“We are Evaluating the People of Izmir for Service”

Since the traffic could not be closed, complete asphalt work has never been carried out here for 15-20 years. We have evaluated the opportunity created by these days, which we never want to see again, for a more beautiful and livable Izmir. For this reason, we turned the situation into an opportunity. We will have presented a gleaming way to the people of Izmir. Our friends are working very seriously. We are evaluating these days when the curfew is imposed for the service of the people of Izmir. That's why I am very happy and proud. ”

We have 24 hour asphalt paving works. Our productions continue. We turned this ban into an opportunity. A suitable environment has been created to work. We were doing piecemeal spreading in the open area. Since we are now closed to traffic, we are laying asphalt to all lanes of the road at the same time. In this way, we obtain an extremely high quality, durable surface since there are no cuts and joints. ”
