The Last Point in GAZIRAY Project


The digital and technological service network launched by Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality in order to ensure that the Gazi city has an infrastructure in line with the requirements of the age was introduced at the press conference called “Transportation and Citizen-Oriented Smart Cities Applications” with the participation of Metropolitan Mayor Fatma Şahin.

The Metropolitan Municipality, which focuses on human-centered projects in order to act in accordance with the conditions of the changing and transforming world, held a press launch meeting of "Transportation and Citizen-Oriented Smart Cities Applications" to introduce the digital and technological works brought to the city. A series of presentations were made at the launch organized in the Metropolitan Conference Hall. Information was given about the last point reached in the GAZIRAY project, which will reduce the transportation problems of Gaziantep, and the activities planned with the aim of preventing possible vehicle traffic in the city depending on the population density of the Transportation Master Plan were explained. Road works between 2014-2020 were detailed. It was mentioned how the Smart Taxi application, whose planning has been completed, will be integrated into mobile applications. In the epidemic, the importance of the mask and disinfectant service and the thermometer application offered in urban travel with citizens was shed light. The benefits of the Gaziantep Communication Coordination Center (GIKOM), which was created to ease the coordination between citizens and the metropolitan, were mentioned, and information flow was provided about the operation process of GIKOM. With the Safe Parking System application, in case of child loss that will occur in various parking areas of the city or in adverse situations that children will experience, zamIt was announced that he could intervene at the moment. Beautify My City application was introduced in order to improve the shortcomings in the city quickly and in line with the demands through the service offered to the citizens. Based on the motto “Gaziantep is Reading”, the digital library of the metropolitan city, which took its place in mobile markets with more than 200 thousand books and 450 publishing houses, was put under the spotlight. On the other hand, his work is short zamIt was stated that the button was pressed for the new WEB site of the Metropolitan Municipality, which will be completed at the moment and will have an appearance in accordance with the requirements of the changing world, and a WEB site has been prepared in a suitable view for the TEKNOFEST to be held in the city in the upcoming dates.


Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Fatma Şahin stated that the launch of the Metropolitan Municipality to explain what has been done and what has not been done about the city is of high importance, and said, “We continue our efforts to fill the smart city. Of course, when we work very fast, we also lack a lack of explanation. The city lives very fast. The period has serious difficulties. We have many problems, of course, but we need to increase our problem-solving capacity. We must increase the citizens' quality of life. We have two basic streams. The first is water. During the pandemic process, we did a serious billboard work for our people to touch water and soap. Kartalkaya is full now. Düzbağ is over. We are part of a team that brought better quality and cheaper water from 130 kilometers away. The Düzbağ project is very important because the city's water shortage is not resolved, causing the loss of the value of other works. Transportation is our second important topic. The transportation issue of this city will continue to be the most important agenda in every period. Because we receive immigration. As long as we migrate, we have to make very serious investments in transportation. In the last period, very important investments were made in this field. I would like to thank President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and relevant ministries for their support in this process. We walked door to door with our secretary general every ten days. We need to follow the work we do to expand and touch the citizen to a better extent. The first period in the municipality is the dressing period. The main big things start in the 2nd period. When Asım Güzelbey handed over GAZIRAY to us, he said 'We could not achieve this job, it is really important for the city'. SHE IS zamWhen I was Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, we went to visit with all of our representatives. We made a great effort to get the GAZIRAY project started as soon as possible. It has been over 6 years and now we have come to the last point. Big jobs zamwants the moment. The smallest disruption in transportation causes serious problems. Therefore, housing and transportation should be among the most important topics in municipalities. When we look at the city in general, our work on education and school will continue at full speed. As you can see, although we don't explain it enough, the kitchen part is very sweating ”.


Noting that digitalization is one of the most important topics after the pandemic, Mayor Şahin said, “The Smart Cities Project we launched about 2 years ago was among the most important topics of the local governments manifesto. In the pandemic, we have seen that food security, supply chain, healthy cities, smart agriculture and digitalization will be the most important issues in the new world order. For this reason, the fact that we use this institutional capacity very well in the pandemic process has brought us to an important level. We increased our capacity to produce projects with Mete Deniz, Head of IT Department. This city is a city where young people are busy. With this new unit, we want to increase both the need for intermediate staff and the potential of trained manpower. Thus, we aim to become a kitchen. Our investments in human capital excite me very much. We can say that the conversion has started if we can get 500 people return in smart transportation. We continue our follow-up in detail within the scope of the works of the National Garden. I hope it will be finished in 1 year. We started at low risk during the pandemic period. Everyone did what he had to do. The new normal quickly adapted to everything in our city. The new normal process, which offered us a new standard of living, made it necessary for us to wear masks and maintain social distance. We have a jam in the center of open spaces, we have an extreme social city, who prefers to do everything together. The biggest problem is changing heads. In order to prevent excuses in every neighborhood I visit, we have managed 15 million mask projects with the Gaziantep Model every 15 days in order not to encounter the answer "I have no mask".


