Sanliurfa Metropolitan Municipality is preparing for the opening of the Trambus project will damage the historical texture of the city, indicating that the ŞPO Urfa Branch Chairman Mehmet Selim Açar, instead of cheaper and under the master plan in the framework of the system of havaray said.

The first stage of the Trambus project, which was introduced by the Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality at 30 June 2017, was final. 4 is the first stage of the project planned as a stage 7 bin 736 meters long public transport center with the cross between museums. The 2, 3 and 4 stages of the project are ongoing.


In the last 5 year, the population has increased by 25 rate. In order to overcome the transportation problem in Urfa, the municipality is expected to open the first stage of the project in the coming days. The historical and old regions of Abide, Balıklıgöl, Historical Hanlar region, Urfa Museum, Divanyolu Street, Kapaklı Pasajı and Atatürk Bulvarı routes, where the Trambüs line will pass, are worried by the environmental organizations.

The view of NGOs was not consulted

Some of the routes will pass through the Tambus line of the 2'in degree and narrow roads on some routes rather than relieve the traffic rather than to make the experts advocate, the municipality of experts and the city without resorting to the opinion of non-governmental organizations such a project has signed the said.


Before this kind of projects related to urban transportation should be done before the city said that the master plan of the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) Chamber of City Planners Urfa Branch President Mehmet Selim Açar, transportation master plan can not be in the form of such projects drew attention to the possibility of staying in the air. Expressing that they have repeatedly warned the Metropolitan Municipality, Açar stated that this system was first used in Berlin in 1882, but it was used in Italy, Germany, France and Central Europe respectively, and the infrastructure of these countries was made suitable for the use of such vehicles. technology gave up many years ago.


first in years xnumx'l in Turkey, Istanbul, Izmir and started to be used in Ankara, xnumx'l year to up Open voicing use of this technology, after xnumx'l year, which cause accidents in Turkey because it disrupted traffic and slow he also gave up this technology. Expressing that the project implemented by the Metropolitan Municipality is not a new project, Açar said that it is not understandable that the technology offered to the public by the whole world is not understandable and said, ın We insist that this system is not suitable for the narrow, complex streets and historical texture of Urfa. No one wants to go unfair, but we would love to leave the heart for this city. However, time will justify us and this project will lead to suicide of city traffic. This system will not work in Urfa. It should be replaced by different systems, Yer he said.


On the other hand, adding that the transportation master plan of the city is new, Mr. Önar stated that if the rail system will be constructed within the scope of the plan, the planned rail system infrastructure is not left and this will cause other problems in the future. Inda I think that these wires should not be in the historical areas of the city, ı he said. Inda I think that the stops and the electrical wires drawn in the center of Urfa will both disrupt the aesthetics of the city and close the historical texture of the city. There are projects that will not harm the historical texture of the city. Instead of the Trambus, we will foresee both the cheaper and the historical system of the city and the Havaray system to be built within the framework of the transportation master plan. Tr
