IMM continues to work for the 'Green Istanbul' target. Continuing its rehabilitation works on Ayamama Creek, IMM will establish a living valley around the stream and gain 1 million square meters of area for the city.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) continues its studies on the valley of life, which is one of the promises of IMM President Ekrem İmamoğlu. İBB, which rehabilitated the Ayamama Stream passing through Başakşehir, Sultangazi, Küçükçekmece, Bağcılar, Bahçelievler and Bakırköy districts, has now started to work on establishing a life valley around the stream. When the valley of life is completed, a walking and cycling path extending to the Marmara Sea will be provided to the citizens.
"One million square meters of green space will be created in the city"
Ayamama Life Valley works are carried out within the body of IMM Park Garden and Green Areas Department. Saying that the Ayamama Life Valley project excites them very much, IMM Park Garden and Green Areas Department Head Prof. Dr. Yasin Çağatay Seçkin gave the following information about the project:
“Here, as it is known, there was a project around which there was a 15-meter road belt on both sides. Instead of that project, we did research to regain the valley. We started a project work that stretched up the entire valley from the sea. We want to include as much green areas as possible in the area. We plan to make all areas, including our bicycle paths, a permeable and clearly green area. "
Uninterrupted walking and cycling paths
When Ayamama Yaşam Vadisi is completed, a walking and cycling path extending to the Marmara Sea will be brought to Istanbul residents. Saying that the project, which will bring 1 million square meters of area to the city, will also have public transportation axes, Seçkin summarized the work done on transportation as follows:
“Starting from the coast, we will continue uninterruptedly from the Ataköy Beach. Some highways, transportation routes such as Marmaray and E-5 are found in the studies. With overpasses and underpasses, we have turned the area of overpasses and underpasses into an uninterrupted route, allowing bicycle and pedestrian crossings. It is important that this area is uninterrupted. There are a number of transportation points on this area, especially railway stations. We have made direct connections to our valley from these stations. "
