We also built and improved 135 kilometers of single-track roads in Bilecik. We built 6 double tube tunnels with a total length of 524 thousand 2 meters.

We gave our cities a breath of fresh air with transit passes. We, with our service and work policy, saw service to our people as a service to 'God'. In our service moves, we never got into day-to-day discussions. We have more work to do, more to go. We have acted with the awareness that every investment and every project we have realized so far is the seeds we sow for the bright future of our country. In the last 20 years, we have invested 183 billion dollars in the transportation and communication infrastructure of our country. In this way; We contributed 520 billion dollars to national income, 1 trillion 79 billion dollars to production and 18 million people to employment. We are strengthening Turkey's transportation and communication infrastructure, day and night, with hundreds of thousands of employees at our over 4 construction sites all over our country. We increased our divided road length from 6 thousand kilometers to 28 thousand 664 kilometers. We have increased our highway network to 3 thousand 633 kilometers. We made our country the 6th High Speed ​​Train operator in Europe and the 8th in the world. We built 1432 kilometers of High Speed ​​​​Train line. We increased our conventional line length to 11 thousand 590 kilometers. We increased our total railway network to 13 thousand 22 kilometers. We increased the number of airports from 26 to 57. By increasing our international flights to 129 destinations in 338 countries, we became the country that flies to the most destinations in the world by air. We increased the number of ports from 2002 in 149 to 217, and the number of shipyards from 37 to 84. Look, 20 years ago; 'The four corners of our country will be equipped with divided roads, our people will travel by high-speed trains. When we say that, trains, subways, cars will pass under the Bosphorus with tube passages, airlines will be the way of the people, everyone from 7 to 70 will use high-speed internet; some of them did not believe us and even tried to make fun of them. But today we have accomplished all of these things. We are not satisfied, we said that we will build a national high-speed train, we will send our domestic satellites to space. We said we will make a domestic plane. We said that we will bring Kanal Istanbul to life. Thank God, we will implement them just as we have fulfilled the previous promises we made," he said.

They exist, let them continue their lies,” Karaismailoğlu said, adding that they will not stop serving, and that they will continue to wave the flag at the top. Underlining that the needs of the people should be determined well and the wishes of the people should be kept at the forefront, Karaismailoğlu said, “We do not pretend to be populist like others and lie down. We are working hard for the future of Turkey. The state of the provinces and districts governed by the opposition municipalities is obvious! Let's hope they fix it. They have no projects, no employment, but there is a lot of talk. We are not like them, nor will we be. In the AK Party, there is a service to the people, not to the ideology," he said.
