This escalator and cable car we build are environmentally friendly as they run on clean energy. Its operating cost is low. In our period, I hope Zonguldak will be referred to as the 'city with escalator', not the 'city with stairs'. This is nothing fancy or luxurious. Something that should have happened to me. I hope we will make it happen. " Stating that he is a project designer due to his profession, Köktürk said, “I do not say 'I do' something that I cannot do. We do what we started ahead of time.

If God gives me life for 5 years, I will do it properly. If I cannot do what I have said, the public will say to me, 'Nothing will happen from you, goodbye'. I speak concrete, realist, real. I present these to my people and realize my projects. "I've always done this in my professional life," he said.
