“This asphalt renewal is one of the busiest axes in the city connecting the main artery, districts such as Ümraniye, Üsküdar, Beykoz, Çekmeköy and bridges such as Fatih Sultan Mehmet - Yavuz Sultan Selim. Therefore, the work we do here is very important for land transportation in Istanbul to gain a healthy and sustainable form. Because, this axis that we are working on, unfortunately, is defined as the 'death path' among the public. We are trying to quickly finish the 'Ali Bahadır Junction' road to make this place safe for 16 million Istanbulites. When our work is finished, there will be a great decrease in traffic accidents that occur on this road. When this rough road is completed, comfort will be provided for the travels of our citizens. ”
