The attempted coup that took

place in Turkey on the night of July

15, Friday, targeted our democracy

and constitutional order as well as

our unity. This heinous act failed

thanks to the efforts, sensibility,

and will of our people along with

security forces and members of

the media, who saved our country

from a great catastrophe.

As the Tekfen family, we force-

fully condemn this abhorrent at-

tack on our fundamental values

and the supremacy of the rule of

law; our prayers are with those

who have lost their lives during

this attack, which aimed to un-

leash darkness upon our country;

we wish their families endurance

and extend them our condolences;

and for those who were injured, we

wish speedy recovery.

In these days when our need for

unity and reason is greater than

ever, our duty is to calmly continue

doing what we do best and to pro-

tect our democracy and values with

everything we have.

Pass Infrastructure Construction work of

the Ankara-İzmir Fast Train Project with a

total tender price of TL 879 million (app.

73.7 km long and will include 9 tunnels,

32 underpasses, 19 overpasses, 11 via-

ducts, and 7 bridges.

The targeted completion period of

the project is 36 months. This is Tekfen

Construction’s third railway project fol-

lowing the İstanbul Levent Metro Line

(2000) and the Bursaray Light Rail System

(2008) projects. We will continue report-

ing on this important new project, which

will make a significant contribution to

Turkey’s transportation infrastructure, in

our future issues.
