Description of Metrobus accidents from MMO

Description of the Metrobus accidents from the MMO: The Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) reacted to the increasing number of metrobus accidents and the lack of long-term measures. Battal Kılıç, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TMMOB Istanbul Branch said, kaza Since 2007 has been put into service since the launch of Metrobus, our warnings have not been taken into consideration by the authorities.
As in the accident that occurred in Sefaköy, one of the most threatening elements of the traffic in the metrobus line is that there is a reverse traffic flow. Although the traffic flow in our country is from the right lane, BRT drivers are constantly driving in opposite directions during their work hours. In contrast to normal conditions, this situation increases the probability of accidents by causing the drivers to lose concentration and sometimes to reflexes as needed. However, as the reverse direction application, metrobus take the main road or the accident in Sefaköy, the vehicles cross the lane and enter the BRT road lead to a collision. If the cars are the legal limit of 5 km / h in E70 and the BRTs are driving at 50km / h, the vehicles can hit each other with a total speed of 120, thus increasing the deaths in accidents.
It is seen that by taking the security lanes of the highway, the road allocated to the metrobus both narrows the road to motor vehicles and increases the probability of accidents in the road of BRT. The loss of security areas that will escape during any loss of control of the drivers on the narrowing road has been one of the factors increasing the probability of accidents.
WHAT CAN BE DONE
Battal Sword önüne Small revisions, instead of vehicles with bellows buses, instead of the appropriate vehicles to the road BRT road, the application of the opposite direction should be removed, so that in the event of possible accidents, head-on collisions should be prevented. If this cannot be done in the short term, the barriers separating the Metrobüs road in the other way should be seriously strengthened and the vehicles should not be entered into the metrobus road or metrobus flowing traffic. For this, dır Energy Dampener and Router lendirici Barriers should be used. Bun
Hasan Yılmaz Özger, Istanbul Branch Manager of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers (TMO), who joined the press conference as a speaker, said: bağlı The energy damping barrier can be considered as a short-term solution. We think the metrobus should be passed to the rail system, the rail system will not be passed for the time being, but at least we think that the reverse flow should be brought into a straight direction flow.

The description of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers is as follows:
Kayb Istanbul D100 highway In the direction of Sefaköy-Çobançeşme, a car crashed into the road of BRT, while 3 was injured in the accident, the driver lost his life. Unfortunately, 3 week ago, as in our statement after the disaster in Acımbadem, since the launch of the metrobus line 2007 our warnings have been ignored by the authorities, the day after the accident is even more.

Dear press workers;
As we mentioned in our previous remarks, Istanbul is the way to produce permanent solutions for urban transportation problems; long-term planning and harmonization between all modes of transportation and railway and maritime transport is to give weight. However, despite all our warnings, most of Istanbul's city transportation is highway transportation. According to IETT's 2015 data, when we look at the distribution of daily passengers in transportation networks; we see that the highway is% 77, the railroad is% 18 and sea transportation is% 5. The Metrobus has a significant share in road transport with the number of passengers approaching 1 million per day. Unfortunately, since the 2007, Istanbulites have been doomed to an outdated transportation system for European countries in their miniature scale cities.
This necessitates the implementation of an urban transportation policy in the long term, which implies the importance of the measures to be taken in order to prevent the short-term metrobus accidents. With minor revisions, instead of vehicles with bellows buses, instead of vehicles with a BRT, the reverse direction should be removed, so that head-on collisions should be avoided in case of possible accidents. If this cannot be done in the short term, the barriers separating the Metrobüs road in the other way should be seriously strengthened and the vehicles should not be entered into the metrobus road or metrobus flowing traffic. For this purpose, iyer Energy Damper and Router ön Barriers should be used.
Dear press workers;
The indispensability of providing security in traffic is to increase public audit. As the MMO Istanbul Branch, which has been struggling for the benefit of public benefit and free, safe transportation; once again we are ready for all kinds of tasks. Rantian who ignores human life, we invite the authorities to end the market understanding, to listen to the professional chambers that have sufficient knowledge to solve the problems of urban transportation.
