TSRI President Sirri Eren said, biri One of the duties of non-governmental organizations is to create public opinion on issues concerning the city and to contribute to the vision of the city. We organized this meeting in order to exchange information about the railway project which we consider very important in the future of our city and to get information about the subject and the point we have come from, Mustafa Yaylalı, a member of the Railway Platform, who has been voicing this issue since 2010.
I would like to thank Mr. Yaylalı, the chairman of the Chamber of Civil Engineers, for his participation in the board meeting. Investment Island, South Ring Road, Railway City are the projects that we need to do continuous gymnastics in order to fill the future vision of our city. Again for our city, tourism, light rail system, transportation plan issues such as common mind needs to be worked together, thinking will be very useful issues. As TSIAD, we will continue the meetings in which our members will be aware of the problems of Trabzon. In this way, everyone will contribute to the solution of problems on various platforms ”.
Mustafa Yaylalı, a member of Railway Platform who made a presentation to the board of directors of Trabzon-Erzincan about TSIAD, stated that for the first time a freight train departed from China and went to Prague by using Marmaray. “The world is changing. The routes in world trade are being reconstructed. Today China is now planning to reach the Baltic countries.
Trabzon and Kherson are very important ports in this plan. It is clear that 230 km and Trabzon port are the shortest distance to the Black Sea which will insert the main train line passing through Erzincan Erbaş into this plan. Such a mobility will revive the port of Trabzon and may also be a source of new lines and plans with Russia. You need to look at the event through freight transport. Samsun Sarp railway is considered as passenger transportation and high speed train. However, our priority should be to connect to the world market passing by our cargo, not passengers. By rail, Trabzon can be a center again. We must connect to Erzincan and thus connect to the biggest trade line in the world and therefore directly to the world.
This line will be supported by Diyarbakır and GAP products will be accessible to the northern markets. Erzincan Railway is in an important position connecting all axles. Our cities should be planned according to this line and trade volume, and connections should be established with the northern ports of the Black Sea via this large trade line. Arsin Investment Island, which will be an industrial zone based on high technology, should be laid down on the table by establishing the relation of the production to the world and the line we are talking about. When this vision is established, neighboring provinces will also benefit from this situation. Rize, Hopa, Batumi railway will also be formed more economically. ”
TSIAD Chairman Sirri Eren Trabzon-Erzincan Railway platform member Mustafa Yaylalı thanked him for his detailed presentation. The meeting ended after the question and answer session. (xnumxsaat)
