Cumhuriyet Street, with Hürriyet Street, is the most important predominant public space of the city since the construction of the railway in the 1870s. After the removal of the railroad in 2000, the street became even more popular with the plane trees defining the wide road surrounded by the most famous shops of the city. Today the potential of this public realm is underused as a result of the heavy traffic, several infrastructure constructions destroying the levelling of the street, and ignorance. The project offers a new public space by pedestrianization of Hürriyet street and slowing the traffic at Cumhuriyet street. This increased publicity is reinforced with the levelling of the whole promenade and adding new spots to increase the social interaction between people.
