Solution to Bursa Traffic Using Rail System in Urban Transportation

use rail system in urban transportation to solve bursa traffic

In growing cities… Moreover, in cities such as Bursa, which grow rapidly at an abnormally unplanned and uncontrolled way, the traffic problem is an inevitable reality of daily life.


In Bursa, new roads and new bridges are constantly being built, existing roads are being expanded, but there is no rooted solution.


We asked M. Tözün Bingöl, Civil Engineer, who has worked in the Highways for many years, has undertaken responsibility as the Construction Supervisor in the construction of important intercity roads.

Same time…

Bingöl, who is the President of the Transportation Commission of the Bursa Branch of the Chamber of Civil Engineers and pondered the transportation problem solutions, made the following determination in every aspect of the program we hosted on Olay Television:

“In fact, it's not just Bursa. We are a country experiencing difficulties in the implementation of the master plan. Either we don't have a plan, or we have a plan, but we have problems at the point of alignment. ”

He pointed out:

“In addition to the increase in population due to migration, the increase in the number of vehicles and inadequacies in alternative roads, we feel the burden of transportation and traffic more in our daily lives.”

At this point..

Metropolitan Municipality pointed out that the roads in the area of ​​responsibility increased by 10 times as a result of the whole city application and gave striking figures:

“While the number of vehicles in 2011 in Bursa was around 575 thousand, 2018 reached 876 thousand 920 in 53. 2007 increase in percentage is a terrible figure. 2 million 439 million 25 thousand people 3 million percent increase in XNUMX million.

He pointed out that the number of vehicles increased more than the population and said:

Hep We always do our calculations according to the means. Yet the traffic problem is not a reason but a result. The result of what? It is the result of unplanned urbanization, rapid population growth and priority given to private vehicles. ”

He added:

"Moreover; it is the result of not being preferred to public transportation, lack of traffic culture, compliance with the rules, failures in the control point, all of these. ”

Transit road, 30 was avenue in the year

A striking example of the traffic-road relationship in Bursa was reminiscent of Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl:

Ankara Our Ankara-Izmir road crossing the city from east to west was built as a transit road like the ring road feature 30 years ago, but now it has become a street-class road in the city. ”

He points out:

“On this road, underpasses called bat-exit were made to speed up transportation. We liked to pass from below without waiting for the lights at the intersections, but that solution didn't take long.

Lane increase means vehicle increase, lane increase means lane increase

The question is: How is transportation easier in Bursa, where the number of vehicles has increased more than the population?

Question ...

İMO Transportation Commission President Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl gave a clear answer:

“As the number of cars increases, the tendency to expand existing roads increases. Such a demand comes, and the local authorities seek to solve it. ”


Tur There is no result. I mean, like the boomerang, you can't have a rotating result, ”he said and suggested:

Iz What we need to do is create an improved public transport system that is less dependent on the private vehicle. This would be a rail or rubber wheeled system, even the minibus is public transport. ”

His critique is:

“When we look at İzmir and Ankara roads at peak hours, the number of people in the vehicles is one. We only drive and drive. This is reflected in traffic. ”

Looks like this:

“Lane increase increases the number of vehicles and increase in the number of vehicles increases the number of lanes. 2-3 would be years of comfort, but again the same hardship. Even if you increase the number of lanes to 20, traffic is stuck again after a while. ”

Private vehicle transportation should not be encouraging

As a society, we love to be car cars. Roads, in the morning for a walk to the lake parked in the park to see the vehicles coming to the culture. Even at a picnic, we are approaching our car to the edge of the table.

M. Tözün Bingöl, a transportation expert, says:

Alesef Unfortunately we were used to driving everywhere. Then it is necessary to remove the incentive to transport vehicles within the city. The traffic culture dependent on the private vehicle should change. ”

The most effective and least damaging rail system in urban transportation

Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl, who is the President of IMO Transportation Commission, made the road as a Karayolcu for years. However, it advocates rail systems in urban public transport.

He explained why he thought of this in every aspect of Olay TV:

“First, the rail system is the least harmful to the environment. In addition, the transport capacity is higher than other types of public transport. ”

At this point…

He reminded that rail systems are classified as tramway, light rail and subway.

Var There is a wrong perception not only in Bursa but in our country. We define the underground system as subway. However, both light rail systems and trams can go underground. ”

He stressed:

“Main priority carrying capacity. The ideal time is 2 per minute, 1 per minute. In contrast, subways and light rail systems typically run between 3 and 10 minutes, with trams running slightly wider. ”

First metro, then urbanization

Cities such as London and Moscow, which have the most famous subways in the world, follow a different method in terms of transportation and urban planning.

Her M. Tözün Bingöl explained:

“First they take the metro line. Then they make their urbanization plans according to this transportation. In our case, we first create a population density in one place, and then we search for light rail or rubber wheel system to solve the transportation there. So we do the opposite.
