Extension of İzmir-Aydın Highway to be discussed in Parliament
CHP Congressman Akın Üstündağ has submitted a parliamentary question to Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications regarding the extension of İzmir-Aydın Highway to Muğla.
The suggestion points out that the distance between Aydın and Muğla is only 97 km and the fact that Muğla is essential for domestic and foreign tourism and located in a an area with touristic importance near Antalya requires a highway.
Congressman Üsündağ explained, “Bodrum, Marmaris and Fethiye draw a significant number of tourists from our country and abroad. Having two important international airports, this region requires a highway as soon as possible. A highway is an investment that will meet the requirements of transportation. If we also consider requirement of the connection of the highway with Dalaman Airport, situated in the west of Antalya, this requirement is even more important.”
