During the construction of the TANAP pipeline in the province of Kutahya in the west of Turkey, historical values as well as ancient tombs dating back to the Roman Empire were discovered.
According to the administration of the Governorate of the Kutahya province, at the present time excavations are being conducted at this site in order to investigate the discovered historical values.
The report also says the discovery of historical artifacts had no impact on the progress of construction work on the TANAP project.
Earlier in a number of Turkish provinces, during the construction of the TANAP pipeline, ancient tombs and other historical artifacts were discovered.
It should be noted that the physical work on the construction of the Trans-Anatolian pipeline has already been completed by 82 percent. The total length of TANAP is 1,850 kilometers.
