Talatpaşa Boulevard Elevated Pedestrian Crossing Project
Within the scope of the project, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality built a 34-meter-long pedestrian platform, similar to the examples in Europe, for pedestrians to pass on the Cyprus Martyrs Street section of Alsancak Talatpaşa Boulevard, one of the areas with the highest pedestrian traffic in the city. 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.
