There are some minor issues, but these don't seem to significantly disrupt the schedule. We sometimes experience difficulties in some parts of the third line. We produce solutions in coordination with relevant institutions. '
The allegation that the line passed through TJK's Training Center
Questions of journalists answered the Lightning, previously Köseköy of YHT line of Turkey reminded of a story for that passes through the exercise center of the Jockey Club, 'I have no information, if coming on line there is nothing to do there, any facility is not we do not remove it unnecessarily. Maybe we'll do it if it needs temporary use. Our aim is to finish this railway line. '
Yıldırım, when Kocaeli Governor Ercan Topaca, who intervened at this time, said, 'We asked the subject, there is no such thing, the line is passing behind the center', 'The Governor corrected it, there was no such thing, at a point far from the line he spoke.
Quarry planned to be built in Maşukiye
Minister Yildirim, Maşukiye quarry planned to be done on the location of Yanıkköy on a question, he said:
'It will be used in case of need. Environmental awareness is our priority as well as all our citizens living in Kocaeli, but remember that there are 7-8 quarries in this region. All of these belong to private individuals. It is not correct to evaluate sensitivity differently as private or public. There is no problem when someone from the private sector takes over and runs a quarry. When this is done by the public, it is not understandable to try to create an unfavorable public opinion. Moreover, we will not use it unless we have to. We could not wait because this process was prolonged, because if we waited, the project would change. We produced different solutions for him. Permission procedure is completed, we will use it whenever the need arises. '
Yildirim, Sapanca on the road to be completed when the question of the Kocaeli public opinion about the interest in Sapanca by explaining closely, said that the project is not on the agenda of the ministries.
Emphasizing that at the end of the year 2010, the governor and the municipality demanded that this road be expanded and turned into a divided road according to the increasing need, Yıldırım said.
'We have taken this road into our network, our municipality has made a great sacrifice by undertaking the expropriation. That line is a line that has dense housing and needs a lot of expropriation. A CHP deputy friend made an unjust accusation that "you could not finish here for 10 years". The line came to the agenda at the end of 2010, starting work in 2011. We said 'we will end at the end of 2012'. Why isn't it over? There are many companies, including Tüpraş, on the pipeline. There are electricity lines, crossings belonging to the municipalities. It took us 9 months to deal with all of these and get their permissions. If we had waited for the institutions to handle it themselves, we would have waited another 5-10 years. We took care of them jointly, we do not have any problems at the moment. We gave the contractor firm a deadline until the end of August, if not, we will do what is necessary. '
Our process is to finish the YHT line as soon as possible
Yildirim, a journalist asked his views on the solution process, said:
'Our process is to finish the High Speed Train line as soon as possible. Other jobs are not currently fulfilling the needs of citizens. Our Prime Minister made the necessary explanations in this regard, our citizens want peace all over our country. Ferah wants the welfare work to continue without slowing down and development efforts without slowing down. That's why it is our common goal to save from the scourge of terror. In doing so, we will not compromise our common values. The national unity that holds us together is our solidarity. We will also preserve our brotherhood.
