On November 22, 2021, we started the construction work in all sections by delivering the site for the missing sections.

Their intentions are clear; Adil Karaismailolucontinued his criticism by saying, “Let the mud horse trail remain”, “But they are very wrong. We and the nation are tired of their lies and iridescent attitudes.

As a matter of fact, we made the necessary explanations again in the field investigations we carried out today. The old route is 106 kilometers in total. 95 for the second tender held in 2020.
