President Büyükakın, who is also closely interested in parking areas, said, “We completed the overpass here in a short time by taking advantage of the conditions brought by the pandemic period.

"COMFORTABLE ACCESS TO THE COAST IS REQUIRED"
Mayor Büyükakın said, "This overpass will provide great convenience for our citizens who will get on and off from the western terminal" Drawing attention to the tram stop right next to the bridge, he said: “The tram stop is essentially an important transportation point to reach the Seka Park cultural area, Science Center, Paper Museum, social areas and the beach. It was supposed to be easy access to the beach from here. The first function of this bridge, which is opened to use, will be this access. Our citizens, who get off quickly from the tram station, will have the opportunity to cross the bridge directly. "
"IT WILL MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR OUR CITIZENS"
Stating that there are two elevators in the overpass, Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Assoc.

This interest was causing parking problems in certain periods. Although we increased our parking capacity, it was not enough. Therefore, the Science Center will also contribute to the parking lot areas on the beach of the parking lot in our region ”.
"THOSE TWO BRIDGES FOR OUR PEOPLE ARE EXTREMELY CRITICAL"
Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Assoc, saying, "We are close to the end of the construction of a bridge there, so that our citizens who get off at the tram stops in the Congress Center and Schools District can pass to the coast.

Hopefully, we are continuing our efforts to complete both bridges in a short time ”and completed his statement.
