Let Konya's tram problem, which has been on the agenda for years, be discussed, the first domestic tram called "silkworm", which a company in Bursa continues its production activities, has come down on rails. According to the statement made by Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, the first domestic tram produced in Bursa under the leadership of the municipality and designed as "Silkworm" was brought to the Burulaş workshop. Metropolitan Mayor Recep Altepe also made the test drive of the first domestic tram.
Even the tender of the Konya Metropolitan Municipality regarding the purchase of new trams could not be concluded for months, and the fact that Bursa Metropolitan Municipality put its own trams on the rails caused controversy. Making a statement on the subject, Bursa Metropolitan Mayor Recep Altepe said, “The silkworm is on the rail. A very important condition for Bursa and Turkey. The vehicles that we have bought from abroad with huge amounts of money will now be produced in Bursa. The entire mechanical, electronic and management system of this first domestic vehicle is completely produced by Bursa. It was the first time that we produced a vehicle with our own patent and our own brand. ”
Industrialists, who thought that the Konya industry had the capacity to produce trams, criticized that Konya Metropolitan Municipality would buy trams from outside. After the silkworm got on the rails, the reactions to the municipality started to increase. The citizens, who have become the bleeding wound of Konya transportation for years and who say that the tram problem that cannot be solved should be solved as soon as possible, increased their reactions when the news that Bursa produced its own tram on top of the new trams that are expected to come for a while. Citizens who say, “We are not able to buy trams while the men are making trams”, says that the Metropolitan Municipality cannot find a solution to Konya's transportation problem.
