The foundation of the Bursa High Speed Train Line, which will end the dream of the 59 annual rail of Bursa, was laid with a magnificent ceremony on 23 December 2012. The foundation of the main station in the center of Bursa was laid by Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Binali Yıldırım and Minister of Labor and Social Security Faruk Çelik. The line, which is constructed according to the latest High Speed Train (YHT) technology and 75 speedometer, where passenger and freight trains can be operated together, will reduce the travel time between Ankara-Bursa and Bursa-Istanbul to 250 hours 2 minutes.
Bursa-Mudanya Line 1891'da 1953'da closed with a law that was closed and then dismantled with iron networks disconnected from Bursa, experienced the happiness of meeting again by train. Turkey's most important industrial and tourist city of Bursa will provide an important transportation alternative Bursa Bursa High Speed Train Line with the foundation of the main station in the center was laid in a ceremony. Deputy Prime Minister Arınç, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Labor and Social Security Faruk Çelik and many deputies, governors, high judiciary members, local administrators and civil society representatives attended the ceremony, which was carried out on the road to Mudanya.
Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç, who touched on the importance of thanking and commemorating the service provider, and even creating works in his name when necessary, said in his speech the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Binali Yıldırım, who contributed to the YHT's coming to Bursa, and the Minister of Labor and Social Security, Faruk Çelik. started by thanking. Reminding that his interest in railways originated from his late uncle, that his uncle was a maneuver and his life was spent in the station lodgings, Arınç said that he knew the life of the railways closely. Stating that he likes to travel by train most, as a lawyer, Arınç said: “But I am talking about those black trains, trains like the Kurtalan Express. I remembered the times when we reached a ramp, when the train slowed down, when we got off the train and passed the train while walking, with an average speed not exceeding 40 kilometers per hour, which seemed like a lullaby. We saw and knew this as a railway. The train from Izmir and Manisa would arrive in Ankara in exactly 13 hours. After that, we experienced the bus period. But when I went to France in 1991 they said 'We will cross between Paris and Lyon by high speed train'. We had covered the 450 kilometers in 2 hours and 15 minutes. How cozy, quiet, calm and comfortable. When it came to my mind why no such a thing in Turkey. Why do we go from one place to another with the trains on the rails that are still old and cannot speed. Time and time are very precious. "
ROAD ROAD TRANSMISSION IS VERY IMPORTANT
Emphasizing that time is very important today, Arınç said, “A political choice; some of them own the railways and some of them have the roads. But now we see that all over the world, rail transportation is very important as human and freight transportation. Look, two things will be done through YHT. First, human transportation, travel, second, freight transportation. At an average speed of 200 kilometers, people will travel in these trains, but freight will be transported at a speed of 100 kilometers. How valuable this is for Bursa. " At the end of his speech, Bülent Arınç read lines from the poem Necip Fazıl Kısakürek's poem "İstasyon".
THE RAIL OF THE RAIL OF THE RAIL WILL HELD THE YHT
Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Binali Yıldırım stated that Bursa, whose railroad was abolished by law, had its high-speed train with a ceremony. “Yes, you did not hear it wrong, the railway was built between Bursa and Mudanya in the 1890s. But then 59 years ago, this railway was closed and its rails were collected. Yeah now we're doing his accident. But not by the same standard. We are building the high-speed train route to Bursa, built with the most advanced technology in the world. " Yıldırım said that they made this effort to make the people of Bursa forgive. Yıldırım, whose speech was often interrupted by applause, witnessed the capital of the Ottoman, think of a city. Consider a city in Turkey's development, it has led to the development of growth. Imagine a city that has railways around it in Kütahya, Eskişehir, and Istanbul, it does not have a railroad. This was not a good situation for Bursa. " said.
