SHOULD DETERMINE THE NEW AND LOWEST ROUTES IN THE RAILWAY
Speaking about the Türkoğlu Logistics Center, Parliament Speaker M. Hanefi Öksüz said, Meclis The logistics center is a significant investment. How we can work in the most efficient way, this is a topic that closely concerns our business world. Together we will consult this. Our country should benefit from the railway more. The only way to pull down costs is to shorten our lines. We need to put the private sector into use more and we can pull the costs down. In 1940s, I think it is illogical to repair a railway route built in 30 today. We need to set new and shorter routes. Spending money on the money is the money thrown in the trash except the historical buildings. Brand new routes are the latest system and there are very intelligent systems implemented by our government. He's delivering the bridge, the private sector doing it, getting the money.
Let's split this place into pieces. Let the private sector do it, get money for the train. You get a guarantee from the locomotive then you get the wagon from the private sector. Let the private sector do the transportation, but we can lift this sector. The routes drawn by 60 year-old digging shovels must be completely canceled today. We would like to thank our general manager who wants such investments. Gön
MECHANIC TRAINS BETWEEN TURKOGLU-MERSIN
TCDD Transportation Inc. General Manager Veysi Kurt stated in his speech that they carried out important works with the aim of returning Kahramanmaraş to the old days of railway transportation. Kurt uk With the Baku Tbilisi Kars Railway Line, we connected Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan with Uzbekistan and China to Mersin, Iskenderun, Gaziantep, Turkey, as well as to Kahramanmaras. Turkoglu Logistics Center in the sense of mobilization between the days we are thinking of making a shuttle train between Türkoğlu-Mersin'n.
”KAHRAMANMARAŞ RAILWAY IS USED BY 1929 DEM
. The history of meeting Kahramanmaraş with the railroads dates back to the years 1929 and 1948, Vey said Veysi Kurt. After all, as in Turkey benefiting from Kahramanmaras railway transportation for a long time, unfortunately, this rate has declined steadily in subsequent years. When we look at the present, we see that there is a transportation logistics on 10 million tons especially in Kahramanmaraş, while the sectoral share of the railways is 3-5, namely 300-500 thousand tons. In fact, in our country that are found in the Mersin and Iskenderun almost hand from the most important port city and from all the cities of the world, the transportation to the country on the line both in terms of industrial goods produced in Kahramanmaras, both in terms of port cities it is possible to indicate very poor this rate. Of course, I would like to express my gratitude to the President and Prime Minister at the beginning due to the support our government has given to the railways so far. Indeed, after the years of 2000 Kahramanmaras in the years of establishment of the railway has taken a significant share of the share, but in the later years we said that this ratio is very low.
H RAILWAY FOR ECONOMY AND SOCIAL LIFE İ
Therefore, as in the previous years, a very large railway move was started to benefit from the railways, both at the desired rate and at the deserved rate. As a result of this move, the high-speed train from Ankara to Konya and the Konya-Karaman-Ulukışla-Adana-Osmaniye-Gaziantep-Kahramanmaraş to Habur, which is particularly relevant for Kahramanmaraş, may be the high-speed train and logistics line. we need to express. This railway line is the most important railway. Therefore, we have completed now in Konya-Karaman line, continues the construction of Karaman-Ulukışla line, we spotlight four our Adana-Mersin line, Adana-Toprakkale construction partially continues and tunnel in 10 kilometers long between the garden-Nurdağı of the largest structures still on the corridor construction continues in the same way. The rest of our infrastructure investments, including Kahramanmaraş, continue rapidly.
“WE CONNECTED CHINA TO MARAŞ”
When we look at this first stage and the second stage, if we talk about the most important logistics infrastructure concerning Kahramanmaraş again, Türkoğlu Logistics Center is one of the most important legs of them. When we look at the third leg of our country, it was opened in Baku on October 30, 2017 with the participation of our President, in terms of the products that concern our country, but in terms of the products used by Kahramanmaraş especially in terms of import and export, these products are mainly used in European destinations but in terms of raw materials. With the Tbilisi-Kars Railway Line, we have connected Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and China to Mersin, İskenderun, Gaziantep, west of our country and likewise to Kahramanmaraş. From the opening date to today, we have managed to transport 4 thousand tons of industrialists, our exporters, from 500 kilometers of destinations by rail. One of the reasons why we are actually here today is that we see that the raw materials used by Kahramanmaraş mainly use these destinations, especially construction materials and similar products from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan as exports of cotton, wheat or other agricultural products. Therefore, I would like to state that BTK Line has a very strategic importance for Kahramanmaraş. Hopefully, our goal is to introduce these destinations to our industrialists by holding shorter, face-to-face meetings with our industrialists here, by including this goal in this Logistics Center. TCDD Tasimacilik AS. As, we always wish to use this corridor more in Kahramanmaraş region to meet our trains and railway administrators.
”LINE RAILWAY LINE WILL BE ADDED TO CEMENT AND PAPER FACTORY“
Cement is one of the most important matters concerning Kahramanmaras, paper mills as more raw materials in the construction of factories, the fishbone line using now we've raised in the Council and logistical coordination, this factory our up two of them into the so plant these bones line the nearest station Narlı , Turkoglu, such as our factories will extend the lines of these factories are now in our program. We prepared our feasibility reports and reports on the construction of these lines in these important factories of Kahramanmaraş. We are now in the process of making these lines of fish into two of our three important factories. We have completed the fish line in Çimko, and we are planning to make these operations at a more affordable cost by extending the factory to the railway main network by extending it to the KÇS by removing the intermediate manipulation from the factory.
DE TÜRKOĞLU LOGISTICS CENTER IS A LIBERATED PLACE IN EUROPE “
Türkoğlu Logistics Center 22 was opened in October 2017 with the participation of Ahmet Arslan, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications. In fact, our deputies were also very important in making the logistics center. These logistics centers, and above the average in the world practices in Turkey, a considerable logistic centers. It is built on approximately 800 land area, it is suitable for all kinds of cargo consolidation, holding and other infrastructure. This facility was put into service in October 2017 but since then we have not been able to realize any transportation, logistics activity in this potential. We continued slowly, but as a solution, we immediately discussed what we should do. Transportation Inc. Initially we are planning to do a shuttle train between Türkoğlu-Mersin every day. We're gonna work on the clock. We are working in this way between Kayseri and Mersin, we have three container trains and we have accomplished with the trains 70 of all the industrial enterprises. I hope to do it here, I think it is a must to train at certain hours to do it. In a short period of time, we have prepared a train train for Mersin and Mersin to Turkoglu. We also expect our industrialists to support this train in a short time. We will start this start-up train between Mersin and Türkoğlu every day. Başlangıç
