T1 tramline will affect Bursa traffic

T1 tramline will affect the traffic in Bursa: Chamber of Civil Engineers (İMO) Bursa Branch President Necati Şahin made a statement about the T1 tram line.

T1 tram line for relieving urban transportation is delayed by one year. Chamber of Civil Engineers (IMO) Bursa Branch Chairman Necati Sahin said that the line would cause problems in urban traffic.

Speaking at the room conference room in the BAOB, İMO Bursa Branch President Necati Şahin stated that the initiation of the T1 tram line process before the completion of the 100.000 / 1 scale transportation master plan for Bursa is contrary to technical and scientific understanding. Noting that the T1 Tram line was built on 25 June 2012 before the development plan process was completed, Şahin stressed that the topography of the existing T1 route does not comply with the tramway operation, therefore it poses serious risks in terms of operating expense, travel comfort and safety. Şahin said, “The biggest longitudinal slope in tram systems was determined as 6 percent in urban rail public transport criteria published by DLH General Directorate. The T1 line route has slopes around 8.2 percent due to the existing road elevations and the land structure. This situation causes inclined stations to be created and operation cost and speed will be negatively affected. Tram wagons have been modified by going beyond the standard. In addition, the roads were modified according to the tram line and the rails were adapted to the rails, not the roads. ”

T1 tram line covered a narrow region, the maximum number of passengers on this route in the single direction 14 wagon 34 thousand people stated that Necati Sahin said:

“However, the number of passengers per day in the statue area is 304 thousand. Only 10 percent of this demand will be met by T1. Since there will be 6 wagons in the vehicle tender, 14-15 thousand people will be moved for now. With today's project of the T1 tram line, there will be no positive effect on removing any type of transportation other than the old Central Garage-Sculpture taxi-minibuses and pedestrianizing Atatürk Street. Both bus lines and private transportation vehicle traffic will continue. We also do not believe that the taxi minibuses, which were previously stated to be removed after the end of the T1 tram line, will be completely withdrawn from traffic in the near future. ”

Reminding that the light rail system (BHRS) uses the number of flights every 2.5 minutes every 10 minutes, Şahin reminded that he uses only 28 percent of his capacity, and emphasized that there will be serious slowdowns in traffic flow and other types of public transportation due to the tram priority signaling system. Şahin said, “Due to the T1 line, there will be difficulties in traffic circulation at intersection intersections, especially at the entrances of Gazcılar- Cumhuriyet Caddesi-Stadium Stadium-Kent Square. The municipality said last year, 'We will shoot the first pickaxe in May, at the end of the year the silkworm will be on the road'. According to this planning, it is understood that there is a 1-year delay. In other words, they will be officially announced that the wagon brand will be Silkworm by the Metropolitan Municipality 410 days ago, they will be in the future and have been able to predict who will award the tender with zero error. In addition, there was no explanation as to why the number of 28 wagons, which were stated to be purchased in the press release dated January 2012, 14, was reduced to 6 wagons. Before the wagon tender was made, it was clearly stated which brand wagon to buy, and the tender was shadowed. These statements were repeated hundreds of times with advertisements placed only on billboards, newspapers, magazines and TVs that did not remain with this. ”


Şahin, who criticized the test area costing 1 million 734 thousand euros in Burulaş's field, said, “In addition to the power lines of 500 volt rail system wagons in the test area, 750 volt energy lines suitable for tram were allocated to Silkworm without a tender wagon. This situation revealed that the test area is considered only as a demonstration area. Because this test area is not an accredited test area, it is understood by the allocation of Silkworm as a demonstration route to the Silkworm that Burulaş did not manufacture wagons even though he did not manufacture wagons. It is inevitable that there will be big problems in the tram lines going along the side of the road, short parking, shipping of goods, garbage collection, emergency ambulance entrances and fires. ”

Şahin stated that they support the use of tram, which is a modern and comfortable means of transportation, in the city public transportation as part of the public transportation system and said, “We support 100% of local tram production. However, we do not find the behavior of the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality in the tender process of the Silkworm branded tram vehicle and the tender process delivered to the address. Bursa transportation master plan (BUAP) studies have been kept in the Metropolitan Municipality Council Transportation Commission for 10 months. In this process, although the tram line was not foreseen in Çekirge Avenue and T. Mehmet Ali Avenue in the projection of 2020-2030 in BUAP, unfortunately, it was declared by Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, where the tram line will be extended to Çekirge Avenue and T. Mehmet Ali Avenue. It is a new misfortune to take a parliamentary decision to extend it to T. Mehmet Ali Avenue. In this period of technology age, the T1 line project was wrong, that we live in Bursa and we regret that the roads that we have been dreaming of for years and we want to be a compulsory pedestrian zone are occupied in this way, and that the public transportation system is integrated and integrated instead of partial solutions. We want the revision of the transportation master plan studies to be purified from the imposition projects. ”
