The tram stop at the intersection of Sultanahmet and the Grand Bazaar, which is a popular place for tourists, continues to drive the tram and the green lights to the pedestrians.
SözcüAccording to the news of Bora ERDİN from Istanbul, the signaling system on the tramway in Sultanahmet, which is the tourism center of Istanbul, does not work properly. The absence of a fatal accident at the Çemberlitaş tram stop, which invites the accident, is entirely due to luck. 14 months ago, a person died in this stop by being caught under a tram. The tram line coming from Karaköy enters the road used by cars in Sirkeci. At Sultanahmet and Çemberlitaş stops, it intersects with streets that are also open to pedestrian and vehicle traffic. At this point, where the accident was invited, the big problem begins. At the Çemberlitaş stop, the traffic lights on the line connecting the Grand Bazaar to the tramway turn green, while the tram continues on its way.
HE KILLED A PERSON BEFORE THE PAST 14 MONTH
In the last year, an 14 accident occurred at the stop of the Çemberlitaş stop for tens of thousands of tourists. One person died in the last accident that occurred due to the system that passed the tram to the pedestrians at the moment when the green light was on.
