What happened to Bursa Ankara High Speed Train Project? : CHP Bursa MP, TBMM Court Clerk Member Nurhayat Altaca Kayışoğlu asked the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Mehmet Cahit Turhan when the Bursa Ankara High Speed Train Project will be completed.
Reminding that the foundation of the Bursa-Ankara High Speed Train Project was laid on December 23, 2012, Altaca Kayışoğlu said, “The ministers who spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony stated that the distance between Bursa and Ankara will decrease to 2016 hours in 2,5. Almost three years have passed since 2016. Bursians still go to Ankara by road. It is still five and a half hours between Bursa and Ankara. ”
Bursa Ankara YHT
CHP Bursa MP Nurhayat Altaca Kayışoğlu made the following statement regarding the issue, noting that the ruling wing made statements that kept the public in the process of delaying the YHT Project on the agenda of the Turkish Grand National Assembly:
“They constantly gave news such as giving good news to Bursa people. They chose to mislead Bursa public opinion by giving new dates rather than why it was not finished in 2016. Before the general elections of 24 June 2018, the ruling lawmakers were heralding that the Bursa-Ankara High Speed Train Project will be completed in 2020 as if it had forgotten a 4-year delay. However, even the realization rate of the Balat-Yenişehir line shows that the project is impossible to complete at this date. Moreover, the tender for the Yenişehir-Bilecik Osmaneli line, the second phase of the project, has also been canceled in September. ”
Emphasizing that it is important to inform the public about the Bursa-Ankara YHT Project, Altaca Kayışoğlu said, “We expect the Bursa-Ankara High Speed Project to be completed, which is now back to the snake story. Our expectation from the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Mehmet Cahit Turan is; we understand, you can not match the dates you have given at least give a realistic date that will not mislead Bursa people. For this purpose, we brought the matter to the Assembly and asked Minister Turhan; When will Bursa-Ankara High-speed Train Project be finished? ”
