North Cyprus News - Gonyeli underpass - projectMayor Benli said that the common targets were to provide more services to the public, stating that the Nicosia-Güzelyurt main road and Demir Sokak road project will solve the problem of traffic congestion. He noted that the underpass project project was to be implemented in January 2017.

Benli expressed his sadness and dismay at the sudden stoppage by the Highways Department. The mayor said that everyone was surprised by the move, that everyone trusted the municipality, which was trying to improve conditions for the whole community. The project was intended to provide access to Güzelyurt without the need to use the Gönyeli roundabout.
