In growing cities… Moreover, the traffic problem is an inevitable reality of daily life in cities like Bursa, which grow at an abnormal speed in an unplanned and uncontrolled manner.
New roads and crossroads with bridges are constantly being built in Bursa, existing roads are being expanded, but some kind of radical solution cannot be found.
We asked Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl, who has worked in the Highways for years, took responsibility as the Site Chief in the construction of important intercity roads and is a true road and transportation expert.
Bingöl, who is the head of the Bursa Branch Transportation Commission of the Chamber of Civil Engineers and pondered the solutions of the transportation problem, first made the following determination in the Every Angle program we hosted on Olay TV:
“In fact, it's not just Bursa. We are a country experiencing difficulties in the implementation of the master plan. Either we don't have a plan, or we have a plan, but we have problems at the point of alignment. ”
He pointed out:
“In addition to the increase in population due to migration, the increase in the number of vehicles and inadequacies in alternative roads, we feel the burden of transportation and traffic more in our daily lives.”
At this point..
He drew attention to the fact that the roads under the responsibility of the Metropolitan Municipality increased 10 times as a result of the Tümşehir application and gave striking numbers:
“While the number of vehicles in 2011 in Bursa was around 575 thousand, 2018 reached 876 thousand 920 in 53. 2007 increase in percentage is a terrible figure. 2 million 439 million 25 thousand people 3 million percent increase in XNUMX million.
He pointed out that the number of vehicles increased more than the population and said:
Hep We always do our calculations according to the means. Yet the traffic problem is not a reason but a result. The result of what? It is the result of unplanned urbanization, rapid population growth and priority given to private vehicles. ”
"Moreover; it is the result of not being preferred to public transportation, lack of traffic culture, compliance with the rules, failures in the control point, all of these. ”
Transit road, 30 was avenue in the year
Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl reminded us of a striking example of the traffic-road relationship in Bursa:
Ankara Our Ankara-Izmir road crossing the city from east to west was built as a transit road like the ring road feature 30 years ago, but now it has become a street-class road in the city. ”
He points out:
“On this road, underpasses called bat-exit were made to speed up transportation. We liked to pass from below without waiting for the lights at the intersections, but that solution didn't take long.
Lane increase means vehicle increase, lane increase means lane increase
The question is: How is transportation comfortable in Bursa, where the number of vehicles increases more than the population?
Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl, Head of the İMO Transportation Commission, gave a clear answer:
“As the number of cars increases, the tendency to expand existing roads increases. Such a demand comes, and the local authorities seek to solve it. ”
“This has no consequence. So you can't get a rotary result like a boomerang, ”he said and suggested:
Iz What we need to do is create an improved public transport system that is less dependent on the private vehicle. This would be a rail or rubber wheeled system, even the minibus is public transport. ”
His critique is:
“When we look at İzmir and Ankara roads at peak times, the number of people in the vehicles is one. We only drive with the driver. This is reflected in traffic. "
Looks like this:
“Lane increase increases the number of vehicles and increase in the number of vehicles increases the number of lanes. 2-3 would be years of comfort, but again the same hardship. Even if you increase the number of lanes to 20, traffic is stuck again after a while. ”
Private vehicle transportation should not be encouraging
As a society, we love to get used to cars. They are roads, we see that those who come to Kültürpark for a walk in the morning bring their vehicles to the lakeside and park them. Even at a picnic, we dock our vehicle to the edge of the table.
Transportation expert M. Tözün Bingöl says what should happen:
Alesef Unfortunately we were used to driving everywhere. Then it is necessary to remove the incentive to transport vehicles within the city. The traffic culture dependent on the private vehicle should change. ”
The most effective and least damaging rail system in urban transportation
Civil Engineer M. Tözün Bingöl, who is the Chairman of the Transportation Commission of İMO, has been traveling as a Highwayman for years. However, it advocates rail systems in urban public transport.
He explained why he thought this way in his Every Angle program on Olay Television:
“First, the rail system is the least harmful to the environment. In addition, the transport capacity is higher than other types of public transport. ”
At this point…
He reminded that rail systems are classified as trams, light rail systems and metro and clarified the following point:
Var There is a wrong perception not only in Bursa but in our country. We define the underground system as subway. However, both light rail systems and trams can go underground. ”
“Main priority carrying capacity. The ideal time is 2 per minute, 1 per minute. In contrast, subways and light rail systems typically run between 3 and 10 minutes, with trams running slightly wider. ”
First metro, then urbanization
A different method is followed in terms of transportation and urban planning in cities such as London and Moscow, which have the world's most famous subways.
M. Tözün Bingöl explained it as well:
“First they take the metro line. Then they make their urbanization plans according to this transportation. In our case, we first create a population density in one place, and then we search for light rail or rubber wheel system to solve the transportation there. So we do the opposite.
