It produces relative solutions, no solution is 100 percent in these works… The point we are late is the ring road… According to the Traffic Transportation Master Plan, the ring road will take one third of the traffic out. It will provide a great opportunity. Unfortunately, as Konya, we were late as a country in this regard. This is a government project… During the Ahmet Davutoğlu period, it was tried to be designed, 68 kilometers of it were tendered during our new government period. It started from an easy place, the section from the Karaman road to the Istanbul road was tendered. " said.
