We have left a busy and active year behind, which we made proud works for TCDD. Important national and international projects of ours in 2019 will be remembered as milestones for making this organization a brand of international.
We are trying to produce the best for our railways with the innovative approaches with the emphasis on RE&DE activities while we plan for our future. Using national resources in this process is a must.
We succeeded an important RE&DE project with the cooperation of Operation Directorate of Railway Research and Technology Center (DATEM), Kardemir Karabük Demir Çelik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., Karabük University, Atılım University, and TÜBİTAK. Before “The Week of Domestic Goods” we celebrate between December 12-18 each year, the rails -which we domestically produced and whose hardness ratio is increased by the thermal processes whose patent belongs to TCDD – will prolong the abrasion life 3 times at spiral curves (bends). These rails will reduce the railroad maintenance costs of future and this is a good example about the added value to domestic and national approach.
It is one of the most important duties of ours to ease the lives of disabled citizens who overcome all the trouble they encounter. We start the Turuncu Masa Service, which will provide the disabled passengers to get help before and after travel, on the International Day of Disabled Persons in 13 stations. From now on, the disabled persons who come to our terminals and stations are our responsibility.
With the hope of more success together, enjoy the journey!
