Dutch metrobus and high-speed train scandal
A few years ago, İETT paid publicly for a time when he paid off millions of Phileas buses in a shady way, paying millions to withdraw from the garage. These buses were Dutch origin. We didn't know that the buses were going to be used so intensively, and our buses put forward pretensions such as not being tested on slopes. I did not find any news that these buses were returned or that the manufacturer received compensation. So, as far as we know, these buses were written as damage to the public budget.
Last month, the Dutch and Belgian agenda was similar to this but with much greater public harm. The subject of the scandal is the fast train project called Fyra. In December, there were discussions between Brussels and Amsterdam, with the normal trains being lifted and only the fast train going. First the old train to go up and down the intermediate stops, what to do for those who use the debate began, but the main bomb exploded with Fyra'nın check out. The train became more ridiculous in the early days with constant problems, but in time, it became clear that the problems were structural rather than superficial. At the beginning of January, flights were suspended and the manufacturer was given time to remedy the problems, but in any case it was clear that the NSW had suffered serious damage from Fyra trains.
The basis of the problem lies in wrong strategic decisions rather than corruption. NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen), who found the 300km / hour high-speed trains used in countries such as France and Germany, are auctioning for an 250km / hour speed train. It's kind of an accelerated train.
However, taking a train that does not exist in the market, of course, presents some risks. The big producers are not willing to develop a new train for a single order, and the Italian manufacturer Finmeccanica, who has made a name for the metro and tram in this environment, says konusunda I do what I do, konusunda but the contract takes in 2004 and is committed to delivering trains as of 2007. In fact, although the producer Finmeccanica was not the best candidate for the job in 2004, it is obvious with the problems with the Danish railroads at that time, but the 400 million-euro contract goes to the Italian company despite criticism because the tender specifications are not well prepared.
As a result, the first Fyra train was only available at the maximum speed of 2009km / s between Amsterdam and Rotterdam at the end of the 160. Currently, the Fyra train is operated in a much more limited and costly way than planned.
