Eskişehir Metropolitan Municipality starts the ropeway project which will ease transportation in the city and will also affect tourism positively.
Eskişehir Metropolitan Municipality is implementing a ropeway project that will facilitate transportation in the city and also affect tourism. The new ropeway system will be installed between the Eskişehir Çankaya Mahallesi and Odunpazarı with a distance of 2 thousand 100 meters and will provide fast and comfortable transportation between the two regions.
Expressing that as the Metropolitan Municipality, they have taken important steps in the improvement of urban public transportation systems since 1999, Eskişehir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Prof. Dr. Yılmaz Büyükerşen said that with the cable car project, a new ring will be added to public transportation in Eskişehir. Talking about this improvement and modernization period, including the tram project, Büyükerşen said, “First of all, we have introduced a 5 age limit for the private public buses that are in use. We suggested medium-size buses instead of large-size buses. Thus, in the first place, Eskişehir residents started to travel with more modern buses. Due to the deep damage caused by the 1999 earthquake in our country, we could only start our tram project at the end of 2001, at the beginning of 2002. We put it into service in December 2004. Thus, the residents of Eskişehir had the opportunity to travel with extremely comfortable vehicles, which are not really available in all modern European cities. The largest of the tram system kazanOne of the implications was the significant reduction in vehicle density in the city centre. During this period, we also carried out a large project on Porsuk. The floor of Porsuk was cleaned as much as possible, its surroundings were arranged, and the bridges were renewed. It has been made accessible by boats and gondolas. Now we will implement the cable car project. As a result, together with the modernization of public buses, the tram project and the journey on Porsuk, the Cable Car Project will both make a significant contribution to tourism and will come to life as a new alternative in the field of public transportation.” said.
2016 will be put into operation at the end
In the 2014, the project was carried out by Osmangazi University lecturers and 2015 stated that the decision was taken in the Municipal Council in March. Access to this area is only possible through the cable car. The most important reason for choosing between Çankaya Mahallesi-Odunpazarı is the difference of 2 meters between the 131 station and this is a very suitable height for the installation of the cable car line. It may be possible to extend the line to the vicinity of Ihlamurkent in line with the need. İhtiyaç
Büyükerşen pointed out that the ticketing would be done by Eskart on the standard tariff and said, durak Our citizens will be able to reach the tram easily at both stops and go to their destination more easily. The distance between the two stops will be only 6 minutes. 2 passenger 500 wagon in the system with the capacity of hourly 8 thousand 36 passengers will work continuously. With a cost of about 7 million Euros, the 14 will be sewn directly to stretch the lines. We are planning to put the project into operation at the end of 2016 under the coordination of Transportation Planning Department, but since the area where the works will be carried out is a historical region, the protection boards will be a factor in the progress of the project.
