The project was planned to be constructed by Ankara Metropolitan Municipality with Build-Operate-Transfer model and the companies demanded passenger guarantee in the 3 monorail project.
Ankara Metropolitan Municipality has started work to monorail Çankaya's Dikmen region, especially Bilkent and Etlik City Hospital, which will be opened soon. The Metropolitan Municipality, which received the offers of domestic and foreign companies within the scope of the projects carried out by the General Directorate of EGO, asked for a passenger guarantee in the monorail that it will implement with the Build-Operate-Transfer model. Metropolitan Municipality, which wants to keep the operating time longer instead of the passenger guarantee, started to wait for new offers.
“LET US TAKE THE LONG TIME”
Speaking to Ankara in the morning, Mayor of Ankara Metropolitan Municipality Melih Gökçek stated that the only problem in the monorail project is that the companies want the passenger guarantee they want. Mayor Gökçek said, “We are looking for many customers for monorail projects. But all without exception, all want a passenger guarantee. If there is any problem, this will put a burden on the municipality regarding the passenger. We say that you will ask for a passenger guarantee to keep your time long. This is why the monorail project in Ankara has been interrupted for now… When we overcome the passenger guarantee problem, there will be no obstacle in front of the project. ”
3 ZONE IN THE FIRST STAGE
The monorail project is planned to be built in 3 different regions in the capital Ankara in the first place. Mayor Melih Gökçek said, “The first of the planned regions is Dikmen Valley… The other two are the city hospitals region in Etlik and Bilkent… These are our priority regions”. Monorail wagons, which are one of the types of rail transportation in the city, operate on a single rail by moving in the direction of arrival or departure.
