Deputy Mayor of Batman Zeki Hedekoğlu stated that TCDD rails that divide the city in two is an opportunity for Batman: tek The only solution to the traffic problem in Batman is the use of TCDD rails. We want to implement the rail system by making use of these rails ”.
Batman Municipality wants to implement a 'light rail' transportation system to ease urban transportation. Deputy Mayor Zeki Hedekoğlu stated that the project is in the process of preparation: “There were even campaigns for the removal of TCDD rails from the city. However, we want to benefit from the rails that divide the city in two to ease transportation. Our project is under preparation. We expect support from all the dynamics of the city for the realization of this project. In Adana, for example, the light rail system was built from scratch. Although there cost about $ 1 billion, the expected interest was not there. In Batman, the project will be realized at a low cost. For this purpose, we requested an appointment from TCDD Malatya 5th Regional Directorate and we want to implement this project. ”
SMART STOPS COMING
Vice President Hedekoğlu, new projects aimed at urban transport also drew attention to the implementation. Hedekoğlu stated that they offer 2 more buses to the service of citizens, 10 of which are bellows. “With the introduction of new buses, we will change the card reading devices in the vehicles. For example, we will make smart stops at certain points. We will reflect on the screen that the bus will arrive after a few minutes of waiting for the bus at the stop. Then we will develop this system. We aim to achieve 80 percent of this project. The discount transportation that we have started for students in the new year is also of great interest. We are trying to settle the monthly subscription system. Since the beginning of January, we carried 13 thousand passengers. ”(Reşat Yiğiz ğ- batmanã§aäÿdaåÿ)
