In Turkey’s earthquake-affected provinces, massive housing construction has begun. This was said by the Minister of Environment, Urban Development and Climate Change Murat Kurum, reports Anadolu Agency.
In eleven provinces of Turkey, it is planned to build 46,300 residential buildings per year.
As part of the first phase of construction, the country’s authorities intend to build 17,902 housing units, 7,353 of which will be built in the center of the disaster – the province of Kahramanmarash.
The minister assured that residents of the south and southeast of Turkey affected by the earthquakes will be provided with housing within a year.
Recall that in early February, the Turkish province of Kahramanmarash was at the center of devastating earthquakes of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6. After that, new earthquakes occurred in the region, but with a lower magnitude.
According to the latest data, the number of victims of the earthquake in Turkey exceeded 50 thousand people.
