Marmaray is the safest structure in a possible earthquake

Marmaray is the safest structure in the earthquake: Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Binali Yıldırım, 23 On the morning of October, when Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his accompanying delegation entered Pristina (ANA) which took them to ANA, they first moved to the section where the journalists were with the Prime Ministry team.
I talked to Minister Yıldırım about the tour I did with the board chairman of the Anel Group, Ridvan Celikel, board members Merve Sirin Celikel, Bulent Batukan and Cahit Gumus.
- I've traveled the Marmaray Tunnel recently.
- I'm aware that you're traveling with one of the subcontractors while the original owner is standing. We made a note of it.
Then he said that he was upset by some of the allegations about Marmaray's security:
- Once the director of Boğaziçi University Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute. Mustafa Erdik and his team have a report. The Marmaray Tunnel was the “safest building inde in the possible Marmara earthquake.
He pointed out the location of the tunnel according to the fault line in Marmara:
- Marmaray Tunnel, parallel to the fault line and horizontal structure. Therefore, there is no strong oscillation. God forbid, if there is an earthquake of magnitude 9-10, then the risk of sealing in the section under the sea may come into question. There is also preparation for such a disaster scenario.
- What kind of preparation?
- In case of risk, closing doors on both sides of the tunnel will be activated. In case of leakage of water in the environment until the door is activated, its release will take place instantly.
I recalled the presentation of Yıldırım's presentation on the construction site in Üsküdar:
- One of the hatches will be closed in the guillotine. The other side will come out in the door format. The closing direction of this door was also planned to move along with the water. That is, it will be able to close immediately as it will move in the same direction as the strong pressure from the water.
Minister Yıldırım noted that the Marmaray Project covers the 13.6 kilometer section between the Ayrılık Çeşmesi and Kazlıçeşme stations:
- Completion of the E & M systems (signaling, telecommunication, SCADA, traction power, automatic ticket system, etc.) of the department to be opened in October, and the tests were carried out. TUV-SUD was commissioned for the safety of the line. Certification studies will be completed before the opening.
Controls emphasized Asian Consult:
- The signal system called CBTC (Communication Based Train Control) was used in Marmaray. ATP (Automatic Train Protection), ATC (Automatic Train Control), ATO (Automatic Train Operation) and ATS (Automatic Train Operation) systems were fully functional and tested in the signal system.
He emphasized that the control center is located at the Üsküdar Station site:
- The control center, which operates completely independently, has the necessary safety. In addition, emergency locomotives will be kept separately at Kazlıçeşme and Haydarpaşa side. Immediate immediate access.
When the ANA plane was moving, it ended with the following call:
- Do not worry about citizens Marmaray before full opening. Don't confuse the citizen.
When the Minister Yıldırım came to the front, I returned to the message that the technical team of Anel Group gave when we stopped at the deepest point of the tunnel:
- It will be one of the safest points in the Marmara earthquake.
No matter how safe it is, is it possible to live any risk just in the depths of Marmara and to be cool?
Hopefully all risky situations for the Marmaray Tunnel will only remain in the scenario İn
Personnel services get up in two years
Binali Yildirim, Minister of Transport, Communications and Maritime, pointed out that the traffic was more stuck during service hours of service vehicles in Istanbul:
- In a year or two, you need to finish the service car.
- How are the kids going to their school?
- I don't mean school services, but personnel services. We will have made significant progress in public transportation with the introduction of Marmaray. Employees are now increasingly used to public transportation vehicles.
