Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is building new road bridges in Menemen, Dikili and Bergama to ease and make safe both vehicle and pedestrian transportation. Projects under construction will cost 19 million liras.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality continues its investments in 30 districts with the aim of increasing the quality of life of the citizens. The Metropolitan Municipality, which took action to ease transportation, make it safe and comfortable in Menemen, Dikili and Bergama, is building three new bridges.
The project was changed so that the trees in Dikili would not be cut down.
Within the scope of three projects, the highway bridge on the 1st Street, which is one of the important transportation axes of Bademli Neighborhood in Dikili, will be renewed and expanded. The construction of the 30-meter-long bridge will begin in the coming days. In order not to damage the trees in the area during the construction of the bridge, the project was revised and one of the bridge piers was shifted 70 cm to the south. Thanks to this change, dozens of fruit trees were saved from being cut down.
