Road to Rhodiapolis to be paved with asphalt
ANTALYA – Doğan News AgencyWork has begun to pave asphalt over the four-kilometer road to the ancient site of Rhodiapolis, located in the southern province of Antalya’s Kumluca district.
Mayor Hüsamettin Çetinkaya addressed his interest in the ancient site’s excavation work dating back to 2005 and said the municipality has once again opened the path to transportation after having paved it with asphalt two years ago as well. The visitors had to use a different route before 2013 to reach the site prior to the paving works.
Çetinkaya added the project included a substructure and rainwater draining channel. “When the one-month-long work is completed, we will pave the road with asphalt, with the support of our Metropolitan Municipality, in order to contribute to advertising the ancient site of Rhodiapolis, an important attraction point for tourism and history in our province. We aim to ease the transportation problems so larger groups can visit the site,” he said.
