Municipality to begin ‘test driving’ car-free Girne for a month

A municipality spokesman said the “trial run” of a month would begin on March 1, with certain roads shut to vehicles from 4.30pm on a Friday until 6am on a Monday.
Mayor Nidai Güngördü said they were considering which routes to close, and were currently thinking of the Ziya Rızkı Caddesi “high street”, from Ramadan Cemil Square and down to the Atatürk monument.

“We want to make the central, historical part of Girne an area of great attraction to visitors, with the shops alongside cafés, restaurants and bars,” he said.
