- Construction Time of the Bridge Will Break World Record: Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communications Minister Binali Yıldırım stated that the construction of the 3rd bridge in Istanbul continues at full speed, “These feet will be shaped by the end of the year. Our goal is to complete the third bridge and roads in 2015. This will be a world record if we can finish it. ”
Yıldırım was a guest of AA Editor's Desk moderated by AA General Manager and Chairman Kemal Öztürk and answered questions.
On the question of whether the name of the third bridge will change Yıldırım, no change in this issue is not in question, the decision was given and was shared with the public, he said.
Expressing that the construction of the bridge continues at full speed and the height of the bridge legs reaches 50-60 meters, Yıldırım said, “These feet will be shaped by the end of the year. It continues as we programmed. There is no hitch. We are not behind the program either. Our goal is to complete the third bridge and roads in 2015. This will be a world record if we can finish it. ”
Evaluating the environmental debate about the third bridge Yildirim said that environmentalists were largely convinced, and there were some misunderstandings about it. Yıldırım said that it is understandable that such big projects are discussed very much and environmental sensitivity comes to the forefront, he said:
However, we had to explain something better in this project. While we were choosing this route, we chose the route that will affect the least in terms of environment and water basins in the north of Istanbul with worry. This route is always the place where coal mines are located, it is a region which is full of holes and exploited lands. This bridge and also the third airport also contribute greatly to the rehabilitation of the degraded lands and bringing them back to Istanbul. The news that the huge tree was cut is completely unrealistic.
If we focus everything on the environment, this time the need of the country, the development of the country will be another spring. If we say the most important problem of Istanbul, every person in Istanbul comes to mind, traffic comes. The environment is not immediately pronounced. We should not move away from the center of work. Moreover, the environmental issue can also be carried out together with the projects. Nobody is already willing to finance without environmental impact assessments. While getting the EIA report to even the smallest project, it is not possible to do business in such a big project without getting it because the financiers are very careful in this regard.
