Expressing that they are examining the tram projects once again, they are thinking about taking the project to Mithatpaşa Street sometime in Konak tram. “Friends worked on the project. However, we saw that there are intense vertical transitions between Hatay and the coast on Mithatpaşa Street. For this reason, we saw that the tram could not run on the street. We prepared a new line on Sahil Boulevard due to the sensitivity to the green area in the first project. Without touching the collector of the Underground Canal, the tram line will be built as the fourth lane without breaking the existing three-lane road on the Beach Boulevard. We will play in the middle median, sides, sidewalks. The tram line will be the far right on arrival and departure. Our determination works are about to be completed. After the feast we will tell the public why we did not do it in the green area. The construction of the tram will accelerate with this process. ” The Konak tram will be 13 kilometers long and consist of 19 stops. He will work between Üçkuyular- Mustafa Kemal Sahil Boulevard, Konak-Şehit Fethi Bey Caddesi, Şehit Nevres Boulevard- Montreux Square-Poet Eşref Boulevard-Alsancak Gar-Şehitler Caddesi- Halkapınar.
