Abstract

In this study, ring roads were divided into four regions, and the planting design of the peripheral roads passing through the central districts and located at important transportation network points of Bursa were evaluated. As a result of evaluations, 73 plant taxons were determined in all regions. The richest regions in terms of plant diversity are in the following order: 1st region between Atatürk Boulevard Junction and Acemler Junction, then the 3rd zone between Acemler connection Junction and Mudanya Boulevard, and the 2nd region located between Acemler connection Junction and Ankara Road – Bursa ring road connection junction. The 4th region is the region with the least diversity of plants. It has been determined that plant taxons are mostly suitable for road plants, prefer sun and shade, and are generally resistant to ecological conditions. As a result, it will be ensured to enrich the urban to landspace by supporting the design of the non-planted areas with appropriate plant taxon eliminating the deficiencies seen on the roads, and providing effective views to the drivers and pedestrians except the densely planted areas along the route.
