Complaint filed to halt tender for third airport

 

The tender for Istanbul’s third airport, due to be made on May 3, has been sued by the head office of the Turkish Chamber of Environmental Engineers (ÇMO) of the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects, on the grounds that the project violated the existing legislation for the environmental impact assessment (ÇED) report preparation.

The commission for the examination and assessment for the third airport project’s environmental impact was convened on April 9. The project was suspended on April 22 for 10 working days (excluding both weekends and holidays) in order to gauge public opinion about the project, according to the legislation.
