Seven years before the accident at the Ankara-Konya high-speed train line, the United Transport Workers Union said, yedi We did not see the certification report of the line. We are concerned about the Ankara-Konya line en but it has been revealed that the government has not made any counter-explanations.
It turned out that he had warned before the opening of the United Transport Workers Union (BTS) regarding the High Speed Train (YHT) line, which caused a disaster by hitting the guide train shortly after departing from Ankara to go to Konya.
In 2011, BTS Secretary General of the period Nazım Karakurt warned about the Ankara-Konya train line, which had not yet started flights at that time. Karakurt, said in a statement at the time, underlined that high-speed train standards must comply with international standards, ki Unfortunately, this Eskişehir line was not done and the planned to be opened at the moment Konya-Ankara high-speed rail line have such concerns. What are these? After all the infrastructure and superstructure has been completed, there is an Independent Certification Board. This board also carries the norms in Europe. These projects should be carried out under the supervision of this board. For example, we do not know whether the high-speed train line to be operated on the Ankara-Konya line was approved by the Independent Certification Board in August. Mes
Emphasizing that if the board does not make a qualification decision for the line to be opened, it may cause problems regarding the missing infrastructure and superstructure, Karakurt noted that TCDD should share the board's report with the public. Underlining that the decisions of the Independent Certification Board are binding for TCDD, Karakurt said, “For example, it was said that the signaling works of the Ankara-Konya line were carried out. However, overpasses of this line are still being built. How is this possible? This line is near the villages. You cannot wire both sides here. Even the decision taken regarding this is not disclosed, ”he said.
