Train accidents are on the agenda of the Assembly: CHP Ankara Deputy Aylin Nazlıaka brought train accidents to the agenda of the Assembly in the parliamentary question she submitted to the Parliament with the request of the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Lütfi Elvan.
Claiming that AKP governments have a "bad report" in train accidents, Nazlıaka said, "The breakdowns in the YHT show that the technical problems in the railways should be eliminated and the problems experienced should be reviewed immediately in order to prevent a new disaster."
- REMEMBERED ACCIDENTS
Nazlıaka, pointing to major accidents during the AKP rule, said:
“On 22 July 2004, 41 people lost their lives and 89 people were injured in the train accident that took place in Pamukova district of Sakarya.
August 11, 2004 In Kocaeli / Tavşancıl, two passenger trains collided, 8 of our citizens died and 88 people were injured.
On 27 January 2008, Pamukkale Express wagons derailed near Çöğürler Village in Kütahya, 9 people died and 30 people were injured.
On 19 February 2008, the suburban train hit the Anatolian Express, which landed passengers at Ankara Sincan Train Station, and 13 people were injured.
On 23 February 2008, the passenger train collided with the 4 Eylül Mavi train in Şarkışla district of Sivas, and 5 people were injured.
On May 17, 2009, two freight trains collided in Sivas, and a mechanic died.
Cumhuriyet Express, which made the Eskişehir-Istanbul flight on August 27, 2009, hit a construction machine at the exit of Bilecik and was overthrown; 5 people lost their lives, 21 people were injured.
On 3 January 2010, two Eskişehir Expresses collided head-on between Vezirhan and Bakırköy in Bilecik; One person lost his life and eight citizens were injured. "
- "IS IT IN COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS?"
Wanting to find out whether the infrastructure and rails of YHT comply with international standards, Nazlıaka said, "If not, what is the reason for the failures? she asked.
Nazlıaka asked the following questions in the question:
“Despite the fact that it was the first flight of YHT on 25 July 2014 and the Prime Minister, cabinet members and press members were on the train, a more careful journey was planned, but the high-speed train remained on the road. Isn't this a scandal? Doesn't this failure show that the AKP's transportation policies have gone bankrupt?
What causes YHT to stay on top of each other? Can these malfunctions be a harbinger of unwanted accidents? What measures will be taken promptly to address the existing problem?
Are there any technical failures in other countries providing High Speed Train services?
Is the reason for the malfunctions in the YHT due to the fact that the government hastily engaged the high-speed train in order to ignore the safety of the citizen's transportation?
Do you intend to apologize to our citizens who are victims of the transportation delay?
What is the length of rail maintenance maintained in 2002-2014? What is the ratio to the total rail network? What is the amount of resources allocated for this?
What are the reasons for AKP's bad report card in railway accidents? What measures have been taken in this regard?
