PRESIDENT UYSAL: TRANSPORTATION CIVILIZATION AND CULTURE
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Mevlut Uysal said that transportation means a civilization and culture. U Istanbul is actually a transportation bridge. Istanbul is the name of Asia and Europe. The course is also a cultural bridge. In that sense, transportation is becoming more important for Istanbul. O
Uysal said that transportation in the past was important in terms of security in the world. Et But now transportation means civilization and culture. If you don't have transportation, there is perhaps nothing in a city. Istanbul is actually a transport bridge. Istanbul is the name of Asia and Europe. The course is also a cultural bridge. In that sense, transportation is becoming more important for Istanbul. O
“If we say that we will be a bridge between continents and cultures, we have to make transportation in Istanbul the most important issue. As Metropolitan, we are currently allocating more than 50 percent of our budget to transportation. ”Uysal said that transportation is the primary priority of IMM. Stating that the government also prioritizes transportation in Istanbul, Uysal said:
Var The Ministry of Transport has a very important contribution in the transportation of Istanbul to both the third bridge and the Marmaray projects. Problems in transportation are solved when the academy, private sector, local governments and government come together. If these four groups come together, they can accomplish very important things. Of course, these four groups have to be integrated into one another. Sea, air, road, rail, rail system transportation, so all of this comes together. If we can solve this, then we will do something important in cities. Bunu
Underlining that the subject they attach great importance to as the IMM is the metro investments, Uysal continued his words as follows; “The metro network, which was 45 kilometers in the past and now exceeds 150 kilometers, will reach 300 kilometers in the coming years, will solve a significant problem if it reaches a thousand kilometers in Istanbul. But just getting the subway to a thousand kilometers will not mean anything alone. If we have integrated this with road, sea, and even people's walking and cycling routes, it will mean a lot. Stakeholders who are now gathering at such meetings and conferences will discuss this. Also, while discussing these transportation issues, if the technology is added to integration studies, the solution becomes easier. If these issues are left incomplete, no solution is found again. ”
Uysal stated that the works made in Istanbul, which is a bridge between the two continents, will serve as an example to the world. Ist I believe that the Transist Congress and Fair, which will last for two days, will contribute to the solution of this problem in our country and in the world. It is really our job to offer a contribution to the name of civilization and culture, even if the railway, metro, rail system. If we succeed in these, I think we will leave an important legacy for future generations. Eğer
