Dust-suppression using appropriate carpet technology.
In the town of Bakacakkadı in Zonguldak's Gökçebey district, residents
who are fed up with dust resulting from infrastructure work on the roads
have solved the problem by laying down old rugs on the pavement.
Those living on İnönü Street in the Satıbeyler neighborhood have
complained that the brick rocks of the road that were removed two years
ago have not yet been replaced, resulting in clouds of dust created by
passing cars, especially in the dry summer months.
So, they took it upon themselves to solve the problem by laying down
old rugs on the pavement to surpress the dust. One of the street's
residents, Mürvet Albuzlu, called on authorities to solve the problem:
"All throughout the month of Ramazan we've been enveloped by dust.
When we go to the mosque in our white clothes they're soiled in no
time. We want officials to find a solution to this problem."
