The signaling system, which is as important as the infrastructure works and rail installation in the railways, will also be national. The Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD), TUBITAK-BİLGEM and Istanbul Technical University has developed in collaboration with the National Railway Signaling System. Thanks to the system planned to be implemented on the 6 thousand 100 kilometer railway line which is not the first stage signaling system, approximately 2 will stay in the state vault of billion pounds.
According to the information from a reporter, TCDD, set in the 2009th Transportation Forum in 10. "The development of the domestic rail industry," acting in line with the objectives of TCDD, Turkey's first indigenous signaling system was put into practice.
In cooperation with TCDD, TUBİTAK-BİLGEM and Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Turkish engineers developed the "National Railway Signalization Project". The system, which cost 4,6 million liras, was commissioned at Adapazarı Mithatpaşa Station. TCDD, which wants to spread the system that has been working smoothly for six months, will implement the domestic signaling system on the Afyon-Denizli-Isparta line, which is 338 kilometers long and includes 21 stations. 65 million lira will be spent for the said line to have a domestic signaling system. If this line was awarded to a foreign company, its approximate cost would reach 165 million lira.
If 6 thousand 100 kilometers of railway lines without a signalization system are built with a local signaling system, approximately 2 billion liras will remain in the state's safe. Aiming to become a major rail base in Turkey, the Middle East countries initially developed these systems and the Turkish Republic is aimed to export the entire world, including the general.
Look Yildirim: "Turkey's offering a bright future," -
Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Binali Yildirim, National Signaling System to AA said in a statement to reporters on contemporary Since 2003 years, modern Turkey arm that the plaster and the road to build, sea, air, rail, and they begin to build their information the way, over the years 10 also said they have made significant progress.
Stating that their aim is not just to make roads, but that all the sectors concerned are trying to be revived or even strengthened, Yıldırım said:
"No gains achieved so much from the past in Turkey do not count, we're going with all that is good and beautiful, but our main target; Turkey to restore a bright future. We aspire to this bright future. For this reason, we attach great importance to domestic production in all our business areas. In 2009, we developed the 'National Railway Signalization Project' in line with the target of 'developing the domestic railway industry' determined at the 10th Transport Council, we put it into practice and we will spread the project.
If TCDD's 6 thousand 100-kilometer railway lines, which do not have signaling conflict, are built with the domestic signaling system, approximately 2 billion liras will remain in the state's safe. We attach great importance to this. We knew we had to develop the domestic rail industry. As a result of work we do in this context, not only the local signaling system today, our own high-speed train rails, however, our sleepers, fasteners, we have put our industrial infrastructure in Turkey can produce. "
- "Foreign dependency will be eliminated" -
Current status as of just 12 percent of 33-thousand-kilometer railway line in Turkey, in other words, about 4 thousand kilometers of line cutting of Stating that it has the signaling system, all of the systems used in this line is different signaling systems manufactured by foreign companies, all the lines He noted that the inability to bid as a whole for signaling caused the use of different systems on the lines.
Said the situation in Turkey is reminiscent of an obstacle in front of the industry as the signaling system for the Lightning, he said:
“This situation causes high costs in regions where inter-system integration is required. In addition, the cost of an additional component that needs to be added to existing systems can be very high due to software changes. The fact that the companies that install the signalization systems are located abroad cause the initial investment costs of the systems and the prices of spare parts and materials to be high. There is a waste of time in the provision of maintenance and needs. With the National Railway Signalization Project, we aim to eliminate external dependency in railway signaling and to solve many similar critical problems at low cost.
