One of the vision projects that Bergama Mayor Hakan Koştu promised to the citizens in the March 31 elections becomes more real. President Koştu's insistent follow-ups before the ministries in Ankara for vision projects continue to bear fruit.
With the initiatives of Mayor Hakan Koştu, who had a meeting with the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Adil Karaismailoğlu in Ankara and drew attention to the importance of İZBAN for Bergama and Ankara's focus on the project, the İZBAN project between Bergama-Aliağa construction will continue where it left off. While the expropriation works continue rapidly in Bergama on the route İZBAN will pass through, expropriation negotiations with the land owners are starting in September. Meeting with Murat Bakır, State Railways (TCDD) 3rd Regional Director and having consultations on İZBAN, President Koştu said, “İZBAN is very important for our Bergama. It is extremely important that İZBAN extends to our historical city Bergama. Our Bergama will be the shining star of the North Aegean with big projects such as İzmir, Istanbul highways, natural gas works, Çandarlı Port Project, Western Anatolia Free Zone and Organized Industrial Zone. "We continue to get the signals of being a star more clearly every day."
Mayor Hakan Koştu, who pointed out that the İZBAN, where the stops and overpasses between Aliağa and Bergama will be built by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, has been mobilized to extend to Bergama, said: “Our Vice President, Mr. I would like to thank our Ak Party Provincial Chair, Mr. Kerem Ali Continuous, our Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, Mr. Adil Karaismailoğlu, our regional deputies, ministry bureaucrats and related institution directors for their support. "The arrival of İZBAN to Bergama is also very important for the tourism development of our district."
