The establishment of a “crisis safety centre” has been suggested at the assembly, in view of the increasing number of traffic accidents in the TRNC.

According to Zeki Ceker deputy of the Socialist Democracy Party (TDP), over the last ten year, 389 people have died in road traffic accidents. For every person that lost their lives, another five suffered severe injuries.

Since the beginning of 2017, 14 people had died on the road, he said.

Following the opening of the border [in 2003], 664 Turkish Cypriots had died in the TRNC and one Turkish Cypriot had died on the road in South Cyprus.

Speaking at the same assembly meeting, Erkut Sahali, deputy of the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) stated that the traffic infrastructure in the TRNC cannot meet the needs of the increased population and accused the government of not taking measures to improve the roads.
