100% Domestic Design Tram and Subway Carriages are Manufactured in Bursa
The tram manufacturing project, which will make Bursa the centre of tram manufacturing as well as automobile manufacturing is in progress. Within the scope of this project continuing in cooperation with Durmazlar Machinery, all parts of the tramway will be manufactured locally including the software and the vehicle body. It is a project of prestige for Turkey not just for Bursa. The planning stage that usually takes 2-3 years is completed in a short period and all of the carriages that will be used in inter-city tramway routes will be manufactured locally. The first carriage is at the final stages of production and will be ready for testing soon. Two types of tests will be conducted; with and without passengers and the first tramway is scheduled to be put into use by the end of this year. Railway systems is a high-cost investment and the main reason this project was started was to manufacture high-quality products at lower costs; therefore, metropolitan cities such as Istanbul, Gaziantep, Adana, Kocaeli, Konya, Sakarya and Samsun are also following this Project with great interest. As part of the Project Bursa’s demand for carriages will first be met, later the national and international demand for carriages will be taken into consideration when planning further production.
