The construction of the Gebze OSB-Darica coastal rail line was transferred to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure with the decision published in the official newspaper last month.
After the transfer of authority to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure necessary for the construction of the railway system line, the perception that the metro line would be built by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure and that any money would not come out of the budget of Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality was formed.
However, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure 1 May 2019 dated and published in the official newspaper No. 30761 and issued a decree on the statement;
Metro The repayment of the subway investment previously determined in the law and transfer protocols is tried to be met by cutting the rate of 5 from the shares to be allocated over the total budget tax revenues of the municipality. When the size of the investment is taken into consideration, the collection is extended over many years, but the citizen can start to benefit from the investment as soon as possible.
Contrary to the aforementioned news, with this change, municipalities have high-cost subway investments that they would not be able to make with their own budget facilities, and the Treasury contributes to local governments by spreading the debt in the long term. ”
As it is understood from the statement, the construction of Gebze Organized Industrial Zone - Darıca coastal rail line was transferred to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. However, the money to be spent in construction, Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality budget for many years, seems to be cut in monthly installments. (Xnumxhavadis)
