Detailed examination reports and suggestions of our professional chambers in accordance with the information they obtained with limited facilities were communicated to İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, which is carrying out the project, and it was requested to revise the project by taking into consideration the suggestions offered.
On the other hand, although there is no information sharing with the relevant circles from the beginning of the tram project to the development process, the persistent attitude is maintained in the absence of a participatory approach. It is necessary to adopt the reality of the fact that the projects related to public transportation systems of the public, such as the tramway, cannot reach successful results by sharing the results of the surveys made with the city dwellers who are living on the route or by showing the fancy visuals produced in the computer environment. We hope that those who manage the city will share these and similar projects with the city population, who will benefit from the project, as well as the relevant professional organizations and specialized organizations.
