60 Thousand Passengers Passed For 10 Thousand Passengers 50 Thousand Passengers Carry: In the final declaration of the 'Transportation in Growing Cities' workshop conducted by Fırat Development Agency, Ankara and Istanbul subways, which are planned to carry an average of 60-10 passengers per hour, carry an average of 15-XNUMX thousand passengers per hour, it is stated that the targeted productivity is below.
A workshop on 'Transportation in Growing Cities' was held in Elazığ Chamber of Commerce and Industry Meeting Hall by Fırat Development Agency Development Board, headquartered in Malatya.
Chairman of the Board Dr. The workshop, which was managed by İbrahim Gezer, focused on settlements and transportation needs, transportation problems of cities, modern transportation policies, transportation planning processes. The workshop's final declaration, which lasted about 3 hours, outlined important findings on traffic and transportation problems in cities. In the declaration that increased the use of motor vehicles due to the daily economic activities in cities, the density of housing in the cities increased from the environment to the center while the urban road traffic problem became more severe.
In order to solve the traffic problem, local authorities were told that they built tram systems for 7 thousand passengers per hour, light rail for 10 thousand passengers and metro systems for the number of passengers with 15 bin and above.
Due to the traffic problem, especially in some cities in Europe, the city has been paid for entry fee or bicycle transportation systems are applied.
It is used as a parking lot of xnumx's percent of the central streets in many cities in Turkey, the declaration noted that, in this case the traffic caused by the misuse of existing roads that were expressed complaints factors become meaningless.
'In our country, instead of resorting to cheaper and easier measures, local administrations are turning to more expensive and not enough projects, which leads to resource wastage, inefficiency and environmental problems,' the declaration said, 'Rail transportation is becoming more widespread in our country. However, these systems, including the Ankara and İstanbul subways, are operated far below the targeted efficiency and capacity. For example, while Ankara and Istanbul subways are planned for 50-60 thousand passengers per hour, 10-15 works with a thousand capacity. For this reason, it should be given priority to metrobus system where buses are moving in separated lanes instead of systems that require high investment and operating costs in the solution of transportation problems of cities with population less than 1 million. Because 4 times more passengers can be carried by the lane allocation application for buses.
Most of the metro in Turkey has been working with about 10 thousand passengers per hour. However, in the world, rail systems (up to 48 thousand passengers per hour) carrying passengers and much cheaper than rail systems (5 times cheaper) metrobus (rubber wheel bus) systems are available. This result, many cities in the world with Metrobus cost of subway passengers while moving up in Turkey means that we carry are regular buses with passengers subway costs. This application is not feasible ir statements were used.
In many cities in the declaration that the people demanded the same or parallel bus service along with the demands of the rail system, the statement said: 'However, buses and minibuses are not parallel to the rail system in the vertical direction and should feed it. In this sense, the rail system means 'transfer'. In the case of parallel operation of these systems and passenger transport in the same direction, it is not possible to operate the rail system in a profitable manner. Because the passengers need to be transported by the rail system will be carried by other vehicles. Unfortunately, this is the case in many of our cities. Given these drawbacks, the central government may be expected to tend to disallow rail system investments in the future. As a result; In order to solve the transportation problems of our cities more effectively, an integrated system to cover all types of transportation should be established, transportation planning should be considered as an element of all plans related to the city, plans should be prepared by experts who have the capacity to plan and with a participatory approach. In addition, the plans should be binding for everyone, not on the shelf, and to be implemented.
