High speed train is the most important transportation project that Bursa has been waiting for for many years. 9 years ago, we were happy because the longing was over.
According to the news of Namık Göz from Bursahakimiyet;“When Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç laid the foundations in Balat in 2012 with Minister of Transport Binali Yıldırım, who would later become the last Prime Minister of the parliamentary system, they gave the good news that the high-speed train will come to Bursa in 2016.
However, due to the problems on the route and the tender processes, Bursa's high speed train dream was constantly postponed. Projects have changed. It transformed from high speed to fast then into a High Standard Railway Line.
The expected tender was held in August 2020 by the Ministry of Transport, General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments. Kalyon Construction won the tender for the 201-kilometer Bandırma-Bursa-Yenişehir-Osmaneli High Standard Railway Line Construction and the Supply of Electromechanical Systems.
Kalyon Construction, which won the tender with its bid of 9 billion 449 million TL in the high-speed train project, which follows every step with interest, started to establish its construction site in Yenişehir-Ebeköy last month.
The construction site, which will be established on an area of approximately 45 thousand square meters, will include 6500 square meters of closed sections. In these sections, there will be dormitories, kitchens, a workshop where vehicle maintenance and repairs will be made, a warehouse, study offices and a laboratory.
The first visitors to the construction site met with the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Adil Karaismailoğlu at the AK Party Group meeting last week, and AK Party Bursa deputies Dr. Mustafa Esgin and Refik Özen. The two deputies met with the officials at the construction site and received information about the work done.
His impressions about the interviews and the latest situation Dr. We asked Esgin and Özen. There are new and important developments.
Let me pass them on to you.
Although the foreign loan issue of the tender is at the approval stage at the Ministry of Treasury and Finance, the company is establishing construction sites to avoid wasting time.
Kalyon İnşaat will establish a similar construction site in Ebeköy in Osmaneli. The company's goal is to start the 13-kilometer tunnel construction as soon as possible.
We also asked the attorneys about the fact that the allowance allocated this year is less than the project amount. Our journalist brother, Olay Newspaper Writer, Ahmet Emin Yılmazhad moved it to the corner.
Dr. Esgin emphasized that this is a technical issue and said, 'We have also investigated that subject. An estimated budget is set. However, there will be no trouble as his loan is ready. As the company does business, the allowance will increase accordingly. The allowance above the figures stated there will be released. We are constantly talking about both foreign credit approval and allowance with senior bureaucrats.
I hope that the dream of Kemal Demirel, who served as a CHP MP for two terms, will not be left unfinished this time.
