The reason for the government's insistence on the 3rd Bridge to be built in Istanbul has been revealed.
The 39st bridge (Bosphorus Bridge) built on the Bosphorus 1 years ago, will undergo a major maintenance in its 40th year. Due to the bridge that will remain closed for about a year, Istanbul traffic will become inextricable.
According to Sabah's report, the Ministry of Transport wants the 3rd Bridge to be put into service before the maintenance can be delayed for a maximum of two years. As no proposal was made for the 3-kilometer North Marmara Motorway Project, including the 414rd Bridge to be built in Istanbul, the Ministry of Transport decided to build the bridge with equity.
