Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality opened Mezopotamya Street, which connects Şanlıurfa road to Elazığ road, to traffic.
The Metropolitan Municipality continues its efforts to open new connected roads that will ease the traffic flow, especially in the city center, in the 2021 asphalt season.
The Department of Road Construction, Maintenance and Infrastructure Coordination has opened an alternative route for drivers by connecting Mesopotamia Street, which starts from the Şanlıurfa road in the central Kayapınar district, to the Elazığ road.
