It has been reported that the construction of the light rail system, which is stated to cost 250 million TL by the Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality, will begin in 2014.
Within the scope of the transportation master plan, Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality is implementing a light rail system of 14 kilometers in the city. With the light rail system that will cost 250 million liras, it is aimed to create a significant relief in Diyarbakır's traffic. The light rail system, which will consist of 18 stops, will start from Dağkapı in Sur district and end at the Education and Research Hospital in Kayapınar district. The Metropolitan Municipality requested a loan from Il Bank for the project, which is planned to be started in 2014. Explaining that the prepared project is the transportation plan of Diyarbakır until 2025, the transportation planning expert from Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality Transportation Department Planning Office, İskender Demir, said that besides the light rail system, bicycle paths will be built throughout the city. Stating that the rail system will significantly relieve the traffic of the city, Demir said, “The rail system will be made in two stages. The first stage, 14 kilometers long light rail system, will start from Dağkapı and reach the Training and Research Hospital. The construction period is predicted to be 2 years. The second stage will go from Diclekent junction to the direction of 2 houses. As the Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality, a loan meeting with Il Bank continues. We made a 500 million lira loan request. We are waiting for an answer regarding our loan request. The rail system is not only included in the transportation master plan. A bicycle path will be built throughout the city. Again, within the scope of the transportation master plan, it includes long-term projects such as parking in the city center and traffic problems. The project we have prepared is the transportation plan of Diyarbakır until 200. We will implement the transportation master plan in 2025. When we look at the world scale, more integrated systems such as the rail system are established. The rail system also significantly relieves the city's traffic problem, ”he said.
EKİNCİLER STREET WALKING
Demir stated that within the scope of Diyarbakır transportation master plan project, Yenişehir district Ekinciler Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and only rail system will be available, and electric buses will take place in Suriçi region. Demir said, “We also have a pedestrianization project of Ekinciler Street within the scope of the transportation master plan. Only trams will pass on Ekinciler Caddesi. We will clear the area on Ekinciler Caddesi from vehicle traffic. We followed the pedestrianization policy in the project. While doing this, we focused on other alternative routes. According to the project, alternative road routes were planned to be one-way. We had a separate plan for the Suriçi region. Suriçi is the heart of the city. We will cut the traffic in the Suriçi area. We will provide the electric bus ring application, ”he said.
