Pointing out that the decline in rail transport has reached 1 percent, Çakar called for an end to the privatization, fragmentation and liquidation policies in railways.

Ali Ekber Çakar, Chairman of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers of TMMOB, stated in his written statement on the anniversary of the Pamukova Accident, which resulted in the death of 13 people 41 years ago, that the liquidation of the professional and scientific policies that were the cause of the Pamukova Accident on July 22, 2004 still continues. Age is a reliable, stable, country and society need a transportation system that represents the interests of today that Turkey felt more than ever before, but he said that transport policies in the opposite direction.

Drawing attention to the fact that passengers and freight transport have been reversed in railways in the last 60 years, Çakar has decreased from 1950 percent in passenger and 42 percent in freight in 78; He said road transport increased to 1.1 percent in passenger and 4.6 percent in freight.

  • In the entire transport and railways; all privatizations, infrastructure, vehicle, land, facility, operation and real estate, municipalities and third parties should be stopped.
  • Weight should be given to rail transportation in freight and passenger transportation by harmonizing between all modes of transport and railway transportation should be planned in a planned way.
  • In line with the necessary infrastructure, maintenance and renovation works, it should be directed to eski speed rail mal projects on old lines; “fast / accelerated train yeni projects that are not based on new infrastructure and high standard new line construction should be stopped.
  • New rail systems should be integrated with existing transport networks and light rail systems, especially the metro, should be expanded in cities.
  • Disassembling of TCDD, disabling political staff, and dismantling expert staff at all levels should be terminated. Performance based wage ”,“ total quality management göre etc. Applications should be removed.
  • Maintenance-repair shops and all facilities should be re-activated.
  • The TCDD's debit and loss policy should be abandoned.
