The Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is establishing wooden piers on the Mustafa Kemal Sahil Bulvarı (coastal boulevard). Each of these piers will be 5 meters wide and 20 meters long.
The Izmir Metropolitan Municipality will bring the wooden piers, which have left their mark on the memory of the town’s history, back to life on the Mustafa Kemal Sahil Bulvarı. The building of the 5 wooden piers will be undertaken within the framework of the protocol signed with the Environmental and Urbanization Provincial Directorate. They will be located on the shoreline between Karataş to Üçkuyular within the scope of the Izmirdeniz (izmirsea) project, which is aiming to strengthen the relationship of the residents of Izmir with the sea, and to integrate the gulf with the shoreline. The piers will be completed by the end of the year.
The shoreline on the Mustafa Kemal Sahil Bulvarı is relatively narrow when compared to other coastal parts of the city, and the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is aiming to eradicate this disadvantage and start the pier projects, which it is aiming to spread across the city, at the mentioned coastal area.
Each of the wooden piers which will be located on the shoreline between Karataş and Üçkuyular will be 5 meters wide and 20 meters long. The piers will be in harmony with nature and have an aesthetic appearance, with one built between Göztepe and Üçkuyular, two in the Karataş – Karantina region, where the old sea baths and piers were previously located, and the other two in the areas in front of Susuzdere. The project will also make amateur coastal fishermen happy.
