“Some houses, businesses and vehicles have been damaged. Again, 8 bridges have been damaged, 7 of which have been migrated, one of which is on the coastal road, cannot serve transportation, and 1 of them has been discharged in the approach fill. It is also out of service at the moment, but after our road teams repair the approach fill, we will also open it here.

Ordu Peripheral Highway
Stating that he was also investigating the Ordu Ring Road Project under construction in Ordu, Turhan said, “This project also constitutes an important part of the Black Sea Coastal Road. Ordu coastal crossing was divided during the Black Sea Coastal Road, but both local, regional and transit traffic causes a loss of time in transportation due to the high number of intersections, not leveling and signaling. ” he spoke.
Explaining that the tender for Ordu Ring Road was held to solve this problem and significant progress was made in construction works, Turhan said, “Ordu Ring Road is 21,4 kilometers in total. We aim to open the first stage of this to traffic at the end of this year. We aim to open it to the bus terminal intersection at the end of this year after passing the south of Ordu through the Boztepe tunnel from the 26th kilometer of the Thursday-Bolaman route and cutting the Ordu-Ulubey road. ” said.
Turhan pointed out that due to the geological structure of the land there is a risk of landslide, he said:
“Our friends informed about the landslide prevention study. After the completion of this landslide prevention project, other productions have been completed until the bus terminal junction. When the landslide prevention project is finished by the end of this year, a significant part of the traffic in the Ordu city crossing will be bypassed and we will be connected at the coastal road industrial junction by bypassing the Ordu coastal road from the bus terminal junction. This is an important step. We aim to connect the next steps to the university intersection next year. 2020 is envisaged to complete the project. ”
In the examination of Minister Turhan on Ordu Ring Road, he was accompanied by the Governor of Ordu Seddar Yavuz, AK Party Army deputies Şenel Yediyıldız, Metin Gündoğdu, Ordu Metropolitan Mayor Enver Yılmaz, Altınordu Mayor Engin Tekintaş and other officials.
