High Speed Train 300 Mileage Reaches Speed; one of Turkey's high-speed train capable of reaching a maximum speed silently through the entry to the capital Ankara last week. German Siemens-made trains that can reach 300 kilometer speed will not be able to speed 300 kilometer. According to experts, the reason is the lack of maintenance, repair and inspection on the rails due to the lack of personnel. Trade union officials stated that the 300 kilometer line is only in Konya. High speed cannot be made on the route from Istanbul to Eskişehir.
SözcüAccording to the news of Uğur Enç; “The first set of high-speed trains ordered by the General Directorate of TCDD arrived in Ankara last week. High speed trains, some of which are supplied by domestic manufacturers, were manufactured in Germany. 12 train sets will be delivered to Turkey, and on existing high-speed train line SözcüSpeaking to TMMOB Chamber of Mechanical Engineers Yunus Yener emphasizes that the trains coming from Germany are of high quality and that there is no problem with the trains.
'SPEED CANNOT BE MADE BY COMFORT
Yener said, “We know that there is no problem with these trains. These are train sets capable of speeding up to 350 km / h. However, our Konya line is a line according to the speed of 300 km / h. Other lines are 250 km lines. In terms of safety, 250 km / h speed can be made on these 300 km lines and the train set does not go off the road. However, there is a value called passenger comfort acceleration. This comfort momentum can be given, for example, by the fact that the passenger can drink the tea without pouring it from the glass. For this reason, high-speed trains travel at a speed of 250 km / h according to the comfort momentum. ” says.
NATIONAL AND Native
SözcüHüseyin Kaya, the Secretary General of the Railroad Union of Businesses, criticized the purchase of these trains from Germany. The Rock, "Turkey Wagon Industry Co. For a while he was working for the production of national electric trains. A train with a speed of 160 kilometers was built. Later, various changes were made and the speed of the train in question was increased to 225 kilometers. It was announced that it will be on the tracks in 2020. We do not know why this train was not expected to be prepared. ”
LINES NEW, STAFF MISSING
Turkey Wagon Industry Corporation (TÜVASAŞ) is installed in Sakarya Railways Workers' Union, who served as Branch President Cemal Yaman SözcüHe made evaluations about the train project and the high-speed train line. Yaman said that the route between Istanbul and Eskişehir could not be made at high speed. Yaman claims that it is unnecessary to purchase trains that can make 300 kilometers of speed from Germany.
Yaman said: After Eskişehir, an efficient work is emerging at a speed of 250 kilometers. For this reason, trains capable of speeding 300-350 kilometers are unnecessary at this stage. In Sakarya, we produce our domestic and national train with the EMU project. It will be on the tracks next year. It will be able to speed up to 225 kilometers. If we focused on our own production instead of ordering from Germany, we could get better results and speed up.
According to CNN news, Japan is currently testing the fastest train in the world. The test drive of the Shinkansen ALFA-X train is expected to last three years. The train can reach 400 mileage.
