Gebze- Halkalı The suburban line will be completed in 2018: Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan, in his speech at KOTO, said, “Again from Gebze in Istanbul HalkalıWe will have completed the suburban lines to 2018, ”he said.
Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan came to Kocaeli to participate in a series of programs before the referendum. Minister Arslan's first stop was Özka Tire and Rubber Factory located in Vezir Farm Başiskele. After having lunch with the workers here, Arslan came to Kocaeli Chamber of Commerce and met with Kocaeli logistics transport and transporters. Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor İbrahim Karaosmanoğlu, İzmit Mayor Nevzat Doğan, KOTO Chairman Necmi Bulut, KOTO Assembly President Akın Doğan, KSO President Ayhan Zeytinoğlu, AKP Kocaeli Provincial Chairman Şemsettin Ceyhan, IMO Chairman Tolga Ok, Busers and Minibuses Chamber President Mustafa Kurt and many guests attended.
KOTO President Necmi Bulut made the opening speech of the program. Bulut noted the following in his speech: “The world economy is dominated by competitive cities rather than countries. Problems experienced by our members Cengiz Topel Havaalı should be made functional. Ensuring the functionality of the Gebze Adapazarı Suburban line will also speed up the traffic and operability. There are 350 thousand vehicles registered to traffic. Due to this increase, there is also air pollution, so it is important to build ring roads. "
We have obstacles
In his speech, Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor İbrahim Karaosmanoğlu said, “Kocaeli is a production and transportation city, a port city. It is also a logistics city. We have very important problems regarding this. As Metropolitan, we are working. We have plans for ports and connections, but we also have obstacles regarding implementation. Lands in Kocaeli are very precious, we have difficulties in building trucks, truck garages, parking lots, but we have to. We have no other alternative. We encourage our investors to invest. "
WE HAVE A NICE COOPERATION
Then, the name coming to the podium was Ahmet Arslan, the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications. Arslan addressed the participants of the meeting with the following words: “As the Ministry, we are aware of Kocaeli in the works we have done so far and we are making very good collaborations with the Metropolitan Municipality. When it comes to transportation and logistics, if you say how important this is for a country, whatever the circulation system is, transportation is as important for a country. It should be emphasized that shipping and logistics are also very important. The world is now in an environment where borders have disappeared in the globalizing economy, and transportation and logistics are not included in international relations. We are aware of this.
14 320 MILLION IN YEAR
In the last 14 years, we provide 320 billion Turkish Liras to the works carried out only in the field of transportation and maritime. We provide 80 percent of the traffic through divided roads. We have built 14 km of tunnels in 350 years. The amount of tunnels we will complete this year is 62 km. We want to ensure that a vehicle entering from the west of the country with Kocaeli-centered divided roads can exit from the east. As long as we serve and our people have this prayer, we will continue our unity and solidarity from now on. If the industrialist of this country grows his business, if he gives more jobs, and if we are doing the necessary, shoulder to shoulder, we will be more stakeholders in their cake.
THE MOST GROWTH IS MADE IN ISTANBUL
We continue our work in a way that can reach all our neighbors with divided motorways based in Kocaeli. In particular, there is a congestion in Kocaeli and Istanbul. In this, we laid the foundations of 1915 Çanakkale Bridge. We also made important works in the field of railways. We are currently working on the airport of 6, and the largest of these will be in Istanbul. This airport is an important work for us to reach all parts of the world. We are doing this work for all our citizens.
We'll Spend 400 MILLION
We have a very good cooperation with our Metropolitan Mayor in Kocaeli. We're making new intersections. Again from Gebze in Istanbul HalkalıWe will complete the completed suburban lines at 2018. But we aim to transport this to Ankara. We have a very nice cooperation to reach east and south of Kocaeli and some of it will be made by the Metropolitan Municipality. For all these links, we spend a million TL and we will further develop our trade. TL
