Stating that the Trambus project, which was prepared for the opening of the Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality, will harm the historical texture of the city, ŞPO Urfa Branch President Mehmet Selim Açar said that they proposed the havaray system instead of a cheaper and master plan.

The first phase of the Trambus project, which was promoted by Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality on June 30, 2017, came to an end. The first phase of the project, which is planned as 4 stages, is between 7 thousand 736 meters long public transportation center and museum district. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th stages of the project are ongoing.


The municipality, which has implemented the Trambus Project to overcome the current transportation problem in Urfa, where the population has increased by 5 percent in the last 25 years, is expected to open the first phase of the project in the coming days. The historical and old regions of the Abide, Balıklıgöl, Historical Inns region, Urfa Museum, Divanyolu Avenue, Kapaklı Pasaji and Atatürk Boulevard where the tram line will pass worries the environmental organizations.


Some of the routes will pass through the Tambus line of the 2'in degree and narrow roads on some routes rather than relieve the traffic rather than to make the experts advocate, the municipality of experts and the city without resorting to the opinion of non-governmental organizations such a project has signed the said.


Before this kind of projects related to urban transportation should be done before the city said that the master plan of the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) Chamber of City Planners Urfa Branch President Mehmet Selim Açar, transportation master plan can not be in the form of such projects drew attention to the possibility of staying in the air. Expressing that they have repeatedly warned the Metropolitan Municipality, Açar stated that this system was first used in Berlin in 1882, but it was used in Italy, Germany, France and Central Europe respectively, and the infrastructure of these countries was made suitable for the use of such vehicles. technology gave up many years ago.


first in the 1960s in Turkey, Istanbul, Izmir and introduced in Ankara 1990s to up Open voicing use of this technology, after the 1990s, which cause an accident, which disrupted traffic and Turkey is slow He also expressed that he gave up this technology. Stating that this project realized by the Metropolitan Municipality is not a new project, Açar stated that it is not understandable that the technology that the world has given up as a service is not understandable, “We insist that this system is not suitable for the narrow, complex streets and historical texture of Urfa. Nobody wants to go unfair, but we want to go wrong with this heart for this city. However, time will justify us and this project will cause suicide of city traffic. This system will not operate in Urfa. He should be replaced by different systems. ”


On the other hand, adding that the transportation master plan of the city is new, Mr. Önar stated that if the rail system will be constructed within the scope of the plan, the planned rail system infrastructure is not left and this will cause other problems in the future. Inda I think that these wires should not be in the historical areas of the city, ı he said. Inda I think that the stops and the electrical wires drawn in the center of Urfa will both disrupt the aesthetics of the city and close the historical texture of the city. There are projects that will not harm the historical texture of the city. Instead of the Trambus, we will foresee both the cheaper and the historical system of the city and the Havaray system to be built within the framework of the transportation master plan. Tr
