ASAT roadworks completed - road to the harbour reopens PDF Print E-mail

Roadworks completed

Workmen from the local water company ASAT have been working on İskele Sokak (aka Cardiac Hill) for several weeks now.  They have put in a major drainage channel that will take surface rainwater underground and discharge it into the harbour.  

KTLN discovered that originally this work was 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.  However this was always going to be an impossible task to complete before the start of the tourist season.  In the end they just went up the hill as far as the taxi rank and called it a day.  (For now).

They have resurfaced the hill down to the harbour with bricks and even tidied up the pavement outside Pirat Hotel and Marina restaurant.  It's all looking rather good. 

The road is now open to traffic but currently there is a lot of loose sand on the road surface so if you are driving a car or riding a scooter we suggest slowing down to avoid skidding.

Below: How the road is looking now.
