Trams in Izmir

It is wrong to pass the tram on the shore in Izmir: Hasan Topal, the Head of the Izmir Branch of the Chamber of Architects, wants urban planning instead of projects for the development of Izmir
Hasan Topal, the Izmir Branch President of the Chamber of Architects of İzmir, defends İzmir city plans with scientific facts. Topal complains that, although he is at the head of a room that produces many projects for the city's problems, he has not consulted the decision-makers in the projects to be produced for the city. Topal, politicians to the site, 'parties, managers should sit with city plans instead of projects under the seats,' he says.
Karşıyaka Goztepe tramway
As the Izmir Chamber of Architects, you propose transportation as one of the essentials of urban transformation. Some projects have started in this direction. One of them is the tram… Karşıyaka and how do you interpret the tram project planned for Göztepe?
We are willing to make all discussions in the city through urban plans. You will not know how it affects another project unless it is viewed from the planning axis. It is necessary to look at the planned tram lines from the axis of İzmir Transportation Plan. The Izmir Transport Plan (IUP) covers the next 15-20 of this city. IUP rail systems have the strategy of developing light rail systems and sea transportation and metron. Since the tram is the proposal of the IUP, we cannot say that it is in principle wrong. However, we can see that there are some difficulties in determining the areas of the project in the space ie the transit routes. Some warnings are also making time from time to time. For example, Izmir is a city without green. That's why we call the tram route without destroying the green. Regardless of the type of tree in the small number of trees, project them without cutting.
All the city centers use the same route of traffic as the tram. You have to get this culture. You cannot divide traffic in the center. Therefore, you do not need to cut those trees if you get this culture. The corridors with transportation requests should be determined. It is understood that the route detection from the complaints is not correct. There is no movement in Alsancak and Konak yet. We had proposed Mithatpaşa in the discussions on Mustafa Kemal Beach Boulevard. But that process has passed. According to us, it is not the right choice for the transportation master plan principles.
The transportation plan says strengthening sea transport. So he says multiply the number of scaffolds. If people have already landed on the shore, there is no point in putting a tram there. We are making this criticism. Mithatpasa is a little behind.
I don't know if the tram project has nostalgia. We look at the transport master plan. They're leading the tram to the shore. Karşıyakain. Due to a number of transportation problems… The main plan of transportation has already established a strategy of replicating the scaffolds. In a case of replicated piers, no one would conclude that the tram is very necessary for transportation.
Metro
You have a number of criticisms and suggestions that you need to reproduce subway lines. How should the Metro be organized in order to reach a healthy transportation?
The transportation master plan offers strategies for the development of Izmir subway and İZBAN. It offers metro lines from Üçyol to Buca. Also from Evka 3 to Bornova. There is an extension of İZBAN to Bergama in the north and to Efes in the south. Izmir transportation problem will not be solved without developing rail systems. The main philosophy of the transportation master plan is to bring people from one place to another. So from the residential areas work-education-health areas. Not the cars, but the people ı We are wrong in our vehicle transportation yan If you do not prioritize the tools. If you prioritize people, you do not have to use vehicles already. Rail systems need to be reproduced. Is the engineering subject of rail systems going underground or above ground. You can't pass a subway from a historic neighborhood. Undoubtedly the most healthy underground systems are underground. Of course this is a matter of cost and research.
It's the right strategy to pull the bus from the rail system. But you have to support the rail and ferry ports by bus. People can't wait for half an hour to get off the ferry and wait half an hour from the rail system. Integration is therefore important. This is the integration and integration of transport and transportation types. From subway to İZBAN within five minutes; You should be able to get off at İZBAN and get on the bus in maximum ten minutes. Or you should be able to board. It is not right to say anything without knowing the local government's transport decisions.
