In our city, which has a smooth ground and does not have any problems in terms of infrastructure, if our project is realized, our people will be able to travel more comfortably and quickly with a wide network that can reach every point in 1800-1900 elevations of the Van sea.

Even if the state wishes, this project can be made to domestic companies through the make-operate-transfer method, and if this method is followed, the project can be implemented without leaving five cents in the state's safe. ”
