Hi

Does anyone know what's behind the major works in Bodrum at the moment - much of bar street and the road between the main mosque and the marina has been dug up?

Thanks,

Paddy

New water,drainage,electric....you name it they are doing it at the moment.Nearly every main road in town is closed & dug up....just like Gumbet last winter.

Rumour a couple of weeks ago was that the restaurants that used the pavements just opposite the mosque would not be allowed to reuse the pavement when the road was reopened. Since there is no room inside for most of these places they're going to disappear I assume.

Pity - for me the street cafe set-up is part of the character of a place like Bodrum.

Oh, all a bit depressing! I'd heard that it was part of a wider Bodrum refurbishment scheme, widening the pavements and making it more of a cafe style environment.

I can't find anything 'official' on the web. If anyone does get sight of the official position/plans I would be very interested to see them.

Thanks for the replies,

Paddy

Lots of posters around with artists impression of what it should be like. Looks to me like they are narrowing the road and widening the pavements for cafes with some layby places presumably for deliveries. Of course I could be wrong and it will end up nothing like they are showing.

We use the Marina Restuarant next to Palmye, a few times when we are in Bodrum.
When we were in there talking with Kenan last October, he informed us that alterations were going to take place over the winter & as a result all the restuarant seating areas would be moved back up to the buildings, & the footpath along side the road.
This was the Beledye`s idea, to stop problems with waiters dodging pedestrians on the footpath.

Allegedly the Mayor of Bodrum last summer went out on a yacht and took a look at Bodrum from the sea. He said it looked worse than Vietnam (war ?) and that he wants it to stop being an eyesore.
He wants it to look more like Paris (cafe scene ?)

Oh,i forgot this one.Barlar street,where the Barraz[spelling?] hotel once stood,you know,the one that had the huge fire last spring,got totally rebuilt & refurbished & re opened,then the beledeye came & took it back & demolished it !!!.
Now the area is being tiled & new toilets are being built in one corner.
Rumour has it,it's going to be a beledeye cafe.

Just got back from a week in Bodrum and have posted a couple of pictures of the alterations. It will all look good when it's finished but it will be a struggle to get what they have started finished in time for the start of the season.

I'm assuming that further work will be done over the next couple of winters as there is still all around the marina to start as well as all the rest of the bazaar continuing on from bar street.
