Didim Mayor Deniz Atabay said at his weekly press conference that a team of officers would initially assess the ease of access for the disabled along Cumhuriyet Caddesi and to see if any improvements can be made.

He said he wanted to see if any improvements can be made and to ensure that they conformed with pavement and road regulations.

The survey comes a week after members of the disabled community staged a protest highlighting the pavement shortcomings for the wheelchair-bound in the district.
