İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu, after hearing the problems of the sector representatives and artisans, visited the Bayrampaşa Bus Station, one of the bleeding wounds of the city, with the Mayor of the district Atila Aydın. İmamoğlu witnessed the negative views especially on the lower floors and said, ım I am disturbed. My child does not enter such a place, my wife does not. How can 16 million children of Istanbul, his wife enter here? My child or someone else's wife, nobody's family. There's peace in here. This place has lost its function. ” Imamoglu, journalists, how long it will take to transform the bus station into a technocenter, “Well I am a very lively thesis. Obviously I don't want to give time. You're asking for the third time, let me tell you. I have instructed my friends to finish 2 within the year ”.
Ekrem İmamoğlu, Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (İBB), together with Mayor of Bayrampaşa Atila Aydın, made inspections in Bayrampaşa Bus Station whose parking services were transferred to İSPARK A.Ş. Imamoglu, parking management building was welcomed with a protocol at the gate. Imamoglu showed great interest to tradesmen and citizens, barely able to enter the administration building. Receiving information from sector representatives and listening to their problems and solutions, İmamoğlu started his speech by saying “Esenler Bus Station renkli and there were colorful moments. Imamoğlu embraced the Mayor of Bayrampaşa, Aydın, because of his mistake. “Even though he stayed within the borders of Bayrampaşa, he stayed in the minds as Esenler Bus Station arı.
“WE ARE REPRESENTING THE PUBLIC”
Stating that the bus station has been serving Istanbul for years, İmamoğlu said, uyla With the establishment based on 1980 years, representatives of the sector made a protocol and served the city under the conditions of that day. Of course, cities are growing and developing. Under the conditions of that day, some services outside the city can remain in the very heart of the city today. It may need function change. Today, we came to visit Bayrampaşa Bus Station, to listen to the problems and to shake hands of the artisans in the surrounding area and to determine the conditions. But let's just say this. There is an existing problem. This is the end of the contract here in May. In fact, 18 would close its contract in May, as it approached its last days in our previous daily term. Our term of office, 6, ended somehow in May. When we came back to the task, we looked at the official process of the Bayrampaşa Bus Station. We represent the public. We had to make an urgent transaction and in accordance with this contract, we handed over to İSPARK AŞ, an affiliate of İBB, to manage the parking lot operation of our bus station. The decision was taken unanimously in the IMM Assembly. Then, I asked our General Secretary Yavuz Erkut to invite the sector representatives and to share our thoughts about the process with the authorities of the sector. This is all the planning last week. As of yesterday, sector representatives met with our Secretary General and shared their views. We came here today..
“Election is over, we will take care of our business”
“In the macro-planning of Istanbul, the common idea of the previous administration of the IMM, including us and even our rival candidates, is to place both the Bayrampaşa and Harem bus stations in a mechanism that dominates the main transportation axes and of course with rail systems. Am Imamoglu said that he did not think anybody different about it. İmamoğlu said: “Of course, another aspect is that these main bus stations are supported by mobile bus stations in the city. This is our main principle. In our candidacy for walking on this principle, again, my sector representatives and expert colleagues made interviews and meetings. We found that this idea base does not seem to have a huge problem. From the physical conditions of the bus station to the holdings, until we reach some security-related problems, we also know that there are problems from past to present due to a number of commercial contracts. These are not directly related to us. It could be related. But we promised that we would not be a government that said, 'That problem, this problem is not our concern'. As of today, the election is over, and we'il be on our way. We're fixing here today. Election and party are over
we will take care of our business. ”
IZ WE HAVE HELD THE PROCESS ”
Am We will surely have a common table with the actors in Bayrampaşa Bus Station, İm İmamoğlu said. “We will produce the future between Istanbul and Istanbul together. We're very clear about that. No one should hesitate. However, during this time, we have to solve the problems while discussing and planning the project design, financing and when to implement it. First of all, we have to eliminate the security problem and environmental damage. We have to eliminate certain conditions that harm people and make them uneasy. This is the first. We have now taken over the process. IMM has taken the process through İSPARK. Let's make it public. If there are other issues that concern the same safety, we talked to our Governor. We will work in coordination with other public institutions in order to prevent other kinds of issues here. ”
“WE WILL CONVERT TO THE CAR PARK, TEKNOKENT”
Speaking about the future of the bus station, İmamoğlu said, önce I stated that because there was a definition containing a few adjectives before. I said, 'We will bring this beautiful bus station to mind and science.' What is it? We want to turn this place into a science, R & D and technocent center within a large green area. In other words, we want to turn it into a center that educates, educates and teaches people to high technology. The existing structure needs a major overhaul. By fulfilling all these, we want to create a valuable ecosystem within itself. I am already seeing that this ecosystem will be an investment that will positively affect Bayrampaşa, Esenler and even Güngören. It is of course a priority for us to provide good service to the representatives of the sector. The transformation of this bus station is also a priority. But when we look at it completely, our first priority is the interests of Istanbul and 16 million. Look, then the interests of those representing this sector, then the IMM or Bayrampasa Municipality interests. We do not look at our corporate interest, we pursue social interest. So here we really 21. century, we will make a pleasant center where people breathe in the heart of Istanbul. Otherwise, we do not have the understanding to make a shopping center here. Very clear. If something like that happens, we'il share it with you first. But we don't have this problem. We have to produce public service in the public sphere ”.
“NOBODY WILL NOT VICTIM”
Imamoğlu said that they would support the transportation of the bus station to the right place without the victim of the transportation of people, with the mobile bus stations. We want to place a point. This applies to both Harem and Bayrampaşa. But I see our bus station here has higher organizational power. We're going to build a systematic work. We have to accomplish this with a system in which the IMM and district municipalities are located, wherever they are to be moved, and even the sector representatives, academicians and universities that will produce the project, and transportation specialists. Our only condition is that we have to do it fast. Because Istanbul is in a hurry. He is in a hurry about this as well as everything else. There is no hesitation when we put our cooperation together. Transparency, opening the doors in front of the public in the system and you will see this work will be solved in a very short time. May it be beneficial for Istanbul ”. İmamoğlu to, Turkey Bus Federation (TOFED) by a passenger bus model was a gift.
VAR There are problems related to peace here ”
Imamoglu, who made a speech to numerous shopkeepers surrounding him in front of the Atatürk bust in the bus station square, reiterated his statement to the sector representatives. İmamoğlu inspected the sub-car parks, bus garages and artisan floors of the bus station, which are widely talked about every term of the bus station, under the great interest. İmamoğlu shared his first observations with journalists here:: The measures to be taken when seeing the current situation do not fit in a few sentences. If I sort, the page will not fit. You don't have time. Obviously neglected for years. We will take security and cleaning measures. No one in such a system sends his son and says, 'Get on the bus and get in there. In such a system, the busman cannot serve. While installing the new system, we will invest here in terms of handling the temporary process. We will make our revisions in an effort to transform this place into science, technology and R & D center. I'm uncomfortable. My child does not enter such a place, my wife does not. How can 16 million children of Istanbul's wife enter here? My child or someone else's wife, nobody's family. There's peace in here. This place is no longer functional. ”
