Second court case reinforces earlier decision to halt new Kalkan - Kaş highway PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 14 March 2018

Kaputas gorgeLast year the Turkish Highways Department announced that a new dual carriageway was being planned as an alternative to the present Kalkan - Kaş route.  It is part of a general road building programme that has seen many stretches of the D400 widened and improved over recent years.

This project is being challenged by a number of local individuals, the Kaş Tourism and Promotion Association and others.

In an article published by KTLN on 4th January 2018 we explained the background to the project and reported on a court decision to temporarily halt all work pending expert reports being produced to the court.  You can read that KTLN report here. 

In today's report we bring you details of a second court case brought against the project.  On Monday in Antalya a second court ruling was made which reinforces the earlier decision from a different court and halts the project in its tracks.

Kalkan water spout 12th March 2008

Can you remember what you were doing ten years ago today?

Today in Kalkan is a lovely day - a little cloudy but with some blue sky and the sun peeking through.  But on this day in 2008 things were a little different. 

On the 12th March 2008 the sky above was black and looking out to sea you could catch a glimpse of daylight.  Forming below the clouds were funnels of swirling wind - or water spouts, to give them their proper name.

From our safe vantage point in Kızıltaş we photographed the gathering storm and tracked one water spout as it traversed the bay and made landfall, sweeping up towards the nearby village of Akbel. 

Here are just a few photos to remind you of what visited Kalkan ten years ago today.  At the time we submitted one of these photos to the BBC weather department and it was featured on a UK TV weather bulletin.

Kaş Tourism and Promotion Association Friendship Dinner PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 11 March 2018

Kaş Tourism and Promotion AssociationThe Kaş Tourism and Promotion Association is organising a social event this week - a "Friendship Dinner" with live music at the Kaş Marina.

The association works to promote this part of the Turquoise Coast as a tourist destination whilst at the same time trying to protect and preserve the local environment with its outstanding natural beauty and historical sites. 

They monitor developments that may impact on the environment and challenge decisions where they think there is a legal case to do so.

The dinner is open to everyone and the association hopes this event will attract new members as well as raise funds for their activities.

Calling all gardeners - community gardening events in March PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 10 March 2018

Bougainvillea at KTLN HQIf you’re a gifted gardener who’s passionate about plants or just a have-a-go horticulturalist we would like to let you know about a couple of events coming up that could be right up your sokak.

Kalkan Platform is a group which brings together a number of local associations to work together on various community projects.

Currently they are involved in a couple of projects connected to nature and the environment and they are looking for volunteers to lend a hand.  One project involves planting trees and the other aims to bring some colour to the harbour breakwater by planting bougainvillea bushes.

Kalkan taxis - prices and booking arrangements PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 09 March 2018

Kalkan taxiHere is some news that will be of interest if you use Kalkan taxis.  We are happy to report that despite double digit inflation (CPI was 10.26% in February 2018) and increasing road taxes and fuel prices, taxi fares are not increasing this year in Kalkan.

The status quo this year follows a price cut of around 25% in 2016 and then an increase of 12.5% in 2017.  The net result is that we are paying less for taxis now than we did three years ago.

Below we explain how taxi charges are calculated.  We also explain how there have been some restrictions on booking directly with your preferred taxi driver over the winter months - restrictions that are soon to be relaxed.
