Figurative patterns from the historical roots of Izmir were worked on the elevated pedestrian crossing. Considering the access of disabled and elderly citizens, the roads and sidewalks have been brought to the same level. Thus, the area looks like a mini square. kazanAt the same time, it was also possible for pedestrians to cross the street without going up and down the sidewalks.
