Izmir Metro is still leaking water

İzmir Metro is still leaking water: The water leak, which has not been prevented since İzmir Metro's Üçyol-Üçkuyular line was opened, also caused the rails to rust. Experts stated that precautions should be taken.

It was reported that the puddles on the ground of Fahrettin Altay and Polygon stations, which were put into service in July 2014 on the İzmir Metro Üçyol-Üçkuyular line, pose a serious risk. Hanefi Caner, former head of the Metropolitan Municipality Rail System Department, drew attention to the fact that the 3rd rail system, which is the energy source of the metro, is located on the ground. Caner emphasized that the presence of puddles in the area in question brings great dangers, and said: “There is a terrible 750 volt energy here. Touch the rail on the ground and the 3rd rail at the same time, you will become coal. Water is conductive here. People are forbidden to get on the tracks. But this problem cannot be solved just by saying prohibition. You need to take action. What are those puddles doing there? It seems like a small problem, but when the experts on the subject examine the place in question, it will be understood that the issue is actually more serious. The newly opened areas of the subway are already risky.

Also, when we look at the safety of the tunnel water and rutubeWhen we look at the corrosion that will create tin, rust occurs on the rails. There is a very clear distress here. There is a saying that the wall of moisture washes people. That's where the water goes to the ground. How to keep water on the wall after a while rutubeIf the wall collapses, the situation is the same here. God forbid, I don't want to be there in the event of an earthquake. " The failure of the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality to identify the source of the water leak and fix the problem for 10 months brought to mind the tunnel ruptures during construction and the said lines being closed for 24 hours on January 2015, 4,5 after they were put into service. Although Egeli Sabah announced to the public that there was no fire detection and extinguishing system and that tunnel ruptures occurred during the construction phase, the Üçyol-Üçkuyular line of the subway, which was opened to service, was kept closed for 24 hours on Saturday, January 2015, 4,5. The subway wagons going from Konak to Fahrettin Altay direction were stopped at Göztepe station, station officials announced that a malfunction had occurred on the line and that the wagons had to be emptied.

The absence of an official statement brought to mind the report prepared by the METU Civil Engineering Department, which Egeli Sabah announced to the public before the line was opened and was kept secret by the Metropolitan Municipality at that time. In the report of METU, it was stated that the water pressure was not taken into consideration and that the tunnel ruptures occurred in 2011 and 2012 as a result of the miscalculation of the earthquake load while calculating the tunnel. METU Civil Engineering Department Vice Chair, Assoc. Dr. In his report, Erdem Canbay pointed out that the water pressure was ignored while engineering calculations of the tunnel and the earthquake load was calculated incorrectly. The last two stations, Fahrettin Altay and Poligon, on the Üçyol-Üçkuyular line of the Izmir Metro, which the Metropolitan Municipality laid the foundation for in 2005, were opened despite the shortcomings in July last year. At that time, the statement "we washed the station" was made for the puddles on the ground where the 3rd rail system was located.
