Turkish construction company to construct road in Iraq

23 October 2009, Friday /THE ANATOLIA NEWS AGENCY
A Turkish construction company will build a road in Iraq. Yüksel Construction Company stated on Friday that it began Kora-Shaklava-Qandil Project after a ceremony on Thursday.

The cost of the project, which is planned to be completed within 30 months, is 180 million USD.

The length of the road, which has a strategic importance on the corridor leading to Iran, is 51 kilometers.

Yüksel Construction Company, one of the leading companies in the Turkish construction industry, was established in 1963 in Ankara. During its initial years, Yüksel specialized particularly in piers, quays and ports and thus participated in the construction of one third of Turkish ports. Yüksel played an active role in the development of Turkey's infrastructure through numerous contracts covering transportation, energy, environmental and industrial projects. The firm expanded its operations into international construction industry in 1983.

Yüksel Construction and its subsidiaries, providing services in a wide range of areas (such as tourism, finance, information technology, manufacturing and investment), were organized under the umbrella of Yüksel Holding Company in 1997.
