In the High Speed Train (YHT) project between Istanbul and Ankara, the shipment of the sleepers used between the rails has started. Due to the freight trains completely closed the railway line passing through the district, the inhabitants of the district turned into torture.
Thousands of tons of concrete sleepers to be used in the construction of YHT rails brought from other regions and manufactured in the concrete sleeper factory in Pamukova District are brought to Pamukova train station and dispatched to the region they will go from. Traverse filled wagons are also kept on unused wagon roads at the stations due to the density.
The cargo wagons along the Pamukova Station and the concrete sleepers used for laying the YHT rails around the station leave the residents in the neighborhoods on the lower side of the railway. Stations of hundreds of meters in the station because of freight wagons and tons of concrete traverses due to hard to go home to the residents of the region said that they come to the nose every day with death. To get to their schools from their homes every day, the Pamukovans, who have to go through the freight wagons and concrete sleepers, either crawled under the wagon to reach across, or climbed over the freight wagon. Especially for the elderly, this situation becomes a state of torture, to go to their homes about 1 miles crossing the level crossing had to pass through, he said.
TCDD officials, this mobility will continue to a single more, there are no other lines to pull the freight wagons, he said.
