Prepared to breathe in urban traffic Karşıyaka- Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, which continues the works of workshop-support building constructions and vehicles of Konak tram projects, has started rail laying works in the sections of the route, where the infrastructure displacements are over. The first rail laying on Cahar Dudayev Boulevard was performed with a ceremony attended by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu.
Reminding that they opened 400 million Fair İzmir last month, Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu said, “Today we are again laying the foundation of a 400 million project. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is currently running a 80-kilometer project as a rail system investment only. 30 km bagged line, 26 km Selçuk line, 24 km Karşıyaka and a total of 80 kilometers with Konak tram. 100 kilometers is working now, it will be 180 ”.
Speaking about the tram of Buca, Mayor Kocaoğlu said, “We are participating in the project tender, Karşıyaka- Konak and Buca went out together. Then the Ministry of Transport said to us, "We will do it" on the 1650-meter lines of the Buca tram, and we removed Buca from the project tender. I wish we didn't take it off because they don't. If we continued, we would lay the foundations of the tram in Buca and finish it in 3 years. We made a mistake. I apologize to Bucans. We want to get out of the project tender as soon as possible and lay the foundation of the Buca tram as soon as possible. ”
Emphasizing that the statues planned to be held in İzmir are made of political material, Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu briefly said:
“Sport, belief, sub-identity, nursing relations, sectarian differences should not be used in politics. Culture and arts should be done freely and not be a tool for politics. But unfortunately a Karşıyaka and Göztepe stadium did not go further than just disturbing İzmir's occupation and occupying its agenda. We made our calculations with Faruk Bey, Minister of the Period. The place is certain, the place has been allocated. We said that the project will be made and we will do it with the ministry. It's that simple. That's right. We all decided together. We were going to build 80 acres of sports complex. Location discussions took place. Our Izmir nationals do not want to be imposed, we do not want to be imposed. We want to manage our city by discussing, agreeing, agreeing and reconciling our issues with a participatory democracy and management approach. 'Karşıyaka Mayor, Metropolitan does not allow, we can not do. 'I declare here again. Today, we are against the making of stats because there is no right choice of place; We express this openly everywhere. Our justifications are also correct in terms of urbanism. It is principal, it must defend. This is separate… But today there is no legal obstacle for the Ministry of Sports to lay the foundations for these statutes in terms of legislation. 'No, the Metropolitan will give the land of 1400 square meters, Karşıyaka Let the municipality give its land in the mansion free of charge, and the words have turned into the story of `` I do not intend to play, I can not play, my place is narrow-yenim narrow ''. We have 4 thousand 239 square meters of space in Alsancak Stadium, so far we have not said 'give us'. ”
Metropolitan Municipality, finished the words related to the stat:
You will understand the people of Izmir
“You will serve İzmir, you will understand İzmirli. You will respect the life style of İzmirli. You will not fight with İzmirli. You won't say, 'I'll serve you if you vote for me.' You will do your duty, you will do your job. If you want to vote for Izmir, but you will not if you want to Izmirliyan, you are obliged to serve Turkey's most developed cities; this is your primary duty. As İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, we continue on our way to solve all the infrastructure problems of the city and enlarge them economically ”.

Just like the ruling party said 'we will do' last week and put Izmir's tram projects in election declarations. We wish and we want them to continue following us. We want them to build a 8-500 thousand-person vision stadium, instead of constructing a boutique stadium for 10-25 people. ”
