Uncontrolled ropeways take lives in the Black Sea
The Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) Chamber of Mechanical Engineers Rize Province President Metin Bıçakçı said that the primitive ropeways, which are used extensively in the Black Sea Region, especially in Rize, Artvin, Trabzon and Giresun, continue to die.
In a statement he made, Bıçakçı reminded that the ropeways are used extensively in the transportation of fresh tea, especially in Rize, “However, various accidents occur in the ropeways from time to time due to the lack of standards and the insufficiency of the materials used. This poses a danger in terms of life and property safety. The narrow roads in some places also prevent transportation by vehicle. This situation causes our people to use the primitive ropeway system to reach their homes. It is obvious that there is not enough attention to technical issues in the production, assembly and use of the cable cars, and there are no standards in this regard. People who use the ropeway under the route where the ropeways are installed should know that they may encounter a danger at any time. Transporting people with these ropeways established for freight transport is an incomprehensible behavior. " said.
Bıçakçı gave information about the cable car accidents that occurred in Rize and neighboring provinces in recent years and said: “On April 3, 2006, one of the primitive ropeways in Rize's Ardeşen district, 50-year-old Salih İnceler, which fell from a height of 39 meters, died. Fikret Özdemir (24) worked on the cable car while repairing the cable car cabin in the incident that took place in Çaykent town on 2006 May 46. Meanwhile, 3 of Özdemir's left hand fingers stuck to the cabinet were broken. On May 25, 2006, Hanife Açıkmeşe (27) lost her left hand little finger as a result of the unannounced start of the ropeway engine in Yamaçköyü, Ardeşen district. On 4 September 2006, Emine Kahya (22) was injured by falling from a height of 10 meters. Georgian national Guram Saginadze (25), who works in the tea garden belonging to Muhittin K in Hamzabey District of Rize, passed from where he was located to the other side by the cable car, and the cable car broke. 10 9 September, 2007, Ramazan Özdemir daughter Azigül Demir had an accident while sending tea with the cable car. The neck was wrapped around the neck, causing neck injury and paralysis. On May 25, 2008, Meltem Berber (12), who lived in the village of Gürsü in Fındıklı district, lost his balance while trying to cross the creek by cable car and drowned by falling into the creek from a height of about 3 meters. On November 1, 2009, 2 people who fell from the cable car in the Çarşıbaşı district of Trabzon were severely injured. On November 22, 2009, a woman named GK (54), who was working in her own hazelnut garden in Çarşıbaşı Taflancık village, died when she fell at the head of the carrier pier connected to the cable car wires established to carry loads. On May 18, 2010, the woman who was hit by the cable car in the Akçaabat district of Trabzon lost her life. On August 9, 2011, the mother and her daughter, who wanted to return to their home on the opposite side of the garden where they gathered tea in Ardeşen District of Rize, were stranded for 200 hours at an altitude of about 4,5 meters when the ropes of the cable car on which they boarded got tangled. 6 A cable car accident happened in the same place a year ago and a young man of 11 had lost his life. Kaan Öztürk (10) lost his life in the incident that took place in Yokuşlu village of Kalkandere district of Rize on 2011 August 15. Ali Vapursu (21), who tried to cross the cable car in the village of İyidere Kalecik on 2012 April 46, fell and died on the Iyidere stream when the platform turned over. Her son, luckily, survived on the cable car. On June 14, 2012, 30-year-old Cumali Babaoğlu, who set up a 70-meter-long cable car line to the ramp to carry wood in Rize's Ardeşen district, quickly moved with the cabin as a result of the breakage of the roller cabin connected by cable. Babaoğlu, who jumped from the cable car cabin in order not to hit the bottom and hit the roots of the cut trees where he fell, died at the scene when his neck broke. The rope of the cable car with the rupture of his daughter by throwing it in the soil to get rid of the father himself without a brake and quickly died in the cable car crashed into the landing point as a result of internal bleeding.
15-20 BIN TELEFERIC WILL BE IN THE REGION
Stating that they estimate that there are 15-20 thousand ropeways in the Black Sea Region, Bıçakçı said, “Cable cars continue to die in the Black Sea. It is deemed necessary to carry out the necessary studies in order to bring a standard as soon as possible to the ropeways where human transportation is also carried out in addition to freight transportation. Within the scope of this study, it is necessary not to make the electrical connection of the ropeways that threaten human health and whose life and property safety is not ensured, and those that have been done should be disabled. " He spoke in the form.
