Airport, Railway and Yenisehir: With simple solutions, we can wake up sleeping giants with some small investments and mobilize idle investments. With small investments, we can improve the development levels of our economically backward regions.
There is such an opportunity in our city. Our airport in the city, where planes of 70-80 people can land, was suddenly inadequate. When we built an international airport, the Bursa economy would fly. Dozens of aircraft that will land at the airport will bring hundreds and thousands of businessmen, tourists will come to Bursa like rain; dollar and euro would fly in the air. It was possible to go to the airport in Istanbul in 2-2.5 hours, there were idle airports in the cities around us - Sabiha Gökçen airport was thrown at that time - there was no international airport under the same climatic conditions, there were not enough passengers to fly from Bursa to Ankara or Istanbul. he did not listen to objections. The place was also ready, unused parts of the Yenişehir military airport. The airport was built with the wind of the airport building lobby. As soon as it was made, all magic was broken. The airport, which was opened with great hopes, did not work whatever was done. Turkish Airlines lifted flights from corruption. A few "charter" flights did not save our airport with great hopes. The airport building lobby also disappeared after getting what it wanted. We now have an idle airport of $ 500-600 million. Projects proposed to revive and the studies did not result.
In my opinion, there is a huge economic opportunity for a sleeping giant. My proposal is to make Yenisehir Airport the cargo center of our country. The only thing to do is to connect the airport to the railway system with a line starting from Mekecek train station in Bilecik. To reach the other end of this line from Gemlik to Gemlik free zone via Iznik. 5 in terms of population of our country. Bursa, which has a big city, comes after Istanbul and Kocaeli provinces in terms of industrial production. Our province has ten Organized Industrial Zone including İnegöl. It is a logically unacceptable phenomenon that these regions remain outside the rail network. Consider what will happen when this line, which can be considered as the beginning of the Mekecek-Bursa-Bandırma line, will create an economic revival.
- Yenişehir and İznik districts, which have been migrating for many years, will be revived economically and culturally.
-Yenehir airport will be the air cargo center of our country.
- From this center to Istanbul-Kocaeli-Central Anatolia and Bursa's industrial zones all kinds of air cargo will come and all kinds of cargo can be sent.
- There are free zones and 5 ports in Gemlik. Became an important logistics center of our country
The only thing to do is to connect the railway to Gemlik port via Yenişehir, İznik with a small investment according to the highway, to activate the Yenişehir airport and thus to provide employment to thousands of people.
