TR CITY TRAFFIC PERCENT 50 COMFORTABLE ”
MUSIAD President Mehmet Eza Bakir said that 50 would ease the traffic of Diyarbakir by tram. “It is essential for the tram to be built in our city. Both the trustee and the governments before the trustee did not do what they promised. This is a very delayed project, it was put on the agenda for political rent only during the election periods and no one made any attempt after the election. The tram is a need and befits our city. Reduces our traffic problem to 50 percent. With the arrival of the tram, the waiting time of citizens and buses will be reduced. In addition, the minibus drivers who act in threats to the safety of the citizen is also in a position to give self-regulation. It should be done soon. Neither the old administrations nor the new administration will build the tram. The last 7 months ago we talked to the authorities. We said we will, but still no attempt has been made. We are waiting as citizens, ”he said.
“PEOPLE MUST NOT BE PUNISHED”
Mehmet Kaya, the President of the Diyarbakır Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DTSO), stated that the failure to put the tram project into operation would only serve to punish the public; Ulaşım In Diyarbakır, especially urban transportation has been a problem that has not been solved for a long time. When we look at the smaller cities of Diyarbakır, we see that they solve in a healthier, more environmentally sensitive and economic way by means of public transportation, light rail subway or tram. This kind of problem was not solved in Diyarbakır. Of course, one of the main reasons is that this problem has always been hampered by the central government's disapproval of local governments' projects. In fact, despite all the possibilities of the government in the trustee period, the investments were not used in the right direction. Classical road from the past, asphalt, etc. investments. We make such attempts as room. We do our best to build and strengthen the relations of the local government with the central government. Everyone should accept that, as everywhere else, there are elected people in our city, and there is a central government. Projects can be made with the resources and the resources of the central government. Here, we discuss with the governments and the president, especially with our appointed managers, governors and politicians that it is necessary to cooperate especially in such investments. Not to pave the way for such investments is to punish the public. So this kind of project is not something to do with the municipality or the central government alone. Both can be realized with a project to be made with the common mind. The metropolitan municipality that will do the actual work here is the central government which will transfer resources. Together, this project should be implemented as soon as possible. Because not realizing this is useless to punish the citizen. ”
“TRAMVALA TOGETHER WE WILL TRAVEL SAFELY”
Recep Tanis said that he was upset because there were trams in other cities but not in Diyarbakir. Orum I want the tram to come, because in the area where we are, the bus comes every half hour and we're late for work.

Although our city's population exceeds 2 million, it still lags behind many small cities. When we go to other cities that we do not have, but when we see the opportunities offered to citizens in the city why we are not bad in our city. As soon as possible, the authorities should find a solution and do their part ”.

In addition, the tram is socialite attracts the attention of our people. It's embarrassing that he didn't come so far.
