Trees emerged on and around the bridge legs, these trees and their roots grew and started to remove stones from the supporting legs. Our administration has started work on bed arrangement within the scope of machine operation in Göksu River. Due to the fact that the historical Taşköprü is within the protected area, an application has been made to the Silifke Museum Directorate to give us the necessary permit to work around the historical Taşköprü with our letter dated 24.10.2014. However, the process continues. Unless reinforcement is carried out on the carrier legs and edges of the bridge, the bridge faces the risk of collapse at any time. Since vehicles and people are still passing through it, it will be inevitable to experience loss of life and property in case of a possible collapse that may occur due to the increase in flow rate. ”