Hasan Kömürcü, Head of Transportation and Rail Systems Department of Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality, emphasized that they implemented the projects based on the words of Mayor Fatma Şahin, 'We will plan in the first place, we will implement it later' and said, “Planning was very valuable. In order to plan the transportation, the development plan zamIt is necessary to realize it instantly. The subject we started in the first process is very important. Because transportation is a very expensive investment. It is very difficult to return. It is necessary to plan correctly. In the transportation master plan process, we did not settle for road improvement alone, but addressed the issue holistically. Land use and accessibility topics were very important. Management of new travel demands was also very important. We have worked hard to prevent the increase in transportation demand and to develop solutions to prevent transportation and traffic problems. This has been the main point of departure for transport components in general. It is very difficult to manage the travel demands that increase with the regulations regarding highways. For this reason, we need to strengthen our point of view with solutions such as public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian in order to bring the demands to a conclusion. I can say that only the highway index in terms of access to the city center contains a very risky solution approach in terms of livable and sustainable cities. It is necessary to manage this process with alternative methods. I'm talking about the principles of our transport master plan. When you see the population growth and vehicle ownership together, you see that Gaziantep is an industrial city and its population is increasing every day in an attractive way. It was necessary to take precautions for this. I can say that the number of people working in some cities is much higher than the current population. When we look at the number of trips, we foresee that our journey will triple in 2030, so it was necessary to realize future projects. In the current situation, we see that our classic habits are in the form of the need for parking, automobile-oriented solutions and freight vehicles. However, instead of this, pedestrians and bicycles are indispensable for the disabled with the main plan of transportation.


Stating that the GAZIRAY project is very important in terms of transportation alternatives for the future, Kömürcü said, “As we all know, GAZIRAY was built on a 25-kilometer axle. It consists of 16 stations. On average, 95 percent of the work in open sections has been completed. We started the closed sections as of October. Work in the affected parts of the traffic will end around the end of 2020 and even around September. In addition, we have produced a very serious number of underpass and overpass projects in order to prevent possible traffic problems in the city. These were very important achievements in the city. During the construction phase of the GAZIRAY process, we knew that we would seriously change some of the habits of the citizens. We may create problems for some. We held a preliminary information meeting for this. This information was very important. We had to manage the process correctly. The metro line cannot be considered independently from GAZIRAY. Starting directly from the Station Square in Gaziantep and extending to the Millet Garden, in terms of minimizing the expropriation, without deviating from the main corridor and taking into account the underground situation, minus 22 meters at some points, passing through minus 53 in Düztepe, which is our highest depth, and our city It will be a very important achievement for the city hospital area. If we cannot implement the Metro project, it will be very difficult for us to manage the traffic of the city hospital. Therefore, Metro Gaziantep is very valuable for Gaziantep. In addition, with an infrastructure we offer our citizens, you can see where the taxi is and what zamWe have completed our studies for a technological infrastructure that will determine the future of the moment, know how much to pay and can easily observe the route it will go. I hope we will realize these works as soon as possible. In our municipality, we had friends who worked very hard in the pandemic. We continued all our activities without interrupting any work in a truly risky period. We had to turn the pandemic period into an advantage in terms of infrastructure. Life in the city had become stagnant. Some places were closed. During the pandemic period, we offered masks and disinfectant products for the health of the passengers. In addition, we continued our service with thermometers for early diagnosis. We continued the processes exactly as planned. Public transport use fell from 13 million to 2 million. We had streets in the city center, which citizens could not tolerate even small work. We have made drastic improvements in the pandemic quickly. We completed our work in the city center in a very short time. In addition, we started working on the arrangement of the old buildings in the Cemetery Crossroad and we plan to end our work in the region by 25 August ”.


Metropolitan Municipality Head of Information Technologies Department Mete Deniz, is close zam"GIKOM is at the top of our citizen-focused application," he said. During the pandemic process, GIKOM established a very integrated system with the governorship, the foundations and organizations related to the district governorship. Our goal here was to avoid duplication of distribution and aid. We have created a serious knowledge base. We have formed a structure that can distribute food aid to the city homogeneously. We have avoided 4 percent duplication and continue to improve the system. We followed this city instantly, where we helped and continued it seriously, especially under the coordination of GASMEK. Our call center Turkey's one of our best. Our service level does not fall below 95 percent. The waiting time of the citizen is 95 seconds on average. In April, when the pandemic was most intense, we made 4 million 1 thousand minutes of welcoming in the operator data. This means meeting all the calls coming to us. We rank 413st among public institutions in this regard and all Metropolitan Municipalities are included in this list. When banks are included in total, we rank 1th among all institutions. The closest metropolitan municipality welcomed us for 8 thousand minutes. If any technical information is given here, less searches were made in all metropolitan cities. But our difference is that we have increased the number of channels a lot and we have received all the requests from the city and we have seen the strength of our infrastructure. We dropped all contact points related to GIKOM to one ”.


Deniz, who continues to talk about the “Make My City” mobile application, the difference of this application is the memory of your applications. It is an application that you can follow the latest status of your complaints, at which stage, in which unit, whether it is closed positively and negatively. We have published in both android and iOS application markets. You can specify the location and take a picture and upload it. We made the digital library and launched its mobile application. An application where we can access 20 thousand books very quickly and easily. Again, this application is online in the markets, "he said.


Reminiscent of the operation and benefits of the Secure Parking System, Deniz said, “We placed panic buttons. Examples of this application and do not like in Turkey. Here, the citizen can reach the center of this system very quickly. In addition to reaching this center, there is a serious central monitoring system. Here, the whole park is tracked with smart software. Even if a friend in security does not look at these screens, a warning will be sent to the center when any child falls and does not get up for a certain period of time, a fight occurs, there is an abnormal situation or someone leaves a suspicious package. Here, the cameras will also zoom in on the area, and they can receive alerts even if they are not at work, with mobile applications given to our security units. When a child disappears, when the photo is shown, the mobile applications of the security personnel are given the coordinates of the place where that child is attached to the cameras immediately. ”


Finally www.dijital.gaziantep.bel.t is Stating that they have launched a new website, Deniz concluded her words as follows: “TEKNOFEST is on the air with a new face and visual designed in accordance with the spirit of TEKNOFEST. Starting completely from the coming weeks www.gaziantep.bel.t is We will publish it as. Here, it was a website where we can track the events very quickly and also find information about Gaziantep. We will serve with a new visual design. ”
