Since the project phase of the line between the City Square and Terminal, the experts have been offering underground rail and underground light rail (HRS) proposals.
In the project with a total length of 9,4 and 11 station, the construction stopped and the renewal of the tender was reiterated.
In yesterday's article, I explained Saker's suggestion and said, 'I have had the opportunity to turn the project that has been wrong since the beginning to HRS. Saker, 'If the conversion is done as a tram after a very short period of inactivity capacity will not be enough and the money will be wasted' he said.
The article came to support Saker's proposal.
A technocrat who follows the project closely from the first day, emphasizing that the current system is not different from the light rail system, said that the tram's passenger capacity and operating speed are the same.
So, 'Is it easy to return to HRS?' We asked diye
The only difference is that the HRSs are high-based. Trams are low. The purpose of this is to ensure that the vehicles coming from the Terminal are connected to the existing T1 line. In other words, some vehicles will be connected to the old statue tour. If you want to convert to HRS, the only cost for manufacturing is to upgrade the platforms in the stations. Since transformers and electronic control system are not done yet, the conversion can be easily achieved.
12 units were ordered when the project was started. These are complete. Some of them continue to work on the old line. They are the kind of vehicles that can be sold easily if there is excess. Because it was made by European standards. There may also be no need to sell. Because the Transport Master Plan in the new tram lines can be evaluated for.
Experts say so.
Metropolitan Municipality's contract for the contractor 19 will be completed in January and the line will be renewed. Let's see what direction will the city administrators choose?
