The Opening Date of the Haliç Metro Crossing Bridge Has Been Determined: The test drive of the Haliç Metro Crossing Bridge, which will connect Taksim Metro to Yenikapı, is tried to be completed on October 29. The first test drive on the metro and bridge will be carried out by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the day of the opening of Marmaray, which will connect Asia and Europe. Test drives will then take approximately two months. The bridge, which is expected to be used by 1 million passengers, will enter the service of Istanbul residents in January 2014.
BRIDGE STATION COMES OUT
There is a station located in the middle of the bridge, which is like the keel of the bridge, which is almost finished. Those who get off here will be able to reach both sides of the walkways on both sides of the bridge and watch the Golden Horn from the observation decks.
For the bridge that will cross the Golden Horn, 21 projects were submitted to the Conservation Board until the construction. The current project, prepared by architect Hakan Kıran, passed by the Preservation Board in 2005 and UNESCO's World Heritage List, with its 82-meter-long carrier towers dropping to 65 meters. Taksim-Yenikapı metro line consists of 5,2 stations with a total length of 4 km. Taksim metro continues its way under Süleymaniye with the Golden Horn crossing bridge, which is built in Azapkapı on the skirts of Şişhane.
LENGTH 460 METERS
Haliç metro pass bridge, which is 180 meters above the water level, which cost 13 million liras, is 460 meters long. The bridge carries 936 feet of 5 meters in length with viaducts on both sides. When the Haliç Metro Pass Bridge test runs, one of the most important stages of the Istanbul Metro, are completed, passengers boarding from Hacıosman will reach the Yenikapı transfer station without interruption. Here with the Marmaray link, Kadıköy-Kartal, Bakırköy-Atatürk Airport or Bağcılar-Olimpiyatköyü- will be able to reach Başakşehir in a short time.
