Adiyaman wants to train

Adiyaman wants to train: representatives of non-governmental organizations gathered in Adiyaman asked for the transportation of freight in the city by rail network.
In Adıyaman, the insistent demands of non-governmental organizations regarding the railway continue. MUSIAD, TUMSIAD, Chamber of Commerce and Industry emphasized the importance of irrigation and railroad network at the point of economic development of Adıyaman.
President of MUSIAD Serif Yildirim, the world's marble reserves of the 4'ın Adiyaman'da and that the marble TIR'la loaded with the costs of drawing attention, the railway would fall in the case of this cost would fall. Yıldırım said that the transportation of other products, especially marble, involved a high cost. Yıldırım said:
“Every day, hundreds of tons of marble from Adıyaman is transported to the Middle East countries or Mersin Port with a truck and transported from here to Far East countries by ships. Currently, trucks are carrying the weight of marble from 40-50 TL, when the freight train arrives, this cost will decrease to 10-15 TL. As MUSIAD, we presented a file on railways to the Minister of Transport, Communications and Maritime Affairs, who attended our meeting in Elazig. In a city where 4 percent of the world's marble reserves are located, there must be a train to be used in freight transportation. In addition, train is required for passenger transportation. The railway network that comes to Gölbaşı district must extend to Kahta district through Adıyaman. The cost of the railroad may be high, but it is gratifying that the government has set its 2023 targets and reached that year. There is sensitivity in all segments of the society for the implementation of the project. As MUSIAD, we strive to do our part. "
TÜMSİAD President Erkan Çakmak stated that Adıyaman is a tourism city and has a developing industry and said: “It is important to bring the railroad in Adıyaman in both passenger and freight transportation. Transportation cost is the primary expense affecting the unit cost of the products produced. The shipping cost directly increases the price. In this case, it reduces the competitiveness of the produced goods in the market and significantly reduces the profit margin of our farmers or industrialists who produce. Railroad is an inexpensive mode of transport. It is indispensable for provinces such as Adıyaman whose economy and industry are newly developing. "
In our country where high-speed trains are spoken, the fact that the railway network has not yet arrived in Adıyaman has increased the victimhood of Adıyaman and continued: “Adıyaman, who cannot get the place it deserves from the incentive law, is economically weak from neighboring provinces. With investments such as railways, Adıyaman should have a chance to compete with neighboring provinces. The city of peace, Adıyaman, deserves all investments. This unrequited self-sacrifice should be crowned. We want the high-speed train to be considered for Adıyaman in passenger transportation as well as the railroad. We have to keep our goal high, we must persistently demand this issue in unity. As TÜMSİAD, we previously conveyed our rail requests to the addressees of the issue. Again, as TÜMSİAD, we are ready to do our part in this regard. "
Adıyaman Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Mustafa Uslu pointed out that Adıyaman needs a freight train before the passenger transportation. Ilı The arrival of the railway will provide huge gains to both Adıyaman and the country's economy. Every day tons of marble are transported by truck. On the one hand, the cost increases, while on the other hand, these TIRs are damaging the national economy. If railways are used in freight transportation, the roads will not be broken and the costs will decrease. Adiyaman primarily needs to arrive the freight train. Of course, it is beneficial for our city to be a train in passenger transportation, but our priority is to use the train in freight transportation. On the other hand, cotton and other products from foreign countries are coming to Adıyaman with TIR. The transport cost will drop by rail. In the 2010, when we applied for the railway, the concerned persons came to the pre-feasibility study. However, it was stated that the railway was not very rentable. However, the Prime Minister and Ministers who visited our city in the past days were given a file. We will continue to do our part. Railways are costly investments. Not in a year or two. Being at the 2023 target is good for us. I don't think you'd be there before that. God willing, we bring to Adiyaman. İn
Lütfi Elvan, Minister of Transport, Communications and Maritime Affairs, who came to Adıyaman, stated that taking the city into the network is one of the targets of 2023 year.
