İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu took his hand in Büyükçekmece, which has been neglected by the Metropolitan Municipality for 25 years. Examining the works carried out by IMM on the coastline, which the people of the district have complained about for many years, İmamoğlu pointed out July for the first fruits of the project. İmamoğlu good news, “Hopefully, we will see the first data of the identity we want to create on the beaches in July here. Büyükçekmece will have a sparkling beach, a cordon, with its infrastructure and superstructure that have been neglected for years. Büyükçekmece will both win the people and become a center of attraction for people from nearby Çatalca to Esenyurt, from Beylikdüzü to Avcılar and even to Başakşehir ”.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğlu closely examined the work of Büyükçekmece - Beylikdüzü District Kordonboyu Arrangement Project. İmamoğlu, who made examinations along the beach where the people of Büyükçekmece and summer houses are most intense, received information from the project managers. Mayor of Büyükçekmece Hasan Akgün and İSKİ General Manager Raif Mermutlu accompanied İmamoğlu's study tour.
POPULATION GROWED, NEEDS GROWED
Visiting the beach with the intense interest of the citizens, İmamoğlu made evaluations at the end of the tour. Stating that Büyükçekmece beach is a 30-year experience for him, İmamoğlu said, “We are in a very valuable area. Our Mayor, who has made very valuable investments in the past, is also here. But of course, as time passed, the needs grew, the population grew in the background ”he said.
IMM'S HAND IS NOT INVOLVED
Noting that he understood the desire and excitement of District Mayor Hasan Akgün for the project to be completed as soon as possible, İmamoğlu said, “Of course, when the hand of the Metropolitan Municipality has not touched for 25 years, he wants it to end immediately. "We are trying to get it together quickly," he said. İmamoğlu continued as follows:
“I got the statistics 30 years ago from now; In total, the population of Büyükçekmece, Esenyurt and Avcılar was 300 thousand. Currently, the total population of these districts is about 2 and a half million people. Therefore, you need to create a base that appeals to a population of 2 and a half million. At this point, we paid special attention to this area. Hasan Bey already had a design. From Bababurnu to Gürpınar Fish Market. There is a line of about 16 kilometers. The first stage of this is right in front of Büyükçekmece. We can even call it the first cord of this section. We have been continuing the infrastructure works for a long time in the part between the marina and the border of Gürpınar. İSKİ collected both clean water, waste water and rainwater lines here. "
WE GIVE NEW IDENTITY TO THE COAST
Underlining that Istanbul's beaches should have an identity instead of being different from each other, İmamoğlu continued his assessment as follows:
“We will collect the recreation of approximately 1 thousand square meters, which we define as the 100st stage, as of July. It has been matured with a design that will preserve the innocence of this sea and allow people to meet the sea in the best way possible. Officials of our institution at every stage; Everything we will produce here, from project studies to science works, from İSKİ to İSTON, is also related to the identity that Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality will add to the beach in this period. In other words, we want to create a truly sparkling beach with a new identity. We are building an environment with a human-oriented approach, with an understanding that puts little or no obstacle between people and the sea, between people and the beach. "
WE WILL COME AND TALK AGAIN WHEN IT IS FINISHED
Saying, “Hopefully, we will see the first data of that identity here in July,” said İmamoğlu and said, “We will attain the value it deserves with an aesthetic production here. It will have a sparkling beach and cordon, with its infrastructure and superstructure that have been neglected for years. Both Büyükçekmece will win the people and become a center of attraction for people from nearby Çatalca to Esenyurt, from Beylikdüzü to Avcılar and even to Başakşehir. I congratulate my friends. I would like to thank my President Hasan for his attention and interest in every detail. I hope we will come and talk here when it is over, ”he concluded.
