To put it simply, the 3 Istanbul will fit in the area of ​​Balıkesir.

In particular, our population is scattered over most of our surface area. For example, Kayseri has a population of 1 thousand 300 million, but the 1 million 100 bini of it sits in the city center. 200 is in districts and villages. Eskişehir has a population of 800 thousand, but the 700 bini is in the city center. Only 100 bini lives in counties and villages. Balikesir 1 million 200 thousand people have. While 300 has a population of one thousand people in the center, our population of 900 thousand lives in districts and rural neighborhoods. When our geography is wide, we have to make a lot of effort and act fast. We haven't stopped since the day we arrived. We rounded up all the districts. In these visits, we had the chance to listen to the citizens and to listen to them and learn their wishes first hand. We met with the mayors, district governors, muhtars of our districts. We listened to their problems, demands, desires and desires. We visited our ongoing projects and saw what they were doing. Then, together with my colleagues, we blended all of these and determined our projects that prioritize the priority needs of our people. Sonr

Zekai Kafaoğlu stated that they identified the shortcomings on the one hand and that they were listening to the demands of the citizen on the other hand. Zekai Kafaoğlu, who was one of the subjects that the people complained the most, was the high amount of water bills. 25 percent of the centers immediately, the 50 in the countryside said they went to the discount. President Kafaoğlu stated that these discounts contributed not only to Balıkesir people but also to citizens living in other provinces of our region. Adı When we went down on water bills, other provinces could not raise. He was able to raise at a very small rate. For example, the agenda of the Manisa Metropolitan City Council has reached the 10 water hike. City Council Members, by showing us as examples; Iler When the discounts between 25 and 50 in Balıkesir are discounted indirim, they rejected the hike. The rent prices are the same as wholesalers. We have become a wholesaler of European standards, but the shopkeepers we put into are unhappy. Immediately we went to discount rates at the rate of 30. We came to this task to make our people happy. As the Metropolitan Municipality, we said Balıkes Happy and Peaceful City Balıkesir Balıkes in our slogan. Now the faces of our people started to laugh. Artık

We saw in the district and rural neighborhood visits that we still have more citizens in the mud. For this reason, 2018 year was declared asphalt year. The 2000 kilometer asphalt will be completed before the end of this year. X


President Zekai Kafaoğlu, who made statements on the planned projects to be completed in Balıkesir, ended his speech by; "As I said before. While aiming to complete our urgent needs, our projects which are essential to 2019; 2023 Balıkesir Cumhurbaşkanımız the target as a shining star in turkey we need to do our best. We have made our determination to prepare a long-term 2023 Balıkesir to Turkey. We provided the necessary contacts. We continue on our way with policies and projects that are directed towards the future, not by the policy of saving the day. We have taken the necessary measures. Briefly speaking; The projects we aim to complete by 2019 are as follows. One of the most important problems of Balıkesir is no doubt the traffic problem. In order to relieve traffic, bridged intersections will be made, the shores will be overhauled and 5 will be rebuilt 2.000 kilometers this year.

Social housing projects will be much easier to host now. With the works to be carried out on agriculture and tourism, it will bring added value to Balıkesir and the city will change.

We needed projects that would be suitable for Balıkesir's structure and that would produce our products produced in our province directly to our consumers. To this end, we have produced a project called Rural Development Chain considering that we are at the forefront of agriculture.

In the city center and in our towns, we found that the public needed parks where people could breathe. For this we have produced new park projects. We would like to offer all the maintenance of the existing parks and to offer the parks to the service of the Balıkesir with the revised projects, where the demands of the more modern, more modern people are at the forefront.

We are starting to take the service to our citizens with this and hundreds of similar projects. These authorities are service authorities. As Mayor, it is our main duty to serve our citizens. However, our political experiences showed us that serving alone is not enough. Our people want service and will want. This is their most natural right. But our citizens also want to see clearly; They chose to see him next to the Mayor, to chat with him directly, wants to tell the problem. On his happy day, In short, citizens want to see themselves replaced. We opened our doors to the public on the first day we took office to show it. I became a president with which they could easily access. To date, we hosted close to a thousand visitors to 40.

I did not visit the citizens to touch, listen to them to the districts. When I had the opportunity, I went to the rural neighborhoods, I was with our citizens and we continue to be.

We are grateful for the intense interest shown both to me and to our Municipality. We love Balıkesir and Balıkesir very much. Our door is always open to our doors. ”



Problems in traffic flow, one of the most important problems of Balıkesir, will be largely eliminated with cross-over junction and overpasses across the province.

The 2 of the interchanges will be built in the city center. The Governor's Bridge Interchange and the Courthouse Junction Center will seriously relieve traffic. Erdek Köprülü Junction, Bandırma Entrance Intersection Akçay Köprülü Intersection will organize the flow of traffic in these districts.

The courthouse will be built in front of the courthouse in Altıeylül District. 315 meters long, 20 will be meters wide.

There will be an underpass at the Bandırma Intersection. 400 meters long, 28 will be meters wide.

Along with the 4 overpass that will be built at various points of the city, traffic problems will be settled to a great extent.

With the cooperation of TCDD, the overpass to be built in AltıeylülGümüşçeşme Quarter will be 180 meters long and 14 meters wide.

Overpasses will be built at the Second Industrial Door, GOP Cement Factory and the Old Kepsut Road Basmakas.


Road construction and repair work in the 2018 year will gain a great acceleration. 40 percent of existing roads across the province will be renewed. 2000 km printing, asphalt and stone printing road work will be done in total. All of the districts, neighborhoods and rural neighborhoods throughout the province will be overhauled and the problematic road will not be left. No more rural areas in Balıkesir will be unpaved. No foot of our citizens will touch the mud.


One of the biggest problems of developing cities today is parking problem. In order to minimize this problem, the construction of multi-storey car park for 2.000 vehicles in Karesi and Altıeylül districts is started. Car parks with hundreds of vehicles will significantly reduce the need for parking in the city.


Automation Management System is established in the city center. The 20 intersection at critical points will be managed with smart city systems. Smart Automation System will be installed in Balıkesir and Bandırma. 24 will be a safer city in Balıkesir with watched roads and intersections.


Balıkesir will realize a very important project on public transportation. A similar tram in Beyoglu of Istanbul will provide a nostalgic air to the National Forces Street and this tram will be provided from the top of the National Forces Street. Prior to the realization of this project, a survey will be conducted with the Balıkesir and their opinions will be taken on whether to implement this application or not. As a result of this project, our people will say the last word.
