MEETING WILL DIRECT THE WORKS
Stating that the 'Trabzon Master Plan' meeting is not yet in the first stage of operation, Şen said, “We have been expressing the transportation master planning in Trabzon for 10 years. Since it is the first meeting, it is not possible to make clear decisions. This is a meeting that shows the direction of the study. It is necessary to look and work in a holistic manner by taking into account the international connection of Trabzon, which includes regional settlements and influences in the region. ” he spoke.
NO NEW TERMINAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN
Saying that the transportation plan is wrong after the project is done, Şen said, “The issues related to transportation are very important when deciding on something in this city. Transportation selection criteria may also change. The new terminal is a good example. President Zorluoğlu disagrees with this. Even if the location of the terminal is correct, there should be a transportation plan. We are one of the main stakeholders of this study. We will meet with the Metropolitan. ” explained in the form.
ZONING PLAN OF TRABZON 2040 TRANSPORT PLAN FOR 2035
Expressing that the transportation plan is integrated with the development plans, Şen said, “2035 year is foreseen for the transportation plan. The transportation network is the zoning plans that enable the development of cities and settlements. Metropolitan Municipality has been working on development plans for about 5-6 years. Zoning plans are integrated with transportation plans. Metropolitan Municipality is making the development plan of Trabzon for 2040. The transportation plan is 2035. If our zoning plans are 2040, if our zoning plans are supported by taking data from the transportation plans, the transportation master plan should also be for 2040. Otherwise, for the remaining 5 years, there will be a problematic period of 5 years without data being produced. said.
LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM DISCUSSIONAL SUBJECT
Mentioning the light rail system, Şen said, “The light rail system was mentioned at the meeting. This requires feasibility. However, there seems to be no such study. It was announced that 4 thousand people traveled in Trabzon. In the light rail system, a journey of 10 people is envisaged at the peak time of the day. However, it can be said that 'it is not important, I can hurt'. It's a controversial issue. If we want to make public investments correctly, it is necessary to choose derivatives for light rail. Because if 10 thousand people cannot be obtained on the light rail, you will return to the tram system. At this stage, this is not even a study. There are more ways. In this study, painful prescriptions and correct things will come out. Don't have the perception that all problems will be solved. ” gave expressions.
