- The foot of the bridge has passed 90 meters: 3, which will be one of the world's leading bridges under construction with high engineering and technology. The Bosphorus Bridge and North Marmara Motorway continue to work in full swing.
In studies performed on the European Side with the 24 hour shift system, the length of the feet on both sides of the bridge has exceeded the 90 meter.
President Abdullah Gül, President of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Cemil Çiçek and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's participation in 29 May 2013'de Garipçe Village of Sarıyer and Beykoz Poyrazköy located between the 3. The construction of the Bosphorus Bridge and the Northern Marmara Motorway (between Odayeri-Paşaköy and the connection roads) and the viaducts on the Asian and European sides continue uninterruptedly.
Foreign engineers, including the Japanese, are also found on the construction site where the majority of Turkish engineers work. A continuous work of concrete is produced on the bridges where a feverish work is exhibited and the 2-3 meter is increased daily. 65 workers are working on a tower foot. The length of the feet on both sides of the bridge has passed the 90 meter.
North Marmara Motorway (including 3. Bosphorus Bridge) Odayeri-Paşaköy (including 3. Bosphorus Bridge) was contracted with Build-Operate-Transfer model and a contract was signed on 15 May 2013. 3 included in the project. Bosphorus (Yavuz Sultan Selim) Bridge is planned to be completed and opened to traffic in 2015 year.
3. The Bosphorus Bridge is the world's longest and the world's tallest tower with 58.4 m tower height.
“WILL BE PLANTED AS 5 TIMES OF WOOD”
In the statement made by the General Directorate of Highways, the following information about the 3rd Bosphorus Bridge was also included:
“Istanbul, which is the largest city in our country, has a great density in terms of traffic due to the fact that both daily urban travels and transcontinental transits are provided by roads of 87%. 600 cars equivalent pass through the Bosphorus and FSM Bridges, which bear the burden of road transport between Asia and Europe, which is 2,5 times the planned capacity of the bridges. During the day, the traffic hours on the bridge are increasing and the crossing times are found due to the vehicle queues in the ring roads that provide access to the bridges. Simultaneous loss of time and fuel, interruption of transit freight transport, and economic and social negative consequences of the drivers' journeys becoming frustrated. In addition, over-capacity traffic transports cause shortening of the service life of the existing Bosphorus bridges.
In addition to all these data, when the data such as population, number of cars and journeys per person are evaluated in line with the projections; The need for a third bridge over the Bosporus is evident. Based on this need, it is also an integrated city and national railway network for the purpose of reducing the traffic density in the urban and existing Bosphorus bridges of Istanbul, enabling the vehicles to make uninterrupted, safe and comfortable passes, and providing transit passes for trucks carrying transit freight without entering the city traffic. The construction of the Northern Marmara Highway, including the 3rd Bosphorus Bridge, which includes the railroad crossing, was decided. While deciding on the bridge crossing and highway routes, the green areas are determined to have the least corridor and the route is equipped with tunnels and viaducts in order to minimize the damage to the nature. 5 times the number of trees remaining on the route will be planted in the areas to be shown by the Regional Directorate of Forestry in the next 3 years, and an ecological bridge will be placed on the route to prevent wildlife interruption. ”
