Dilovası Mayor Hamza Şayir, who examined the restoration works of the historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge in Dilovası, said that the Historical Bridge will be restored to Dilovası.
Dilovası Mayor Hamza Şayir announced that the work has begun to restore the historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge, one of the most important symbols of Dilovası, on Dilderesi, which has been idle for years.
EXAMINED THE HISTORICAL BRIDGE
With the initiatives of Mayor Şayir, works started on the historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge, which was designed by the Cultural Heritage Preservation Regional Directorate and started to be built by the General Directorate of Highways.
Dilovası Mayor Hamza Şayir examined the works on the historical bridge with the AK Party Dilovası District Chairman İlhan Yıldırım, district administrators and technical staff of the municipality.
600 YEAR-OLD BRIDGE
Mayor Şayir, who received information about the works from the technical team, said, “The historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge has a very important place for Dilovası. Our Historical Bridge, which is stuck between the industry, has a history of 600 years. The work, which was built by Mimar Sinan by Suleiman the Magnificent, is almost a symbol of Dilovası.
The 65 meter long stone bridge has three arches. It has drain eyes in the middle of its feet. The fact that the bridge passed to our time without any maintenance and repair reveals how strong and a great work it is. We are also working to do our part to revive this great work entrusted to our ancestors. I hope our historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge will be restored to its former glory after it is completed in a short time ”.
