Chairman Zorluoğlu made statements about Kanuni Boulevard and Maçka Tunnel at the May council meeting of the Trabzon Metropolitan Municipality.
Trabzon Metropolitan Mayor Murat Zorluoğlu, who gave information about the road works carried out at the beginning of the meeting, used the following statements; “From 11.00:3 in the morning, we examined the new roads built in Kanuni Boulevard, Değirmendere and the work of taking the Maçka road into the tunnel with our Regional Director of Highways and our team for about 2 hours. There was a detailed information. And I should gladly state that although our state is going through a somewhat troublesome economic process due to the pandemic, these studies continue without slowing down. I would like to visit these works with our council members. When seen, we can understand more clearly what can be done. The road coming from Maçka direction will be taken to a tunnel of approximately 1980 km. That tunnel work started in the direction of Maçka. Two different 3-lane tunnels of approximately 58 meters are being built. It is XNUMX percent complete. The expropriation works required at the exit of the tunnel from the city continue intensively. After a certain distance from the exit of the tunnel, an intersection arrangement will be made at the location of Vardallar's building. And when that road exits the tunnel with a viaduct over it, it will turn into an intersection from the bottom on the one hand, and on the other hand it will be connected to the newly built trumpet junction on the beach. In this way, the traffic congestion in the industrial zone, where Trabzon has been suffering for many years, will be eliminated to a great extent. "
“At the same time, there is a road connecting to Çukurçayır from there. Although it has a 13 percent slope, it will almost look like a road like Erdoğdu road. It is also designed as a divided road. Approximately 1 km of road will be built, starting from the exit of the tunnel in Değirmendere, a high-quality high-quality road will be connected to Çukurçayır. Expropriation studies are also continuing. Hopefully, when that road work is completed, it will be connected to Kanuni Boulevard quickly. Thus, the east of the city will be easily connected to the upper elevations before coming to the Square again. Things are going well on Kanuni Boulevard, too. There, starting from Çatak, the Bahçecik viaduct, later on the Arsenal section, the Boztepe tunnel, and then the Çukurçayır tunnel were completed. It has Gölçayır-1 and Gölçayır-2 tunnels. From Gölçayır 1 tunnel, the expropriation border ends, and from there, with the area to be gained with 18 applications, I hope that road will be connected to Maçka road with Gölçayır-1 and Gölçayır-2 tunnels. I did not see any problem in that study either. The process regarding expropriations continues. Hopefully, when both Kanuni Boulevard and its connections are completed, a very important convenience will be provided for Trabzon in terms of transportation to the upper elevations. At the same time, the traffic load of the square and the beach will be reduced. "
“As the Mayor of Trabzon Metropolitan Municipality, I would like to thank our Ministry of Transport and our Minister of Transport, Mr. Adil Karaismailoğlu, for continuing these efforts meticulously even in this difficult time. Again, we sincerely thank our previous Minister of Transport, Mr. Cahit Turhan, who signed the initiation of these works. We would like to thank our esteemed General Manager of Highways Abdulkadir Uraloğlu brother and Highways Regional Director Mehmet Aşık and his team. We, as the Metropolitan Municipality, are working in cooperation with them with every effort we can to complete these roads and connections in a short time. We use all kinds of power to overcome the blocked points both locally and in Ankara. "
