Historic Derbent Train Station, which will be held in May and is expected to open at the beginning of June, was at the end of October after a delay of months. An explanation as to whether the necessary procedures for opening the station has been completed has not been made yet.
Kocaeli Barış NewspaperOguzhan Aktas, according to the news; Tarihi Historical Derbent Railway Station in Kartepe was closed between May and 2-18 within the scope of the ongoing signaling project between Köseköy and Pamukova by the General Directorate of State Railways. Railways General Directorate, announced that the station will open towards the end of May. However, 4 didn't stop working at the train station. Derbent District Headman Erdal Baş said that the station will be operational in late October or early November. Even though we crossed the middle of October, it was not yet clear whether the station would be opened.
STATION FROM 1800
The historical station, which started to serve since the years of 1800, was shut down in 2014 due to YHT studies and could not serve. After the completion of the High Speed Train (YHT) project, the station started to operate again and this time the 16 log was closed for signaling work and improvement, but could not be opened at the desired date in the intervening time. Regarding the issue, Erdal Baş and Derbent residents, who are organizing press releases, are trying to solve their grievances.
SPANISH COMPANY DOES WORK
We have demonstrated our reaction many times. Our deputy Haydar Akar paid close attention to the issue and met with TCDD General Directorate. The last reported date for us is October or November. It was said that the signaling shortage would normally be finished in 16 days. This is done by a Spanish company. They said that this study should definitely be done because there is a risk of collision with YHT. We now want our grievance remedied. ”
