INVESTIGATION PERTAINING TO TRAFFIC PROBLEMS IN ISTANBUL (TURKEY). THE H-RAILROAD AS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM

EINE UNTERSUCHUNG UEBER DIE VERKEHRSPROBLEME IN ISTANBUL--DIE H-BAHN ALS MOEGLICHE LOESUNG DES PROBLEMS

The inner urban traffic of Istanbul is characterized by the lack of high-capacity rail guided transport modes. At present line traffic operated taxis -- the dolmuslar -- dominate the traffic. Taking into account the predicted growth of Istanbul's population an expansion of the present system would lead to a traffic chaos. Therefore the author has studied the qualification of the H-Bahn as a rail guided transport mode. It is concluded that the H-railroad is sufficiently efficient and requires smaller investments than a subway.
