Railways and Transport Planner at Germany Aachen University, which specializes in transportation and rail. Dr. Prof. Dr. Haldor Jochim, Professor of Transportation, Karadeniz Technical University, Construction Department. Dr. Muhammet Vefa Akpınar Haber61 was the guest of TV.
Saying that there has been a railway project to Trabzon for many years, Akpınar said, “If we go back a long time, there is a project drawn in the Ottoman period, especially since the time of Abdulhamid. If you look at Samsun Metropolitan Municipality, they did a very good job. They established a logistics base in Tekkeköy and it has a great return. Logistics bases will become more widespread in Turkey. While it was in Ankara, Izmir and Istanbul, it was established only in Samsun in this region. While choosing these logistics bases, factors such as railway, airway, road and seaway were taken into consideration by the logistics companies. The most important factor is road and rail. The arrival of the railway will make import and export more active. Logistics companies will come and the logistics base to be established will provide employment for 10 to XNUMX thousand people. Incoming products will be cheaper. The railway will be not only the arrival of goods, but also cheap transportation. The railway in Trabzon has been on the agenda for a long time. It hasn't arrived yet. It has its problems, too. Geographical conditions are important. The most important reason for this is the geographical conditions. Of course, there must be demand. There are studies of the State Railways in this regard, but the biggest reason is the budget.” He used his expressions.
Professor Dr. Haldor Jochim said, “There are two questions to bring the railway. How much will that cost? How many people will use it. Trabzon is the biggest shortage of high mountains. It is a very serious obstacle. Çok
How much does a budget need? How much will it earn?
Professor Dr. Muhammet Vefa Akpınar stated that the benefits of the railway are more important than the budget they require and said un We are talking about two different railways. Cargo transportation and light rail system. These are the transition times, the demand of people is important. If the rail system is constantly running and running late, demand decreases. The important thing is the demand. If the rail system is not demanded, it will be damaged. In the long run, the benefits are difficult because of its benefits to the environment and its benefits to the economy. Why not use the light rail system if it is going to be damaged in the short term and go late to the destination. The second one was Bayburt, Gumushane, Erzincan, and I think that my alternative thinking would be more useful if a project like this was done in Georgia from Georgia to Kars. Gümüş
When looking at the Black Sea light rail and passenger transportation is profitable or damage?
Professor Dr. Haldor Jochim Trabzon or Erzurum, considering the cost would be too much and I think it will not bring much profit, erek To compare with other countries, the railway line between Germany or Switzerland, as well as the traffic line significantly reduced people used this line. Hence there is benefit in terms of cost but it might be there in Trabzon but is it worth it? Will there be so much demand? I need to look at these, but I don't look positive. Bunlar
Turkey has made continuous paths. Do you make the railroad with the cost to the highway? Continue construction of the highway?
Professor Dr. Muhammet Vefa Akpınar stated that it is a matter of preference for building roads and railways. P This is a matter of preference. I need to study. People who will use this route, how to use this route should look at it. A large part of the budget is spent on transportation of Turkey. Road maintenance works. Due to the slope you can not make the rail on the same route. It can be done only if it is flat. Our railway in a mountainous region like us requires more tunnels than the viaduct. It cannot take sharp bends and consequently requires more investment. Kes
Professor Dr. Haldor Jochim said that I don't know how much it will cost from the mountains to Trabzon, bak I can't make a precise statement but when we look at the sketchy, the railroad has more benefits than the 3 floor. If a lot of goods go and go, if a lot of people are going to travel in this sense, the railway is definitely useful. It is very useful when looking at the environment. Preference is important. Feasibility studies should be done and the preference should be determined.
How the city traffic problem can be solved. A ropeway or a light rail?
Professor Dr. Haldor Jochim A matter of choice. If you are heading east to the east and people prefer it, this should be a light rail system. Lı People need to ask whether the cable car is a light rail or not. Light rail system can not go to Boztepe. Alternatively, minibuses, buses and cable cars. But if people don't prefer the ropeway, you don't. That should be the easiest place you can reach. Ulaş
People are losing a lot of time in traffic. What would be the most appropriate means of transport?
Professor Dr. Muhammet Vefa Akpinar plan 3 has been working on transportation plan for years. We do a household survey. Where are you going. Which means of transport do you use? He did the survey. When people in Boztepe come out of the house, how many minutes they want to go. How many vehicles are going through how many points. These are important to us. When the light rail arrives, I will see how much of the traffic load will be.
The plan is correct, but the distance between stations is important. After all, first choice should be our preference. Today's a lot of time. Which is why I'd rather take it for me in less time.
If you create squares in the South of Trabzon Square and connect it in a way like a legal boulevard, I think the traffic will be relieved. Lar
When compared with Germany and Trabzon, Trabzon offers a solution for traffic-related solutions.
Professor Dr. Haldor Jochim said that it was difficult to compare Trabzon with a city in Germany. The mountains behind you are in front of the sea hence do not compare it. But if you want to solve the problem in Trabzon, public transport by weight. This can be the most preferable light rail system. " said.
Professor Dr. Muhammet Vefa Akpınar said, Ve It is not only for freight transport. Both underground and above-ground passenger transportation must be. It's just not material meaningful. It will reduce the traffic load and reduce the traffic accidents. “Used the expressions.
Georgian Railway seems more logical in terms of geography and what do you think about it?
prof. Dr. Haldor Jochim said that Georgia could be an alternative, “But Georgia's railways end at the border. But it is necessary to check whether it comes from Erzincan or goes there, or does it go towards Kars from the Georgia route. What will we look for there, what will go here. If one thinks that he will not go much, but there is a potential in terms of goods, the railway is looked at here. Long-term and current demands should be considered. A feasibility study should be done.” said. Jochim “For Trabzon, definitely consider the rail system. I recommend it,” he concluded. – haberxnumx
