“KOCAELİ NEEDS PHYSICAL BRIDGES”
Recorded that Kocaeli is on a very important route. Dr. Mehmet Küçükmehmetoğlu “Kocaeli is the city that opens to the world with the gates and ports of Anatolia. Geography is destiny for Kocaeli. The gateway to the world is one of the biggest problems to be solved in Kocaeli. Kocaeli needs physical bridges. If you say these physical bridges, I can say that there are bridges, roads, highways, railways and airlines that provide transportation. Since it is an industrial city in Kocaeli, we need bridges and without them there is no trade. ”
ALI WE SHOULD MAKE THE WAYS TO ACCELERATE TRADE ”
“Osmangazi bridge and motorway was the last place to enter these examples, Küçük Küçükmehmetoğlu said. Osmangazi Bridge also reduced the population towards Istanbul, but the population in the surrounding cities increased. This created a need to ease transportation in the surrounding cities. According to our neighboring country Turkey is among the countries that uses one of the most long-distance trade. This also causes difficulties for our export and trade area. New transportation investments both make people's lives easier and also make them more comfortable in their trading companies and make their businesses more comfortable. ”
