Istanbul Without Traffic Troubles

Without Ray, the traffic suffering of Istanbul does not end. The traffic problem of Istanbul, one of the biggest metropolises in the world, does not stop. The common solution proposal of the experts is to encourage public transportation with the rail system. Istanbul, one of the fastest developing cities in the world, is growing day by day in terms of both population and settlement. However, despite all the measures taken and the proposed solutions, traffic cannot be prevented. In a report released last week by the navigation company TomTom, it turned out that Istanbul, which has 15 million, is the city with the most dense traffic after Moscow, the capital of Russia, with its population of 12 million. We have consulted the experts of why Istanbul has more traffic than many other cities in Europe, how those cities have developed, how they have ranked first despite the 320 km metro line in Moscow and the solutions to be brought to Istanbul.


Professor Dr. Mustafa Ilıcalı (BAU Faculty Member Istanbul Metropolitan President Advisor): The most important reason for the density is the lack of rail system and public transportation. Sea and rail systems make up only 3 percent of transportation. The criterion is human. If they are interested in public transportation, jamming is reduced.

Assoc. Dr. Murat Ergün (ITU Highway Traffic Department Head): Priority should be given to Marmaray. In a rail system, you can carry 70 thousand people in an hour and 1 million people in a day.

Hunting. Sami Güleçyüz (Traffic Inspectors Honorary President of the Association of Turkey): Istanbul traffic is available to be long and thin as a city. 120 km from Gebze to Silivri. Longer. This flow will relax with Marmaray.
