Denial of Ankara Suburbs Closed Allegations Due to the Başkentray Project: In the written statement made by TCDD regarding the allegations that 'Ankara suburbs were closed due to the Başkentray project', “The reason for the closure of suburban lines and the suspension of suburban flights is not the canceled Başkentray tender. The allegations that the closure of the line was due to the canceled tender and that it cost citizens 2 years is unrealistic.
by the Republic of Turkey General Directorate of State Railways Administration, located in media outlets in recent days 'closure of Ankara suburb, and the reopening of BAŞKENTRAY project' was written explanation of the relevant notice. In the news content, it was emphasized that Ankara suburbs were closed due to the Başkentray project and that the citizen was victimized for 2 years with the cancellation of the Başkentray tender, and said, “The reason for the closure of suburban lines and the suspension of suburban flights is not the canceled Başkentray tender. The Ankara-Behiçbey section built by TCDD was the new double line and the Ankara-Sincan North line and the 6 under and overpasses built in cooperation with the TCDD-Metropolitan Municipality were closed to suburban traffic and reopened after the completion of these works. It is not possible to work in suburban areas while these works are done ”.
In the statement that TCDD closed the suburban lines not arbitrarily or for the work that did not start, but for the works that were previously tendered and started, “The claims that the closure of the line was due to the canceled tender and that it cost citizens 2 years is unrealistic. The statements of some very knowledgeable people to 'who will account for this' by referring to the closed period are due to not knowing the subject ”.
