Halil Korkmaz, Deputy Regional Director of TCDD, who attended the Provincial Coordination Board meeting, regarding the train accident that took place in Çorlu and in which 24 people lost their lives, said, “From now on, we need to use meteorology's information about precipitation and temperature rather than forecasting. Just guessing is not enough,” he said. KazanExpressing that the place where the fire is located is far from the settlement, Korkmaz said, “No one reports that there is this much precipitation. From now on, what we will do is to follow the formations, not the data of meteorology as predictions.”

Edirne Provincial Coordination Board was held yesterday at Devecihan Cultural Center under the chairmanship of Deputy Governor Mustafa Karslıoğlu. In the meeting attended by district and district heads, as well as district governors, and many institution representatives, representatives of institutions that provided services throughout the province, such as Highways, DSI, State Railways, Trakya University, Regional Directorate of Foundations, talked about their investments in 2018.

The truth also said that by the end of the year, the 23 kilometer part of the road between Kırklareli and Edirne would be completed, almost half of it was completed.

The Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD) activities and Korkmaz Halil Vice TCDD Regional Director from the podium to tell their projects, 2018. The appropriation of that 8 million and cash of 27 percent of the project, said that while the physical project is 35 percent complete. Korkmaz, who answered the question about the high-speed train, “To be made with EU funds”, said, “When will the train route in Çorlu be opened?” By Deputy Governor Karslıoğlu. He made the following evaluations regarding the accident that occurred on Sunday, 8 July:


“We have a control measurement tool regarding the regional directorate. He concludes by making his own measurement outside of the human element. We use the data of these results. Apart from that, we have a maintenance manager. It controls a distance of 200 kilometers. The controlling person goes with the locomotive once a month and comes with maintenance vehicles other than his own route. Maintenance tools also go to the control, not just maintenance, it does it every 1 days. We have maintenance chefs, and they check the areas they work at a distance of 15 to 30 km. Rather than the lack of control here, this issue is in fact we frequently communicate with meteorology. Even in this period, we were trying to make rail measurements related to air warming. We had difficulties in bending the road, which is called as a road overflow due to the overheating of the air, to the right and left, and we were working with meteorology about this. After that, we need to use information about precipitation and heat rather than weather forecast. Because only guess is not enough for us.


The point here is not to follow the forecast, but to drop 28 kilograms of precipitation per square meter in about half an hour, and this precipitation is outside of the settlement. Generally, we receive phone calls from the villages about such matters, saying 'there is a flood on the road or there is a flood coming'. We also check. But this kazanThe place where the rain is unfortunately far from the settlement is not reported by anyone that it rains so much. There is precipitation in a narrow area, and there is no precipitation in a very large area. It happens in a very short time, we got there right after the incident. When we reached the island, there was 8/1th of the water in the culvert. We were at the scene 1,5 hours after the incident. Our vent is 1,5 meters wide and 2 meters high, and such incidents have never been encountered in 10 years of going back until today. Therefore, we evaluate the results from DSI, in places with high flow rates. The issue here is the non-use of meteorological data rather than control. Because there are 11 trains passing by, after coming to Uzunköprü, the train is on its way back. In this period, we do not receive any notice from any train, because there is no precipitation. From now on, what we will do is not to predict the data of meteorology, but to follow the formations.”
