Republican People's Party Karaman Deputy Atty. İsmail Atakan Ünver asked the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure about the damage to the rails as a result of the rain that occurred on the Ankara - Konya High Speed ​​​​Train line recently. Unver, who gave a proposal on the subject; “Is it correct to define this damage as only caused by natural disasters? Do the companies that make this line have no faults? he asked.

Ünver stated in the written question submitted to the Presidency of the Turkish Grand National Assembly upon the request of the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, that a part of the Ankara - Konya High Speed ​​​​Train (YHT) line was damaged as a result of the rainfall on 03.07.2021 and a possible disaster was prevented with the attention of TCDD personnel. reminded the ministry of the train disaster that occurred in Çorlu. Ünver stated that 5 wagons overturned as a result of the slipping of the soil culvert under the rails due to rainfall in Çorlu and that the capacity of the culverts was insufficient in the expert report regarding the accident.

After the train disaster in Çorlu, Ünver stated that the Republican People's Party submitted a research proposal in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey and they demanded the determination of those responsible for the Çorlu train disaster and the determination of the measures to be taken. and that taking the necessary measures has been postponed by the government.

Ünver stated that the damage caused by the rain on the Ankara - Konya YHT line is similar to the reasons that caused the Çorlu train disaster; “Here, the culverts have overflowed and the rails have been flooded. In this event, where the damage caused by precipitation was noticed early and necessary precautions were taken, a possible disaster was prevented thanks to the attention of TCDD personnel. said.

Ünver asked the following questions for Transport and Infrastructure Minister Adil Karaismailoğlu to answer:

    1. Through which institutions or companies are maintenance and inspection works carried out on the train line where the damage occurred?
    2. Which company built the Ankara - Konya High Speed ​​​​Train (YHT) line? Will any action be taken against those responsible for the damage?
    3. In the statements made by the authorities as a result of the post-damage studies, is it correct to define this damage only as a natural disaster? Do the companies that make this line have no faults?
    4. When was the last time the necessary controls were made on the mentioned railway line? How often does your ministry carry out the necessary control and inspection?
    5. What are the studies carried out and planned to be done at the point of detecting possible disruptions that may occur as a result of floods and similar natural disasters in the Ankara - Konya High Speed ​​​​Train (YHT) line?
    6. To what extent does the statement 'heavy precipitation above seasonal normals' expressed by the authorities as the cause of the damage in question overlap with scientific facts? Why was it not foreseen that these and similar natural events could cause disasters? Isn't there an engineering technique to prevent the soil from draining between the culvert and the rail?
    7. While it is very clear that this and similar damages can cause disasters and the pain of the disaster we experienced in Çorlu is still very fresh; What measures will be taken to prevent such incidents from happening again?
    8. In the face of the bad results attributed to "natural conditions, seasonal conditions, developments above seasonal conditions" after similar events and disasters caused by so-called accidents that occurred due to these events, it was as if science and science were/are helpless in the face of such situations. perception is created. If so, do our citizens in Turkey travel on the railways, entrusted to Allah? When will you abandon this understanding and evaluate the events on the scale of science and science, and do what is necessary about those responsible?
