The Üçyol-Üçkuyular metro line does not progress even at the speed of a turtle: Lütfü Elvan, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, continued his criticism by shooting Binali Yıldırım's rival, İzmir Metropolitan Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu, from the subway that he could not finish.
“We set out together to open the blocked roads of İzmir, regain the lost values in 10 years and make İzmir a brand city again. We work confidently on this path. This image is not the image that İzmir deserves. This is not the fate of İzmir. If this is the case, it is the responsibility of the local administrators who left Izmir back. "There's no Yuh." They will also benefit from our service. This intersection, which cost 95 million liras, will connect the coast of İzmir and Yeşildere Avenue with the end of the tunnels. The subway could not be completed in 10 years in İzmir. They couldn't do the 3.5 kilometers metro in 10 years. Now they say that it will build 300 kilometers of metro. Who believes? You laugh crunchily, right? They always promise like this, and then they forget their promises. Today is again the promised day. Abundant throw-out day. They promised that they would bear the sun in one hand and the other in the past. They said they would give the diesel one pound, and they would pay everyone, but the folks did not bleed. Because their record is bad. Izmirli no longer believes that they are telling the truth because they have not done anything they said in the past. Don't worry, Izmir is worthy of being the pearl of the Mediterranean. Are we determined to make İzmir a brand city with Hayat İzmir 1 project? We have completed our preparations for this. Izmir is not deemed worthy of this situation, this is not the fate of İzmir. Are you ready to bring Izmir to glorious days? Good luck to you. ”
'METRO IS NOT PROVIDING EVEN AT THE TURTLET SPEED'
Transport and Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Lütfü Elvan stated that Konak Tunnels will be opened at the end of 2014, and the name of Yeşildere Junction will be “Mustafa Kemal Atatürk Junction” upon request. Elvan gave information about his ministry's ongoing projects in the city and said:
“When the foundation of the Konak Tunnels, which is called the crazy project of İzmir, was laid, there were those who said that this project could not be more than a dream. The 2005-kilometer-long Üçyol-Üçkuyular metro line, the construction of which started in 5.5, cannot even progress with the turtle speed. We are starting a new era with Konak- Yeşildere Tunnel and Yeşildere Köprülü Intersection. It was realized in a way to ensure all traffic circulation on İzmir-Aydın State Road. Tunnel excavation works of 674 meters in the right tube of the 986-meter tunnel of the mansion and 913 meters in the left-hand tube were completed. We aim to complete the tunnel by the end of 909. The Izmir-Istanbul Highway Project continues rapidly. Thanks to the Gulf crossing, 2014-8 hours transportation time between Istanbul and Izmir will decrease to 10 hours. Our work continues without slowing down. The Sabuncubeli Tunnel reached 3.5 meters in the right tube and 761 meters in the left tube. We are completing the implementation project of Izmir Bay Crossing in 731. The Gulf crossing was planned as a highway and rail system. We will complete the implementation projects of the Izmir-Ankara road within this year.
