Mecidiyeköy station of the newly opened Mecidiyeköy-Mahmutbey metro line was temporarily closed to operation. IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlu said, “Our experts have been examining it for two days. We will share it after the report comes out. Unfortunately, a bad job has been done. "We think it has a problem with water and drainage, insulation," he said.
İmamoğlu answered the question of when the problem of the closed Mahmutbey-Mecidiyeköy Metro at Mecidiyeköy station will be solved. The last five years have been so full of indescribable negligence… Look at the subway line in question. What if a subway line is awarded with two tenders? Sir, your structure is different. Someone else will do the technique and the mechanics… There is no such thing, these works are holistic. It can be a consortium; but it should be holistic, harmonious and integrated. There are a lot of technical problems. Not just that on the line. There are lines we are still dealing with.
We worked so hard to fix such isolation problems on the Ümraniye - Üsküdar line? Our experts have been studying it for two days. After the report is released, we will share it with you. Unfortunately, a bad job has been done. Let me give you the most concrete example; Eminönü-Alibeyköy line. We removed the rails and concretes of 2.3 km again, drilled hundreds of piles 60-70 meters deep, and rebuilt them. Unfortunately, we think that there is a problem with water and drainage and insulation, rather than what has been done in the past. But now a legal application has been made. Experts do their work there. After the problem occurs, we will share it ”.
