Gürbağ company, which built the Abide Junction in Şanlıurfa where 15 people drowned in the muddy waters of the recent floods, received a new tender of 3.9 billion liras. The company was given the project of completing the Diyarbakır City Hospital that Limak corporation left unfinished.
Gürbağ Group, the contractor company of Abide Köprülü Viaduct Junction, where 8 people drowned in the flood disaster in Urfa, is also the contractor company of Diyarbakır City Hospital.
It was only recently that President Erdogan made a special trip to the Urfa district to open and celebrate the significant accomplishment of the Abide Köprülü Viaduct junction. A government-friendly construction corporation did the project, and in order for Erdogan to showcase the bridge before the upcoming elections and celebrate it as his political accomplishment, the corporation cut many corners and allowed it to be opened before completing all the requirements.
Only a few months after its opening, the entire junction was flooded because the government-friendly firm did not do the water drainage correctly. Many people lost their lives in the flood here, due to shoddy construction.
According to Sözcü’s Özgür Cebe, Halil Bağıban is the owner of Gürbağ Group, which is the parent company Ohitan that built the viaducts of the Abide Köprülü Junction. Halil Bağıban introduced the viaduct project with the words “Abide Köprülü Kavşağı has been a service worthy of Şanlıurfa”. It turned out that Gürbağ, who built the death junction, also received the tender for the 1000-bed Diyarbakır City Hospital 3 months ago.
The tender for Diyarbakır City Hospital remained with Limak Holding on 23 August 2021 at a cost of 1 billion 93 million 312 thousand TL. The contract was signed on November 2, 2021. Limak stopped the construction after a while. The Ministry of Health has re-tendered the hospital project between 23-29 November 2022. Siyah Kalem-Zey partnership, YDA, İntaş, Nesma, Ahes and Shem, Rec and Gürbağ company presented their proposals. The tender was awarded to Gürbağ for 3 billion 924 million liras at a price of three times the original bid.
