Köprü will contribute a lot to Hasankeyf's tourism
Hasankeyf District Governor Temel Ayca informed the Ilke News Agency about the work done and said, “Three bridges will be built in Hasankeyf within the scope of the Hasankeyf Ilısu Dam project. One of them will be a pedestrian bridge. This will be around 200 meters long. Its tender has been made and its construction cannot be started yet. Apart from that, two bridges to be used by the main vehicles will be built. The length of the first bridge is 470 meters and its construction has been continuing for about 7 months. The main bridge will be one thousand 7 meters long.
This bridge will also be one of the longest bridges in Turkey. The construction of this has been started for about 7 months and continues. These bridges will be finished in 2016. When the bridges are finished, both the transportation of Hasankeyf will provide very serious benefits, and because that great bridge will pass over the water in terms of visuality, our citizens who reach Hasankeyf will have a very beautiful visual appearance. We think that when it is finished, Hasankeyf will contribute a lot to tourism. said.
We want to live humanely now

They said there would be a new city, new bridges and roads. Then we have given support for this. Hasankeyf bridges started. It's a huge bridge. This means a second throat in the Southeast. This new Hasankeyf is saved for us. With its infrastructure, it is a city where we will live humanly with its superstructure. Here we live in houses with square meters of 45. We live in houses with no infrastructure, no sink, no toilet and no bath. Now we want to live human. Artık he said.
