The "Transportation Safety Investigation Center Presidency" and the "Evaluation Committee" affiliated to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure are also doing a very important work that will make a sound from the train in Çorlu. The delegation will make a series of recommendations to TCDD to prevent such accidents from recurring.
The train accident in Çorlu, where 25 people died and 340 injured, became a “lesson”. A series of “transformative” steps will be taken to prevent railways from similar accidents and casualties. In structures such as bridges, culverts and tunnels on the railway lines, systems will be developed to technologically detect the elements that pose "danger" for railway traffic and warn the relevant units in advance. Ground surveys will be carried out at certain intervals regarding the filling under the ballast after the renewal of the superstructure in the railway lines, the construction of which takes up to one hundred years. Floors that have lost their filling feature will be filled with materials suitable for the technique.
A train accident occurred in Çorlu in July last year. 25 people died in the accident, 340 people were injured. The expert report stated that the accident occurred as a result of the discharge between the grille and the rails due to downpour.

A SERIES RECOMMENDED TO TCDD
The ses Directorate of Transport Safety Inspection Center ”and the” Evaluation Committee çok under the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure are working on a very important issue that will bring attention to the accident. The delegation will give a series of recommendations to the TCDD in order not to repeat such accidents. So, what are these?
According to the news of Habertürk, the most important recommendation will be the head of R&D. In structures such as bridges, culverts and tunnels on the railway lines, systems will be developed to technologically perceive the elements that pose a “danger” for railway traffic and to alert the relevant units. R&D work will be done on this subject. Examples in Europe will be examined.
After the renovation of the superstructure on the railway lines, which have been constructed for a hundred years, the ground surveys will be carried out at certain intervals regarding the filling under the ballast. Filled floors will be filled with materials suitable for the technique.
Changes in the structure of climate in Turkey also necessitate the removal of some new steps. In this context, a meteorological engineer will be employed in the regions. If this is not administratively possible, a rapid and effective coordination of the weather will be ensured in cooperation with the General Directorate of Meteorology.
SIMILAR RISK OF ACCIDENT
The TCDD needs to fulfill these recommendations. Thus, the risk of similar accidents will decrease; citizens will travel safer with railways. Couldn't TCDD consider these recommendations? No. TCDD management, in case of a similar accident in the judicial and administrative authorities came into play, "Why did you not take these steps against the warnings?" (Habertürk)
