Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu, who participated in the test drive on the Alibeyköy-Eminönü Tram Line, said that metro investments will be their priority and their attempts to use internet in the subways are continuing, and they have requested permission from the Ministry of Interior.
Emphasizing that metro investments will be their priority, İmamoğlu underlined that they do not want any work to be left unfinished. Pointing out that they aim to realize all the investments that have stopped, İmamoğlu shared the following information about the lines in question:
“For example, one of the lines that I'm excited about is the Dudullu - Bostancı line. Again, Çekmeköy - Sancaktepe meets the City Hospital there - then lines such as the Sultanbeyli continuation are very important. The Hızray issue is an important issue for us in 2021. So Sabiha Gökçen Halkalıwill connect to. It will be reached from one end of the city to the other in 55 minutes. Also, my friends are conducting a very economical study. Within the project, there will be a line that connects the city to the west and east of the city with a very fast pass, by taking advantage of the existing stations, that is, with 12 stations. Again, we will hopefully prepare for another tender in 2021, the İncirli - Beylikdüzü line. West of Istanbul is very bad in terms of rail system. When you say the İncirli - Beylükdüzü line, it is a line that takes Küçükçekmece, Sefaköy, Avcılar, Esenyurt and even Büyükçekmece. All this rail system Istanbul's attainment of a modern rail system and meeting with a beautiful environment is a work like a major completion organization in terms of Istanbul's future vision. God willing, may Allah endure all. "
"OUR INITIATIVES RELATED TO INTERNET USAGE IN METRO CONTINUES"
Regarding the question about internet usage in subways, İmamoğlu said, “Our attempts to use internet in rail systems continue. Our request for permission from the Ministry of Interior continues. We even have views that we do not have an obstacle to use it on driverless lines. More precisely, the regulation of the work allows this in the logic that prohibits this. We have stated that we want to start especially on Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey Line. It is currently under review. I hope we will take care of this and we will offer internet access on metro lines as soon as possible ”.
