If the 135 thousand vehicles do not pass a day, the government will pay the difference
In the first tender held on January 10, while no companies submitted bids, some changes were made in the project.
The 414-kilometer highway was removed from the North Marmara Highway Project, which also includes the bridge, leaving only a 100-kilometer road.
The daily traffic guarantee of the bridge was increased from 100 to 135 vehicles.
The burden of expropriation was taken from the back of the firms.
If you do not pass 135 thousand vehicles per day, the vehicle toll will be paid by the state.
If the vehicle passes above this, the gain will be of IC İçtaş-Astaldi.
Transactions in the bridge construction process will be exempt from VAT.
This exemption is expected to earn the company's 500 million dollar contribution.
