ASAT roadworks in Kalkan set to cause disruption PDF Print E-mail

ASAT drain channel

Article updated 19th March: Workmen from the local water company ASAT have been working on İskele Sokak (aka Cardiac Hill) for a few weeks now.

They are putting in a major drainage channel that will take surface rainwater underground and discharge it into the harbour.  

KTLN has discovered that this work is going to involve digging a wide trench all the way up from the harbour along Şehitler Caddesi, past the banks and beyond Migros supermarket towards the D400 traffic light junction.  We assume the trench will be dug in sections and filled in again as they move up the hill.

We are informed that ASAT must complete the work by 1st April 2018.  The disruption to traffic and parking in town during the month of March is likely to be significant.

On the positive side, once this drainage system is in place it will be a welcome change not to have the main road in Kalkan turned into a raging torrent every time we have a serious downpour.

Let's hope that once the work is done ASAT returns the road surface to something like its current condition.

Update 19th March: We spoke to Kaş Belediye about progress on these roadworks.  They tell us that work will be halted when ASAT reaches the top of the hill (İskele Sokak), by the roundabout.  Any further work along Şehitler Caddesi will wait until the end of the tourist season.  The road will be made good where excavations have taken place.

Below: Photos taken yesterday of the work so far on İskele Sokak.
