Gaziantep Light Rail System, which was built by Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality, completed its first year in service.
Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Asim Guzelbey, Light Rail storage warehouse in the press conference, the current number of passengers by increasing the number of passengers around 100 thousand said they aim to move.
Xnumx'ınc with Turkey's Gaziantep million 1 400 thousand inhabitants move reminiscent of the great features Guzelbey, said that at the beginning of the most important problems of transport as well as in all the big cities.
Stating that Turkey is not in the world seem like a major problem in many parts of the Guzelbey transport, he said:
Çalış We have done various studies to solve transportation. In the end we moved to public transportation and from public transportation to Light Rail System. As you know, before that we decided on the Light Rail System. In March of 2011, the tram in Gaziantep made its first flight. He has attracted great interest from the public. I didn't expect the people of Gaziantep to pay much attention to the tram. So far, we have 5.5 million passengers in our city. This was only the first stage. In other words, the distance from the university boulevard to the train station is called 1, and so far we carry 2.5 million passengers. After making the Karataş stage, we hope to reach at least 3 times the number of passengers we carry. Karatas is a new residential area. We all know that university students are living. We are experiencing serious problems with the city connection of the Karataş region. Because of some wrong planning before the city of Karatas region is difficult to link. Here we see the solution as a tram. İşte
Stating that they will complete the tram line of the Karataş region at the targeted date, Güzelbey said that his next goal was to run the tram in the Abraham area.
Replying to the questions of journalists Güzelbey, what you're tying the slow tram - the question of the tram at the 31 minutes from the Junction crossing to Station Square said.
Stating that it is possible for the tram to go faster, Güzelbey said, mümkün The tram is in the beginning period. We can increase the speed. It is possible to download this speed to 20 minutes. But in order to avoid problems when crossing the intersections, the importance we attach to human health is currently underway with the Karataş region, and we plan to reduce the speed of the tram to 26 minutes. At the time we started the Karataş line, we intend to remove the intermediate compartments on the tram route. As you know, the interwoven weaves divide the city in two. We are against it all along. However, we had to put the intermediate compartments where the tram would speed up. We see our people get used to it. Together with the new stage, we will remove the partition. It will be possible to accelerate a bit more. Biraz
Güzelbey said that he thanked the people of Gaziantep who supported the tram and their next goal was to solve the transportation problem in a way that would suit the Metropolitan.
After the press conference, Güzelbey, together with the citizens, the collective picture was taken.
