Metro Statement from IMM: Due to the information errors in the statements of Mr. Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu about the Istanbul Metro, the following explanation was required to inform the public correctly.
CHP Chairman Mr. In his speech at the Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu CHP Group, “Metro was being built in Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir. Istanbul and Ankara Metropolitan Municipalities threw towels in order that I could not make a metro, they could not. The Ministry of Transport took over, it does. Although İzmir's budget is lower, he said 'I will do it'. One third of Istanbul makes Izmir Metro for half the price of Ankara. ” He used his expressions.
In order to inform the public correctly due to information errors in Mr. Kılıçdaroğlu's statements, it was necessary to make the following statement.
Sn Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality In 2004, Kadir Topbaş took 45,1 miles to 13 with 150, which is an XNUMX kilometer, including trams and nostalgic trams.
2004 11 in the 532 district in the year 23 thousand passengers, while today 2 300 million XNUMX thousand passengers are transported by metropolitan areas.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality has made its own budget or long-term low-interest credit, with the exception of the 13,5 kilometer section between Marmaray and Zeytinburnu-Ayrılıkçeşme.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality is currently constructing 71,7 kilometers of metro. Currently 76.9 kilometers and 40.8 kilometers (Havaray-Tram-Finikul) lines have been announced and under construction.
Mr. Kılıçdaroğlu has been with the metro line in Izmir before. Kadıköy- He made some claims by comparing the Eagle subway and these claims were answered many times.
As it can be seen from the records, the promises of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality regarding the metro investments do not reflect the truth. Because, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality has made İzmir Metro, which consists of 2014 stations only 20 kilometers until 17.
The vast majority of rail systems built by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality are subway investments consisting of high-speed wagons that are equipped with the latest technology and can be used without driver.
The line, which was built with the shut-off system in Izmir and which is mostly light metro (tram), is located in Istanbul. Kadıköy- It is not even possible to compare it with the Kartal metro line.
26,2 Mileage Kadıköy-Kartal-Pendik-Tavsantepe Metro is a complete metro line built underground. Passenger carrying capacity is 70 thousand in one direction per hour. The signaling system of this line has been designed and manufactured for driverless use. Also Depot Maintenance area of Turkey were laid underground by constituting its signature.
The 20 kilometer Izmir Metro is a light metro system built with an open closure system and the capacity of carrying passengers in one direction per hour is 45.
In order to make comparisons about the costs of rail system lines, it should be of the same type and evaluated together with the systems they contain.
Other factors affecting the costs of rail system lines include vehicle numbers and properties, station sizes, platform lengths and exit structures, the formation of the lines and stations underground and the depth at which the stations are constructed, the capacity of the warehouses and workshops and the expansion possibilities, the technology and safety standards used, ladder and belt systems and passenger comfort.
When all these criteria are examined, as can be clearly seen from the attached table Kadıköy- It is not possible to compare Kartal Metro and Izmir Metro.
It will be a correct approach to make the İzmir Metro cost comparison with the Topkapı-Sultançiftliği Rail System Line, which is close to the light rail system criteria.
As can be seen from the table below, when compared with İzmir Light Metro and Sultançiftliği Light Metro; The cost of the İzmir Metro per kilometer is about 50 more than a million dollars. The mileage cost of Sultançiftliği Metro is close to 21 million dollars.
