Marmaray half Istanbul was left without trimming: 2 was dismantled only the old rails in the year. Even when the rails were removed, a new vegetation was formed on the land. The area where the retaining walls begin to collapse creates a bad image in the neighborhoods where the line passes.
In order to ease the transportation problem of Istanbul, the 2004-long Marmaray railway line, projected in 76, was left half-way.
29 2013 13 63 XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX The project, which was expected to be completed in June, was slowed down with the reason of increasing cost.
The continuation of the project Halkalı- The suburban lines between Kazlıçeşme and Gebze-Söğütlüçeşme were modernized and upgraded to the subway standard. Although the 2 has announced that the Marmaray line will be fully ready during the year, the old suburban lines have not been modernized during the 28 month.
For more than a decade, the OHL company, which only dismantled existing lines and demolished the stations, stopped the work by showing a cost increase last year. It was claimed that the company was given additional time to the company during the negotiations with the Ministry of Transportation and that the company guaranteed to complete the project until the end of 2.
The rails were ruined!
Within the scope of the project, the contractor firm 28 started working months ago, Halkalı-Kazlıçeşme and Gebze-Sogutlucesme between all the railways and by removing the existing stations began to destroy. Just in time Halkalı Construction work was carried out between Train Station and Gebze Pendik. In the remaining regions, no construction work was carried out. The current state of the old 150 thousand people in the old way with the current image resembles a ruin.
Intercity train services cannot be made
Intercity train services cannot be carried out due to the lack of completion of the project. There are no trains coming to Istanbul from Ankara-Eskişehir. The old line to be modernized is planned to have an 3 train line and one of the lines will be used for freight and intercity passenger transport. Sirkeci and Haydarpasa railway stations, which are identified with Istanbul and have a historical structure, are devastated. While Sirkeci station becomes the parking lot of Marmaray trains, Haydarpasa is like a large train cemetery where old trains are kept waiting.
