Erdogan promises to build new canal in Ankara
A new canal with a length of 9.2 kilometers will be built in Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
He recalled that the Justice and Development ruling party pays close attention to the development of all cities, and intends to continue the implementation of mega-projects, Turkish media reported.
The construction of the canal in Ankara was planned in 2014, for which a tender was announced, but the results were annulled by the Ankara Mayor's Office. Then it was reported that the canal was not intended for commercial purposes and its construction was aimed at preventing mudflows.
