It was claimed that the technical problem that led to a high-speed train accident in Ankara, where 9 people died and 86 were injured, as well as on the Marmaray line in Istanbul.
In the statement made by the Socialist Assembly of Architects and Engineers (TMMM), “Railway transportation should be done by the public, with a central planning. This is not just transportation. Processes such as signalization, road maintenance, vehicle maintenance, repair, periodic control are a whole. We remember the "accelerated train disaster" in Pamukova, where we lost 2004 of our citizens in 41, and the Çorlu disaster in July 2018, where we lost 24 of our citizens.
'THE SAME PROBLEM IS IN MARMARAY'
In the statement, it was stated that the signaling problem leading to the accident was also on the Marmaray line in Istanbul, "We have repeatedly warned about the use of Marmaray, which has been rushed for similar deficiencies, negligence, unsupervision and the election show despite all this."
An expert railway engineer also expressed this claim of TMMM in 2013, when Marmaray was opened.
HIGHER ENGINEER WORKING IN SIGNALIZATION ENGINEERING WAS AWARENED
Rıza Behçet Akcan, who was retired from the 12-year Signaling and Communication Systems Expert Chief Engineering of the Marmaray Project in 2008, warned about the life threats in the project, just like the high-speed train project, the Marmaray, which was unfinished by the AKP government by turning it into an election material. He made critical warnings for his project.
'SERIOUS COLLISIONS INVITE'
High Engineer Akcan stated that due to this division, the signaling and control center could not work properly and invitation to serious collisions.
'TRAINS ARE NOT WATCHED'
Stating that the Automatic Train Control (ATC) system, which would be responsible for the overall control of the system at that time, was not present in the project, Akcan said, "The trains will not be known how and where, how fast, the presence of an emergency will be monitored both visually and audibly."
'A FAULT RESULTED WITH DISASTER'
Akcan, especially in the tube tunnel, on the Asian side of the 3, on the European side of the 11 km in the total length of a train in the 14 km-length tunnel would lead to a complete catastrophe.
