İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor, who stated that they will find solutions to the problems in traffic with the addition of electric scooters, which have been increasingly used recently, to the bicycle density. Tunç Soyer“The streams connecting to the city and the gulf from the rural areas of İzmir will present a new transportation model to us, thanks to their sloping routes. We will design e-scooter roads by combining green and blue corridors. We will show the first example of this with the corridor we will implement on the Bornova Stream. Thus, transit roads to be created for micro-mobile vehicles via streams will offer a cheap and environmentally friendly alternative to congested traffic, and will provide safe and comfortable transportation. Along with the Blue-Green Corridor project on Bornova Stream, the interaction of the citizens with water will be increased with the landscape opportunities to be created along the green and blue corridor at the same time.”
