Another project that will breathe city traffic is being implemented by Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality. Metropolitan, which offers huge projects that will bring comfort to transportation, to the service of citizens, gives priority to public transportation and brings rail system investments one by one to Kocaeli. In this context, the Metropolitan Municipality is adding the Kuruçeşme tram line to the projects it carries out all over Kocaeli.
PASSED BY THE METROPOLITAN COUNCIL
Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality will make a tender on Monday, September 21, for the Kuruçeşme tram line, which was built at the August Metropolitan Assembly Meeting last week. With the Kuruçeşme Tram Line Construction Work to be made as an E-Tender, transportation from Izmit Bus Station to Kuruçeşme will be faster and more comfortable.
332 METER STEEL TRAMWAY BRIDGE
The tram line to be built between Plajyolu and Kuruçeşme will pass from the Plajyolu stop to the Kuruçeşme junction over the D-100, with a 332-meter steel tram bridge. For going to the current D-100 Istanbul direction, a connection will be provided from Izmit west toll booth office area and Kuruçeşme intersection will be rearranged.
1 STATION 2 PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
812 station and 1 pedestrian bridges will be built for a total of 2 meters of double line. The existing roads on the route where the tram line passes and the West Highway entrance in Izmit-Istanbul direction will be renewed. The displacement of the infrastructures on the route will also be made within the scope of this project. A Transformer center will also be established to provide the energy of the line.
TRAM LINE WILL REACH 23.4 KILOMETERS
With the completion of the Kuruçeşme tram line, the length of the tram line will reach a double line of 10.212 meters. With the 3-kilometer single-line warehouse area, the single line length of the tram will reach 23.4 kilometers. With the Kuruçeşme station, the number of stops will reach 16 and 6 transformer centers will serve with the new construction.
