Diyarbakır Light Rail System Project Discussion: There are debates in Diyarbakır after the rail system project, the dream of the last 20 years, was implemented.
After the HDP Metropolitan Municipality co-mayors were arrested in Diyarbakır, the former district governor of Etmesgut, Cuma Atilla, who was appointed by the Ministry of Interior, spends a lot of time to determine the problems of the city.
The Light Rail System Project, which is planned to be implemented with the intense efforts of the Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Atilla, will start from the Sur district Dağkapı in the first place and end at the Education and Research Hospital in the Kayapınar district and will consist of 14 stops.
The debate about who was the project that started after the rail system project to be built in Diyarbakır was approved in the budget program is considered a vicious controversy. Many citizens who find the talks "This project belongs to HDP mayors, the government did not allow it to be done", which started especially among the public after the reflection of the project in the press, is the important thing is the progress of the city and a modern structure. At this stage, while the government has taken such an important decision, the debate about who was the project is very unwarranted and goes no further than a vicious conflict. After all, since this city is the winner, the rest is empty ”.
With the rail system, it is aimed to have a very important relief in Diyarbakır's traffic. In the rail system where 30 wagons will work at the same time, 3 wagons will stand ready for emergencies. Special insulation will be made around the rails in order not to damage the historical walls.
'Two Steps to Do'
Stating that the rail system will significantly relieve the traffic of the city, Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Cumali Atilla said, “The rail system will be made in two stages. The first stage, 14 kilometers long rail system, will start from Dağkapı and reach the Training and Research Hospital. The second stage will go from Diclekent junction to the direction of 2 houses. Again, within the scope of the transportation master plan, it includes long-term projects such as parking in the city center and traffic problems. The rail system also significantly relieves the city's traffic problem, ”he said.
'Ekinciler Street is Closed to Traffic'
Noting that Ekinciler Street in Yenişehir district will be closed to vehicle traffic within the scope of Diyarbakır transportation master plan project and only rail system will be used, Atilla said, “Again, within the scope of the transportation master plan, we have a project to pedestrianize Ekinciler Street. Only trams will pass through Ekinciler Caddesi. We will clear the area on Ekinciler Caddesi from vehicle traffic. While doing this, we focused on other alternative routes. According to the project, alternative road routes were planned to be one-way. " He spoke in the form.
