In October, the OHL slowed down the business, citing the cost increase, and the OHL was able to perform only on the construction of the 2014 road from Gebze Pendik, except to remove the lines delivered to it.

31 December 2018 will be grown to date (e) The surface lines of the Marmaray Project will be opened for 31 March 2019 local elections before the test and certification process is completed. View Gebze's Full Profile Halkalı We consider it a duty to warn the UDH ministry, the General Directorate of TCDD and the organization of the certification, as the opening of the gap with the deficiencies mentioned below will result in irreparable accidents.
We have seen the consequences of the transportation policies implemented by 2002 since the current government took office.
17 Accelerated train crash in Pamukova, where 2004 died in July 41
* 11 in 2004 August 8 killed a person in the Tavşancıl train accident
* 28 Kutahya train muscle where 2008 died in 9 January
* 27 2009 5 died in the Republic Express accident
8 July 2018 on the 25 people died in Corlu train crash
* 13 December 2018 killed 9 in Ankara YHT train crash
As it is seen, the common point in all of these accidents where more than one passenger died, together with AKP government, is to exclude railway engineering and science for the election period of the institution and to implement the policies of unethical cadre, election and privatization policies.
We are warned that Marmaray is not ready yet !!!!
* The 76 March 1 test was started on 2019 March 10 for the purpose of obtaining certification for 2019 Km (except for the Excavation of Kazlıçeşme), and the opening date of the line was announced to the public as XNUMX March XNUMX.
* 2013 in the 13,6 line in the service when working with the machine workers have enough knowledge and experience, but the new 63 km line slope, platform, signal, scissor places do not have enough knowledge about the way they need to be subject to experience. In order to work in the total 76 km of the Marmaray project, 90 units taken from İş-Kur are assigned to the accidents by assigning them before the training and road experiences are fulfilled. Considering that the profession of the mechanic is a profession which must be done together with the professional technical knowledge and experience, it is foreseen that there will be serious problems.
* Each 6 table must have 7 train traffic control in the OCC control center. While the total number of 42 Train Traffic Controllers should be employed, this number has not been completed yet and other units of the staff named as Train Traffic Controller have been assigned.
* Since both Marmaray trains and mainline trains are expected to be operated on the same line, the signal visibility distance is too short for trains to be operated by ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) system and is insufficient for the braking distance specified by regulations.
* The communication based train control system of the CBTC (Communications Based Train Control), which is the operating system of Marmaray trains, is not yet fully operational.
- OCC Command center display frequently and frequently lost train losses. In other words, trains running on the line do not appear on the Traffic Controller screen from time to time.
*Halkalı, There are no scissor motors in Gebze and some stations with automatic motor scissors.
As a result, before the completion of the tests and personnel trainings determined by the regulations, the technological deficiencies are eliminated, the authorities will be responsible for the political power, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure and the TCDD bureaucrats, as well as the certification body, for the opening of the line to railway traffic by providing the Marmaray qualification certification without addressing the problems we have expressed.
We request that the opening of 10 March 2019, which is announced by posters, for the safety of the employees.
