The villagers' YHT rebellion

YHT rebellion of villagers Forbidden underpass, overpass forbidden, are we going to fly: Konya-Ankara High Speed ​​Train (YHT) line, some villages in the livestock and farming people in the region has deviated from the fields and pastures.

The villagers have been able to pass neither animals nor work machines to the other side of the rails for about 7 years due to negligence in the underpass and overpasses of YHT. The passage was banned because the underpass, which was made for the villagers to pass their animals on the other side of the rails, returned to the pond after it filled with water. The overpasses, on the other hand, were not in conformity with the tender specifications and were narrower than the standards. That's why construction machines cannot use the overpass. Local people stated that passing animals through the overpasses is prohibited under the traffic laws, and that there are no sidewalks for pedestrians and said, “Citizens can use neither underpass nor overpass. We have been subjected to such a deadlock. How are we going to cross, will we fly? ” she asks.

YHT's Ankara-Konya line passes through the important agricultural and livestock areas of the country. Over and underpasses were built in order to affect the economic activities and living conditions of the local people in the region in a minimum level. However, these passages are faulty and they cannot meet the needs of the people because they are deflated. For this reason, serious problems emerged especially in agriculture and livestock activities.

Failure to comply with the standards determined in the underpasses and overpasses made to the YHT line made the local people victimized. As a result of the passage of the train line from Sarıkaya, Çayırbaşı and Örnek villages in the district of Kadınhanı of Konya, on the one hand settlements and farmer's fields and pastures remained. The overpass constructed to connect the villagers with their districts and fields was made much narrower than the specified standards. For this reason, the local people cannot transfer their construction machines to their fields on the other side of the line. Since the overpass is almost steep like a ramp, traffic accidents happen from time to time because vehicles cannot recognize vehicles or animals coming from the opposite direction. The underpasses for the passage of animals are filled with meters of water. The villagers, who have not left a door that has not been knocked over for years, are telling that they could not get any results.

The village people, Mechanical Engineer Mehmet Akbaş, explains that although the legal rights for the overpass to the village are 11,5 meters, an overpass is 8 meters wide. Akbaş said, “There are 33 overpasses between Konya and Ankara. Some of them were built as 11.5 meters and some as 8 meters. The width of the bridge built in our village is 7.5 meters. We cannot take the measurements of the bridge from our State Railways to our village. No answer. "I have not taken over any overpass from the contractor," the officials at the State Railways told me. The reason for this is that the overpasses do not meet the standards. Since our bridge is adjacent to the residential area, there must also be a pedestrian crossing on the bridge, but it has not been done. Our legal right in underpasses is 7 meters, but the underpass to our village is 5 meters. There are 64 underpasses between Ankara and Konya. It is not clear how many meters these payments were made to the contractor-contractor. We do not know. There is also a collapse in the overpasses. It has become visible. ”

Villagers say that 70 percent of their fields and pastures are on the other side of the railway. Speaking on behalf of the village people, Mehmet Akbaş emphasized that the construction equipment can pass to the other side because the overpasses and underpasses are not made in accordance with the standards, and the animals cannot use them because the underpasses are also filled with water: It is also forbidden to pass animals through the overpasses. There is also no room for pedestrians in the overpass. Gendarmerie can legally punish those who pass animals through the overpass. Citizens can use neither underpass nor overpass. We have been subjected to such a deadlock. We do not know how we will cross, we will fly! ”

Explaining that they demanded to examine whether the underpasses and overpasses are suitable for agricultural enterprises, Akbaş emphasized that the official response given to them from the district directorate was as follows: it was found that the remaining pasture was not used and they had to travel an additional 4 kilometers due to the wide range of modern instruments. It would be appropriate to expand the passages and make additional passages to save time and fuel, to graze the animals and increase the income of the villagers. ”

Sarıkaya Mukhtar Vahattin Baysal, on the other hand, emphasized that the underpass filled with water had to be used by approximately 3 thousand ovine animals. The passage of people and animals is forbidden, ”they hung. This is a lie. The underpass was made for the passage of animals and tractors. This article was attached later. Since we were constantly on the phone saying 'The underpass is full of water', they did not find a solution and hung this plate. ”

The excavation of the YHT construction was forbidden to get rid of the cost, but it was poured into the pastures, causing a serious reduction in the pastures. Old mines, excavations that need to be poured on degraded land that is not accessible to agriculture, have been poured into pastures to avoid transportation costs. The excavation pouring into the pasture of approximately 30 decares in the middle of Sarıkaya Village makes 'Give up this much'. The villagers say that a hill was formed on the pasture in the middle of the village with thousands of tons of excavation.

Since the villagers have to pass the flocks of sheep to the other side of the railway, they throw away the water accumulated in the underpass by their own means. However, it is not possible to reset the water level. When the water level is lowered, the sheep cross over, but this causes the animals to get sick. The shepherds of the village, explaining that the animals passing through the water got wet and sick with the effect of the winter season, said: “When the animals pass through cold water, they get wet and get sick. The animal, which has a lamb in its stomach, throws lamb, and the milk-giving is cut from milk. This underpass has finished our livestock for 4-5 years. ” says.


  1. Here's what's in this news, a typical situation for our country! If we don't know, then at least we should take a look at the outside examples al See the Frankfurt-Cologne line for the German ICE 3.nesli ICE-3 (the most expensive, the most comprehensive), which cost more than the project price. One of the reasons for exceeding the project boundaries is; nature and landscaping. However, within the scope of the project, all of the excavations were determined and implemented, from where they would be and where they would be dumped. So if the project, if any, is not implemented within the scope of the plan. If not, why is it not added later? Is there no control and visa mechanism to take these jobs into the rapes? Or why not? If so, why has it not worked? Why and how did the acceptance mechanism work despite these shortcomings? What kind of admission collateral is that all of it passed through the sieve?
    The question has always been for my mind: why are we doing something while we're doing something, and we're doing it? I wonder if this is a symptom of what they call backwardness, is that the symptom?
    Why do I ask? BECAUSE these and bg questions are the most natural, most legitimate right. As a result, in the opening ceremonies of official institutions, drums, even the money they steal the zurna, come out of our pocket. So my / OUR most natural citizenship, I'm trying to fulfill my duty in the RESEARCH!
