I wish success to our teachers and colleagues who manage the excavation process here. Of course, on the one hand, Istanbul will serve, and on the other hand, these values will be preserved. According to the latest information, there is a delay due to excavations around this station, but Kabataş - Mahmutbey line does not prohibit the situation. Only this stop can be activated late.

Do you think of a subway study for that area? Everybody expects such news ”and the question indeki This is not a thought. Moreover, this issue Mecidiyeköy - 3. The airport line is currently a tender by the Ministry of Transport. And he walks. This is not a line of tender ethics of the metropolitan municipality.

“WE HAVE OBSERVED ALL SQUARES FROM BAGCILAR TO ESENLER”
Imamoglu said, “Today Kadıköy- You will visit Üsküdar squares. Taksim square is the most curious place for Istanbulites. "What is the first regulation you plan to do about it?" KadıköyIt is not Üsküdar or Taksim, which is much talked about. We observed many squares from Bağcılar to Esenler. I think the big squares, which do not mean anything naked, do not add identity to this city. Taksim is one of them. People want areas where they find more alive and identity. Because the squares also have a historical mission. In this regard, we do not want to sit down and make a decision on our own. Our friends also determined a road map in Taksim. We plan to manage the studies there in part by the competition and the selection of selective boards, in order to obtain some healthy project formation quickly. We intend to present at the discretion of the citizen. When such a method is realized, we will share it with you. We will share it soon. ”
