The tram, which has been among the election promises of Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality for years, will finally start its trips next week after years.
Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Secretary General Tahir Büyükakın also informed about the Izmit City Center Traffic Circulation Plan, which will be implemented in Kocaeli yesterday, and stated that the tram will start trips as of next week.
Büyükakın for the tram that will pass through many points of the city center did not neglect to warn the Izmit.
Büyükakın stated that the city is not accustomed to the tram.
Tahir Büyükakın said, “I want to warn all our drivers and citizens. Our city is not used to the tram.
The vehicle is hard to stop at 40 tons. There should be no pedestrian passage from places that are not on the tram route. We now put eggs on the side of the roads. If vehicles start to enter the area just because they are being passed over, we will have to cover the area with bigger barriers. " said.
A radical change will be made as of next Monday in order to solve the most intense traffic problems in Izmit. Of course, as of next Friday, the tram will also start its journeys on the streets.
Citizens and drivers are being warned, but after the tram, traffic changes will be seen in the next week we will wait and see how.
