While the contract was signed with BBR for the project of approximately 9,5 million Euros, the work for the 2-minute series interval between the University and the Carbed was planned in 3 phases, and the work in the field was carried out only between 01.00:06.00 and XNUMX:XNUMX in order to disrupt the existing system.

While the third phase, which covers the area between Small Industry and University, is planned to be put into operation in August, a significant capacity increase has been achieved with the completion of only two phases. Before Phase 1 and Phase 2 are put into operation, between 07:43 - 09:00, there were 16 delayed trips from Novices to the University direction, after these two phases were commissioned, between 07:43 and 09:00 Şehreküstü - Küçük Sanayi With the additional flights operated between the cities, 21 flights were started from the Novices to the direction of the University. Thus, the capacity increase from the novice to the University was 31 percent.
In addition to increasing the number of additional flights to the west direction, there will be additional flights from Küçük Sanayi to Şehreküstü direction during rush hours in the morning. When the number of vehicles is sufficient and the tariff plan is operated for 7,5 minutes, not 6 minutes, 07 trips from the novice to the University will be possible between 43:09 - 00:26. Thus, the capacity increase from novices to the University direction will reach 62 percent. With the completion of the Phase 3 study, the waiting time at the stations will be reduced to 2 minutes.

In the signaling revision work, which will shorten the waiting time at the stations and increase the capacity by 60 percent, the second phase has been completed after the first phase. With the additional flights, a 31 percent increase in capacity has already been achieved. Hopefully, when we finish the third phase in August, we will see that the waiting times have decreased to 2 minutes and the capacity has increased by 60 percent ”.
