We are officially opening the İskele-Çayırova Road, which is a part of the Famagusta Dipkarpaz line. With the completion of this 322-kilometer section as a divided road, transportation to oil, industry, tourism facilities, ancient and historical sites on this route has become easier and driving comfort has increased. With the Balalan-Yenierenköy Road, Nicosia-Değirmenlik-Girne Esentepe Junction projects, we will ensure that the village road improvement works, of which 9 kilometers have been completed, will be concluded in a short time.”

Pier – Çayırova Road; Iskele begins at the Carob Factory Junction at the exit of the Bosphorus and ends at Bafra Junction. The 5×2 lane road with 2 modern roundabouts and 2 shelter pockets (Parking area) was designed with a platform width of 23 meters. With the project, which relieved the traffic density on the route, whose annual average daily traffic (YOGT) amount reached 10 thousand, more comfortable and safer transportation service was offered. This way, a total of 23 million TL will be saved annually, 3,2 million TL from time and 26,2 million TL from fuel oil, and carbon emissions in the region will be reduced by 1.324 tons.

With the project, an important step has been taken in the completion of the Famagusta-Dipkarpaz line, which will connect the eastern part of the TRNC with the comfort of a divided road in the north-south direction.
