In the T2 tram line, which is the project of Bursa Metropolitan Municipality to connect the rail system with the north of the city, the works were accelerated after the place delivery was made to the company that won the tender. Metropolitan Mayor Alinur Aktaş, who examined the works on site, personally fired the first source on the rails.
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality designed the city in line with the goals of weaving the city with iron nets, but the construction was stopped due to the foreign exchange turbulence experienced after the last general elections and the liquidation request made by the contractor company to the Ministry. Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Department of Transportation carried out the 'completion works' tender for the Construction of the City Square - Terminal Tram Line Construction Work with a total length of 11 thousand 9 meters with 445 stations on 05 August. While the contract was signed with Öztimur company, which won the tender, on 21 August, the works started after the site delivery on 3 September. Within the scope of the tender, all deficiencies such as missing rail resources in the track superstructure, stretching the rails, making adjustments, scissors assemblies, scissors welds, completing the missing productions, siding of 9 overpass stations on the line, glass and prefabricated coating works will be completed.
Target is the end of 2021
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Alinur Aktaş and his accompanying Bursa Deputy Zafer Işık examined the ongoing works on the rails on site. Stating that one of the most talked about topics in Bursa since 2015 is the T2 line, Mayor Aktaş reminded that the project has been delayed due to the effects such as unfortunate tenders, developments in the economy and the pandemic process. Stating that the new tender was made after the termination of the contract with the existing contractor, Mayor Aktaş said, “We signed a contract with Öztimur Yapı Proje, which won the tender. We made the delivery of the site within the scope of the contract of 31 million 400 thousand TL on September 3 and the company started work immediately. This is not the whole job. As you know, we are completing the project with the tender of the European Investment Bank. The European Investment Bank does not support half jobs. For this reason, we finish our half works related to construction and stations with our own means. The other part is of course the subject of tender and will be tendered in a few months. They will also be prepared outside and we will see that this system will work until the end of 2021 by assembling the electromechanical systems.
Mayor Aktaş emphasized that they will implement some urban transformation projects in the region, especially Beşyol, in order to make Istanbul Street, which includes hotels, business centers, Demirtaş Organized Industrial Zone and shopping centers even more attractive, and that the T2 line will add a separate attraction to the region.
