Ankara Metro Agains Crisis
The discussion about the tender to produce wagons for the Ankara subway does not end. The court decision concerning the Chinese CSR Electric Locomotive Company, which undertakes the job after many complaints and objections, may raise the cancellation of the tender. The wagons to be purchased for the Ankara subway are on the agenda ros
After the tender, it was claimed that the Chinese company did not even provide documents on the safety of wagons to the tender commission. Y Auxiliar De Ferrocarriles SA, based in Spain, participated in the tender.
When the company did not present the documents related to the safety of the wagons, the relevant companies brought the issue to the judiciary. The Ankara Regional Administrative Court, which has justified the objections, took the 'decision to stop the execution' regarding the tender won by the Chinese company CSR Electric and asked for the 'procurement' from the Public Procurement Board. Following the decision of the court, the Public Procurement Board, which had previously decided to 'continue the procurement', is expected to cancel the tender.
