SYSTEM SAFETY AND SAFETY
Scenarios were prepared against all kinds of negative situations that may occur in the Metro line and simulations were made for these scenarios and solution plans were prepared. With the cameras in the stations, the system is constantly monitored, controlled and controlled by uniformed security personnel.
The system, built with the latest technology, has an interactive (self-adjusting) fire safety system. All equipments used in the construction of the line are selected from high temperature resistant and toxic gas-free materials. In order to ensure safe evacuation of passengers in the event of a fire, there is a smoke control and evacuation system that has been tested according to all scenarios.
The signaling, scissor and vehicle system of the line and storage area is fully automatic and can be operated manually if needed.
The energy supply of the system is made from two different points. If both supply points are disabled, the 15 generators will be activated within seconds and all trains reach the nearest station and can evacuate their passengers. In case the power supply is not provided and the generators are disabled; The lighting system and electronic control systems can be fed through uninterruptible power supplies for 3 hours.
At Kirazlı Station, transfer can be made to M1B Yenikapı - Kirazlı Line. At İkitelli Industrial Station, transfer to the Olympic shuttle company can be made by switching to the other platform area without leaving the system. With this transfer, access to the Greater Istanbul Bus Terminal and the Sur can be provided from the Başakşehir area.