Explaining that the Bursa railroad project was among the promises of 30 years dusted on the shelves in the first days of their appointment, Yıldırım said, “I am a student preparing for university in the year 1972-73. At that time, elections are approaching, promises are increasing. I hear a voice; There will be a speedy railway between Ankara and Istanbul and its duration will be reduced to 2,5 hours. Years pass, the 80's 90's 2000's are coming, 11 governments, 23 ministers change, nothing changes in that project. We have addressed our accumulated problems, one by one, that had been negligent for years. Instead of dodging the problems, instead of sweeping them under the rug, we went over them. We have come to these days by turning problems like mountains into services like mountains. " he spoke.
Lightning last 10 years, 200 billion Turkish Lira transportation in Turkey, voicing communication investment is made, "Let's give examples of Railways. From 1950 to 2003, only 945 kilometers were covered, over 50 years. So what happens per year; 18 kilometers. A brilliant period of railways like this period was from the foundation of the Republic until 1946. Behind the 10th Anniversary March, 4 thousand 500 kilometers were built with the goal that Great Atatürk made the railway a state policy at that time. used the expressions.
10 BILLION INVESTMENT FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS
Pointing out that the length of the railway they have completed in the last 10 years is 1100 kilometers and the railway project they are working on is 3 thousand 500 kilometers, Yıldırım continued as follows: “This is the service that fits for 10 years. The Republic of Turkey has a target capturing it in the first year. For the first time, the share of railways as an initial grant in the budget surpassed the road. The investment we have spent on railways in the last 10 years is 25 billion Turkish Liras. Here is the project; Bursa-Ankara Bursa-Istanbul project. The project has been talked about a lot, there has been a lot of politics on it, but we looked at it, there is no project. It's a job with no project, just a discourse. We sat down, did the project, finished the project, expropriated and finally started the most important part of the 75-kilometer line today. You heard wrong, this is called High Speed Train, this is not a black train. Everyone salutes as this goes. Nobody can get in front of him. It either passes from the top or the bottom. This is the fast train. Safety comes first in high speed trains. We will definitely ensure this safety. Something expensive, not cheap, but let me say something; No matter how expensive, there is nothing more precious than our people. There is nothing more important than Bursa. There is nothing more important than service to Bursa. May it be nice. Everything suits Bursa. Because Bursa produces for the Turkish people, for our country, for our development. We pay Bursa in return for this by building a high-speed train, ring road, highway, divided road, and we will continue to pay. 10 billion 2 million Turkish Liras made to Bursa only by the Ministry of Transport in the last 81 years. The amount of investment made in the previous 10 years is 936 million Turkish Liras. I say at today's prices. "
WE LEVEL THE SMALL TEFEK STONES OF BURSA UNDER THE ROADS
In this part of his speech, reading a part from his poet and writer Ekrem Şama's poem "Bursa Again", Yıldırım said, "You have a Turk," the little stones of Bursa ". We compiled the small stones of Bursa, gathered them, laid them under the high-speed railway, under the divided road, under the highway. We opened your way and opened your fortune. Good luck. " said. Minister Yıldırım gave the good news that the High Speed Train project will also go to Gemlik in the last part of his speech.
2. WITH THE DREAMS OF ABDÜLHAMİT, ATATÜRK'S IDEALS HAVE BEEN
Faruk Çelik, Minister of Labor and Social Security, expressed that Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's ideals were upheld with the dreams of Abdulhamid II. Steel, without distinction, from east to west, south to north, Turkey, stressing that they perform every service rather than just take up understanding, said: "Now we Bursa'd for one of them. We are here under the leadership of Mr. Binali Yıldırım, who aims to transport in every field by air, sea and land under the leadership of our Ministry of Transport. Once upon a time, the marches and folk songs of the black train were sung. 'We built the homeland with iron bars from all over', 'The black train may come, maybe it will not come at all', thank God the black train remained behind. The fast train is coming fast. Very important project. Thanks to everybody for their exertion. We thank everyone with his opposition and power. This project unites Bursa and Ankara. This is a very beautiful thing. However, there are more things to be had. We say that Bursa is getting high speed train. Very soon, we will go to Istanbul in 2 minutes with a gulf crossing. Many investments have been made in Bursa in recent years. There are still projects to be made. "
