Bursa's longing for the train does not seem to end in the short term.
Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Cahit Turan's statement yesterday announced that this yearning of Bursa will end only in 2023, but there is still a clear date for the infrastructure and Bursa-Osmaneli superstructure, signaling, electrification and telecommunication tender.
In vague terms, 'the tender will be held by the end of the year in line with budget facilities' said.
While reading this statement, Mehmet Albayrak, the head of the Bursa Chamber of Civil Engineers, called.
He said to our e-mail that IMO's Transportation Commission sent a report on the fate of Bursa High Speed Train project.
Though the name of the project is no longer a high-speed train.
Our elder Ahmet Emin Yilmaz recently announced this development.
The IMO report draws attention to this with the following lines;
“We have mentioned many times the importance of high speed train for our city. However, it was disappointing that the Bursa-Bilecik (Osmaneli) High Speed Railway Project, which was planned to pass through our city recently, was changed to High Standard Railway for cost reasons. Bursa 'stadium, subway in every area' cuts its own core '. Despite the added value it produces, it is a city that cannot get Ankara's support sufficiently. ”
These lines of the IMO Transport Commission are actually a message to the capital.
Obviously, they bring the decision-makers in the capital to say, unuz You don't give up the right to this city. ”
There is an emphasis on the kind of train, the report drew attention to Turkey's high-speed train network and its investments.
It is reminded that the foundation of the Bursa project was laid at the end of 2012.
An opportunity is missed, the importance of going to Istanbul instead of Osmaneli Osmangazi Bridge draws attention to the following;
Keş I wish the word “engineering mez would not be liked, but as the IMO Bursa Branch has argued from the past, 'I wish I had reached Istanbul by high speed train connection via Osmangazi Bridge'.
While it was not possible to achieve this, we learned that the system, which was considered as a high speed train, was revised as a high standard railway. The reasons for this are the difficulty of topography and the cost. It is our right to connect Bursa's delayed railway connection to the high-speed train standards and to Bandırma, which is the beginning of the project, to Gemlik Port (sea connection), which is the shorter line. In this way, Eskisehir will reach the sea from the shortest distance by rail line in our province outside Bursa. I hope that TCDD takes this proposal into consideration and completes the Bursa line as a high-speed train in a short time with the chance to pay for itself as both freight and passenger. ”
IMO wants the NGOs and politicians in Bursa to take action with the following lines:
“As the IMO Bursa Branch, we believe that our President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will complete the project as promised in Bursa, starting from the promise of 'No service will be left, no investment, no projects, no works will be left idle'. We wish both our politicians and non-governmental organizations to take action to prevent losing the last ticket of the city. ”
You need to hand it over.
IMO Bursa Branch has shown sensitivity in this matter for a long time. (Olay- İhsan Aydın)
